The Monsters of Gramercy Park : New York gang lord Wilson Velez is serving a life sentence in solitary confinement. Hundreds of miles away, celebrated crime novelist Lizbeth Greene is falling apart as her inspiration runs dry. So when Lizbeth reads of Velez, her decision is instant. She will write a book about him. A true-crime classic to revive her failing career. Nervous and withdrawn, Wilson is far from being the cold-blooded, charismatic killer that Lizbeth had expected. But she is gradually drawn into Wilson's sinister world, and the two engage in a complex dance of attraction and rejection: Lizbeth needs Wilson to restore her career; Wilson needs Lizbeth to sway an upcoming appeals case and keep him from returning to solitary confinement. As they reveal secrets that are more and more incriminating, their increasingly intimate and dangerous exchanges build to an unforgettable climax.
