A long-missing novelist, a string of murders and a new brand of heroine fire Permanent Fatal Error, a sexy, Hitchcockian literary thriller.

Everett Hyde: Cult-writer extraordinaire, once regarded as the voice of his generation; an author in the reclusive tradition of J.D. Salinger and Thomas Pynchon but now presumed dead.

“There’s a real warmth to the writing which implies that, while the author is undoubtedly having fun with some very clever plotting, he/she cares about the underlying themes, particularly the responsibility of all writers to write about what matters. This book is, first and foremost, written by an author who loves writing.” —Sheila Bugler

“An insight into the mind of a Writer that not only other writers but also every thoughtful reader would find fascinating.” —, Reader’s review
