All hell breaks loose . . .
. . . in Little Bang, Texas, when two citizens are found shot to death in their luxury cars, each with one hand missing - chopped off! One victim is the wife of TexNext Industries CEO Gideon Moore; the other is Moore's chief financial officer Frank Winckelmann. As reported by Gazette city editor John Wiltsey, the tragedies first appear to implicate Moore, a businessman who is already in serious professional and marital trouble. But The Chopper Case, as it is known locally, soon becomes the epicenter of further fatalities and mysteries which involve a surprising number of logical suspects - beautiful divorcees, mistresses, athletes, executives, rogue cops, private eyes, high tech engineers. If the closing chapters of Lewis Kornfeld's ingenious fast-paced novel lead you to believe its multiple manhunts and torrid love affairs just fade away without certifiable denouements . . . well, you might be right. But then again, you might be terribly wrong!

Longtime president of Radio Shack and father of the first personal computer to be widely retailed nationally (the TRS-80 in 1977), Lewis Kornfeld turned to authoring after retiring as vice chairman of the then parent corporation, Tandy Corp. His first book, To Catch a Mouse, Make a Noise Like a Cheese, a best-selling primer on advertising and marketing, was published by Prentice-Hall, later by the University of Texas Press and The Summit Group. He has B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Denver, and an honorary (LHD) degree from Boston University. A native of Boston MA, and a WWII Marine Corps officer, he lives in Fort Worth TX.
