We are excited to celebrate Lake Luzerne’s very own summer resident, Matt Witten, and his new novel – The Necklace.
The Necklace is a fast-paced thriller starring an unlikely heroine: Susan Lentigo, a waitress from Lake Luzerne fighting to prove that the man who’s about to be executed for killing her daughter is actually innocent – and the real killer is still free. As the clock ticks down, she takes on the FBI in a heart-pounding crusade for justice.
Matt Witten is a TV writer, novelist, playwright and screenwriter who has written for many TV shows including House, Pretty Little Liars, Law & Order, CSI: Miami, Medium, JAG, The Glades, Homicide, Judging Amy, and Women’s Murder Club. His latest thriller novel, The Necklace, is set in Lake Luzerne. It will come out from Oceanview Publishing this September, and has been optioned for film by Leonardo DiCaprio. Matt has also written four mystery novels set in Saratoga Spring that were published by Signet: Breakfast at Madeline’s, Grand Delusion, Strange Bedfellows, and The Killing Bee. He has been nominated for two Edgars and an Emmy, and his debut novel won the Malice Domestic Award. Matt lived in Saratoga for ten years, and he’s been spending the last thirty summers in Lake Luzerne.
