Ryan Rossetti and Jake Thomas were the two Major League-bound rivals on their high school baseball team, until Ryan hurt his pitching arm and landed a $10 dollar an hour life as a house painter. Lucky Jake made it all the way, and he and his $10 million signing bonus are heading back for a publicity-motivated homecoming weekend. But he’s got a nasty surprise in store: Ryan is involved in an intense, addictive relationship with Jake’s fiancé Christina, who now faces a choice between love in a Brooklyn tenement or a heartless marriage on Easy Street.
None of the three have any idea what’s about to play out in the streets they once all called home. Lights out is vintage Jason Starr, a razor sharp crime novel that brilliantly combines biting social satire, explosive suspense, and honest, revealing human drama.
