Riassunto: "Call me Fortunato. You won't be the first."

So begins Amontillado, a unique tale of lust, infidelity, and murder. From rainy street corners to candlelit bookstores to hidden tunnels deep below a nameless city, you'll be transported to a surreal world in which motives are mysterious, intentions are unclear, emotions wreak havoc, and one person's desire for adventure will lead everyone down a dangerous path.

Jacob Lyons is a writer, a drunk, and a bad husband, but he is no murderer. After an unfortunate encounter on a thunderous street corner, he finds himself surrounded by hostile detectives accusing him of being exactly that.

Daniel Jefferson is Jacob's only friend. Despite problems of his own, he is determined to help Jacob overcome the downward spiral of a crumbling life, but he can't foresee the trouble that awaits.

Breeana is a book lover who escapes her tired marriage by attending literary discussions and book club gatherings. One stormy night, when the electricity fails and her group discusses The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe, she meets an intriguing newcomer who ignites her passions and offers the adventure she desires.

That intriguing newcomer is the witty and mysterious Marcus McComber, a man with a dark past and darker intentions. He will tell the tale of his romantic conquests to the fellow who sits beside him every night at the local tavern: the writer, the drunk, the accused murderer named Jacob Lyons.

Amontillado is a circular experiment in repressed desire, unrequited love, uncontrollable passion, and the need for control, all mixed with the inexplicable evils of human nature that each can inspire. In the macabre tradition of Edgar Allan Poe himself, the story propels itself to a stunning conclusion, begging you to answer one simple question:

Who kills who?

Dall'autore: Amontillado went through many iterations. It began as a single-scene short story, and that scene lives on whenever two of the main characters stand arguing in the rain beneath a streetlamp. When I moved to New Jersey and worked for a film production company, I had the crazy idea of turning that short story into a screenplay. It's the best screenplay I've written, although the competition is rather scarce.

When my daughter was born, the ex-wife and I moved back to Chicago. With no film-making friends in the area, I decided to write novels. The first novel, The Unacknowledged, was mostly an attempt to determine if I had the persistence and tenacity to endure the endeavor.  I did, but the manuscript needed work. Today, it resides in a shoe-box in my basement, serving as an effective first step in a lengthy learning process.
From there I set about adapting the Amontillado screenplay into novel form. Incidentally, six months after I finished the first draft, my marriage ended. Given a few eerie similarities between the story and my reality at the time, several years passed before I could effectively tackle the rewrites. I had a lot of help from the Chicago Writers Association and my critique group. The result is the book you see here, and it's a testament to the power of perseverance. It's been with me so long I can't tell you if it's good or not, but I'm certainly proud of it.

Of course, if you had told me, all those years ago when I wrote the short story, I'd still be working on it today, I'd have laughed at you. But, as the characters in the book learn, sometimes there's very little we can do to control the events of our lives. All we can do is ride out the storm and try to keep moving forward. When we do, it's amazing what we can accomplish.

- Kevin
