The Episode

"Richard Pollak's first novel, The Episode, is unforgettable. . . a witty, brisk and often moving story of murder in New York City, of a tenacious reporter who finally learns what happened, and of the little-known disease, epilepsy, which shadows his life. This is writing of a high order." Thomas Powers, author of The Man Who Kept the Secrets

"A pip. . . an unusual novel of corruption and sudden death." New York Daily News

"Mr. Pollak's extensive knowledge of epilepsy gives the book many of its best moments." The Wall Street Journal

"Compelling, harrowing, top-flight suspense!" People
