Reviews

A special meeting, an announcement from his boss, and poisonous champagne has Jamie DeBroux making his escape from his office building. Swierczynski (The Blonde) is editor in chief of Philadelphia City Paper. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

"[A] kinetic story, which never stops moving...turbocharged entertainment." --Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times"Swierczynski writes a brand of thriller whose pacing forces us to reexamine our casual use of the word breakneck...This is essentially one long action scene that begs for the next Tarantino to direct. But if that sounds like faint praise, it isn't: there are both enough cliche killers and comedy to make us raise two thumbs up. If you want your thrillers to be, well, thrilling, pop a big bowl of corn--you won't leave your seat until the end." --Booklist"The best word to describe Swierczynski's latest thriller is frenetic, and even that is likely an understatement." --Library Journal"Fans of crime fiction will find Swierczynski's latest offering to be a guilty pleasure of unparalleled magnitude. With pedal-to-the-metal pacing, characters who appear to be meek cubicle dwellers a la 'Office Space' but are really cold-blooded, black-ops killers, and enough gut-churning violence to make a Quentin Tarantino movie look like a Disney musical replete with singing candlesticks and teapots, the dark, twisted energy in this novel is palpable." --The Chicago Tribune"A hot shot of adrenaline straight to the neural plexus." --Joe Schreiber, author of Chasing the Dead and Eat the Dark
