Caress of a Psychopath
The dark and horrifying 'Prequel' to the Blood Touch series.....
Matthew Clarizio-- better known as 'Sallos' to his Gratista vampire cohorts, makes a debut with his tale of hardships, misadventures and 'sexcapades' during his human life and after his vampiric transition in "Caress of a Psychopath",--a 'semi-autobiography'... of sorts.
Sallos, part of the elusive Gratista vampire clan, dishes out violence that’s haphazardly over-the-top, gleefully exacts revenge on enemies with alarming creativity, has sexual romps that would put the most self-proclaimed gigolo to shame, while dealing with the biggest mental battle of his life on a daily basis—the untimely loss of his parents and his one true love, Zeena. Not only does Sallos’s behavior upset human and vampire alike, but his conduct sometimes makes his loyalty to his clan very questionable…
"In command of her career, she’s one of the few who’s truly found her niche and a resulting gothic genre fandom always eager for more of what she dishes out. What she writes is explicitly no holds barred and her storytelling is executed with a tortured fuck-you prose and passion that makes reading her a hell of a lot of unbridled fun."---Nicholas Grabowsky, Diverse Media (www.Downwarden.com)
MORE READER COMMENTS....
"This is a hard read for those who are of a delicate nature, but if you wonder what it takes to make a leader in a family clan of Vampires; namely the Philadelphia Gratista Clan, Ms. Santiago has laid out the recipe and leaves no stone unturned... no matter how gritty. The sex is blunt and explicit as life on the street makes it. Death happens and the reader soon sees how delicate is the thread that keeps us here. Along the way, the equally delicate balance of the Gratista Clan in their desire to survive, surfaces. For the reader to not find similarities to their own life is unusual." ---review by Steve Spider
"...sometimes it doesn't take much for Sallos to feel that he has been wronged! Many of his vendettas may seem shocking, but they are always accompanied by Sallos' darkly humorous comments, and Santiago provides us with a great mixture of horror and wit.
...His sexual adventures (and there are many) are written with steamy eroticism that would make any guy wish he could walk in Sallos' shoes!" ---D.Halk, Harrisburg, PA
"...it was scarily well written....If you like disturbing sick stuff, then you'll like something like this. The author must have put a lot of heart and soul into molding this guy to be what he is, because he was just too real for me..".---S. Collins, Philadelphia, PA
"He's such a vicious, cruel unrelenting bastard, and yet, he makes you see his side of things! The sex scenes are hot hot hot!!! Beyond scorching to the point where they're even a bit scary. Either you'll be panting, or your jaw will be dropping with shock in each situation."---H. Winstel, Philadelphia, PA
"“Caress Of A Psychopath” is a book with a very jagged edge...Sallos is an amazing character, giving true meaning to the word ‘psychopath’".---D.Demarco, Philadelphia, PA
"Miss Santiago takes us on a ride of total abandon with Sallos, a deviant and deliciously evil predator...His exploits are arcane and delightfully sinful. Make Sallos the archenemy of all that is sane and ordinary!"---M.L. Westbrook, Muir, MI
