Miriam is on the road again, having transitioned from "thief" - to "killer". Hired by a wealthy businessman, she heads down to Florida to practice the one thing she's good at, but in her vision she sees him die by another's hand and on the wall written in blood is a message just for Miriam.
About the Author
Chuck Wendig is a novelist, a screenwriter, game designer, and all-around freelance penmonkey. He has contributed over two million words to the roleplaying game industry, and was the developer of the popular Hunter: The Vigil game line (White Wolf Game Studios / CCP). He, along with writing partner Lance Weiler, is a fellow of the Sundance Film Festival Screenwriter's Lab (2010). Their short film, Pandemic, showed at the Sundance Film Festival 2011, and their feature film HiM is in development with producers Ted Hope and Anne Carey. They both wrote the digital transmedia drama Collapsus, which was nominated for an International Digital Emmy and a Games 4 Change award. He is the writer behind two e-books: the short story collection Irregular Creatures and a collection of essays on the subject of writing, Confessions of a Freelance Penmonkey. Chuck's Abaddon tie-in novel Double Dead will be out in November, 2011, and his original fiction debut Blackbirds will be published in May 2012 by Angry Robot. He's written too much. He should probably stop. Give him a wide berth, as he might be drunk and untrustworthy. He currently lives in the wilds of Pennsyltucky with wife, dog, and newborn progeny. He is represented by Stacia Decker of the Donald Maass Literary Agency. You can find him at his website, terribleminds, where he is busy dispensing dubious writing advice and unstable publishing wisdom.
"Visceral and often brutal - vibrates with emotional rawness that helps to paint a bleak, unrelenting picture of life on the edge." Publishers Weekly "fast, ferocious, sharp as a switchblade and fucking fantastic" Lauren Beukes, author of Zoo City and The Shining Girls "Wendig's surefooted prose means that this ride is well worth sticking your thumb out for." - SFX Magazine "If you're looking for a sassy, hard-boiled thriller with a paranormal slant, Wendig has established himself as the go-to man." - The Guardian
