"Women are being raped and strangled in NYC. The clues: a signature heart carved on each victim's breast with the initials a J.C.a and those of the deceased; copies of the Bible with underlined passages about infidelity; and fingerprints of a juvenile arrested in the '60s in Upstate New York. This explosive mystery thriller rips the cover off the sordid underbelly of the world of Internet sex chat rooms. About The Author: Joe Perrone Jr. worked as a sportswriter for the Passaic-Clifton, NJ, Herald News, as well as a freelance advertising copywriter. Joe was also a professional fly-fishing guide for ten years in the Catskill Mountains of New York, and has had several fly-fishing short stories published in the Mid Atlantic Fly Fishing Guide. Both Opening Day and Twice Bitten are actually set in Roscoe, NY, the small Upstate New York fishing village where Joe was a guide. is perhaps best known for his Matt Davis Mystery Series, which includes As the Twig is Bent (the first in the series), Opening Day, and Twice Bitten (the most recent in the series). Joe's first novel, Escaping Innocence (A Story of Awakening), was published in 2008, and is an evocative coming-of-age novel set in the turbulent '60s. In addition to his four novels, Joe has authored two non-fiction works, A "Real" Man's Guide to Divorce (First, you bend over and...), published in 2009 and Gone Fishin' with Kids (How to Take Your Kid Fishing and Still be Friends), co-authored with Manny Luftglass, and published in 1997. A fourth Matt Davis Mystery, Broken Promises, is scheduled for publication in May 2013. Opening Day was recently awarded an Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion, and in 2011, As The Twig Is Bent was translated into Portuguese as Pau que nasce torto by Rafa Lombardino."-- Provided by publisher.
