Editorial reviews

This psychological suspense thriller in the tradition of Silence of the Lambs will have listeners loath to hit the pause button. Bad Karma follows psychopath Agnes Hatcher, institutionalized at Darden State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. When Agnes’ psychiatrist decides to take a vacation, she flies into a jealous rage, escapes from the hospital, and traces the erstwhile shrink - her one true love - to a remote California island. Performer Elizabeth Thompson delivers a roiling portrait of Agnes’ psychotic obsessions. Thompson’s adroit pacing lends authenticity to the unhinged heroine’s twisted mindset, as dour, depressive, psychosexual deliberations are punctured by ferocious flashes of violent mania, propelling this protagonist toward a cruel and captivating climax.

Publisher's summary

She'll ensure his vacation is anything but restful in this twisted thriller. "A sleek, smooth, and constantly surprising page-turner..." Bad Karma is a fast-paced, full-length suspense thriller of heart-pounding terror and reincarnation from critically-acclaimed, award-winning novelist, Douglas Clegg. Book #1 in the Criminally Insane series.

4 stars for style, 2 for story

Mr. Clegg can WRITE. Unlike a lot of modern authors, he has some real skills, but his story is formulaic and oh-so-predictable. C’mon, Doug. You can do better than this!.
