Synopsis: A banker with a devil-may-care attitude--and a smile that conceals a devilish impulse. A literary agent who is quick to anger--and much too easy to manipulate. A mechanic with a desperate need to be liked by everyone--no matter the cost. And a psychologist who keeps all their secrets--especially his own . . .
They meet every week in the dingy back room of Mackey's Steak and Ale Tavern in New York City. An informal group of men with one thing in common: They all suffer the sting of a broken heart. But soon the anger turns to hate. The rejection turns to rage. And the Broken Hearts Club spins violently out of control--exploding into murderous acts of vengeance.
Named "the richest cop in New York" by the Daily News, a man both intense and chivalrous, Detective Voort is assigned the case, determined to catch an elusive killer who is always one death ahead . . . who appears to switch identities with each new victim . . . and who knows how to cover his tracks with cold efficiency.
Then Voort falls victim to his own broken heart, his growing anguish threatening to compromise the investigation--as his ex-girlfriend unknowingly becomes the target of a frightening new breed of serial terror.
In this sleek, stylish, sexy thriller, Ethan Black gives us a chilling novel of psychological suspense that races like an adrenaline rush through surprising twists of plot--and ends with a shattering, shocking climax. Breaking up may be hard to do. With The Broken Hearts Club it's fatal.
Review: Anyone who has ever been dumped or treated badly in a relationship can sympathize with the members of the Broken Hearts Club, a group of patients of the New York City psychologist Ian Bainbridge who meet weekly in the back room of a seedy steakhouse to share their pain and provide Dr. Bainbridge with material for a book. It's only after a couple of meetings in journalist Ethan Black's sly and sharply written debut thriller that our suspicions begin to take shape. Why are all of the club members men? And why do the women who have wronged them suddenly start dying in violent, brutal ways?
The NYPD's richest detective, Conrad Voort, 29-year-old heir to an historic family name and fortune, doesn't at first see how the murders are related. He's mired in a doomed relationship of his own, with TV news producer Camilla Ryan, who happens to be one of Dr. Bainbridge's patients but definitely not a member of his Broken Hearts Club. Camilla also races kayaks for fun and exercise, so you know that some kind of water-based action scene featuring a kayak is bound to occur.
Black plays tricks and takes liberties (Voort resembles John Sandford's Lucas Davenport, another rich detective), but he has the sense to let readers arrive at conclusions at their own pace. It's only after the last page that most of them will find themselves thinking back to scenes of Club meetings and asking, "But why...?" and, "But who...?" --Dick Adler
