"Where do you get your ideas?"
by Lisa Scottoline, author of Killer Smile
It's the most common question people ask me, and the answer for Killer Smile is simple:
From the heart.
I spun that fact of U.S. and family history into Killer Smile, which is a fast-paced thriller about murder, family, and justice, which stars lawyer Mary DiNunzio. The plot? Mary gets a terrifying telephone call while she's working late, then finds a shadow lurking at her front door. When someone close to her turns up dead, she begins to suspect that the case she's been working on - involving the suicide of an Italian-American in the internment camp at Fort Missoula - may not be ancient history after all.
That's Killer Smile. I believe that readers will learn something from the book, get scared by it, and even laugh out loud - and ultimately, not be able to put it down.
Killer Smile is the book I was born to write.
