Description

Charlie D is the host of a successful late-night radio call-in show. His listeners have a particularly intimate relationship with him and often reveal much about themselves, confident that he will honor their trust and that he can save them. In their minds, he is perfect: one of life's winners. But Charlie feels he's something of a fake. His easy confidence on-air belies the reality for a man born with a wine-colored birthmark that covers half his face.

Love You to Death covers two hours on "The World According to Charlie D" during which he must both discover the long-time listener who is killing the people who trust him and attempt to come to terms with the man behind the birthmark.

Editorial Reviews

"Bowen takes a concept and crafts a story that is tightly-paced and thoroughly gripping…The characters are swiftly drawn, but they aren't clichéd, and the dialogue is witty, gritty, and contemporary…Not only will appeal to high school students who have read their way through 'Orca Soundings' and want something a bit more challenging, but I am certain that Love You to Death will find an audience amongst capable readers who want and need a rapid read. Highly Recommended."

— CM Magazine
