Louis Gerhani is a hard drinking, heartbroken, newspaper reporter for the Washington Gazette. He is disinterested in life after his fiancÃ© left him for a doctor, and his final assignment in order to retain his job is to write a full story on Lolita Croome, an 110 year old, philosophical woman, and the oldest living person in the country, who resides in a nursing home in Hagerstown Maryland.
As he reluctantly begins the assignment, he uncovers a 90 year old unsolved triple murder of three young women, that Lolita lived through, and a full diary from Lolita from 1923, the year of the murders.
Consumed with solving the murders, turning out the story of a lifetime, and using the diary, Lou begins to wake a sleeping giant that someone is clearly trying to keep unsolved at all costs.
Major violence erupts in this quiet town as Lou tries desperately to stay alive, finish the story, solve the murders, fall in love, and learn from a very wise, old woman.
Defying Death In Hagerstown is the page turner on the century

John Paul Carinci's amazing story inspired and amazing!
John Paul Carinci is a masterful writer. Whether reading his non-fiction self-help books, or reading his fiction, you marvel what an amazing man writes these works. To read his books is a pleasure and obtain his insight. In Defying Death at Hagerstown, you see his touch in this intriguing book.
The amazing part-Mr. Carinci bought a diary off of eBay, and the genus of this story. Louis Gerhani is a washed out writer working for the famed Washington Gazette. His life has taken a bad turn and he is heartbroken and trying to drink his problems away.
He is given another chance by his editor - to write a feature article about a 110 year old woman in Hagerstown, Lolita Croome.
She is a spry beautiful soul who shows Louis her journal from her youth. There he finds during her twenties, there was a serial murder, killing young women. He starts asking questions, and starts to get threats and real dangerous situations. Someone doesn't
want these murders come to the limelight. Where there's smoke, there is a BIG fire still smoldering.
Defying Death in Hagerstown is not only a story of a sweet little old lady - it is a murder mystery- BUT it is the redemption of a good man who helps Lolita, and by doing so, saves himself.
Layer on layer, Mr. Carinci takes us on a journey of mystery and a story of one man's reaching out and by doing so,changes his entire world.
This is a tour de force for John Paul Carinci! Any book of his you learn. This book will open your heart.
