A grisly murder in a pastoral Wisconsin town, Winsome Bay, proves to be only the opening act in a twisting, darkening series of gruesome deaths. Acclaimed already for his young adult fiction, actor/director/playwright James DeVita now debuts an addictive, adult thriller that takes us from Chicago’s underbelly to the Wisconsin woods.
            In this fast-paced novel we meet a gorgeous waitress with a haunted past, an author juggling a failing career and motherhood, and a hard-bitten detective with unexpected inspiration from William Shakespeare’s bloodiest plays—and nobody escapes the nightmare created by a psychotic killer of women.

“A page-turner from beginning to end. . . . Certain to be an enduringly popular addition to community library Mystery/Suspense collections.”—Midwest Book Review

“In addition to a unique detective, a wholly original story, and some literary flair, DeVita has filled these pages with timely and biting social commentary, which does much to add to the real feel of this creative whodunit.”—Chicago Book Review

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
YA author DeVita (The Silenced) makes his adult debut with an engaging mystery that’s a feast of literary allusions. The murder of beautiful, troubled Deborah Ellison in Winsome, Wis., attracts the attention of writer Jillian McClay, who sells Chicago editor Kevin Lachlan on the idea of a series of magazine stories about the crime. Two elements draw Chicago police detective James Mangan into the case: Ellison was living in Chicago at the time of her death, and Lachlan is mailed a severed hand, which relates to Ellison’s murder. Winsome police chief Wesley Faber is out of his depth, and Mangan spends a lot of time in Winsome as more brutal murders occur, all tied to Ellison and the magazine’s coverage. Mangan’s “verbal quirks,” snatches of prose or poetry that pop into his head and help him solve cases, make him an unusually distinctive sleuth. An appendix lists the sources for the quotations and paraphrases from Mangan’s favorites, particularly Shakespeare and Melville. (June)
