Set in Takoma Park among a group of college friends now raising families together, LADY KILLER explores spousal abuse and the ways that both long-standing friendships and marriages can unravel when put to the test. Mitch Lovett, a recently divorced father of two, is in love with Gail Strickland. Ed, Gail’s jealous, abusive husband just happens to have received a new gun for his birthday. Dee Wynn decides she loves Mitch as well, and that nothing is going to stand in her way. According to Matthew Norman (“Domestic Violets”), “this quick burst of a book” reminded him of “some of John Updike’s famous suburban romps.” An explosive novel that sets in motion a series of events with tragic consequences for all involved.
