Mitzi cover

    Presenting the best in classic crime writing, the Gryphon Crime Series showcases work by some of the best names in crime writing. Classic work from the great years. All books are trade paperbacks with stunning full-colour dustjackets be master artist Ron Turner. Each book also features an introduction by a new or classic crime author.

Mitzi will shock and surprise and entertain you. And it will stick in your mind long after you've turned the final page. Avallone uses the murder suspense novel as a forum to make some disturbing observations on the things men and women to do each other in the name of "love", and the consequences that can result.

Avo is, above all, a storyteller. And the psychological insights and messages contained in Mitzi never get in the way of a fast-paced, rollercoaster ride of a story. Avallone's skill hooks you neatly with the opening passages and then propels you headlong to the last shattering scene. Along the way you are at first revolted by the things Mitzi Marsh does ... then you begin to sympathise with her, to become even more disturbed by the things done to Mitzi ... and by the end you may even find yourself quietly, grimly nodding in agreement with the final "justice" she is forced to mete out.

You may very well never wish to meet a woman like Mitzi in person. But you'll be glad you made the acquaintance of Mitzi, Mike Avallone's smashing novel of betrayal, twisted love, revenge, and murder!
