Sinopsis:

Paris, 1924. A city teeming with would-be poets, writers, and painters. Hector Lassiter, fledgling author and best friend of Ernest Hemingway, is crossing the Pont Neuf when he hears a body fall into the icy Seine — the first in a string of brutal murders of literary magazine editors that throw a shroud over the City of Light.

Frantic to stop the killings, Gertrude Stein gathers the most prominent crime and mystery writers in the city, including Hector and the dark, mysterious crime novelist Brinke Devlin. Soon, Hector and Brinke are tangled not only under the sheets, but in a web of murders, each more grisly than the next.

As he is drawn deeper into the hunt, Hector finds himself torn between three women with hidden agendas and dark imaginations. When Hector learns that the murders may be the work of a strange cult of writers who are targeting the literary set, Hemingway, Hector, and Brinke must scramble to find the killer before they become the next victims.

A Moveable Feast meets The Dante Club in this ­­­­exquisite mystery that takes readers from the cafés of Montparnasse, through the historic graveyards of Paris, to the smoky backrooms of bookstores and salons. As dark as the shadowy banks of the Seine and as addictive as absinthe, this unforgettable book will grab you and never let go. 

From the Author:

Welcome to the world of Hector Lassiter. Betimes Books is presenting the Lassiter series--a mix of reissued and never-before-seen entries--in chronological order for the first time. "One True Sentence" finds Hector Lassiter, novelist and eventual screenwriter, at his uneasy start as an aspiring author. The Texas-born Lassiter is introduced living in post-war Paris, a member of the so-called "Lost Generation," struggling along with fellow unknown Ernest Hemingway to find his writer's voice.
Ernest Hemingway is my favorite author. His posthumous memoir "A Moveable Feast" is my favorite book. In "One True Sentence," a phrase employed by Hemingway to exemplify his ultimate goal as an author, I wanted to recreate Paris in all of its heady, sexually-charged 1920s glory, essentially laying bare the dark underpinnings of Hemingway's apprenticeship on the run up to his signature novel, "The Sun Also Rises." (Insider's trivia note: "One True Sentence" is also the name given to a game Hector and Hemingway are depicted in several novels playing against one another, trying to finish one another's "true sentences" in clever fashion. I've actually played the game with readers via Twitter, from time to time, at #OTS.)--Craig McDonald
