Brian D’Amato Scares & Thrills with ‘Beauty’

A very interesting book, this story comes out of the blue and offers the reader something they didn’t expect. Although books have beenBeauty written about the egotistical ‘jet set’ before, D’Amato sets his tale apart by not only offering action, suspense and a little gore, but also provides a very scary learning experience for anyone who’s still not sure what, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” really means.  

Present-day New York City is where the ‘richies’ live. Not only do they have enough money to buy and sell all their pretend friends, but they also believe that physical beauty is the end all and be all of their lives.

Here in the Big Apple lives an artist/plastic surgeon who is not really a plastic surgeon at all. In fact, Jamie D’Angelo is a New York artist who is definitely preoccupied with the perfect face. In his odd wanderings and learning experiences, he has discovered a procedure that will absolutely and without a doubt make women beautiful…on the outside. This particular procedure is neither legal nor approved by the medical community, which means Jamie has to run his practice secretly.

With a very expensive lifestyle, Jamie likes to ‘hob nob’ with the rich and famous and many of them have become his acquaintances. His main goal is to literally ‘build a face of great beauty’ so that he can be recognized by one and all as an absolute genius. When he finally fulfills his dream however, the experiment goes horribly wrong. Jamie’s fantasy of being the ‘King of Beauty’ will come to a seriously interesting pinnacle that no reader will ever forget.

The author has done a terrific job with this book and many folks will read it for many different reasons. However, if your friend does happen to speak happily about ‘nip/tuck,’ and they don’t mean the old TV show, this book is most definitely one to hand out as a ‘must read.’ For all other suspense lovers, this IS a ‘must read’ for the simple fact that the story is extremely interesting and offers a plot and characters you’ll be talking about at the water cooler for months to come.
