Reluctant Host by Jonathan Ross
Bret Parker lives in Manhattan while undergoing experimental treatment to cure his cancer. A threatening Spanish word repeatedly pops into his head: azoramiento. It translates to ‘trepidation,’ which is exactly how Bret feels. As days pass, more words emerge, just as terrifying, all in Spanish. Is his mind being taken over, one word at a time? Veronica Navarro, assistant curator at the prestigious Museum of Hispanic History, meets Bret by chance. He has a certain charm and is muy guapo. Finding him appealing, she tries to solve the mystery of why angry Spanish words bubble into this Anglo’s brain. But will they discover their source before they get him killed or he succumbs to his disease?
