A few lines from “Let The Dead Stay Dead”

Here are a few lines from my psychological novel, now ready for publication: “Let The Dead Stay Dead.”

She went to a beauty salon in Bangalore that very afternoon. The glitzy board over the shop read, “Mac’s Miracle Makeovers.” She said, “I want a total make over for a stage show in which I am performing. Make me more glamorous, more hep. People shouldn’t recognize me. I want to surprise my boy friend.” The hair dresser replied, “Madam, when I am through even your mother won’t recognize you.”

He went on cheerfully, “So many girls come to me from small towns. Wanting to change their looks for the Big City. I transform them. Many do not want to go back after changing their looks, and their lives.” He was a chatty sort and she listened attentively as he said, “No major surgery involved.” He laughed at his own joke. “It’s the small things that make a big difference. A mole where there was none. Eyebrows shaped differently. Accentuating or downplaying the eyes. These are tricks of the trade.”

Whether he was Mac or not she couldn’t say but when he was through, the makeover was miraculous.
