About this title


Curse of the Old Gypsy Man?

Billy Halleck, good husband, loving father, is both beneficiary and victim of the American Good Life: he has an expensive home, a nice family, and a rewarding career as a lawyer. But he is also fifty pounds overweight and, as his doctor keeps reminding him, heading into heart attack country.

Then, in a moment of carelessness, Billy sideswipes an old gypsy woman as she is crossing the street?and her ancient father passes a bizarre and terrible judgment on him.

?Thinner,? the old gypsy man whispers, and caresses his cheeks like a lover. Just one word?but six weeks later and ninety-three pounds lighter, Billy Halleck is more than worried. He?s terrified. And desperate enough for one last gamble?that will lead him to a nightmare showdown with the forces of evil melting his flesh away.
