From the Publisher
A banker with a devil-may-care attitude--and a smile that conceals a devilish impulse. A literary agent who is quick to anger--and much too easy to manipulate. A mechanic with a desperate need to be liked by everyone--no matter the cost. And a psychologist who keeps all their secrets--especially his own . . .

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 control--exploding 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.

In this sleek, stylish, sexy thriller, Ethan Black gives us a chilling novel of psychological suspense that races like an adrenaline rush through surprising twists of plot--and ends with a shattering, shocking climax. Breaking up may be hard to do. With The Broken Hearts Club it''s fatal

A psychologist has brought together a group of men to meet once a week at a tavern in New York. They all suffer from a broken heart. There is a banker, a literary agent and a mechanic. As they continue to talk they get more and more angry and then this turns to hate and finally to rage. The rejection fuels the rage and then it spins out of control.

Detective Voort, the richest cop in New York, with his partner, Mickie is assigned the case to catch the killer. But the killer seems to change identities at will and knows how to cover his tracks.

Voort is dating Camilla, who has just dumped him. Will he be dragged into this vortex of violence?

This is not the best-written book but has an interesting plot and is definitely thrilling. Note: This is a sexually graphic book.

Dr. Ian Bainbridge, a psychologist, has started the Broken Hearts Club for men trying to get over being dumped by their girlfriends. There's the mechanic, the banker, the literary agent, and the man that never shows up. The swap stories of how broken hearted they are and their grief sometimes turns to anger. One night, that anger builds up to the point where the banker visits his ex girlfriend and murders her in a blind rage. In comes Detective Voort, who also has recently had his heart broken.

This book wasn't the best written novel and there were parts at the beginning that made absolutely no sense until the end of the book. The twist was an interesting one but the ending was too cliche for my tastes. It's also quite graphic in parts and I felt like this didn't add anything to the novel, but rather that the author was trying to shock the reader and then didn't follow through on this by making the entire book this way.
