Law Enforcement in Japan and U.S. Hunt Wrong Murder Suspect in Killer Body Sequel

Frank Catanzano is a Pittsburgh journalist who is considered to be a writer of extremely dark crime books. His first book, Drummer for the Mob, was chosen as best new book of 2010 by Pittsburgh Quarterly and is in predevelopment as a major motion picture. His second novel, Killer Body, traces how sexual abuse and high school bullying can create a serial killer. His newest novel, Killer Body 2: Retribution continues the saga of the serial killer who is sought by law enforcement in Okinawa, Japan, and the United States. But as the body count increases, are they hunting the right person responsible for the horrific crimes? Anyone who loves mysteries and crime will want to read this violent tale of a psychopathic murderer who assumes the mantle of a feudal samurai.

Author Frank Catanzano has launched his third novel, a sequel to Killer Body entitled Killer Body2: Retribution. It is a darkly woven tale of serial murder and insanity that is set in Okinawa, Japan and the United States. The killer uses an extraordinary expertise in karate and the code of the warrior Bushido to savagely murder and torture victims, using bare hands or ancient methods of torture.

In Killer Body 2 a serial killer is preying upon the citizens of Okinawa, Japan. Profiled as a schizophrenic with delusions of being a rogue samurai, the killer targets Japanese law enforcement as well as dangerous members of yakuza, organized crime. The unidentified suspect is profiled as a powerful, highly intelligent man trained in the martial arts. Or is it a man? Sandy Garland, a gorgeous former flight attendant for Odyssey Airlines, became a suspect back in Miami when a series of horrific murders occurred there. Sandy, Isshinryu karate’s highest ranking woman worldwide and Miami chief detective John Gonzalez fell in love during the Miami investigation and together they escaped to assume new identities in Okinawa. Gonzalez violated his oath as a detective to be with the woman he loved, as Interpol and the FBI focus on him as the serial killer. After a bloody confrontation in a Pittsburgh motel, the killer embarks upon a murder spree of epic proportions. Described as ‘the perfect killing machine,’ the killer goes after the President of the United States and his family in Washington, DC. Can the combined forces of the Secret Service and FBI stop the psychopath in time?

Killer Body 2: Retribution takes up where Killer Body left off. Readers interested in true crime or having a ‘fly on the wall’ view of the making of a psychopath will love this book. Relentless action and plot twists will keep the reader turning the page, while making sure the door is locked and a light is on.
