I can't wait for the next Detective Karin Schaeffer thriller." -Richard Montanari, Sunday Times bestselling author

The first novel (ebook) in the Karin Schaeffer series, You Are Next , was just put on sale for 99 cents:
Former detective Karin Schaeffer lost her husband and child to a serial killer, and now fights to overcome despair and save her remaining loved ones as the clock ticks on all their lives.

Just when their new life together has settled in, Mac vanishes, unearthing secrets and dangers that force Karin into a face-off with a deadly Mexican queenpin whose son has an agenda of his own.

Re: Welcome to the B&N Mystery Forum - Introduce Yourself!

Hi! My name is Jack Sussek and I'm an author of a new mystery-thriller titled, 'Manhattan Affair'. It's a tale of New York City nostalgia mixed with murder and sex, a world of secrets and lies which entwine the lives of three former New England college classmates: Jared “Jed” Chase, Steve Cahill, and Morris Bergman.

 

Kirkus Reviews says, "A smart, thrilling medley of twisted relationships, unrequited love and closely guarded secrets. A wickedly suspenseful thriller." 

 

I currently live in New York City and love exploring the city sharing pictures from the city on my Facebook page. You can find me on various social media and book club sites under my name.

 

Looking forward to sharing this book with you all - Hope we did this right!

Wasn't that old TV show The Naked City set in Manhattan? I still remember the line, "There are a million stories in The Naked City..." So true! You can't go wrong with any part of NYC.

Re: Manhattan Affair

Yes, The Naked City--and you're righ,t that is a great line. There's something magical about Manhattan. I remember a critic writing a review of one of Woody Allen's movies said, "it makes you feel nostalgic for New York, even if you've never lived there."

There's a thread on Library Thing about Mysteries Set in New York. Fun idea! Here's the link:

Re: Manhattan Affair

Actually, the line was "There are 8 million stories in the naked city." 

 

I guess I always knew Manhattan would be the setting; the way the story started  was from an idea I had while I was sitting at the bar in the old LION"S HEAD in Greenwich Village almost 20 years ago. I was watching a very pretty young woman while I waited for a friend to show up, he was late, and as I watched this woman, who obviously was waiting for someone as well, I suddenly saw a young man come and walk over to her and sit down. They ordered martini's and that was it. I began to imagine what they were talking about, the body language was somewhat sensual so I started imaging what their relationship was; they certainly were not married and perhaps not even 'seeing' each other, but I was intrigued with the whole scene. Then they left but I kept thinking about them. As for the rest of it; the story takes place in the 1990's which to me was a very different kind of New York than the New York after 2001 and so the story is partly about that too.
