“…flabbergasted … by the magnitude (bigger than Our Bodies, Ourselves) … the multi-media Gesamtkunstwerk ambitions … the Joycean wordplay … exuberant code-switching, diction-mixing, blending of disparate linguistic ingredients into previously unknown harmonies and cacophonies. Like Finnegans Wake or The Anatomy of Melancholy … I look forward to dipping into it for years to come”—CHRISTOPHER MILLER, AUTHOR

“The term 'page turner' was coined for this book”—LITERARY TITAN.

"…a roller-coaster that keeps you on the edge of your seat … an extraordinary reading experience … bound to keep you glued to your seat till the very end."—ONLINE BOOK CLUB

“…the creative genius of Landon is delivered at full throttle … I loved this book … a wholly unique concept … Highly recommended!”—READERS’ FAVORITE

“…a thriller novel unlike any other…”.”—URBAN BOOK REVIEWS

“…one of those ‘oh my gosh!’ books … totally outlandish … genius…”—READERS’ FAVORITE

“…monumental … Perils of Pauline on steroids … masterful, stylistic and complex … uniquely entertaining and truly worth experiencing.—AUTHORSREADING

"…an experience not to be missed!"—GOLFWELL

“…not for the faint of heart.”—READERS’ FAVORITE

“…impossible to put down…"—RED HEADED BOOKREADER

Suffused with scathing satire from cover to cover, this award-winning “chamber novel” is a deeply unsettling, intellectually probing, neurotically supercharged, musico-graphically enriched psychological suspense thriller about the artfully revengineered conspiratorial undoing of a complacent, over-coddled, trust-funded teenage entitlement princess who is possessed of an eminently questionable code of ethics and morals. The book’s anti-heroine is a beautiful young heiress, socialite, and sugar-daddy-seeking subdebutantilizer called Melody whose inheritance comprises an immense fortune amassed through shareholder investments in the world’s largest employment recruiter: the multi-national temp agency behemoth known as the Pleasant Peasant Corporation. Insidiously sly on the uptake, Melody is quick to abuse her position of power for the purpose of tipping the inequitable scales of the socioeconomic system to her pecuniary advantage not only at the calamitous expense of those who are thousandfolds less privileged than she is but also to the grave detriment of rich and powerful sugar daddies who are, despite their social standings, vulnerable to the sexual machinations she sets in motion by dint of her coquettish charms with an eye to beguiling them out of their monetary assets in conjunction with prickteasing them into granting her unmerited favors to advance her career. She is under the smug delusion that she is achieving her aims by exploiting what she perceives to be their Achilles’ heels—i.e., their psycho-emotional impotence to resist her come-hither cajoleries. It is the age-old story of the filthy rich topfeeding from the pockets of the poor as well as that of a bewitching young seductress manipulating powerful men to achieve her nefarious ends. In the course of a 36-hour timespan our star-crossed heroine learns some rude lessons about life once the tables are turned in her disfavor, whence she experiences sharp vicissitudes of fortune and finds herself in the position of being bountifully force-fed outsized mouthfuls of a Reality Sandwich fixed in her honor by her exploitees and their vigilous cohorts.
