MERRICK, N.Y. (PRWEB) June 09, 2016
Anthony A. Pellegrino marks his debut in the world of crime thrillers with the release of “The Detective” (published by Xlibris). Suffused in page-turning suspense, this new novel examines the darkest corners of the human psyche through the experiences of people entangled in a web of crime.
The story follows Michael Keller, the eponymous detective of the title, whose life is turned upside down following a single bad decision. The repercussions of his actions soon ripple into unimaginable consequences and spread like a lethal infection causing him to indulge in destructive activities. Michael treasures his family and would do anything in his power to protect them, but he could not prevent a particular homicide from taking place. Can the detective fix the already volatile situation or is he doomed to suffer the tragic outcomes of his past?
In this brilliantly orchestrated novel, first time author Pellegrino takes readers on a cat and mouse chase from beginning until the stunning conclusion. “The Detective” is ultimately a fast-paced detective story and a startling examination of the duality of human nature.
