Publisher's Summary

The first of three explosive pulp thrillers arriving back-to-back from cult crime-fiction sensation and Marvel Comics scribe Duane Swierczynski.
Charlie Hardie, an ex-cop still reeling from the revenge killing of his former partner's entire family, fears one thing above all else: that he'll suffer the same fate. Languishing in self-imposed exile, Hardie has become a glorified house sitter. His latest gig comes replete with an illegally squatting B-movie actress who rants about hit men who specialize in making deaths look like accidents. Unfortunately, it's the real deal. Hardie finds himself squared off against a small army of the most lethal men in the world: The Accident People.
It's nothing personal - the girl just happens to be the next name on their list. For Hardie, though, it's intensely personal. He's not about to let more innocent people die. Not on his watch.


What the Critics Say

"Swierczynski steps on the gas early in this pulse-pounding contemporary thriller and doesn't let up... an unforgettable climax... the sequel's appearance won't be too soon for many readers." (Publishers Weekly)
"Brilliant... one hell of a roller coaster read. Mr. Swierczynski writes like Elmore Leonard on adrenaline and speed." (New York Journal of Books)
"A white-hot nuclear explosion." (Joe R. Lansdale, Edgar Award-winning author)

Just plain great - couldn't get enough.

First prose book I'd tried of Swierczynski and first time I'd heard Pete Larkin do a reading. Both were spectacular. Larkins up there with Scott Brick for favorite reader. I enjoy Nelson DeMille, Jeffrey Deaver and Brian Haig and Fun and Games ranks right up there as one my favorites.
Enjoyed it so much I'm going to go out and buy a print copy so I can lend it to friends. You'll be glad you picked this book, Swierczynski delivers!
