                       The Editor

The Editor decides who will live and who will die and who will live happily ever after…

Sam Adams had the perfect life: a lovely wife, a devoted son, a job he loved, a comfortable home in a leafy suburb.

But then a simple flat tire on Easter Sunday gave birth to a nightmare beyond all imagination.

And now Sam must try to put his life back together.

No longer able to rest easy in his suburban home, Sam rents a cottage on a secluded country estate. His new landlord is very mysterious, exquisitely beautiful, and blind. But far from being a helpless victim, Ms. Evelyn Richmond plays a strange game with Sam’s already tangled mind, and with his tortured soul.

What does the enigmatic Evelyn really want? Is she merely a bored and lonely woman? Or is she a dangerous sexual temptress?

Sam, lost and broken, finds himself obsessed with and possessed by this sensuous and unsettling woman. He becomes snared in her carefully spun web of dark secrets and forbidden eroticism.

Sam has no idea how far Evelyn Richmond will go, beyond what limits she will push him, or where their bizarre courtship will end.

Nor will you…

If you think you are beyond surprise, beyond shock… think again.

The Editor is a fascinating psychological twister, a creepy and disturbing tale dissecting the depravity of the human soul.

Thomas William Simpson explores a vast range of characters, plots, and emotions in his novels. The Editor, The Affair, The Caretaker, and The Immortal are all adventures into the dark side of human behavior. 

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 04, 2000 – Reeling from the recent murder of his wife and son, successful book editor Sam Adams moves into a rented cottage on the property of beautiful, blind cellist Evelyn Richmond because his own house holds too many painful memories. Sam is intrigued by his new landlady, who alternates flirtatious behavior with rudeness and hostility. He senses that she is playing some kind of sexual game with him and finds himself irresistibly drawn to her. They soon begin a passionate affair, and Sam's interest in Evelyn turns into an unhealthy obsession. The story is told through Sam's journal entries, in which he relives the horrible day his family was killed and explores his feelings for Evelyn. Unfortunately, the development of Sam and Evelyn's strange relationship, interspersed with Sam's memories of the past and with mundane details of his daily life, is insufficient to sustain the novel's plot or develop its suspense. But Simpson (The Hancock Boys) does manage to conjure up a terrifically startling ending that somewhat redeems his lackluster story line.
