By Daniel House
What would you do to win back the love of your life? To what lengths would you go? In author Daniel House’s new book, “The Drug Rep,” former Army infantryman Jimmy Harden will go any length necessary to win back his love and ex-wife, Beth.
Lured by the promise of immortality, and believing that fame by any means would send Beth flying back to his side, Jimmy sets out on a path that will leave terror and destruction in his wake. Prompted by a magazine article that suggests being a serial killer is the quickest way to become famous, Jimmy hatches and follows through on a plan to that will leave readers both amazed at the ease and horrified at the consequences.This story has an interesting premise and in this reviewer’s opinion could have great potential. Mr. House has created a character that readers will have a strong reaction to, and the author is to be applauded for that achievement. He uses his own history and knowledge as a drug rep to create a scenario that few, if any, would have thought of. His story also leads the reader to ponder the questions: What motivates a man to kill innocent strangers? And what circumstances would lead you, the reader, to such a decision? Unfortunately, the thought process of the main character is difficult to believe, and the whole account is so full of crude language and multiple detailed accounts of bodily functions that this reviewer had a difficult time getting through the story.
