"Schizophrenic" Author Reveals Drug That Can Beat Polygraph

"The Most Graphic Torture Scenes You'll Ever Read."  Burt Constable--Daily Herald

Buffalo Grove, IL ---Some say this book is the work of a paranoid schizophrenic.  Others say it's just a disturbing novel with information on how to get away with murder.

A drug commonly used by anesthesiologists before putting a patient to sleep, was also used by Dr. Benjamin Weinstein to beat the polygraph test when questioned about his possible involvement in three unsolved murders near Lake Michigan in Portage, Indiana.  All of this is revealed in Daniel Kamen's new suspense fiction thriller, Stagecoach Road:  The Bullies Must Die (CCB Publishing). 

Some are wondering if Kamen's new novel is a thinly disguised autobiography.  Kamen claims it is fiction "except for the time I was almost murdered on Stagecoach Road by two thugs who befriended me after chess club."  Those who grew up with Dr. Kamen, 60, a well known animal chiropractor and best-selling author, say they remember hearing about a  Jewish Wirt High School student who was brutally attacked during the spring of 1973 on a deserted country road near Miller Beach, Indiana.  They think it was Kamen.

While Kamen swears the book is not about him, it's hard to imagine there isn't some truth to it, considering the personal and professional similarities between Kamen and the main character.  The gruesome acts of revenge, however, must be a figment of Kamen's wild imagination.  At least we hope they are. 

Stagecoach Road: The Bullies Must Die begins in the spring of 1973, during the post Woodstock days when you could still hear new songs by The Who, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Blood, Sweat, & Tears.  It is about a studious seventeen year old high school graduate, Benjamin Weinstein, who drove his new graduation present, a blue Mustang, to Stagecoach Road late at night to "let off some steam" after being dumped by his pretty, virtuous girlfriend at the graduation party, who later that evening lost her virginity to the bad-boy band leader.  While idling in the dark by himself on that heavily wooded road, he saw a set of headlights approach then suddenly stop in front of his car.  The four anti-Semitic bullies who tormented Benny all through school, got out of their badly rusted Camero, pulled Benny out of his car and beat him near death.  Benny's physical injuries eventually healed and he went on to become a successful chiropractor and a family man.  But his emotional scars from being bullied and beaten festered for years, until one day in 1992 he discovered one of his attackers owned a thriving auto supply store and was leading the good life.  This incited Benny into a rage.  At that moment he decided to hunt down his other three assailants with the plan of bringing each one back to Stagecoach Road so he could torture and kill them--his way.

While many parts of the Kamen's novel are fiction, Stagecoach Road is not.  It's still that same dark, creepy winding road off Route 12 in Portage, Indiana, not far from Lake Michigan.  It's the perfect atmosphere for a slasher movie.  Ask the locals--they'll tell you. Go there at night with your brights and see if you can drive the distance without seeing phantoms lurch from behind the trees who look like they just stepped out of the 1800's.  You'll swerve to avoid them.
The book is definitely adult reading with graphic violence and sexual situations.  A wild, surprise ending.
