Tenth Man

Tenth Man

by E. William Podojil




Jack knew a madman was after him, for reasons he knew but couldn't understand. He had no choice but to run. Jack Barillo is losing friends-the hard way. A cunning killer named Lucifer is savaging the beautiful young men from Jack's past, eliminating them with a surgeon's touch, one by one. From Lincoln Park in Chicago, to the spire mansions and tradesmen houses of Amsterdam, to the rounded hills and uncharted mountains of the Le Marche region in Italy, the manhunter ruthlessly stalks and destroys his prey with horrifying precision. And each victim brings him one step closer to Jack. The Tenth Man is a twisted mystery full of secrets and lies, a sexy, scary thriller that plays out across oceans, continents, and lifetimes. Haunted by a string of grisly murders to which he's somehow linked, Jack escapes to Europe with little to his name save the will to survive. With the help of a resourceful gay couple, a determined Chicago homicide detective and her well-connected husband, and a mysterious FBI agent, Jack builds a new life, finding success, wealth, and love. Everything but peace. Then, just as Jack starts to convince himself that he's imagined the decade-long nightmare, Lucifer strikes again. The Tenth Man, E. William Podojil's first novel, is the dark tale of one man's need for revenge-and another's need to survive.

I thought this book was quite good. It started as a sexy gay story and ended up as something much different. Some of the murder scenes were a bit harsh.
