DescriptionRoger Olivetti has it made: a comfortable and rewarding career as an editor, a brownstone in downtown Manhattan, and a lovely, bestselling novelist wife. Then the bottom falls out of the publishing industry and his marriage simultaneously, and Roger ends up living in the basement of his mother's house in the Long Island town where he grew up. While planning his comeback, he falls in with people he once knew, or thought he did, and soon finds himself with an unwelcome new career as a suburban hit man, scrambling to stay a step ahead of the local Mafia - and his mother's book club, as they slowly puzzle out the identity of the killer. Written Out is fast-paced and funny suburban noir, Fargo on Long Island, a darkly comic tale of social mobility, self-publishing, and murder.
