The murder of a young woman triggers a series of events that pit a philosophical assassin, a charismatic detective, and the heir of a vicious mob family against each other. The second edition of Bruce Crown's debut novel, Chronic Passions is a narrative about the lovelorn Clark desperately trying to keep the past at bay, and the witty Niccolò investigating the disappearance of his childhood sweetheart. The novel bends the simple question of right and wrong by turning rich philosophical ideas into pragmatic actions in the modern world. A master of similes and allegories, Crown presents the plot outside our traditional concept of time and builds a narrative that inquires about what it means to love a woman or fight for justice.

From the Inside Flap:

Chronic Passions is a modern noir that blends serene introspection with suspenseful atmosphere. Bound by his vocation and morally inverted sense of justice, Clark Kóróna, a charismatic assassin, grieves the loss of his fiancée and tries to stay one step ahead of the police while outwitting his vicious employers. His counterpart Detective Charles Matthews balances the memories of his nostalgic childhood with his present open cases. His new partner, a seemingly suave and laid-back Interpol agent from Italy, traverses the labyrinthian maze of illusion and deception during a routine murder case that has left the city's seedy underbelly scattering in fear. A study of mortality and love face-to-face with the cruel and decadent atmosphere of the modern world, and the length people might go to in order to achieve them, Bruce Crown's Chronic Passions spirals through the creative power of his various characters to allow the reader to glimpse inside the minds of a madman, a genius, a thug-for-hire, and those in love.

About the Author:

Book Description Alternate Path Publications. Paperback. Condition: New. 402 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.0in. x 0.9in.CHRONIC PASSIONS is not a fools errand post-modern liberal or conservative social critique. It is not a Disney fairy-tale meant to pervert ideals of good and evil, right and wrong, love, and hate. It is not an emotional roller-coaster, it is an emotional submarine meant to submerge you to the darkest recesses of your mind. It is not a universal bestseller nor has it been translated into 3 trillion languages like other books youre used to picking up at the store or on Amazon. The author is not a reporter, he is not an actor and not a politician, he doesnt need your respect or recognition. He has not won any awards and has no distinctions bestowed upon him by your intellectuals, and sages. He tells you this story reluctantly, hoping that youll understand its overtures but knowing that you probably wont since its not a movie about young promiscuous women, rich powerful men, wizards or vampires and other surreal garbage you usually enjoy. Its not meant to be read cuddled in a snuggie-blanket on your iPad with hot cocoa on a snowy Christmas Eve. It was written in darkness with a glass full of Springbank and tears, and that is how it should be read. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
