                          Product Description-As The Twig Is Bent
 Someone is killing women in the Chelsea district of Manhattan - but, who? The only clues: a signature heart carved into each
 victim's breast (inside, the initials "J.C." and those of the deceased); copies of the New Testament (with underlined passages
  referring to infidelity); and fingerprints of a juvenile arrested in the 1960s. On the case is Matt Davis, a plodding but effective
 NYPD homicide detective who is addicted to fly fishing - and chocolate. Helping him is his one-quarter Mohawk Indian partner,
 Chris Freitag, to whom he owes a long-standing debt of gratitude. Complicating things is Rita Valdez, a female cop looking for
  "true love," and not too particular about where she finds it. "As the Twig is Bent" is an explosive thriller that rips the lid off the
      sordid underbelly of Internet chat rooms, and propels the reader on a no-holds-barred journey toward its bone-chilling
                   conclusion. CAUTION: Contains graphic sexual material that is inappropriate for some readers.

Sexually Graphic/Explicit Debut Novel, June 21, 2009 By Author D. B. Pacini "Author & Youth Writing M... (California)
This review is from: As The Twig Is Bent (Paperback) Before May 26, 2009 I had never heard of author Joe Perrone, Jr. or of his
novel, AS THE TWIG IS BENT. On that morning, I checked the AMAZON customer review listings for my novel, and Perrone
had posted a supportive review. I secured his E-mail address and sent him an E-mail thanking him. One E-mail led to another,
and I decided to order AS THE TWIG IS BENT. I just finished reading it.I've read countless murder/crime mysteries. AS THE
TWIG IS BENT is a desperately intense who-done-it chocked full of fast-paced, nerve-racking suspense. I read the first half of
the book the day I received it, and with regret, had to read the second half the following day. It's a book you can read in one day
if you have a day you can devote to reading. That's the way I recommend reading it because it is a tough book to put
down.Since this is a debut novel, I feel it is imperative that I compliment Perrone on his seemingly effortless ability to thread
continuity from the first page...

Brann "Don Brann" (North Carolina)
   This review is from: As The Twig Is Bent (Paperback) Here is a thriller suited to today's computer generation. Author Joe
Perrone, Jr. has crafted a first rate mystery, set in New York City's Chelsea district, that features a serial killer who uses Internet
chat rooms to locate his victims. NYPD homicide detective, Matt Davis, along with his one-quarter Mohawk Indian partner, Chris
Frietag, must stop the madness before its too late. With more plot twists and turns than a roller coaster, As The Twig Is Bent is a
ride worth taking. Don't miss this one!

Grice, March 27, 2011 By Gwyneth Rice "JAR" (Lawton, Oklahoma)
This review is from: As The Twig Is Bent (Paperback) I don't read very many murder mysteries but I have to admit "As the Twig
is Bent" is one of the most thrilling, grab you and drag you in, mysteries I have ever read. I very much appreciated the full
character developments and felt like I knew each person involved and was tagging along with these real police detectives. The
chilling descriptions of violence against the killer's victims was thankfully balanced by the quiet and loving personal life of the
main character, Captain Matt Davis and his wife. This book was one that was hard to put down and I was very sorry when it
ended. I have already purchased the sequel and am ready to start reading again.
