About this ebook

How can a homicide be prevented when it’s still only in some stranger’s head? Kim Barbieri, a tough, street-smart New York City crime reporter unfazed by fragile male egos and mangled bodies, is sent an anonymous note with an ominous message: I intend to commit a murder. She doesn’t know who the killer is. She doesn’t know who his victim will be. She doesn’t know where, when and how he will strike. But there is one thing she does know: If she doesn’t learn to think like a killer, someone’s going to get away with murder. Does she succeed in stopping the homicide? Or does she become complicit in it?

I'd never heard of Sid Meltzer - Brad Meltzer yes, Sid Meltzer no - but stumbled upon this and was intrigued by the blurb. And the cover art - NYC at night with crime tape. Right up my alley. That said - this is a superior read on many levels. The author keeps it dark, dangerous and deep - plumming the depths of the human mind and spirit to reveal what really drives both the cop and the criminal. It's got a noire feel in a contemporary environment. Not giving it 5 stars because this is a first outing and I think that the author may have a 5 star in him moving forward. Will keep an eye out. In the meantime - this is highly recommended.

About the author

A lifelong New Yorker, Sid Meltzer took a couple of worthwhile detours on his way to becoming a crime fiction writer. He first served as a Probation Officer, a job that helped him see things from a criminal’s point of view. He then switched careers and went into advertising, where he learned to craft a compelling story.
