This novel-much like my previous book, "Omens"-deals with adult themes of abuse and domestic violence. I find it abhorring that sex offenders "with a high likelihood of re-offending" are being put back in our societies, often near schools and day care centers. This novel, a curious blend of fact and fiction, serves to remind us that there are monsters in our midst-and at first glance, you probably wouldn't see them.Eric Watkins has recurring nightmares of his step-father, The Tall Man-though Eric hasn't seen him in years and still blames him for horrific abuses in the past.Unbeknownst to Eric, The Tall Man has been obsessed with writing a dramatic screenplay, "Glass," in which The Tall Man seeks revenge on Eric for destroying a once-happy home.When the two are brought together and the drama explodes onto the stage of reality, lives are irreparably altered-including that of a police chief who is caught in the middle.
