Kaufman mashes up action, horror and suspense a la Jonathan Maberry with this story starring an immortal hitman who is thrust into a supernatural adventure that will wreak mayhem over the five boroughs of New York.

APPLE TREE YARD by Louise Doughty
In the tradition of Ian McEwan's SATURDAY, APPLE TREE YARD combines serious moral dilemma with the psychological suspense and dangerous eroticism found in the blockbuster thrillers “Unfaithful” and “Fatal Attraction.” Doughty, who was shortlisted for the Orange Prize, has crafted a character whose demise is excruciating to witness and impossible to look away from.
