Count Me Out
"James has carved out a unique voice for himself and is rapidly becoming established as one of the leading hardboiled British writers."—Mystery Scene
Relentless with suspense, dark with menace, this is the gripping story of two brothers on the edge of disaster. When Scott takes part in an armored van robbery and disappears, he is pursued by the very nasty criminals who set it up-and who hope to get at him through his brother, Jet, a boxer in a traveling carnival, and his eight-year-old daughter, Stella. "Deftly combines chilling suspense and insightful characterization, leaving us both breathless and satisfied after a heart-stopping finale."—San Francisco Chronicle "[James] astonishes us with the depth, as well as the darkness, of his insights."—Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review "[A] knockout new mystery."—Publishers Weekly "An original and innovative voice."—London Daily Telegraph
