My Picks Carousel

For a good time...

Pick up The Blonde. She plays dirty and brings her own cuffs. Satisfied customers write:

"Swierczynski’s The Wheel Man (2005) was an adrenaline-charged thrill ride through the streets of Philadelphia, and this one is, too. But where Wheel Man offered an inventive take on a traditional crime scenario—the heist gone wrong—The Blonde serves up more high--concept fare....If the premise sounds hard to swallow, it’s worth taking the bait. This is another fast, funny, and action-packed outing from a writer who, fortunately for us, doesn’t seem to know how to slow down."

"Imagine an episode of 24 written by Robin Cook, and you've got a pretty good idea of Swierczynski's (The Wheelman) second novel. Two parts adrenaline rush, one part medical thriller, this twisted story starts with a bang and rarely slows down....Full of offbeat characters, excruciatingly reckless twists, and sardonic humor, this fun ride shows great promise for a rising author. Recommended for most thriller and crime fiction collections."
