Ryan Rossetti and Jake Thomas were the two Major League-bound rivals on their high school baseball team, heading straight into history as the first two of Canarsie's favorite sons to make it out and make it big. Until Ryan hurt his pitching arm and landed a ten-dollar-an-hour life as a house painter. Lucky Jake made it all the way, and he and his ten-million-dollar signing bonus are heading back for a publicity-motivated homecoming weekend that has all of Brooklyn waiting to explode in celebration.
But he's got a nasty surprise in store: Ryan is involved in an intense, addictive relationship with Jake's fiancee Christina, who now faces a choice between love in a Brooklyn tenement or a heartless marriage on Easy Street. "Lights Out" is vintage Jason Starr, a razor-sharp crime novel that brilliantly combines biting social satire, explosive suspense, and honest, revealing human drama.
Jason Starr is the Barry and Anthony Award-winning author of six previous novels. He was born and raised in Brooklyn, and now lives in Manhattan with his wife and daughter.Visit his Web site at
