Neither of these short novels is as good as Mr. Theroux's best fiction, but, in true Jekyll and Hyde tradition, what is good in ''Dr. DeMarr'' can serve as antidote for what is bad in ''Doctor Slaughter.'' Return to ''The Mosquito Coast'' or ''Picture Palace'' to discover what is better still.

Book description
The two remarkable novellas that comprise Paul Theroux's latest best seller explore the mystery and menace of double lives. From the seamy netherworlds of London to the suburbs of Boston, Theroux weaves a chilling drama around sex, power, and the sinister allure of the forbidden.

Doctor Slaughter and Doctor DeMarr.
