In the dark fantasy Stray, Healer Feisal is framed for a brutal murder after he rescues Orossy, a male cross-dresser in the run from an obsessive patron. Stripped of his psychic healing talents as punishment, Feisal must find a way to clear his name and help Orossy with his other problems: headaches, memory loss, and the frightening realization that Orossy's sexy female alter ego may be more real than they think.
This isn't a hook.
You know that by now of course.
How do you get stripped of your psychic healing talents...and why would someone do that as a punishment. Send the healer to read the slush pile would be truly cruel.
