At first, it was only research . . .

Author Michael Schiftmann has received resounding critical acclaim for his novels that few people buy or read. The sad truth is that readers aren't interested in great literature—they only want glitz and violence. So that's what Michael intends to give them—shocking stories of a blood-chillingly efficient serial killer that are filled with gore and horror. And to ensure that his books are impeccably realistic in every aspect, he plans to try his own hand . . . at murder.

Soon his fictional killer is a sensation, and Michael is a rich, sought-after celebrity—and his beautiful, rising-star literary agent, Taylor Robinson, is falling in love with him. But there is one serious problem: Michael Schiftmann has discovered that bloodletting feels good . . . and he can't seem to stop.

Steven Womack is the New York Times Notable, Edgar? and Shamus awards-winning author of ten novels, including Dead Folks' Blues and Dirty Money. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Nashville, Tennessee, where he is also a professor of screenwriting at Watkins Film School.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Realistic This novel is about an author who becomes a serial killer and writes novels about he killings. I find it insulting we are suppose to think for many years he police are looking for a serial killer bu never make the connection to these books but a reader of the books realizes it and saves the day. I also dislike novels that have the two lead characters saying I love you and getting married a few days after their first date. While the thought of the book was great, it was poorly executed and written. The novels that the character wrote sounded better than the actual novel.
