This romantic thriller follows Eddie on his David versus Goliath quest to win Jessica from the Agency and, when all hope is lost, to reassess his expectations about love and sex, and whether either is worth fighting for.

Readers may think they’ve heard it all when it comes to boy-meets-girl stories, but M.L. Caggiano’s debut novel, “The Agency” (published by Lulu) proves them wrong. It delivers a major twist on this classic theme that aims to keep readers mesmerized.

New York bachelor Eddie Bartlett can’t pick up a woman to save his life. Frustrated, he researches online dating options and stumbles across a matchmaking site that promises not only to deliver beautiful women, but transform Eddie into a Casanova. The Reynard Agency agrees to strategically plant 52 anonymous women, one a week, near Eddie for him to pick up. Selected according to his preferences, they appear where he works, drinks, and shops, anywhere he might be. All he has to do is approach them first. The unique business model bends the law and test his morals, but works like magic because Eddie knows there’s always one girl out there just for him. He just doesn’t know which one she is and she will never say.

Enter Jessica, a seemingly perfect girl with a dark and troubled past. She leads Eddie into a nightmare of seduction, deception, and violence. This romantic thriller follows Eddie on his David versus Goliath quest to win Jessica from the Agency and, when all hope is lost, to reassess his expectations about love and sex, and whether either is worth fighting for.

Praise for “The Agency”:

“… Caggiano’s debut novel is a mystery thriller which takes the reader on a well-crafted and intense ride through death, drama and desperation. … Caggiano’s writing style is full of wry observations and adult sarcasm as well as spot-on observations of today’s work and playful dating world. … So kick back, relax and enjoy a real thrill ride that should be coming to a theater near you soon.”

—Brian J. Karem, award-winning investigative reporter, producer, and author
