Part II of Christa Wojciechowski’s debut psychological suspense horror series continues. Welcome to the mind of John Branch.
What’s It About? ***Blurb*** How did John Branch get so sick? Part II of the disturbing psychological suspense series continues from the mind of John Branch. John Branch’s sickness has dominated the lives of all those around him, consuming all it can from well-intentioned doctors, compassionate strangers, and trusting loved ones. His chronic illness also bonds him intimately to his wife Susan, trapping them in relationship of unhealthy psychological attachment.
But John’s disease isn’t the only blight in the Branch family.
Injured and loaded with Demerol, John Branch tells his life story from his filthy sickbed and confesses the horrific secrets of the past. Most disturbing of all, he reveals the philosophy he’s constructed around his condition and tries to indoctrinate Susan. Will she stay with him now that she finally knows the truth, or will she put and end to the madness?
I’ve been looking forward to reading this installment of the SICK book series since I finished book one. You can’t imagine my delight when this book turned up in my email. 🙂 Special thanks to the author for offering me this book, in exchange for a fair, thoughtful, and honest book review.
Sicker explores John’s self-mutilation and Munchhausen syndrome. Where Book 1 was told from the point of view of Susan, Book 2 is told from the perspective of John Branch. In this installment, we learn more about John’s disorder, as well as his upbringing which lends clues as to why he’s the man he is today. The story picks up within the same scene that Book 1 ended.Author Christa Wojo’s writing is very descriptive and vivid, lending the sense that you are in the room observing the characters. John’s character is more sympathetic in this installment, as we learn his shocking backstory. I really enjoyed getting to know John Branch.
