Instead of dwelling on the thriller aspect, the collection focuses on how the choice to take an experimental pill impacts not only the lives of the test subjects, but also that of their spouses or significant others. The only thriller mention comes toward the end of the collection in a very short bonus section in which the villains from the first novel plot their next moves.
Since not everyone might like to read all the stories, I'm also offering a choice to read one or more separately. Catch a glimpse of the covers in the panorama below.
What the stories are about:
Who'll Mend This Broken Man - Desperation forces Consuela to order the Forever Young pill to cure her husband, Diego, from Parkinson’s Disease; but is the cure really a curse?
What I Did for Love - Strawberry blonde model, Sherri, sees her popularity fading, along with her looks. The pill can bring her fame and fortune, but what about love?
Too Much of a Good Thing - Ezekiel, an African-American male, can't get it up for his lady love, Luana. Will the pill draw them closer together or drive her away?
Suspicion - Doormat, Dee Dee Marshall, takes a bold step when evidence points to her husband's infidelity.
For the Love of Dog - Overweight Chicago Police Officer Walinski must pass a new physical or lose his job, along with his beloved canine partner. Can the young pill offer security, when danger lurks in the line of duty?
You may ask why anyone would want to read a short story or a collection of them? Here are some reasons:
- It's easier to finish a short story if you don't have much time, and don't enjoy keeping track of what happened the last time you put the book down.
- You're curious about how the theme will play out
- You enjoy variety
- Part of a series you're hooked on.
Any other reasons you can think of?
