Eat What You Kill Chapter Guides on Facebook

Posted by on Apr 3, 2014 in Blog Posts | 0 comments

Since EAT WHAT YOU KILL was released last week, I’ve received dozens of emails, tweets and Facebook messages asking about and commenting on the many, possibly obscure, references in the book.  Both for fun and to enhance readers’ enjoyment, I’ve created Chapter Guides on Facebook, chronologically by chapter, with hundreds of photos of places, people and things encountered in EAT WHAT YOU KILL.  So if, for example, you’re curious about the reference to Fawn Liebowitz in chapter 3, you can find that photo album on...

Mystery Scene reviews Eat What You Kill

Posted by on Mar 1, 2014 in Blog Posts | 0 comments

I love this incredibly well-written review by respected critic Hank Wagner in Mystery Scene Magazine: After experiencing firsthand the negative effects of an “act of God” on the stock of a company he was touting (when that firm’s charismatic leader dies suddenly of a heart attack), high-strung Wall Street analyst Evan Stoess is a little more proactive the next time he is close to a big score, murdering a famous but flighty game designer after shorting the stock of the designer’s company. The obscene amounts of money he reaps as a result leads...

Kirkus Compares Evan Stoess to Hannibal Lecter

Posted by on Feb 16, 2014 in Blog Posts | 0 comments

With one humorous sentence, Kirkus has compared EAT WHAT YOU KILL’s protagonist, Evan Stoess, to Hannibal Lecter, the psychiatrist-cannibal from Thomas Harris’s books made famous by Sir Anthony Hopkins. You remember Hannibal the Cannibal, right?  He ate people.  Literally, he ATE people.  He ate people he didn’t like, and he ate people at random, too (e.g, the census taker who once tried to test him. Hannibal ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti).  With the exception of hunger, Hannibal didn’t seem to...

Booklist reviews EAT WHAT YOU KILL

Posted by on Feb 15, 2014 in Blog Posts | 0 comments

Launched in 1905, Booklist is a publication of the American Library Association that provides critical reviews of books. I love this review because the Booklist reviewer, Stacy Alesi, found Evan to be sympathetic.  Once that happens — once a reader starts to sympathize with my protagonist — I pretty much know that person is going to like EAT WHAT YOU KILL. Evan is a difficult character to like, certainly.  He does horrible things for the most mundane reasons (not to mention for money — but that’s easier to understand,...

Posted by on Jan 28, 2014 in Blog Posts | 0 comments

Publishers Weekly Fiction Review: Eat What You Kill January 27, 2014  Stephen Frey fans will welcome Scofield’s debut, a financial thriller that accessibly conveys the intricacies of a world in which a company can make millions on other companies whose stocks decline in value. New Yorker Evan Stoess, scarred by his time at a prep school where his less-than-fashionable attire earned him the denigrating nickname of Kmart, is obsessed with making as much money as he possibly can—and with rubbing his success in the faces of his teenage foes. He’s...
