(John Crudele, NEW YORK POST)In SIREN’S TEARS, the death of a spider monkey in a South American rain forest is the prelude to a series of apparently unsolvable human murders in Canada and the United States. Only when private investigator Alton Rhode is approached by an elderly cleric -- who may know more than he lets on -- does the killer have anything to worry about. Urged on by an unlikely underworld ally, Rhode starts to piece together the mystery. But his hunt for the truth makes him a target of a diabolical killer who uses sex to seek perverted revenge.In THE VIRON CONSPIRACY, a prominent Chicago law firm is asked to investigate the bizarre murder of a rich and powerful chief executive. The murder, complete with grisly photos, had become a YouTube sensation. The killer was obvious -- and now dead. But the victims widow doesnt buy the official version and wants to punish the people she believes are really guilty. Her only stipulation: New York sleuth Jake Scarne must take the case. Scarne is reluctant to get involved – until he finds out who the widow is!In both novels, the hunt for a killer (or killers) spans thousands of miles and is waged against a backdrop of strange and deadly incidents involving deranged scientists and deadly toxins.ABOUT THE AUTHORLawrence De Maria is a Pulitzer-nominated journalist who cut his teeth on financial corruption at The New York Times and Forbes.
