Description

Charlie D is the host of a successful late-night radio call-in show. His listeners have a particularly intimate relationship with him and often reveal much about themselves, confident that he will honor their trust and that he can save them. In their minds, he is perfect: one of life's winners. But Charlie feels he's something of a fake. His easy confidence on-air belies the reality for a man born with a wine-colored birthmark that covers half his face.

Love You to Death covers two hours on "The World According to Charlie D" during which he must both discover the long-time listener who is killing the people who trust him and attempt to come to terms with the man behind the birthmark.

Charlie, this isn't about a lonely guy who wants you to tell him it's okay to have a cyberskin love doll as his fantasy date. There's a murderer out there. We can't handle this on our own.

Editorial Reviews

"Leads you through a who-dun-it mystery…Will work well for the reader just wetting their appetite or specifically wanting a fast read."

— Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Media

"Suspenseful, has a great surprise, [and a] satisfying ending. I love mysteries and truly enjoyed this one. I highly recommend these Rapid Reads for those reluctant readers. They are short, fast paced, high interest and just what they need."

— Ruth Argraves, Library Assistant

"Bowen takes a concept and crafts a story that is tightly-paced and thoroughly gripping…The characters are swiftly drawn, but they aren't clichéd, and the dialogue is witty, gritty, and contemporary…Not only will appeal to high school students who have read their way through 'Orca Soundings' and want something a bit more challenging, but I am certain that Love You to Death will find an audience amongst capable readers who want and need a rapid read. Highly Recommended."

— CM Magazine

"This well-paced novel will appeal to readers who like humor, suspense and a believable mystery."

— BookLinx
