STAGED BY PROFESSIONALS: You have no idea.

Ex-cop Charlie Hardie's latest job is guarding an isolated mansion in LA's Hollywood Hills. But it comes with an unwanted guest - a D-list actress who says she's being hunted by professional hitmen.

Charlie thinks she's just high and paranoid.

But he's wrong.

The killers are real.
They've tracked her to the house.
And they're not letting anyone out alive.

Fun and Games Reviews

Swierczynski steps on the gas early in this pulse-pounding contemporary thriller, the first of a trilogy, and doesn't let up...The sequel's appearance won't be too soon for many readers. * Publishers Weekly Starred Review *
A high octane, cinematic delight that uses film techniques of fast pace and quick cuts and highly visual scenes to rivet the reader to their chair. I loved it * Joe R. Lansdale *
A hip, dead smart novel, an entertaining start to what promises to be an addictive action trilogy * Australian *
Packs enough indestructible villains to satisfy a "Die Hard" fan, and each chapter ends on a cliffhanger...Written in deadpan sentences and funny as can be, this first installment of a projected trilogy left me greedy for more. * Bloomberg *
Cool, suspenseful, tragic, and funny as hell...I haven't had this much fun reading in a long time. * Sara Gran, author of Dope and Come Closer *
A furiously paced tale that cries out to be filmed * Canberra Times *
Reads like a Quentin Tarantino movie on speed, full of high-octane action, flying by at a breakneck pace, not for the faint of heart, but also with plenty of humor * CNN.com *
