Inhaltsangabe: Lee Fairchild has realized every actor's dream-a theater of her own. The dream is about to turn into a nightmare. Who-or what-lives on the third floor? The theater was an abandoned burlesque house where the homeless lived-until Lee and her staff scrub it out. It doesn't matter, she tells herself, that the theater sits in Hell's Kitchen on the seedy fringes of Times Square, that it's under-budgeted and understaffed and that she (as Administrative Director) will play only one role this first season. It's an Equity theater, offering five plays in repertory. Times Square redevelopment makes the property desirable. With her husband recently dead and her daughter away at college, Lee falls into a passionate affair with a younger man. Bizarre, seemingly unrelated events-beginning with a homeless man found dead on the third floor of the theater-escalate to ritual murder. Qualities that make her a good actress-imagination, empathy-pull her through the looking glass into a nightmare world, to the brink of death. Over all hovers a Mexican mask, stolen from the tomb at Monte Alban, its eyes glittering with secrets of the ancient Aztecs and sacrifice. The characters are drawn from the authors' years of experience in theater and film: Alan Dunbar, Lee's brilliant but erratic artistic director, with mysterious gaps in his resume; Ernst Kromer, guest director from Europe, tyrannical, rigid and uncooperative; Michael Day, Lee's sexy and mysterious assistant; wraithlike Fleur Mahoney, whose first role is a dead girl-and she almost is; Barry Blackwell, talented actor, compulsive practical joker; Harry O'Brien, company stage manager, who'd kill for a role. Characters from the "real" world include Alan's lover, Walter Kaplan, eccentric psychiatrist and medical anthropolo¬gist; Heather, Lee's 18-year-old daughter, who has a surprising secret life; pock-marked, cynical NYPD Detective Mordecai Green, who moonlights as an actor. Praise for Butcher of Dreams: "Smart, tough, talented, sensitive Lee Fairchild is just the kind of woman who can successfully manage and act in her own off-Broadway theatre. She can cope with the seedy streets of New York in the 1980's, and can juggle the many needs of her gifted but tormented co-workers with the vision of great shows. But Lee is emotionally vulnerable because of her husband's recent death, and when a ritually mutilated body is found in her theatre she must fight her way through a bewildering mesh of loves, fears, egos, myths, and blood to discover the truth that will save her theatre and herself. Full of authentic gritty detail about off-Broadway in the 1980's, Butcher of Dreams will keep readers turning pages." P.M. Carlson, author of CROSSFIRE ?An actress is poisoned; an actor is stabbed. Lee's call to a temp agency has brought her Michael Day, a smooth-talking young man who insists he has plenty of money to buy her lavish gifts. Is Michael just infatuated, or is he unbalanced? With a whole troupe, there are plenty of suspects. Wyman has a radio and TV background, and Williams is an actress, so the backstage details have authority, and Lee's story is effectively told.??Barbara McIntyre, Akron Beacon-Journal ?Williams and Wyman have put together a first-rate suspense. They draw the reader in from the first page, and hold them with their vivid descriptions of ritualistic goings-on in this New York theater, even as Lee Fairchild is struggling to keep her dream afloat. This mystery is so character driven that it is easy to suspect any of the theater company...they all have something to hide. But it is Lee's ultimate struggle with loneliness and an overloaded professional struggle that brings the story to its shocking climax. Don't start this wonderful story if you have something else to do, because this fantastic plot will win the fight! A big thumbs up!!? Midwest Book Review Winner, Best Mystery/Thriller/Suspense, Reader Views Annual Literary Awards Winner, Global E-Book Award, Thriller Category

Vom Verlag:

Butcher of Dreams is a gripping suspense thriller set in the 1980's Hell's Kitchen when porno shops, girlie shows, prostitution and crime ran rampant. With this seedy and ominous off-Broadway theater district as the backdrop, Lee Fairchild is attempting to start a repertory theater in an abandoned burlesque house. Not only is someone or something threatening the future of the theater (Lee's dream-come-true), but this force threatens her very existence. Who is responsible for the ritualistic sacrifice on the third floor of the theater? Is the stolen Aztec mask and its ancient curse somehow connected to the bizarre events? Who is the psychopath/sociopath behind the destruction that begins to affect the entire company? Lee's mercurial cast members and stage crew become suspects as events begin to spiral out of control. The authors' command of the English language as well as their knowledge of literature adds both nuance and interest to this well-plotted white knuckle read.

Readers will come away with a deeper understanding of the complexity and drive of those who pursue theater as a career--actors, directors, playwrights--and a new respect for what they do for love.

Carlson, author of CROSSFIRE Butcher of Dreams is original, creative, and suspenseful. The ending made me breathless and I stayed up until 3 am finishing the dramatic last third of the novel! However, it is quite amusing in places as well, creating comic relief. One of the talents of the authors is to cast suspicion on almost all the players. The insight one gains into the mind and motivations of a psychopath and the descriptions of the occult are truly captivating and gripping, a reflection of excellent research. Butcher of Dreams is so much more than mystery. With its original metaphors, similes and lyrical descriptions, it is an enthralling and creative novel. I loved it!
