Synopsis: A serial killer is showing Hoagy his novel in progress--and every chapter is murder....
Once Stewart "Hoagy" Hoag was the toast of the publishing world and the husband of luscious Broadway beauty Merilee Nash. Now, reunited with Merilee in proud parenthood, Hoagy ghosts celebrity memoirs to pay the rent. And solves the occasional murder, aided by Lulu, his anchovy-eating basset hound.
A ghostwriter usually chooses his clients, but this time Hoagy finds himself chosen. His new client calls himself the Answer Man, and he's mailing Hoagy anonymous installments of his work in progress. Each one narrates the stalking and strangling of a lovely young woman--and it's no sooner in Hoagy's mailbox than the cops find her corpse: branded with orange-lipstick question marks. Hoagy's deadly pen pal--bent on a megabestseller and a movie deal--is seeking his literary advice, and Hoagy's being tagged by both the police and the press as a twisted killer's go-between.
Hoagy has some questions of his own for the elusive Answer Man. But the closer he gets to the truth, the less he likes what he finds. For Hoagy fears the prolific killer may be someone too close to him for comfort. And that the next chapter of the Answer Man's grisly opus might be Hoagy's last.
From the Paperback edition.
From the Publisher: Stewart "Hoagy" Hoag's eighth adventure presents the one-time It Boy of modern American fiction with the most bizarre, challenging, and frightening assignment of his career.
He's got himself the hottest celebrity in New York--the Answer Man. The trouble is, he's never actually met the Answer Man--and he doesn't really want to. Because the Answer Man is a shrewd, cold-blooded serial killer who is stalking and murdering beautiful single women, writing about his crimes in great detail and mailing the chapters of his work-in-progress to the man he has chosen to be his collaborator--Stewart Hoag, that dapper and celebrated, highly reluctant ghostwriter to the stars. The Answer Man wants a number one bestseller, you see, and maybe a movie deal as well.
Hoagy's been in tight spots before, but never anything like this: The police and press are all over him, and a multiple-murderer is using him as a go-between. Then, as if things weren't bad enough, it begins to dawn on Hoagy that the Answer Man may, in fact, be someone he knows-his oldest friend in the world. What he doesn't know is what he's going to do about it-except try to stay alive!
