The Sizzling Nights of the Diabolical Dr. Carelli
by Marcello Garofalo
An Underwear Model, her Aunt, a Professor, a dead boyfriend who isn't dead, his Aunt, three guys who are convinced they're monsters, 114 rats, a Hoatzin, and two of the strangest housekeepers you've ever met. Mix in Murder, Revenge, Kidnapping, some Kinky Sex, Psychological Torture, and little balls of cheese stuffed with cow shit, and you have "The Sizzling Nights of the Diabolical Dr. Carelli". A perfect balance of horror, drama, and action-adventure, with an extremely irreverent sense of humor.
What secrets lie behind the mask of the Mysterious Doctor? Is his Aunt Eleanor, an internationally renowned Biologist, just an aging purple-haired spinster protecting her Nephew, or is she terrified someone will discover she has perfected a process so dangerous it could destroy life as we know it?
From the jungles of the Amazon to the streets of New York the Doctor will carry out a series of attacks to expose and humiliate criminals the police can't or won't go after. Each victory will help him transform from a mindless, bloodthirsty cliché, into the most unique "Monster" you will ever encounter. Everything is perfect until he meets his real enemy and learns the answer to his questions.
A rip-roaring, unexpectedly humorous thriller, with whip-smart dialogue, a relentless pace, and unforgettable characters who believe the term "forbidden" doesn't apply to them.
The protagonist of our story, set in New York City, is Phillip Carelli. His life cut short at 19 when he is shot down in the street. The police cannot find a motive for his murder or uncover a single lead to the hooded figure who shot him. When Phillip's Aunt Eleanor, an internationally renowned biologist, and researcher, is notified of his death, she moves quickly to have his body shipped to her lab deep in the Amazon Rainforest. Driven by her love for her nephew and a need to understand the very nature of "Life," she renews a line of experimentation, she had sworn an oath as a young scientist to abandon. Keenly aware of both the dangers and the consequences, she works tirelessly to perfect the procedure. Convinced that the process will work, she sets aside her fears and uses it to resurrect her nephew. She succeeds and fails because he is no longer the boy she raised. She has changed him into a living skeleton.
As Phillip overcomes the shock of what has happened to him and works to gain control over his new form, he begins to develop a plan to make good use of his powers.
Over his Aunt's objections, he returns to New York and tracks down his first love, Joan-Mary Frazier. He recruits her and her current lover, an older professor, named Tony Seppilli, to help him execute his plan. Things become complicated when Alida Sibley, a former research partner of Eleanor Carelli, learns of Phillip's existence and sets a plan in motion to destroy him and exact revenge on Eleanor.
As the founder of an "alternative" clinic recognized as a leader in treating rare psychological disorders, Alida Sibley has been secretly experimenting on some of her more dangerous patients. Instead of curing them, she has used her considerable skill to push them so deep into their classic paranoia that little remains of their humanity.
