Long Island, New York resident and NYSOWA member, Angelo Peluso, has released his first novel, Mount Misery (Skyhorse Publishing, NYC). A science fiction, mystery/thriller, Mount Misery is set in the area of the Long Island Sound and has a very strong fisheries plot. An extract from the publisher's catalog follows.
There are new residents in the Long Island Sound
. . . and they have a taste for "flesh".
“The first time the creatures tasted human blood, their savagery went undetected". Thus begins Mount Misery, a science-fiction horror tale by writer Angelo Peluso. Located on the Long Island Sound, random attacks by unknown creatures are terrorizing local residents. The question: Who is going to do something about it?
Marine biologist Katie DiNardo and ichthyologist Nick Tanner have seen the damage caused by their mystery creatures but are at a complete loss as to the attacking species. All they know is that they need to get to the bottom of this . . . and fast. While they continue to do their research, people are dropping like flies, and if they don’t figure out what’s going on, there’s no saying what this destructive species will do next.
In a similar style to Jaws, Mount Misery is a spectacular suspense novel that grips you from the first page and doesn’t let its teeth out! Fans of horror and science fiction will rejoice with Mount Misery, and readers will enjoy the throwback style that made this genre what it is today.
