In a small, peaceful town in the Pacific Northwest, there is a house. In the house, there’s a closet. People die in that closet. Sue was the first, but she won’t be the last. Cut Bank is an ordinary town, which is to say that people live there and work there and die there. But there’s an unordinary side of Cut Bank as well, and all is not as it seems.
From the inordinate number of hangings in the same closet of a quiet neighborhood home, to nosey neighbor Casey who sees a black sedan circling the block prior to every death, and a corrupt mayor and city council, Cut Bank is a deeply prejudiced town, quietly observing the secrets of its residents across three generations.
Each hanging death is ruled a suicide, but a small group of citizens begin to wonder if that’s accurate. In a race against time, they set out to uncover the truth about the deaths of their loved ones, and save the lives of those they care about – and their own – in the process.
“Egomaniac has all the charm of a bizarre, foggy walk through Twin Peaks and the psycho-thriller charm of Gone Girl, with creative twists all its own. I was enthralled from page one by quirky characters with sinister, phobia-centric hang-ups, and stayed that way until the satisfying finish. Spectacularly entertaining, Egomaniac is a chilling and charming tale.” [Monica LaSarre, Author]
