They say everyone has a novel in them. Luca had five, until they were stolen from him. Luca Pope would normally be pleased to see his novels on bookstore shelves, especially if it were his name on the covers. Five novels bearing five different author names, and he has no idea how it happened. Unemployed and with nothing better to do than to entertain thoughts of violent retribution, Luca sets out to track down and corner the plagiarists, to extract answers and confessions - if they'd just stay alive long enough to oblige. Urged on by a sense of righteous outrage and an inner voice named Hodges, Luca departs his career of salaried apathy to pursue the life which has been brazenly stolen from him: successful novelist ... or failing that, serial killer. Punchline is a black comedy about plagiarism, paranoia, and one man's poorly-judged attempts to out the bastards who stole his books. Two wrongs don't make a right ... but five should do it.show more
