Amazon.com Review of Beginnings on May 6, 2009
Henry Hermann, author, co-author, and editor of 15 books on diverse topics, has been a writer, professor, and writer most of his life. Much of his research and writing have been directed toward understanding the behavior of humans and other social animals.
Cover by Bradford Shaw Hermann
You really don't know what a serial killer is like until you have one born and raised in your neighborhood. Spawned from an unprecedented genetic cross, the birth of a demented male child called Lance Housler grows up to be one of the nation's most enigmatic murderers, in spite of being under the watchful eyes of law enforcement and a team of psychologists.
Although under careful scrutiny by psychologists most of his life, Lance manages to carry out his terrible deeds without detection until the timely collaboration of three important people leads to his identity.
Under investigation by FBI Special Agent Patricia Clayton, he contemplates his next move, away from the close scrutiny of those he had suspected of spying on him all along. At his apartment, where human body parts and pictures of his victims are grim representations of people who had experienced his perverted mind, Special Agent Clayton discovers how he reminisced about the people he had violent relationships with.
Henry Hermann’s earlier novel, Beginnings, portrayed humanoids, their behavior and environment as they actually must have been 200,000 years ago, at the dawn of human emergence. The Tooth Fairy takes us to yet another level of human behavior, one which involves a twisted mind in a contemporary setting, revealing what can happen when the human genome is tampered with.
The Tooth Fairy has recently been released. Request a copy at Barnes & Noble, Double Day Bookstore, Books-A-Million, Amazon.com and the Xlibris Corporation.
