How can a homicide be prevented when it’s still only in some stranger’s head?
Kim Barbieri, a tough, street-smart New York City crime reporter unfazed by male egos and mangled bodies, is sent an anonymous note with a sinister message:
I intend to commit a murder
She doesn’t know who the killer is.
She doesn’t know who his victim will be.
She doesn’t know where, when and how he will strike.
But there is one thing she does know: If she doesn’t learn to think like a killer, someone’s going to get away with murder.
Kudos for Unwitting Accomplice:
"The tension builds page after page, chapter after chapter, between the psycho driven to kill and the reporter determined to stop him—ending with a surprise twist I just didn’t see coming. And I’m a thriller writer!" ~ Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of Gates of Fire and A Man at Arms

Read an excerpt:
Sid Meltzer took a couple of worthwhile detours on his way to becoming a crime fiction writer.
He started out as a NYS Supreme Court Probation Officer, a job that helped him see things from a criminal’s point of view— and let him peer into their minds’ many dark alleys.
Working with ethically-challenged rascals prepared him well for the caliber of people he met in his next career— advertising. That is where he learned how to craft stories that draw readers in and keep them engaged.
Unwitting Accomplice is his debut novel.

My Take: This is a debut novel by the writer Sid Meltzer and I look forward to reading other books by him. Kim the main character is a freelance writer for the Daily News. She wants to be an investigative reporter and is hoping each story she writes gets her to that goal. She receives an anonomous letter from someone that wanting to commit a murder. She keeps receiving letters from him and tries to stop him before he follows through with his plan. Could this story be the one that gets her to investigative reporter status? I found myself turning the pages to find out what happened next and had a hard time putting this book down to do other things that needed done. I would give this book a 4 star rating. I received a review copy of this book from Partners in Crime tours and was not required to give this book a positive review.
