The White Van by Patrick Hoffman
My favorite debut of 2014 is now out in paperback. A “functioning” drug addict gets manipulated into being a front for a bank robber, but takes off before she hands over the money. Russian criminals and a crooked cop then pursue her on a mad chase through San Francisco. Hoffman delivers a relentless, gritty thriller with a cast of characters way out of their depth. Out today! You can find copies of The White Van on our shelves and via bookpeople.com.
The Killing Kind by Chris F Holm
Holm introduces us to Michael Hendricks, a hitman who takes out other hitman. His latest job steers him toward an erratic client, a skilled and unscrupulous adversary, and a confrontation with the love of his life. The action makes you feel like you are in the middle of a John Woo film and the characters bring more surprises and emotion to the table than you may be prepared for. Out today!
