THE GIRL IN 6E
The Girl in 6E is uniquely twisted and captivates from the beginning. The premise is entirely original, as are the characters and the pacing. The main character may be a cold killer, but inside is a woman with a soul who sacrifices everything to keep from unleashing herself on the world. The story delves into the world of sex via webcam, and there are many details about unusual sexual practices and fetishes. Torre has written a beautifully warped thriller that will be staying with this reviewer for
a long time to come.
Jessica hasn’t touched another human being in three years. She’s a shut- in who suffers from a chilling psychosis. Good thing she has Internet access — it’s how she makes a living, and how she survives. Jessica is quite possibly the most popular recluse, as hundreds of men are happy to pay $6.99 per minute to watch her perform their requests. She provides them with satisfaction and they give her a distraction from her lust for blood. But after spending years hidden away to protect the world from her murderous intent, she must leave the safety of her apartment to save a little girl’s life. (REDHOOK, Jul., 352 pp., $20.00)
