Panic by Peter Melillo

Panic by Peter Melillo is now available in e-book format!

Arthur Fredrickson is back from Iraq, convicted of the brutal murder of seventeen year old Ali Hussein. He has no recollection of removing the clip from Ali's AK-47 and then pumping twelve rounds into his body while they were on sentry duty. The lawyer Arthur’s parents hired to defend him wants to use the Homosexual Panic Defense, if Arthur would rescind his confession of murder under threat of torture.

Arthur surmises his exposure to the "gay bomb" pheromones while handling specially marked artillery shells had suddenly worn off and caused him to go into a blind rage at the gay sex he was having with Ali. But Ahmed, Ali’s best friend since early childhood, implies the murder was caused by Ali wanting Arthur to stop the romantic aspect of their guard duty sex. But then, Ahmed and Ali also had a history before the war began.

  1. Gay bomb pheromones. What a wonderfful idea. This sounds like a very intriguing read, and one with a bit of a difference.
