JEALOUSY IS A GREEN-EYED MONSTER AND HIS NAME IS WILLIAM BARNES
A girl with power over luck. An obsessed author consumed by envy. Two nemeses drawn down a path from which only one will return.
After witnessing her mother's brutal murder, ten-year-old Nem's life seems destined for tragedy. Then she discovers an old journal which holds an incredible secret. Nem now possesses the ability to control the fortunes of others. It is said luck is probability taken personally, and she’s about to get personal with her own brand of justice.
Decades later, the literary world hails William Barnes’ debut as a masterpiece. His best seller success, though, doesn't survive his next two books. Readers abandon him, his publisher cancels his contract, and his agent isn't returning his calls.
Meanwhile his undeserving protégé, Orelia Mason, enjoys a meteoric rise in the charts, coinciding suspiciously with his fall. So William embarks on a plan to win back the life he’s certain she has stolen. If people die along the way, well, that's their problem. He'll discover though, that battling fate when luck is not on your side can be a deadly game.
This is A Star is Born meets A Portrait of Dorian Gray and the consequences are not pretty. In fact, they're darn well bloody.
From the international best selling author readers call the new Stephen King, comes a dark and twisted tale of jealousy, revenge and a very special power.

I felt like this could have been written by Dean Koontz in the early 2000's … more like the mature King, as in "Duma Key" and not "Carrie" or "Pet Cemetery”. Bill Schmidt (Holey One) (USA)
