This stylish, darkly funny psychological debut thriller set in New York City is about a struggling writer forced to play detective in a real-life murder mystery plot, after a convicted serial killer - who claims to be innocent - hires him to write his memoir. All Harry Bloch knows about catching a serial killer is what he has learned from his own books. An unknown writer, Harry churns out pulp novels under a variety of pseudonyms. But Harry's life takes a sudden dramatic turn and begins to resemble the plot of one of his crime novels when a convicted serial killer known as the Photo Killer asks Harry to write his memoir.

Soon, several women are murdered in the Photo Killer's signature style, just hours after Harry interviews them, and he becomes a suspect. Or is he the killer's next target? The novel follows his quest to find the real killer, a search that turns up much more than he could have imagined.

    " LOVED this book! After I finished it, I felt not unlike the way I did after I saw "Pulp Fiction" for the first time. It was exhilarating, freaky, and enormously entertaining. Sensational read! "

    " I was afraid this rather meta-literary meta-pulp mystery would be too fey, too clever for its own good, but author is aware of this trap and thus far has avoided it successfully. I'm digging this!....Now done with it: could be called pulp literariness, and it's done well. Reminds me of the movie _Adaptation_ in that at a certain point plot HAS to come into the forefront and yet the piece doesn't want to back down from its self-awareness. It's a fine line to walk but Gordon manages it well. It's worth reading others' reviews to get a sense of what the plot is all about; I'm too lazy to retell! A fun read and a smart one, too. (I'd actually give this 3.5 stars.) "
