How can a homicide be prevented when it’s still only in some stranger’s head?
Kim Barbieri, a tough, street-smart New York City crime reporter unfazed by male egos and mangled bodies, is sent an anonymous note with a sinister message:
I intend to commit a murder
She doesn’t know who the killer is.
She doesn’t know who his victim will be.
She doesn’t know where, when and how he will strike.
But there is one thing she does know: If she doesn’t learn to think like a killer, someone’s going to get away with murder.
Kudos for Unwitting Accomplice:
"The tension builds page after page, chapter after chapter, between the psycho driven to kill and the reporter determined to stop him—ending with a surprise twist I just didn’t see coming. And I’m a thriller writer!" ~ Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of Gates of Fire and A Man at Arms

Read an excerpt:
My rating: 5 stars
She thought she was a street-wise, savvy reporter, able to dig through the filth to get to the truth to make the above-the-fold headline. What Kim Barbieri feared she had become was a patsy, or worse, an accomplice to murder when anonymous letters come to her from an unknown person detailing the perfect murder he was about to commit. The only things missing were the where-when & how. Does she sit on this story or share what she has with the police? Sometimes our egos get in the way of doing the right thing and innocents are harmed…
Sid Meltzer’s UNWITTING ACCOMPLICE kicks off a taut new suspense series with a hard-headed female lead who isn’t afraid to get down and dirty to get the story.
Hang on tight as a future murderer dangles every carrot he can as he plans the “perfect” murder, not done in malice, but with incredible attention to detail! Get inside the mystery man’s head, as well as Kim Barbieri’s and feel chills knowing someone just like these two could be out there now, playing a deadly game of cat and mouse.
Dark, edgy and filled with atmosphere, this is a suspense lover’s dream!
I received a complimentary copy for a voluntary and honest Blog Tour review.
Sid Meltzer took a couple of worthwhile detours on his way to becoming a crime fiction writer.
He started out as a NYS Supreme Court Probation Officer, a job that helped him see things from a criminal’s point of view— and let him peer into their minds’ many dark alleys.
Working with ethically-challenged rascals prepared him well for the caliber of people he met in his next career— advertising. That is where he learned how to craft stories that draw readers in and keep them engaged.
Unwitting Accomplice is his debut novel.
