About the Book:

New York City public defender Macie Wild takes the homicide case of a burglar the tabloids nickname the Buzz Killer—for his MO of lobby-buzzing apartments to select his targets. Stonewalled by a hostile DA, she crosses paths with Gunnar Cody, an ex-detective dismissed from the NYPD’s elite surveillance unit. Their uneasy partnership becomes fraught with moral conflicts and romantic sparks. In constant danger from a ruthless contract killer, they collide with an unscrupulous pharmaceutical CEO, a playboy prince, rogue FBI agents, a high-tech cat burglar, a sadistic call girl, plus a scheme to launder illegal Russian billions through Manhattan luxury real estate.


“I can say with high confidence that any fan of Castle will love Buzz Killer by Tom Straw, a masterfully entertaining mystery of pulse-pounding fun. Richard Castle has met his match!”

 —Andrew W. Marlowe, Creator and Executive Producer of Castle

“Tom Straw’s new novel, Buzz Killer, puts him in the company of the best mystery writers working today. The story is compelling and riveting. And, most of all, utterly satisfying. But it’s the characters and dialogue that keep bringing this book home. Meet Macie Wild and Gunnar Cody. Unforgettable individually. Unbeatable together. Believe me, you don’t want to be on the wrong side of these two.”

Clyde Phillips, author of the Jane Candiotti novels, Fall From Grace, Blindsided, and Sacrifice
