Newark, DE Author Publishes Mystery Thriller Novel

By: PR Leap
( A Slice of Death, a new book by Patricia D. Perry, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Detective Jack Pirrone still loves his estranged wife, Cynthia, and now that she's returned to Cape Cod as Medical Examiner, perhaps they could rekindle some of that old passion between them. However, Jack's personal life must take a back seat to the murders of several young, beautiful women in the area.

A Slice of Death follows Jack as he and his team try to identify and stop a serial killer who assaults, mutilates, and dresses up his victims, including applying makeup and posing them to be discovered in the most gruesome way possible, while leaving no forensic evidence. An approaching hurricane, influx of holiday tourists, and pressure from the community and press add to Jack's struggle, a struggle that intensifies when the killer gets too close to Jack's loved ones. Will he solve the mystery in time?
