"Slowly I turned...page after page." Niagara Fall, with its edgy mix of sly humor and sudden, matter-of-fact violence, is a different kind of crime novel for Stephen F. Wilcox, author of the Elias Hackshaw comic mystery novels. Amateur hit men, not-so-wise guys, and gals with guns and comfortable shoes cross paths with a love-lorn ex-monk toting an empty camera and a falls fetish, in America's honeymoon capital. The action begins with a suburban housewife deciding to hire a novice hit man to knock off her insurance man husband, setting off a chain-reaction of mistaken identities, dishonor among thieves, misbegotten romance, and, ultimately, murder. And more murder. From the notorious Love Canal neighborhood to the precipice of the famous falls itself, Niagara Fall will keep you guessing, keep you gasping, keep you laughing, and keep you reading to the very last page. "Wilcox...can write a wonderfully crusty, wry turn of phrase."Kirkus Reviews

About the Author:

Stephen F. Wilcox, a former newspaper reporter, lives with his wife and son in a small town along the Erie Canal near Rochester, NY. To learn more, visit his online newspaper, The Wilcox Gazette, at www.stephenfwilcox.com.

From Publishers Weekly:

Everybody's after something: calculating Marla Graycastle wants her husband dead; bad boy Bona's looking for an in with the mob; ex-monk Decker has his eye on waitress Suzzy (not to mention an obsession with Niagara Falls); and Suzzy could use a break from her double life as an undercover customs agent. What looks like a straight-up hit on Marla's milquetoast mate escalates into mayhem as love blooms, good crime goes bad and people get what's coming to them in Stephen F. Wilcox's dryly witty, well-paced Niagara Fall: A Novel of Crime and Comedy.
