At first, it was just research . . . After several critically acclaimed novels, Michael Schiftmann has yet to make the kind of living he thinks due him; any kind of living at all, in fact. His novels have been described as literate and multi-layered, but as Michael knows all too well, literate doesn't sell. One drunken, depressed night, it comes to him. Readers want glitz and violence he'll give it to them. He'll create a series of novels featuring the boldest, coldest serial killer ever imagined. He'll get inside the murderer's head in ways no writer has ever done. Every emotion, every sensation, every delicious moment will be captured on the page. But to do this, he'll have to discover for himself what it feels like to actually kill someone. And what Michael Schiftmann discovers is that murder feels good.

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.
