Veiled Consequences

The experiment had gone horribly wrong.

Dave, invisible. Nothing would reverse the process. Tried reverse engineering his molecular chamber: nada. Chemistry: a bust. Prayer: a joke. A voodoo priestess: dead end, giving her a heart attack when he spoke.

Then the dog attack. Sepsis infection. Had to amputate his own leg. Damn Chihuahua.

Prosthetic experiments went badly. The MC did nothing. Blown glass: shattered. Clear plastic: no give.  Finally, Dave gave in and ordered an off the rack one. It did the job, but now? Slightly visible.

It was fun, though, freaking people out when he went to the store.

  1. Now we know definitively why that prosthesis is standing allone ( or not so alone) in the town square. Too bad you can’t fool a chihuahua! Apparently his patented invisibility does not cover up smells or sounds, and that’s all that dog needs to attack! Disturbingly funny.

  2. I assume Dave was a mailman since he was attacked by a dog, though a Chihuahua is the lowest form of dog in my opinion (more of a rat). I got a visual image of the prosthetic leg hoping down the street. That certain would freak people out.

    • I’ve really enjoyed those Cormoran Strike books as well. I just found out two things: there is a TV series, and a fourth book should be published in a few months!!! Thanks for reminding me, Roy.
