Kensington will re-release "Eye Contact", as well as Flight Dreams (5/00) and Body Language (7/00), so that the entire Mark Manning series will be available as it continues to be published by St. Martin's Press."Eye Contact" is a fiercely unpredictable, adrenaline-rushed story of murder, erotic illusion and a devastating crime that reveals the mysteries of the human heart. It begins as a simple assignment for Chicago Journal reporter Mark Manning. He's been hired to replace colleague Cliff Nolan on a top story: renowned astrophysicist Pavo Zarnik claims to have discovered a tenth planet.To the skeptical reporter, there is no story because there is no proof. But soon, Manning makes some startling discoveries. Nolan's body is found with a bullet hole in his back, and the last interview with Zarnik is missing. Now, the story is no longer a matter of metaphysics, but of murder. And to complicate matters, Manning's young, new assistant is haunting is days and dreams. Together, they're determined to find the truth about Nolan's death. . .and the inevitable, damning piece of evidence that the killer will do anything to destroy -- even it means committing murder again.

US Kirkus Review » Since Chicago Journal science editor Cliff Nolan never filed his story on Dr. Pavo Zarnik's claim to have discovered a tenth planet out beyond Pluto, investigative reporter Mark Manning is ordered to cobble together an article. Quite a story, if true - only Mark, fresh from his discovery of Cliff's dead body, is convinced the story's bogus and Zarnik's an impostor. (The clues that give Zarnik away, in fact, occasion the cleverest bit of detection here.) Weighted down by the assistant he's been assigned, adoring cub reporter David Bosch - who knows that Mark is gay and indicates that he'd come out of the closet to spend the night with him - Mark, determined to be faithful to his loftmate, architect Neil Waite, goes in search of the story, and promptly runs into a gigantic conspiracy that links Chicago's impending millennial blowout, Celebration 2000, to the gay-baiting Christian Family Crusade, the Pentagon, and somebody with very deep pockets indeed. En route to the movielike final conflagration, which reduces the lead villain to "hissing meat," Mark will have time for an elaborate party - evidently a trademark of this series (Flight Dreams, 1997) - and some torrid coupling, in his dreams and out. The conspiracy is the stuff of standard paranoia, and Mr. Hissing Meat's identity pretty obvious. But the scenes of gay domestic life, which show a welcome sensitivity, could go far toward helping this gay mystery enlarge, or even escape, its niche. (Kirkus Reviews)
