The Cabinet Of Dr Blessing

By Jack Rollins

First of all I`m very upset with Mr. Rollins…he hasn’t finish the series yet, it was like someone pulled the rugs out from under me, the book has been building and building then you turn a page and it is continued in Part 4.  Damn, the story is written so well that you are drawn into it at the very beginning and when you think you have it figured out it goes into a totally different direction.

The town of Plainfield is where we lay our scene, a small, quiet community in Ohio. The main strip is filled with family-owned, traditional businesses, until one day, a fast food chain sets up store and becomes the novelty place to be for the town’s inhabitants.

Almost immediately, things take a sinister turn; the chronic stomach problems, the strange behaviours, the disappearances and the unstoppable gluttony of the fast food joint’s patrons.
