I am a good person.

I am a person who loves his family.

I am a citizen who cares about his community.

You will not vilify me!



From one of the most inimitable writers of our generation, Jack of Spades is an exquisite, psychologically complex thriller about the opposing forces within the mind of one ambitious writer, and the line between genius and madness.



Andrew J. Rush has achieved the kind of critical and commercial success most authors only dream about:  a top agent, publisher in New York, and twenty-eight mystery novels to his name.   He has a loving wife, three grown children, and is a well-known in his small New Jersey town for his charitable work.
But Andrew J. Rush is hiding a dark secret. Under the pseudonym “Jack of Spades,” he has penned another string of novels—dark, violent, masochistic tales of murder, lust and madness. 
When a court order arrives accusing him of plagiarism, Rush fears his secret may be exposed. And unbidden,  in the back of his mind, the Jack of Spades starts plotting his survival.
Joyce Carol Oats is the author of over 7o novels.
