Publisher's Summary

In his account of the sensational life and murder of Grady Stiles Jr., also known as the legendary carnival freak Lobster Boy, author Fred Rosen explains how Stiles' death was engineered by his wife, Mary Teresa, the carny known as the Electrified Girl. Rosen describes how Mary Teresa arranged for her husband's murder after years of physical and emotional abuse.

During Mary Teresa's dramatic trial, Rosen becomes a character in his own book. When both he and the prosecution are threatened by Mary Teresa's daughter, who Rosen believes was a co-conspirator although she was never indicted; the writer risks his life in pursuit of the truth and the evidence that leads to Mary Teresa's conviction.

    Story
    "Hard to listen to"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator. It was a fascinating story, but just having to listen to the bad film noir attempt at narration made it almost impossible to finish the book.


    Would you recommend Lobster Boy to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not. I would recommend to READ the book as opposed to listen.


    What didn’t you like about Neil Helligers’s performance?

    Tried to hard to be edgy. Bad Film Noir attempt. Very difficult to listen to.


    Do you think Lobster Boy needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope. He covered all there is to cover.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't listen to if you're tired.
