Ladies' Night is a non-stop rollercoaster ride of sheer nerve rattling terror, previously deemed too violent for mass-market publication. In this modern tale of the ages-old battle of the sexes carried to the extreme, Jack Ketchum again provides listeners with an excursion into horror as relentless as a John Woo film.

Tom Braun and his wife, Susan, aren't exactly a picturesque couple. Thus it comes as no surprise that Tom continually spends late evenings in bars and cheats on his wife. Unfortunately, their son, Andy, is caught in the middle of his parent's childish banter and family chaos. One life-altering evening turns this family's, along with most of New York's, perceptions on the nuclear family and male/female relationships upside down.

When a tanker trunk with Ladies Inc. emblazoned on the side crashes in a quiet area in New York, an area it doesn't have authorization to be in, it liberally spills its contents all over the road and into the surrounding atmosphere. The local authorities deem the contents of the spill to be safe, based merely on the assumption that products coming from a women's label are more than likely benign. Moreover, the smell emanating from the spill is one of sweet cherry, similar to lollipops, which must of course be harmless if not favorable. This aforementioned assumption proves fatally incorrect. The chemical load the truck was hauling procures a discomfiting, bestial effect in women, forcing them to savagely attack males in their vicinity - be they former friend or foe.

Tom, while at a local bar, absorbs the evening's strange turn of events with traumatizing clarity as he witnesses first hand the metamorphosis of surrounding women into gruesomely instinctual brutes and mantis-like predators. He must get home to his son Andy, who is currently alone with his wife, Susan - before it is too late. (A multicast production.)

    " Okay Ketchum novel that's sort of the literary equivalent of I Spit on Your Grave. For hardcore readers only. "

    " This is Jack's second book, between Off Season and Hide and Seek. I didn't care much for it, preferring his work from 1989-on, his peak, in my opinion. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paul | 6/20/2012

    " A nasty and over the top little horror novel in which an bio-war mishap in Manhattan sends women into a man-killing rage. "

    " First book I've read by the author and it took a while to get going but once it did, it was a rollacoaster that never stopped. "

    " You know how a lot of blurbs say something like, "non-stop action!" and don't deliver? Well, this one does. The action starts and never lets up. Plenty of violence and gore. Ketchum knows how to write short novels that pack a hell of a punch. "

    " Only probablem I had with this book was that it was too short. "
