A Spoil for Crimson Glory
Ned Banks is a typical college student who cares more about women and booze than getting an actual education. But people are dying; specifically, men from his former Fraternity. Does this make him a target?
The crime scenes all have one thing in common: blood everywhere. To make matters worse, Ned's new girlfriend Kelly seems to have a very unusual enthusiasm for the sight of blood. Is she the killer?
As the body count rises, Ned becomes more and more infatuated with Kelly and also more and more convinced she's the killer.
Can a slacker like Ned survive this turmoil? Odds are definitely not in his favor.
The User Pool
In the world of technology, a User is someone who uses a computer. More specifically, it's someone who asks stupid questions about the use of that computer.
In the context of this novel, a Pool refers to an available supply, the use of which is shared by a group.
It's the 1990's and the rise of technology; it's also the rise of insanity at one of the largest entertainment companies in Hollywood.
When the VP of I.T. shoots and kills the C.I.O. in Weekly Staff in a murderous rage of revenge, his manager of I.T. must figure out a way to survive since he's on a very short list of targets.
Either everyone in this Company is insane and the main character is the only sane person; or it's the other way around. Which seems more likely?
