I was fortunate to receive a traditional publishing contract for my novel, Weepers, with a lovely, albeit modest, advance from a medium size publisher. I am, of course, thrilled.
Weepers is a mystery/thriller set in New York City, during 1957. The murder of an undercover cop in a New York City Housing Project in 1957 has unexpected ties to the unsolved disappearance of a young father walking home in those same Projects with his son, Angelo, on Christmas Eve 1951. The only witness to the cop killing is Angelo, now 13, as he was on his way to commit arson at 2:00am. The killers saw him and know he saw them. These events forge a union between a priest, a Mafia boss, a police detective, and Angelo, a gang member.
Weepers is a story about murder, courage, connections and revenge in a neighborhood where good and evil commune. Here in the Two Bridges neighborhood, if you drop a rock into the East River, the ripples will go all the way to Italy. In the end, Weepers shows us that the courage of the underdog—despite fear and moral ambiguity—will conquer intimidation.
Weepers will be available on June 1 2015 at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, local independent bookstores, from the publisher, www.henschelhausbooks.com and at the Write by the Lake Book Fair, at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, on Thursday, June 18, 2015.
