A little bit mystery a little bit thriller a whole lot of entertainment. Daniel Evan Weiss is one of my all time favorite authors. The NY times called him "the evil kanievel of novelist" his stories are gritty to the point of being filthy but they also feature more heart and honesty than almost any of his more famous contemporaries.

The story may be fictional, the soul is not. This is a story of Light, shining through the darkness of reality all around.

Weiss' books are always philosophical, psychological and intensely sexual – more than vanilla. Enjoy!

Watch out for Daniel Evan Weiss' new book that's com
