The Watchers (36,000 words) is a tale about Gene, an insurance adjuster, who is having a mid-life crisis after 20 years of marriage. Imagine that you've just finished a mind numbing seminar and are sitting in a hotel bar having a drink, when you pick up on the conversation two guys next to you are having.
You hear the words Sex Show and your ears perk up. As you listen, you discover that for one-hundred dollars you can watch people having sex right in front of your eyes. For someone who looks at wrecked cars and damaged houses for a living, a sex show sounds irresistible.
The sex show turns out to be everything Gene could hope for and much more. At the end of the show, he discovers that one of the actresses is his sweet innocent wife of twenty years.
At first appalled, disgusted, and sick at his stomach at what he's seen, he can't seem to keep from looking at the pictures and movies one of the girls sends him. Read as Gene attempts to deal with the fact his wife is not what she seems and what is he going to do?
As with all of Larry Archer's erotic stories, this one is for adults only and features graphic depictions of bareback sexual conduct between grown people, who should know better.
