Detective Conrad Voort races against time to catch an elusive serial killer, an investigation that leads him to an informal group of men whose only connection lies in their unsuccessful love lives

Blackwell North Amer
They meet every week in the dingy back room of Mackey's Steak and Ale Tavern in New York City. An informal group of men with one thing in common: They all suffer the sting of a broken heart. But soon the anger turns to hate. The rejection turns to rage. And the Broken Hearts Club spins violently out of controlexploding into murderous acts of vengeance.
Named "the richest cop in New York" by the Daily News, a man both intense and chivalrous, Detective Voort is assigned the case, determined to catch an elusive killer who is always one death ahead ... who appears to switch identities with each new victim ... and who knows how to cover his tracks with cold efficiency.
Then Voort falls victim to his own broken heart - his growing anguish threatening to compromise the investigation - as his ex-girlfriend unknowingly becomes the target of a frightening new breed of serial terror.

Ian Bainbridge started the Broken Hearts Club in order to provide men who suffer from broken hearts with the opportunity to vent their feelings. Anything goes in these Thursday night meetings, including murder. Bainbridge quickly loses control of the group as discussions of love, hate and revenge lead to horrific results. Detective Voort begins investigating these grisly murder scenes even while his own love life takes a bad turn. How many women will die before Voort discovers the truth? The pace escalates in this gruesome thriller with each homicide. Ethan Black will take you on a psychological roller coaster that will have you “dying” to get to the end of The Broken Hearts Club.
