Publisher's Summary

A broken man down on his luck...

Michael Fox is a homeless man living in a garbage dumpster beneath the Carver Street Bridge in Buffalo, NY. He's bitterly depressed and ready to commit suicide; anything to put an end to his miserable existence.

An offer too good to refuse...

When a mysterious billionaire surgeon offers Michael two million dollars for his right arm, he thinks his luck might be about to change. Little does he know that the surgeon has other plans for him. His arm is only the beginning. Bit by bit other pieces of Michael's body are surgically removed; his natural body stripped away and then reassembled using other harvested parts from thirteen different 'donors'.

A modern day Frankenstein...

Now Fox isn't sure if he's a man or a monster, or whether or not he'd be better off dead. One thing he is sure of though, he's not checking out of this world until he finds a way to make the people responsible pay for turning him into the experimental nightmare known as... The Jigsaw Man.

BLESS, THEIR LITTLE COLD HEARTS

FLESH SUIT
What a find!! This is a well written, beautifully narrated Horror story with a character I loved. The main character in the story is an extremely likable guy, which makes the horror more horrific. For the first two hours, it seemed like the story was not going to be a horror, just a sad story about a homeless guy and I didn't care cause I was just enjoying getting to know the character. Then horrible things start happening and really horrible things start happening to the character I had grown so fond of. The story has a mad scientist element to it, which is always a plus for me. At the time of this review I am the 19th person to rate this book. What a shame that such a great book is getting ignored. I am guessing cause Gord Rollo is not well known?

Other rare finds
I have been really lucky recently and have managed to come upon some really good books that seemed to have been flying under the radar. Here is a list with the number of ratings at this date: Ourselves by S.G. Redling (14), Swamp Monster Massacre by Hunter Shea (36), Wolf Hunt by Jeff Strand (59), Meg by Steve Alten (135), Necroscope by Brian Lumley (149), and Cattle by Joseph Duncan (233). I need to give a shout out to fellow reviewer Kim Venatries who lead me to Wolf Hunt, thanks.

You want horror, you got it here!

When it comes down to it, Jigsaw Man is simply a story about fear, cowardice, and overcoming them to dispense revenge. That will assault your emotions with it’s heart wrenching cruelty and explicit goriness. Gord Rollo was able to capture my full attention and toss my mind around until I thought I couldn’t take any more and start all over again.

This is a story about a coward named Michael Fox. To me he is a coward because he has let various fears turn his life upside down only to end up as a nameless homeless name. He is unwilling to face his fear that it was his fault his family died. He cannot face is surviving daughter based on the fear the she blames him for their death. All of this fear leads him to do what many do in these situations, drink and drink heavily, use any substance available to flatten or diminish these emotions from coming to the surface.

Soon he has taken all he can from his self inflicted inner turmoil and decides to end it all. Right before he could accomplish this he is approached by a mysterious stranger. Who offers him two million ($2,000,000) dollars for his right arm. Being a left handed person Mike thought this sounded like a perfect opportunity to turn his life around and to provide for his daughter.

Up until this point the book was disturbing yes but compared to what’s left it was very tame.

Mike soon finds that he is not the only one to be recruited for body parts, others are selling their left arm and both legs. Leading him to believe that there is more going on than meets the eye. I cannot divulge too much more without giving critical information away.

Jigsaw Man might be the horror novel that for whatever reason you pass by. Don’t let this happen to you. I would have never guessed that I was going to like this adventure a into truly sick and twisted disturbingly refreshing modern reinventing of the old classic Frankenstein’s Monster. That made my soul feel dirty and awkward for enjoying such a brutal and unsettling tale.

Michael Ray Davis doesn’t have the type of voice you would expect from and audio performer. Not at all a polished commanding voice. But a very unique deep gravely “redneck” type voice. Which happens to lend itself very well to a man that drinks Sterno and has had a very hard life.

loved it.

Dark and emotional and clever. I enjoyed the main characters point of view. The story was well read by the narrator, dig his gravely voice.
