Shaving Without a Razor, by Terry Gavin —I read this book in one sitting while I was on vacation. After seeing the movie, Coraline, I needed a book to distract me from the creepy and disturbing visions that movie put in my brain. This book put in all the other creepy, disturbing visions I might not have gotten from Coraline! Here’s a product description from AMAZON Shaving Without a Razor is the thrilling debut novel by actor Terry Gavin. Set in the midst of opulent wealth and excess, Chris McDermott returns to his childhood home for his thirty-second birthday, his brother’s wedding, and to die, for this Wunderkind of corporate finance can no longer outrun the frightening events that ensued seven years prior. Chris’ three day journey becomes nothing less than a dizzying dash to the bottom as he encounters a brother’s betrayal, child pornography, male prostitution, and his best friend’s impending death. This novel takes the reader on a wild ride through supreme wealth, gut-wrenching memories, and horrors that no family should ever encounter. Gavin’s stunning debut novel announces the arrival of a new voice in American literature.
