Dantes' Inferno
A Dr. Sylvia Strange Novel
By Sarah Lovett

     A bombing at the Getty Museum kills a gifted teacher and a student, Jason Redding. Jason's uncle, Edmond Sweetwater, a famed terrorist tracker, believes John Dantes is the bomber and is instrumental in his capture.

      Forensic psychologist Dr. Sylvia Strange is called to Los Angeles to interview Dantes. She is still upset by the suicide of one of her patients and is particularly vulnerable to Dantes' machinations.

      The wily Dantes admits to a number of bombings, but claims he is innocent of the one at the Getty Museum. Though here have been a series of bombings while Dantes is incarcerated, the authorities believe he knows who the bomber is and hope that he will divulge the identification in his interview with Strange.

      Dr. Strange is convinced of Dantes' innocence and that he is being made a pawn by an unknown predator. It all becomes a contest of wills between Strange and Dantes over the mysterious "M," who is setting out to destroy the infrastructure of Los Angeles.

      The journey into the dark underground world of Los Angeles is graphic and truly terrifying. The characters are developed in depth, giving insight into motive and mood.

     The suspense builds from the first introduction of Dantes and "M", and the reader never knows who will be successful or when. Woven into the story are references to the literary Dante's Inferno, comparing Dante's Hell with the scenario "M" plans to create for Los Angeles.

       This is truly a gripping story that takes the reader on an exhilarating ride.
