9780099538691: The Violet Hour

Twenty years ago a group of students celebrated their daring and freedom at an exclusive college party, where something terrible happened. For most the memories are buried until a respected priest is brutally killed. For journalist Nick Stella this could be a chance to hit the big time again.

Richard Montanari combines some unusual ingredients (the ethnic sociology of Cleveland, Ohio; the poetry of T.S. Eliot; the eccentricities of e-mail and chat rooms) with some of the more familiar elements of genre fiction (the hungry journalist who lucks into a good story; a series of current crimes linked to an old atrocity) to excellent effect in The Violet Hour. Writer Nicky Stella--beseiged by debts and responsibilities of his own--tries to save his career by finding out why poetry students who went to a party at Case Western Reserve University 20 years ago are suddenly dying in very nasty ways. With its ecclectic mixture of new technologies and classic mystery plotting, The Violet Hour is a sleek and dark story of delayed revenge. Montanari's equally chilling, well-received first thriller, Deviant Way, is available in paperback. --Dick Adler
