Will you kill for a good story? If you are James Cooper, a 28 year old copy editor
with dreams of literary stardom, you will. After all, your girlfriend was just
crowned the voice of a new America by the New York literati, and you waste your
days editing third-rate textbooks in a dreary Chicago basement. Your first book
got panned. Your agent just dumped you. You have no future. But when your
girlfriend's corpse ends up sprawled beneath your bedroom window, you finally
know what to write about. Crime Fiction is the story of murder, betrayal and
outrageous artistic fortune.
