FLOODGATES OF UNIMAGINABLE HORROR

Two gifted young physicians burning with the will to heal,soul mates as well as lovers.From that first moment in the medical center when pathology resident Cassandra Cassidy meets brilliant cardiac surgeon Thomas Kingsley,she knows they are meant to be together.Forced by a deteriorating eye condition to switch from her chosen field to psychiatry,Cassandra needs the support and approval the charismatic doctor so passionately offers; and Thomas,privileged only child of banker-industrialist,finds in the beautiful and vulnerable girl the boundless devotion he so desperately requires.                                                                                                                                            

But as Thomas continues his meteoric rise,what should have been fairytale happiness begins to disintegrate.Saintly to an adoring public,Thomas is something other to the woman who loves him,an erratic and hostile stranger whose inexplicable rages and bizarre behavior are increasingly disturbing.As the solidity of Cassandra’s marriage begins to crumble,the dependable security of the hospital world around her seems equally menaced: Cassandra is convinced that someone is killing terminal patients,someone who holds the power of life and death in his hands and who wields it like the angel of death.Against her husband’s furious objections,Cassandra takes it upon herself to stop the killings even as she fights to save her marriage.Only after she stumbles onto a terrifying discovery is she forced to realize that her dreams have metamorphosed into nightmares and that her search for the truth has opened the floodgates of unimaginable horror.

ROD STEWART – HAVE I TOLD YOU LATELY

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Have I told you there’s no one else above you?
Fill my heart with gladness,take away all my sadness
Ease my troubles,that’s what you do

For the morning sun in all it’s glory
Meets the day with hope and comfort too
You fill my life with laughter,somehow you make it better
Ease my troubles,that’s what you do

There’s a love less defined
And its yours and its mine
Like the sun
And at the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray
To the one,to the one

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Have I told you there’s no one else above you?
Fill my heart with gladness,take away all my sadness
Ease my troubles,that’s what you do

There’s a love less defined
And its yours and its mine
Like the sun
And at the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray
To the one,to the one

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Have I told you there’s no one else above you?
Fill my heart with gladness,take away all my sadness
Ease my troubles,that’s what you do

Take away all my sadness,fill my life with gladness
Ease my troubles,that’s what you do

For my saturday morning relaxation.

UNRELENTING SILENCE

Author Cassandra Fallows has achieved remarkable success by baring her life on the page.Her two widely popular memoirs continue to sell briskly,acclaimed for their brutal,unexpurgated candor about friends,family,lovers and herself.But now,after a singularly unsuccessful stab at fiction, Cassandra believes she may have found the story that will enable her triumphant return to nonfiction.

When Cassandra was a girl, growing up in a racially diverse middle-class neighborhood in Baltimore,her best friends were all black: elegant, privileged Donna; sharp,shrewd Tisha;wild and worldly Fatima.A fifth girl orbited their world a shy,quiet,unobtrusive child named Calliope Jenkins who,years later,would be accused of killing her infant son.Yet the boy’s body was never found and Calliope’s unrelenting silence on the subject forced a judge to jail her for contempt.For seven years, Calliope refused to speak and the court was finally forced to let her go. Cassandra believes this still unsolved real-life mystery,largely unknown outside Baltimore,could be her next bestseller.But her homecoming and latest journey into the past will not be welcomed by everyone,especially by her former friends,who are unimpressed with Cassandra’s success and are insistent on their own version of their shared history.And by delving too deeply into Calliope’s dark secrets,Cassandra may inadvertently unearth a few of her own forcing her to reexamine the memories she holds most precious,as the stark light of truth illuminates a mother’s pain,a father’s betrayal . . . and what really transpired on a terrible day that changed not only a family but an entire country.
