Nashville, TN (PRWEB) March 23, 2007
A debut suspense novel befitting April, the cruelest month, Ladykiller by Lawrence Light and Meredith Anthony is a harrowing tale of evil, wide awake in the city that never sleeps.
In an advance review, FreshFiction reports, "Husband and wife Lawrence Light and Meredith Anthony make an excellent writing team. This compelling crime novel is a first-rate reading experience."
Set on the streets of New York in 1991, Ladykiller (Oceanview Publishing, $23.95, ISBN: 1-933515-05-8) plunges readers deep into the distorted world of a menacing, maniacal, and oh-so-meticulous killer.
From the bright lights of Times Square to the dark alleys and side streets of New York, the Ladykiller is at work - and at prey. Four women - a cheerleader, a stockbroker, asuburban housewife, and a prostitute - savagely murdered on the mean streets of New York. The Ladykiller leaves no trail, no clues.
In a city paralyzed with fear, the pressure is on for NYPD detective Dave Dillon: if he doesn't solve the crime, he can kiss his job goodbye. When Dave joins forces with Megan Morrison, a beautiful young social worker, the search for a cold-hearted killer leads to a hot romance. As if their burgeoning attraction isn't distracting enough, Dave and Megan must contend with a host of other forces -a determined detective with her own not-so-hidden agenda, Megan's jealous mentor, and Dave's shadowy past - all threatening to intrude.
The clock is ticking for Dave and Megan. Will they close in on the shocking truth behind the crimes, or will it close in on them? In the world of the Ladykiller, passion can turn deadly in a New York minute.
Shocking, spellbinding and daring, Ladykiller is a seductive tale that will grab you and not let go. Expect the unexpected from this taut and terrifying page-turner.
According to international bestselling author MJ Rose, "Light & Anthony have created a New York thriller as dark and dangerous and surprising as the city itself. Ladykiller is a tension filled story that moves as fast as lighting and is just as electrifying."
An award-winning journalist, Lawrence Light is currently the Wall Street Editor for Forbes magazine. Meredith Anthony has written for film, television, print and the Web. Lawrence Light and Meredith Anthony are married and live on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
Ladykiller will be available in bookstores nationwide on April 15, 2007. Oceanview Publishing is an independent publisher headquartered in Massachusetts.
