Coming Soon ...

    In most respects David Rosser is an average Joe. In one respect, however, he is not average. Rosser is a murderously greedy man.

    When he learns that Julie, his philandering girlfriend, stands to inherit a fortune worth millions, perhaps billions, his mendacity and scheming shift into overdrive.

    Rosser’s sinister plan takes shape when he witnesses Sam Bitterman, a detective of his acquaintance, in a compromising position. He decides to use the cop to solve his girlfriend ‘problem.’

    First, however, he must reckon with a host of others, including a determined deputy district attorney, who stand between him and those millions.

    'A Bite of the Apple' is a gripping story of sex, mendacity, betrayal and murder. Such has it been ever since that first bite in paradise ...

FROM THE BOOK: "Then, in the middle of the night, as he lay next to Harold and Ruth Coleman’s daughter, it came to him! He’d need to study up some, read some technical books while being careful not to be obvious about his new ‘hobby.’ And what was David’s new hobby? Electrical engineering. And his brainstorm that night in bed? Electrocute Daddy in his hot tub ...


     'He grew quietly giddy at the prospect of a double murder. It was as though he had left the world of suckers behind. He dreamed of being alone on some South Sea island, Tahiti maybe, or somewhere in the Fijis—never mind that he didn’t speak a word of French, Fijian or Fiji Hindi—a dozen local women of particular dimensions and states of dress undulating around his beach chair and an endless supply of Mai Tais, Hula Dancers, Rum Punch and most apropos, a quirky-labeled drink—‘Sex on the Beach.’"
