Naked Came the Cheesesteak: A Serial Novel
Co-edited by Tori Bond and Mitchell Sommers


The cheesesteak, Philadelphia’s culinary gift to the world, is now a murder weapon. From one end of the city to the other, someone is using cheesesteaks to kill. The police are powerless to stop it. Food trucks have become an instrument of death.  


Thirteen Philadelphia area writers have collaborated to produce a murder mystery set in the city of brotherly love. Sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and sometimes a bit scary, Naked Came the Cheesesteak is both a wild ride of a mystery, and a snapshot of today’s Philadelphia. Co-edited by Tori Bond and Mitchell Sommers.

All thirteen chapters have been posted at The ebook is due out in Spring 2016.
