This self-contained short story is taken from the opening of Dead Line, a novel described as “a tightly woven, mind-spinning tapestry” (Split Seed Review), “a fluid, snaky thriller of great momentum” (Bookpleasures) and “Hunter Thompson mixed with Raymond Chandler” (Amazon review).
What’s Dead Line about?
The Lit-Crit Take: A genre-bending, character-driven, word-burning thriller about memory, identity and making peace with the past.
The Pure Plot Pitch: Sure, we all know about arrogant, self-centered media executives. But how about one who served time as a teen for murdering her sister? And who suddenly believes she’s possessed by the spirit of Indira Gandhi? And now, at the height of her power, a secret from her past is threatening to destroy her empire, while someone from that past is trying to take her life. Stop the damn presses!
