The Pink Room

The Pink Room. A leading physicist attempts to use the science of string theory to bring his daughter back from the dead. Government agents and a best selling author race to find out if he succeeded.


There. From a distance. Soft and faint like rain on the roof, a melody floated down from above. Notes that jabbed the air like probing fingers. A sound like fairies dancing in an acid dream.

Fur Elise.

For Cain, it was like stumbling into some terrible scene he might have written himself. His entire body went cold. He felt a pounding in his temples as the adrenaline of fright fueled his pulse. He was aware of a full bladder and had to concentrate to contain it.

He fumbled with the sleeping bag zipper and squirmed out of it as though it were full of spiders. He knelt on the hard floor and strained to listen. Still the music played, the quick melody losing energy but still recognizable. Fur Elise from the snow globe, floating down from the very top of the turret. Beautiful, terrible music from the pink room.

It wound down. I heard it wind down. There was not a single note left in those springs and cogs.

He stood and pulled on a pair of jeans. He reached for the flashlight and switched it on. He aimed it at the staircase, terrified at what he might see there. But again, there were no leering faces or crouching ghouls. Only the darkness of the second floor. And above that, the turret from which the haunting melody continued to play.

I can’t go up there. I think I’m physically incapable of climbing those stairs.

Professional Reviews

Next big thing
"Read the “Pink Room” and introduce yourself to Maine's next great horror writer. LaFlamme is one of only a handful of horror writers who are comfortable telling his macabre tales from inside the belly of the beast."

-- David Griffiths, writer, editor

Hideous detail
"Like King at his best, LaFlamme doesn't stop at visual terror. He takes us inside the diseased minds of some of the most psychologically intriguing characters I've ever seen. We all have our demons, but we keep them inside. Not LaFlamme. He flaunts them in hideous detail."

-- Dave Griffiths, editor, Writer Services

If you've enjoyed the work of another Maine horror writer, hold on to your socks, because there's a new guy in town. The Pink Room combines excellent characterization and often terrifying descriptions with an original storyline which makes the read as a whole truly entertaining and enjoyable. Add the twists and turns, and it becomes profound and thought-provoking as well. Worthy of purchase - you won't be disappointed.

I saw the above description on the Authors page. What a grabber! That line alone made me check out the book. Expect an order. I could use a thriller right now.
