9780571301904: The Girl With A Clock For A Heart

George Foss is a forty-year-old employee of a Boston literary magazine. He has passed the age when he thinks he might really fall in love, or take the world by storm, or have anything truly surprising happen to him. He has spent most evenings at a local pub with an on-again-off-again friend and lover, talking about the Red Sox and the minutiae of everyday life and obsessing about a love he lost in college. Until she reappears one day, twenty years later.

George has both dreamed of and dreaded seeing Liana Dector again. Liana was not simply an ex-girlfriend who had broken his heart. She was, as far as he knew, a woman who had skipped town under suspicion of murder, a woman whose transgressions were more in line with Greek tragedy than youthful indiscretion. Now Liana is in trouble. It has something to do with threatening men and missing money. And she needs his help. George could never resist her before-and that hasn't changed. Soon his quiet life is gone and he is pulled into a whirlpool of lies and murder that he will be very lucky to survive.

Reminiscent of the 1980's film,Body Heat, that made stars of Kathleen Turner and William Hurt, this romantic noir is full of malicious foreboding and subtle surprises that readers will never see coming. And the ever-tightening coil of suspense that culminates in the final scenes is at once so satisfying-and alarming-that it would have made Hitchcock blush.

From the Back Cover:

An atmospheric tale of romantic noir with shades of Hitchcock about a man who is swept into a vortex of irresistible passion and murder when an old love mysteriously reappears

George Foss, a forty-year-old employee of a Boston literary magazine, has passed the age when he thinks he might fall madly in love or take the world by storm, or have anything truly remarkable happen to him. He spends most of his evenings at his local tavern talking about the Red Sox and the minutiae of everyday life, and obsessing over a lost love from his college days who vanished twenty years earlier. Until she reappears.

George has both dreamed of and dreaded seeing Liana Decter again. She isn't just an ex-girlfriend or the first love George could never forget. She's also an enigma and quite possibly someone who was involved in a murder years ago, a woman whose transgressions are more in line with Greek tragedy than youthful indiscretion. But suddenly, she's back—and she needs his help. She says that some men are after her and that they believe she's stolen money from them. And now they will do whatever it takes to get it back.

George knows Liana is trouble. But he can't say no—he never could—and soon his quiet life is gone as he is pulled into a terrifying whirlpool of lies, betrayal, and murder from which there is no sure escape.

Bold and masterful, full of malevolent foreboding and subtle surprises, The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is an addictive, nonstop reading experience—an ever-tightening coil of suspense that will hold you in its grip right up to its electrifying end.
