Cape Coral, FL, June 20, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Henry Albert delivers a smart, sexy and addictive read in A Taste of Death (Outskirts Press), a shocking psycho-thriller that combines a classic page-turner plot with overtones of Shakespeare’s MacBeth. In it, Sanders examines the hideous lengths one man will go to keep the affection of his wife—even if it means the destruction of all else he holds dear.
Doug Sanders can’t believe his luck when he earns the attention of Laverne, a knockout twenty-three years his junior. But when money troubles at Doug’s construction company endanger his love’s rampant shopping habit, she threatens to call off their impending marriage. Then Laverne spies a solution—involving the offing of Doug’s beloved (and wealthy) aunt.
At first repulsed by the suggestion, Doug eventually finds himself won over to Laverne’s bloody plot; after all, it’s the only way to keep the girl. But even as the couple find themselves flush with inheritance money, the deed sets in motion a series of events that threaten to undermine their happiness. As local police investigators become suspicious of what is quickly ruled a homicide, Doug and Laverne must do whatever it takes to keep their secret hidden—even if it means more gruesome crimes will be committed. And there’s no sign Laverne’s ravenous appetite for money is anywhere near being satisfied. Can Doug rein in his wife’s ruinous consumption habits and get the police off their backs before his world unravels?
Set primarily in an upscale New England village, A Taste of Death is a wild psychological thrill-ride that details what happens when obsession, greed and lust intersect. In this his first thriller, Henry Albert shows off his engaging prose style, punctuated by crackling dialogue and a keen ability to weave a tale that’s at once shocking and highly addictive.
