Already optioned for film, The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is Peter Swansons electrifying tale of romantic noir, with shades of Hitchcock and reminiscent of the classic movie Body Heat. It is the story of a man swept into a vortex of irresistible passion and murder when an old love mysteriously reappears.
On an ordinary Friday evening at his favorite Boston tavern, George Fosss comfortable, predictable life is shattered when a beautiful woman sits down at the bar, a woman who vanished without a trace twenty years ago.
Liana Dector isnt just an ex-girlfriend, the first love George couldnt quite forget. Shes also a dangerous enigma and quite possibly a cold-blooded killer wanted by the police. Suddenly, shes back--and she needs Georges help. Ruthless men believe she stole some money . . . and they will do whatever it takes to get it back.
George knows Liana is trouble. But he cant say no--he never could--so he makes a choice that will plunge him into a terrifying whirlpool of lies, secrets, betrayal, and murder from which there is no sure escape.
Bold and masterful, full of malicious foreboding and subtle surprises, The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is an addictive, nonstop thriller--an ever-tightening coil of suspense that grips you right up to its electrifying end.
