FRESH KILLS by Bill Loehfelm - SIGNED FIRST EDITION TRADE PAPER BOOKSee all titles by Bill Loehfelm.
In Fresh Kills, the murder of John Sanders, Sr. on a New York street corner reunites his estranged and abused children, John, Jr. and Julia. While Julia struggles to keep things together on the home front, Junior, unhinged by his fatherís death, searches for the killer across the bleak, haunted landscape of his Staten Island hometown.
Complicating Juniorís pursuit are two police detectives: one, a former childhood friend; the other, a veteran cop who might have his own reasons to wish John, Sr. dead. Juniorís emotional state crumbles under the pressure coming at him from every side. Bedding his high school sweetheart doesnít exactly simplify the situation. When the opportunity for revenge presents itself, Junior must decide whether he will continue the chain of violence that has nearly destroyed his life, or give in to the possibility of a new beginning.
With emotional intensity, crackling dialogue and a heartfelt sense of place and character, Fresh Kills delivers unexpected and profound insights that speak to the soul of its struggling hero, and heralds a breakthrough voice in fiction.
