Reporter Lenny Holcomb speaks for the dead. He tells their final stories. He writes their obituaries. After decades on the obit desk, Lenny has learned to uncover something else – the dying secrets of the deceased. This sends him back into the streets with a shrewd mind and a recharged sense of purpose.
When a string of deaths rocks the Pennsylvania capital and roils the political fortunes of governor and would-be presidential candidate Lowell Winters, the secrets Lenny learns transform him into an unlikely investigative reporter. But Lenny is on a collision course with the newspaper’s ace reporter and he’s headed for a high-stakes showdown with Pennsylvania’s ambitious governor, who just may have played a role in the death of his pretty press secretary.
Yet the true source of power – and danger – battling against Lenny has yet to reveal himself. This mysterious, behind-the-scenes powerbroker has been pulling the strings all along and always seems to be one step ahead. He’ll stop at nothing to defeat Lenny and ensure the ultimate triumph of his own ruthless political agenda.
Can Lenny put together the murderous truth in time? Or will the last obituary he pens be his own?
Author John Luciew plumbs the depths of power, politics and the press in this updated and expanded author's version of the first Lenny Holcomb novel, published under its original title. The result is a gripping, nail-biting race for the truth.
After all, some stories just won’t stay buried in the back pages...
Kill The Story
by John Luciew
~4 stars out of 5, based on 4 reviews
A serial killer known as “The Reader” is murdering journalists in the manner of their most famous stories. Dubbed the “Media Murders” by the press, the killings baffle authorities, turn once-aggressive reporters into prey and shock the country in what soon becomes a national story. The cunning killer’s first strike is cleverly disguised as a political assassination, mirroring John Hinckley’s attempt on Ronald Reagan. As it turns out, the fallen reporter had covered Reagan’s shooting. It’s the first of several bizarre killings with eerie similarities to sensational stories the murdered journalists once covered. The story is so big, The New York Times assigns its new national reporter, Cassandra “Cassie” Jordan, to cover its every development. The assignment returns Cassie to her familiar stomping grounds of Harrisburg, Pa., reuniting her with Frank “Telly” Tellis, chief political reporter for The Harrisburg Herald. Only Telly can put together the murderous truth as the secret motive for the killings is buried deep in his journalistic past. But can he solve the puzzle before falling under The Reader’s deadly crosshairs? John Luciew, the author of FATAL DEAD LINES, once again plumbs the depths of power, politics and the press, and the result is pulse-pounding suspense.
Secrets of the Dead
by John Luciew
5 stars out of 5, based on 1 review
In the streets of Harrisburg, a man is killed in what appears to be a straightforward hit-and-run – until the victim turns out to have no identity whatsoever. Obituary writer Lenny Holcomb’s ability to glimpse the secrets of his column’s subjects leads him to suspect that his old friend, ex-congressman George Packard, may have had a hand in the “accident.” But if so, why do all the clues point to Packard’s slick political rival? With the help of ambitious reporter Jacqueline Towers, Lenny follows a trail of political spin and corruption to the highest levels of Pennsylvania government – where the right influence can make any problem disappear. Unfortunately, some very powerful people think Lenny Holcomb has just become a problem …
In his sequel to Fatal Dead Lines and Death Notice, John Luciew doubles the action and triples the suspense. And the odds against Lenny Holcomb ever finding the truth couldn’t be higher. It’s a rip-roaring political yarn with an authentic, torn-from-the-headlines feel. You won’t be able to put it down.
