Ben Bluman is in a coma. Ben is about to relive more than just his life as we take a look deep into his thoughts, mind and actions. As we meet Ben for the first time he is about to be offered the job of a lifetime in a small and rising company. Ben is hired, on the spot, as CFO and Vice President. Salary really not what he expected but explained as the rise to success would take time and effort proving himself to those in charge. Let’s meet the players of this cutthroat company. We have Bob Janklaw the owner and James Sims the employment manager. Each of these men’s roles is quite unique and different yet if you look closely one is almost what you might call a figurehead. Mary White is Bob’s assistant and the brains of the operation or shall we say she steers him in the right direction since he wouldn’t know which way to go without her. Next, Fred, his stepson gives our Ben the inside scoop on everything. What he reveals about the company is confidential and stays within the mind of Ben and cannot be shared at this time. The setting of this intricate novel is ICU at St. Bernard’s Hospital in Chicago and the year is 1982. Ben’s dreams are quite graphic and the reader is led inside his inner most thoughts, fears and his work place. As we meet the office staff, the bosses and the assistants we begin to wonder exactly what this company really does and what other hidden secrets lie behind the closed doors. Marie White is his go between and the boss’s assistant. Just how powerful is she and what does she stand to gain? When Mike Rich is found dead on Lake Street everyone in the company is information but business as usual continues as if nothing happened.
The author takes us back to the Days Inn and Ben Bluman’s thoughts. He becomes paranoid, hears voices that tell him to take down and kill the people he works with. So, why would some of them wind up dead? What happens when Ben decides to enlighten the spouses of some of the company executives and why do some wind up like Mike Rich? Voices in his head directing his actions or trying to control his actions as Ben and the authors let the reader know that sometimes what we think within our subconscious mind just might be true or come true. But, is what we hear and learn his reality, reality in itself or something else? Crossing this man can prove to be more than just dangerous. Marie White learns the hard way and will many others.
Many would wind up dead before all is said and done. Those that cross his path and defy others will pay a high price. Some will go because the voices are telling him what to do. While he appears to be sleeping Ben sees himself in many different places carrying out the anger he possess against those he works for, thinks are doing the wrong thing and hopes to deplete the world of all of them. Changes in the regime at work and lives ruined and one man just smiles and sits back, dreams or just lets it happen or did it? As the author flashes back to 1971 and a government experiment that our patient, called Peter Smith is now a part of as well as the doctors at this hospital. Sent to a clinic and then given experimental drugs we find Peter Smith using many new names, doing many jobs and eventually back in his bed in Chicago when the plot fast forwards again. One man committed many sins and although he might be in a coma he is managing to relive all of the evils he has done to so many. Just how he got there and what happened at Ridgewood Clinic is in the patient files and cannot be revealed.
When Ben finally wakes up and tries to reenter the world we learn more about the deceits, lies and dangerous experiments that he has been exposed to and the reader is a witness to the rage, anger and the fear he encountered within himself and the outcome will send chills down the reader’s spine and make you wonder just what really goes on inside these clinics, what experiments are being done and who is Ben Bluman? Author Joseph Parente takes us through the second half of the book and Ben’s actions, his jobs, his lies and the final outcome. What happens when someone has untreated schizophrenia? What happens when the rage sets in and the tragedies keep coming? What happens? A great psychological drama with an ending only these two authors created and one man whose life was in his own mind or was it? Coma Sins: What are yours?
