CLUB MEDicine by Jack Kinsley
Crystal Heights is an elite rehab center for the wealthy, but it provides the accommodations and services of a luxury spa. The clients are an eclectic bunch: a spoiled, drug addled young man, a wealthy lonely widow, a newly rich woman struggling with her sexuality, a hardcore killer (and drug addict) in need of redemption. The staff is equally eclectic: a comical chef, a straight-laced facility manager, an absent-minded assistant and Travis, the owner of the facility and the main character of the story.
Travis’s complicated life, both past and present are the driving force of the story. He’s recently separated from his wife, who is threatening to take his beloved daughter to her home country of Romania, where he may never see her again. On the surface, Travis appears to be a hardworking man, who only wants his business to succeed and his marriage and family to remain intact, but his personal demons are catching up with him and he can feel it all slipping away.
When Travis feels like he’s backed into a corner with no other alternatives, he decides to take the ultimate action… murder-for hire. It’s a complicated thriller with a surprising ending.
