Publisher's Summary

"You want to know what deceit tastes like? It's sweet. Like honey."
Over the course of his shady legal career, Victor Carl has made a host of bad decisions, but letting his ex-fiancée, Julia, fall back into his life and into his bed might be the worst. Julia's husband has just been murdered, her fingerprints are all over the crime scene, and $1.7 million in cash has inexplicably vanished. If Victor didn't know better, he might think Julia was setting him up.
But Julia is drop-dead gorgeous and lust trumps reason 24/7 in Victor Carl's world. Victor wants to believe the Beatles were right, that all you need is love. But why are the cops accusing Victor of murder? And what is the murder weapon doing in his bedroom? And who is the dead woman in the freezer?
Suddenly, the wary lawyer is no longer fighting to rekindle a lost love... he's fighting to save himself.

Fun read, greater listen

I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderfully hilarious mystery and sendup to "The Postman Always Rings Twice." The main treat, however, was the reader, William Dufris. This one-person cast of thousands has more voices than Sybil, and to hear his Jamaican-thug patois is to die for.

All We Need Is Love

If you buy that love can besot almost an entire ensemble of average folk... And that, drugged by a hormonal rush they will juggle power saws, vials of nitro, and writhing Death Adders... Or things at least that risky. And that they will never learn doing stuff like that is NEVER is a good idea... Well, you'll like "A Killer's Kiss". Me? I thought they were groaningly dumb. Worse yet, I get the sense that Lashner was an English Lit major who's turned to thrillers to make a living. Who else has college notes like these to crib allusions from?

But still, William Dufris is a marvelous reader. And William Lashner can write both dialogue and monologue that's so authentic you feel like your standing right there among these voices. You know what? I'm going to get another Lashner novel some time. But not until I've washed all that hormonal splatter off my imagination. It's irritating stuff.
