In Burying the Newspaper Man by Curtis Ippolito we meet Marcus Kemp, an ordinary police officer in San Diego, California. There is nothing special about him or his life - until he finds a body hidden in a stolen car. Not just any dead person though; this is Marcus’s childhood abuser. Marcus doesn’t want the killer brought to justice and will do whatever it takes to help him get away. But he isn’t just putting his job on the line. He’s risking his freedom too but things are about to take an impossible turn as his investigation leads him in an unexpected direction. Now Marcus must make a decision that could change his life forever.

Burying the Newspaper Man by Curtis Ippolito is a twisty thriller that just keeps you turning those pages. You are hooked from the start and drawn deep into the story as it twists and turns its way towards the climax of the plot. This is a great story but it also centers on child abuse and this is dealt with in a sensitive way while, at the same time, it pulls no punches. The story is descriptive, so much so, it transports you immediately into it, and you are drawn to the main protagonist, Marcus, like a moth to a flame. Yes, you will find yourself rooting for him and you want to see justice done – the question is, which justice? This is an entertaining, high-octane thriller that won't let you down and will evoke some serious emotions in you. As a debut novel, Curtis Ippolito has knocked it out of the park and, whether you are a fan of crime thrillers or not, you will enjoy this story.
