Amos Williams Launches New Thriller
by BWW News Desk - Mar 8, 2017

Quynlin Lee, an idealistic young police officer, has finally achieved his ultimate goal: becoming a detective in the Canton Police Department. As this new novel by Dog Ear Publishing reveals, however, his joy in his success is tempered with the heartbreak of a horrifying new case. There's a serial killer loose in Canton known as the Candy Man Killer, and he's targeting children. Unfortunately, the detective's badge didn't shield Quynlin's partner, Buster Falino, from the horror of their latest case. Buster's young daughter was the killer's most recent victim, and the tragedy was so crushing it sent Buster into early retirement and voluntary commitment to a mental health center. Left to solve the case without his mentor, Quynlin is working against the clock to discover who's behind the monstrous murders. Assisted by his new partner, Conrad Bernard, and by visions from his clairvoyant but troubled sister, Amy Sue, can Quynlin overcome the murderer before his own daughter falls prey to the killer, or will The Chase result in Quynlin's destruction? 'Lay Them Down to Sleep' is a pulse-pounding thriller that will leave readers on the edge of their seats as they follow Quynlin on his path to track the Candy Man Killer. Quynlin's commitment to his job and his determination to stop the killer before another child falls victim is palpable and creates a very credible and terrifying story. In writing the book, Williams tapped into the emotions he still feels after his brother's murder when they were young. He has used those feelings to create well-rounded and interesting characters. This is his first novel.

BWW Review: DRACULA at SHAW FESTIVAL
by Michael Rabice - Aug 8, 2017

STRONG ACTING IN DRACULA DESPITE TEDIOUS SCRIPT The story of Bram Stoker's DRACULA has been told long enough since the novel's release in 1897 that most everyone is familiar with the famous Prince of Darkness. Numerous films have been made, as early as the silent version NOSFERATU, and a stage version with Frank Langella was lauded nearly 30 years ago on Broadway. The Shaw Festival is presenting a stage version by Poet Laureate of Glasgow, Liz Lochhead. First given in 1985 in Scotland, this overly long stage adaptation is too bogged down in literary detail, and judicious trimming of the Victorian epic seemed necessary to make it palatable for modern day audiences.
