Overview

Burned out from the gritty streets and depraved criminals she deals with daily, NYPD Detective Alex Sullivan escapes to the only place she can find any peace—a Zen Monastery in the Catskill Mountains. But while there, the walls of this once peaceful sanctuary are breached by the horror of ritual murders and the slow acid drip of suspicion.

Introducing Alex Sullivan, 43 year-old NYPD homicide detective and novice Zen student, into the mystery genre. In the tradition of the best murder mysteries, it offers the reader entree into a new experience: the esoteric world of a Zen Buddhist Monastery – a place that is meant to be sacrosanct, where murder, suspicion and mayhem are not supposed to happen.

A fast-paced murder mystery that is also a fascinating psychological portrait of the struggle between light and dark forces in the spiritual world, ‘One Hand Killing’ is a new and unusual twist in the suspense genre, going well beyond Who-done-it? to a more sophisticated literary koan: What, indeed, is the sound of one hand killing?
