Kent Harrington. Dennis McMillan Publications, $30 (288pp) ISBN 978-0-939767-40-3

In Kent Harrington's (The American Boys) The Tattooed Muse, a tribute to Alfred Hitchcock, a writer's group goes haywire when one of its members, a struggling, skateboarding novelist, attempts murder and then commits suicide. His master-of-the-universe best friend Michael, who drives a Porsche and owns a country house, has been lending members of the group money, and they begin to wonder if he's drawing their attention away from some behind-the-scenes activities.
