A fascinating story about a dark side of the publishing industry.....

"Squelched: The Suppression of Murder in the Synagogue" by T.V LoCicero has been on and off my reading list for days before I dared to finally approach it. It is the history of the reception or rather the non-reception and suppression of the book "Murder at the Synagogue" by the same author.
Having read "Murder at the Synagogue" I was assured of the author's ability to remain objective in his writing but I did fear all the same that some bitterness or paranoia would come to light in the tale. I m

Pretty much a yawn. After reading the book that this book is about and enjoying it so much I was looking forward to something truly sinister in the annals of publishing, but although the author investigated why his book didn't sell well and confirmed that there was some background pressure to, as he puts it, "squelch" it, he comes up with nothing other than speculation as to motives (though of course, he's quite sure that his speculations are accurate), and certainly nothing that sounds remotely ...more

An intriguing, but at times baffling book that raises as many questiuons as it answers. Why did all this go down the way it did? Why take a bite out of someone else's writing career because the book he just wrote MIGHT embarrass someone? Why do so many people in the industry play along with shenangians like these? This is a chilling expose of miscondict in an industry I'm now glad I never made a career out of. Yeesh, you can keep it. Recommended for those who want to see how an everyday, ordinar ...more

Not a very interesting story. But it did make me want to read Murder in the Synagogue. I thought the author had a nice writing style but the story itself did not keep my attention.

Easy to read. The writing was good but the story isn't all that interesting. I was compelled to finish it though. Now I need to read Murder in the Synagogue.
