Editorial Reviews


"Gone Girl has had a huge impact on the book world since it came out...The Obsession by T. V. LoCicero will be unknown to most people...But both are pacy,gripping narratives about love grown monstrous and out ofcontrol...fascinating portraits of gender rancour, or the amazing ability men and women have to love and loathe each other with intensity."
Victoria Best, Tales from the Reading Room

"Lots of exciting scenarios, withseveral twists/turns & a huge set of unique characters...could also makeanother great romantic mystery movie, or better yet a mini TV series...a veryeasy rating of 5 stars."--Tony Parsons, Goodreads
"I found this book to be very exciting. I was hooked by the time Ifinished the first chapter. It is very well written, fast moving andsuspenseful. A stalker who is truly deranged, a beautiful professor,lovers, and friends, what more could you ask for?"
Barbara Juhl, LibraryThing

"This novel is 'packed' with everythingfrom international news...mystery, twists, love and complication,death, a stalker, and my favorite...visuals and enjoyment reading about placesin Italy. As for the ending...nope...I didn't figure it out!"--Elyse, Goodreads

"Alfred Hitchcock would have enjoyeddirecting this thriller about stalker Stan's psychopathy and victim Lina'splunge into fear, depression, and guilt. This is a novel that you either stayup all night to read or, like me, you'll have to walk away as the anxietyescalates, only to be called back by the need to know."--Irene B., Goodreads

"The characters in this story are brilliantlyand believably drawn (some you will hope never to meet) and the story sovividly written, that although I was trying to ration myself to only read achapter at a time, every tiny part of this intense cat and mouse 'game' stayedcrystal clear in my of those rare books that can be read in sections,or devoured in a single sitting. Whatever your approach, it will be a book thatwill stay in your mind for a long, long time."--Rosemary Standeven, Amazon UK

"The Obsession
is not for the literary faint of heart...this is a powerful engaging story, one that followers of this particular genrewould most likely enjoy."
Charlene Mabie-Gamble, Literary R&R

About his "checkered past" LoCicero says:

"At one time or another I've found work as an industrial spy; a producer of concert videos for Rolling Stone's greatest singer of all time; one ofthe few male contributors to Gloria Steinem's Ms. Magazine; a writer ofan appellate brief for those convicted in one of Detroit's mostsensational drug trials; the author of a true crime book that garnered a bigger advance than a top ten best-selling American novel; a projectcoordinator/fundraiser for a humanities council; a small business owner; the writer/producer/director of numerous long-form documentaries; agolf course clerk; a college instructor who taught courses in advancedcomposition, music and poetry appreciation, introduction to philosophy,remedial English, and American Literature--all in the same term; aghostwriter; a maker of corporate/industrial videos; a member of ahighway surveying crew; a speechwriter for auto executives; a TVproducer of live event specials; an editorial writer; the creator of15-second corporate promos for the PBS series Nature; and a novelist.

"There is a sense in which that last occupation was the reason for all theothers. Almost anyone who's ever tried to make ends meet as a novelistknows what I'm talking about."
