Jigsaw Man by Gord Rollo (CBR-IV #22)

Cannonball Read IV: Book #22/52
Published: 2012
Pages: 288
Genre: Horror

Jigsaw Man is a kind of campy horror novel about a guy named Michael Fox. I know. I really wish novels would research their character names better so I don't have to picture Michael J. Fox getting his appendages chopped off. Anyways, Michael Fox is a homeless guy who is contemplating suicide when he gets an offer from a rich guy who wants to pay him two million dollars for his right arm. Well, he's left handed and was going to kill himself anyways, so why not? However, when someone wants to pay a ton of money for one of your body parts, RUN AWAY. It's probably too good (not to mention bizarre) to be true. 

The story is fast moving and fairly interesting if you like pulpy horror. It's not going to wow you in a literary sense, but it a nice throw-away novel to read by the pool.
