Synopsis

The first victim, brutally assaulted, literally dies of fright in the emergency room, and Dr. Julie Charmaine must find out why. A psychiatrist, an advocate for battered women, and a noted sleep researcher, Dr. Charmaine has only two clues to the beautiful young woman's death: she reeks of the city's sewers and her last word was the Spanish slang for monkey.

 Vicki Zampisi, tormented by twin memories of terror and lost love, begins an odyssey of vengeance. But when she is attacked in the run-down hotel where she was once betrayed, she is put under the care of Dr. Julie Charmaine, and the terrified woman's dreams reveal there is more to this cold-blooded serial killer the L.A. press have dubbed the "Sewer Stalker" than Vicki is letting on.

 Eager investors have rewarded Dr. Wesley Kovacs lavishly for his groundbreaking cryonics research and he will let nothing stand between him and the Nobel Prize--not even an experiment that has gone horribly awry.

THE UNNATURAL is a twisted horror tale of cryonics, sex, revenge, murder and the bizarre hybrid creature that leaves an entire city cowering in fear.

Alan Nayes is the author of GARGOYLES, BARBARY POINT, SMILODON, and GIRL BLUE.
