WANNABE PRIDE’S BOOK PICK OF THE WEEK IS:
Mask of Flies by Eric Lietten
Rick Soblinski, a caretaker at Oak Leaf Retirement Home, has a new resident in his hallway: an extremely disfigured Jane Doe. She was found abandoned at a sister facility.
In her presence, Rick is stifled by anxiety and determines that the woman’s maladies extend far beyond the surface. The experience manifests into a bizarre nightmare that bleeds into reality, changing everything.
Allie, Rick’s older girlfriend and alpha-businesswoman, copes with his erratic behavior; Oak Leaf’s Office Manager, Tony Delgado, is determined to find the disfigured woman’s family; and the retirement home’s administration endures a string of disappearances of both staff and patients alike. Multiple pathways converge to uncover the Jane Doe’s origins and ultimate purpose.
