    I don't recall that being in the novel.

    skimom2 Just moseyin' through...

    I can't remember if it was in the novel (it was is Thomas Harris' Red Dragon, though). Pretty much just a way to torture a male child--the thought makes me sick to my stomach--and maybe her husband became attached. Pain and pleasure got confused.

    Now I want to throw up. Child abuse is one of the things I have a very hard time stomaching in a book/movie.

    I don't think it was in the novel. It showed up in The Dead Zone, though.

    You are right - it is definitely in The Dead Zone.

    I am 2/3 of the way through a reread of 11/22/63 but I have not run across it yet.
