Gustavo Florentinabout this book: The Schwarzschild Radius was on my mind for over a decade before I wrote it. A few years after I graduated The Bronx High School of Science in NY, I got the idea to write a novel in which brilliant high school freshmen solve a mystery with their reasoning abilities. Eventually, the age of the protagonist went from 14 to 18 and Rachel, the amateur sleuth in the story, goes searching for her vanished sister instead of her murdered friend's killer.The book went through 33 drafts and I hope none of my future books have to undergo so many iterations before being published.
Rachel, an 18-year-old Columbia University student descends into the netherworld of runaways and predators to find her sister, Olivia, who has suddenly disappeared. After getting a job in a strip joint where Olivia worked, then doing private shows in the homes of rich clients, Rachel discovers that Olivia has been abducted by a killer who auctions the deaths of young girls in an eBay of agony. As she closes in on the killer who has taken Olivia, Rachel becomes his next target.
