)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Christmas Eve Can Kill You by William Marantz. The author's most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 paperback in the mystery and detective fiction category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/christmasevecankillyou was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
Country-singer-turned-talkjock Val Virgo thinks of himself as an entertainer not a political pundit. When he receives an on-air death threat from a self-described aboriginal militant, he laughs it off as a sick joke. Next morning he wakes up in a hospital bed and is no longer amused. Why would any self-respecting “terrorist” plant a bomb in the apartment of glorified disk jockey?
In search of the answer to this vexing question “Izzy Miller” takes a trip down memory lane, to the mean streets of his misspent youth, one step ahead of the mad bomber. The race against time comes to an explosive conclusion when the hero discovers a long-lost enemy virtually on his doorstep -- one hour too late.
“This story grabs you immediately and doesn’t let go. There is a powerful sense of place which, by the end of the novel will make any reader feel at home in Marantz’s world. Bill Marantz deserves a wide audience and Christmas Eve Can Kill You should get him one.”
- Eric Wright, author of Charlie Salter mystery series.
“Early audience reaction: I don’t ordinarily laugh out loud when I’m reading, but I laughed out loud at Virgo’s relationship with Abby Brown. I read a lot of P.I. Novels and this is as good as or better than anything on the shelves. Pace, humor, character, plot -- great!”
- Albany Meath, Rowland Heights, CA.
