New Milford author pens new novel

NEW MILFORD — Local author Scott Leddy’s latest book is a novel called “All the King’s Men.”

Taken from the book’s synopsis, which was written by Leddy:

Tatiana Botnari’s life is hard in Moldova. She struggles to financially support her young son in a country falling into disrepair. When her clairvoyant dreams show visions of a serial madman preying on young children and the police department scoff at her claims, she seeks the help of former FBI Behaviorist and serial profiler, Raymond Fischer. Fischer, self-exiled, fled the US to Soroca after the death of his daughter. A bottle in his fist and a grudge on his shoulder, he joins the search for the elusive Bogeyman of Bessarabia. The pair team up with local reporter, Aleksandr Radu, and the manhunt soon becomes the largest in Moldova’s history.

Can Fischer suppress his inner demons?

Will Tatiana’s horrifying visions cause her to lose her mind?

Let the hunt begin…

The novel, published in January, centers around a young mother whose “clairvoyant dreams show visions of a serial madman preying on young children” and a former FBI behaviorist and profiler and “their search for the elusive Bogeyman of Bessarabia,” the author’s announcement said. They are joined by a reporter, “and the manhunt soon becomes the largest in Moldova’s history.”

The book, which is available on Kindle and at Amazon, contains adult material (violence and graphic details.)
