Description-
  • What do bestselling writers Sue Grafton, Danielle Steel, Curtis Sittenfeld (Prep) and Tom Clancy all have in common? They've all been shockingly murdered in a manner both gruesome and appropriate to their style. Now, an extremely paranoid Steven King is convinced that he will be the next victim. With great trepidation, he leaves his heavily-barricaded fortress in Bangor, Maine, to discover WHO'S KILLING THE GREAT WRITERS OF AMERICA? This hilarious send-up of the world of publishing by the author of ME AND ORSON WELLES and THE CAT WHO KILLED LILIAN JACKSON BRAUN takes us from Venice to Paris to Swan's Island and offers cameo appearances by Steve Martin.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine By making fun of five popular writers (plus a comedian and a filmmaker), the author of this satire doesn't have to dwell on just one genre. And the overarching story links the segments nicely. Each chapter focuses on one of the writers and is written in that style. There's the smug smarminess of Sue Grafton, the pack-in-everything-technical-no-matter-how-much-it-interferes-with-the-story style of Tom Clancy, the almost suffocating detail of Danielle Steel, and the let's-turn-the-everyday-things-of-life-into-something-sinister plotting of Stephen King. The relative shortness of the sketches and a decent mystery make for good listening. Arte Johnson is capable as the reader, but the volume level in his reading his uneven. He's too quiet at some points and too loud in others. R.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
