Curse of the Old Gypsy Man
Billy Halleck, good husband, loving father, is both beneficiary and victim of the American Good Life: he has an expensive home, a nice family, and a rewarding career as a lawyer. But he is also fifty pounds overweight and, as his doctor keeps reminding him, heading into heart attack country.
Then, in a moment of carelessness, Billy sideswipes an old gypsy woman as she is crossing the street—and her ancient father passes a bizarre and terrible judgment on him.
Thinner,” the old gypsy man whispers, and caresses his cheeks like a lover. Just one word but six weeks later and ninety-three pounds lighter, Billy Halleck is more than worried. Hes terrified. And desperate enough for one last gamble that will lead him to a nightmare showdown with the forces of evil melting his flesh away.
When heavy-set attorney Billy Halleck accidentally kills an old gypsy woman, his dreams of losing weight turn into a nightmare — as an ancient curse threatens to eat him right down to the bone....
When an old gypsy man curses Billy Halleck for sideswiping his daughter, six weeks later he's ninety-three pounds lighter. Now Billy is terrified. And desperate enough for one last gamble...that will lead him to a nightmare showdown with the forces of evil melting his flesh away.
