This review is from: Torchwood: Slow Decay (Hardcover)
This is a book guaranteed to send a shiver down your spine. This book takes a little bit of time and patience to get into but once the action begins I couldn't put it down. This book contains a lot of bad language and some sex scenes that are quite frankly... disgusting, but this adds to the tension as sex and food are joined together in a strange mix.
The story is based around a diet clinic who offer no quibble easy weight loss, with one pill to start losing weight and one pill to stop it. But, as you would expect in any Torchwood storyline, there are added complications the subject will become hungrier and hungrier. As their appetite grows, so does the food they eat, from pizzas to pigeons, to their friends, to themselves, the victims slowly decay and become more ravenous. The Torchwood team race to discover what this could be to do with a mood transmitting device and save the lives of the ravenous victims. Unfortunately one of these victims is Reece.
