New from Overlook: THE KILLER WITHIN
It's a bittersweet publication date for us at Overlook--today THE KILLER WITHIN: IN THE COMPANY OF MONSTERS hits shelves. The book is the memoir of the late bestselling crime writer Philip Carlo, who passed away in November at the age of 61. The book details his life with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gherig's disease).
A resident of New York City and author of the bestselling The Ice Man, Gaspipe, and The Butcher, Carlo continued to write in the face of this daunting disease. His story is an important one, and one that will hit home for the millions who suffer from ALS and their loved ones. His grace in the face of adversity is evident on every page.
