The Editors

Cleveland author Richard Montanari has chosen the "city of brotherly love" as the backdrop for his newest tales of killers, corpses and cops. The Feb. 15 hardback release of "The Rosary Girls" will also mark Montanari's move to Ballantine Books, a division of Random House Publishing, where he is penning a new series set in the homicide division of the Philadelphia Police Department. Montanari made his fiction debut in 1995, with the release of "Deviant Way," followed by "The Violet Hour" and "Kiss of Evil," three books based in Cleveland, two of them revolving around the character John Paris, a detective in the Cleveland police department's homicide unit. See a theme developing here? "To be writing under the Random House umbrella — home to some of the greatest writers of all time — is a dream come true," Montanari says of his new deal. He'd better celebrate fast and get back to his computer. A sequel to "The Rosary Girls" is slated to hit bookshelves in February 2006.
