Mystery Scene on A Killer's Essence



In riveting narrative, Zeltserman illustrates what happens to a wounded man whose psychic powers outstrip his ability to cope. Think you'd like the power to see inside the dark hearts of others? Think again. How would it feel if, on the way to the office, we saw demons on the sidewalk, harpies on the subway? This is strong stuff, and the author is expert at sharing Zach's horror, as well Green's empathic reaction to it. In the end discovering the killer's identity isn't half as compelling as the inner torment of two men who are "gifted" with psychic abilities.

Hi Dave, new to your writing, but like what I have been able to see from blogs and your website. I live in the Boston area as well and looking forward to getting cracking on reading more of your stories/novels.

Sean, thanks for stopping by. If you're from around here and have the slightest interest in Whitey Bulger + crime fiction, you need to read Pariah. And if you're from Waltham, you need to read Killer.
