evil at heart

Gretchen Lowell is still on the loose and Archie Sheridan is still in the hospital.  It's been a couple of months since Archie tried to capture Gretchen and kill himself and he's doing better, but far from healed.  When eyeballs start turning up everyone's pretty sure Gretchen has killed again.  That means, it's time for Archie to check himself out and find her, but he gets sidetracked by a victim's family who think maybe their son has something to do with the most recent murders.

Once again Archie is the nutcase who does everything he's NOT supposed to do.  I'm starting to notice a pattern here.  Gretchen summons Archie, Archie goes, Susan follows, Archie gets hurt, Henry yells and Gretchen gets away.

It might have happened before, but it's still fun to read about it.

This time though there's a group of psycho Gretchen fans out there who may or may not be responsible for a new wave of terror in Portland.  Susan is determined to become a bona fide journalist and writing fluff pieces on what color Gretchen's hair might be isn't going to get here there.  She spends every morning sitting outside the hospital where Archie is hoping he'll finally see her so she can get his permission for her book. 

And Henry.....poor Henry just can't catch a break.  The next time he tells Archie and Susan to stay put he'd be better off just locking them up in a cell until they're out of danger cause they're never going to listen to him.

Chelsea Cain has no qualms about writing stuff that will make your stomach turn.  None.  At.  All.  And that, my friends, is good writing.
