What’s Your Liquid Fear? (Anita Molkesky)

What’s your biggest fear?

For Anita Molkesky, a former model and then an addicted porn actress called “Anita Mann,” the fear is noted by researcher Sebastian Briggs—desperate for attention, she uses her body because it’s the one thing that’s never been rejected.

Anita is the only one of the original research subjects in Liquid Fear that undergoes therapy, and she is the first to receive the booster dose that triggers the chemicals planted in her system 10 years before. Then her therapist dies (done in by Briggs’s goon), and she’s left wondering about these mysterious pills she’s been prescribed.

But, like the others in the original drug trial, she learns that she’d better take the pills…or else her carnal cravings will destroy her.

Can Anita Molkesky fend off the primal instincts or will forgetting bring her peace?

Dive into Liquid Fear and decide for yourself just how much fear is enough.

PhotobucketLIQUID FEAR: A Mystery Thriller

By Scott Nicholson

When Roland Doyle wakes up with a dead woman in his motel room, the only clue is a mysterious vial of pills bearing the label “Take one every 4 hrs or else.”

Ten years before, six people were involved in a secret pharmaceutical trial that left one of them murdered and five unable to remember what happened. Now the experiment is continuing, as Dr. Sebastian Briggs wants to finish his research into fear response and post-traumatic stress disorder. He’s backed by a major drug company and an ambitious U.S. Senator, but he also has a personal stake in the outcome.

Only by taking the mysterious pills can the survivors stave off the creeping phobias, carnal impulses, and madness that threaten to consume them. But the pills have an unexpected side effect—the survivors start remembering the terrible acts they perpetrated a decade ago. They are lured back to the Monkey House, the remote facility where the original trials took place, and Briggs has prepared it for their arrival.

Now they are trapped, they each have only one pill left, and cracks are forming in their civilized veneer.

After the pills are gone, there’s only one option. “Or else.”

Read about it at Haunted Computer or view it at Amazon US, Amazon UK,, or Smashwords.

So when you say that you are "not really a southern vampire chick." Are you not really southern --- not really a vampire --- or not really a chick???

Scott, the problem with this book: It's too damn real. I'm enjoying it and hope I won't catch the Fear/Rage bug.

Brenda said...

Greatly enjoying reading Liquid Fear, but now, Scott, you better send me a pill to get Achy Breaky Heart out of my head. varbonoff22 at cox dot net

Elsewhere you mentioned a possible sequel title: "Gaseous Panic"--or something like that. I think I'm suffering from that right now (or maybe it's the asperagus I had at dinner?). Keep up the great work (what else do you have to do now that you are gainfully unemployed--lucky!) CHEERS!

Abby said...
