from www.timesleader.com – First-time author Peter Conway describes his true crime book that chronicles the Dallas Township murder of Bryan Kocis [pictured] as a page turner.

Conway and published author Arthur E. Stoner worked together to write a 300-page book about the heinous murder in January 2007 and the coast-to-coast investigation.

It also goes into great detail about the pornographic lives of Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes, and their ill-fated plot to kill Kocis, whom they considered their main rival in the production of gay adult films.

Conway, of Norfolk, Va., became interested in the case when he learned Cuadra and Kerekes became the primary suspects in Kocis’ death.

“I lived in the same apartment building as they did here in Virginia a few years ago,” Conway said in a telephone interview. “I never knew them per se. I rode the elevator with them a few times and always wondered why these two young men were driving $50,000 and $75,000 cars.”

Conway created a blog that he regularly maintained about the investigation and subsequent arrests of Cuadra and Kerekes. In the year before Cuadra’s death penalty trial in March 2009, Conway said his blog had more than 200,000 visits.

Kocis owned Cobra Video, a production company that produced adult films featuring young men.

Cuadra and Kerekes were partners in their own adult production company based out of their house in Virginia Beach. Investigators said Cuadra and Kerekes killed Kocis to produce movies with Sean Lockhart, a contract modal for Cobra Video.

Conway said his interest about writing a book sparked while covering Cuadra’s trial in Luzerne County Court.
Blog to book

“It was around Harlow’s trial when I sat back and realized I had a massive amount of information about the case,” Conway said.

“The blog was a book in itself. I had all this information and there was a heavy interest about the story. Not only in Northeastern Pennsylvania but across the country.”

Conway said Stoner, an Indiana native who currently resides in Colorado, contacted him about writing a book.

“Right after Harlow’s trial ended, Andrew called me and asked if I was thinking about writing a book. He wanted to make sure I wasn’t writing it. I thought about Awriting one but I never wrote a book before. I had the information and he had the writing skills. It worked out perfectly,” Conway noted.

Stoner, a former newspaper crime reporter, has written several books in his career, including “Legacy of a Governor: The Life of Indiana’s Frank O’Bannon,” and “Notorious 92: Shocking murders in each of Indiana’s 92 counties.”

Conway, who owns his own hotel marketing company, said the writing came easy to him considering his knowledge and vast amounts of documents he had about the case.

He purchased most of the trial transcript and interviewed witnesses, several of the investigators and Luzerne County Assistant District Attorneys Michael Melnick and Shannon Crake.

Stoner interviewed Kerekes in state prison.

A jury convicted Cuadra of first-degree murder after a two week trial. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole after the jury was unable to reach a verdict on imposing the death penalty.

Several weeks before Cuadra’s trial, Kerekes pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison.

“I believe people will misunderstand the book by seeing its cover,” Conway said.

“It really is a true crime book and it’s not written in a salacious way or anything like that. The book features the trial and the people involved in the trial. I still read it every now and then; it keeps you wanting to read more.”

The book is titled, “Cobra Killer, Gay Porn, Murder and the Manhunt to Bring the Killers to Justice.” It is published by Magnus Books in New York City, N.Y., and is scheduled to be released in February 2012.

Preordering the book began last week on amazon.com and borders.com.

Conway said he expects to do several book signings in the area after the book is released.
