Such great heights

Congratulations to Greg Rucka! PATRIOT ACTS, his newest Atticus Kodiak thriller, gets a *Starred review* in this week's issue of PW.

"At the start of Rucka’s electrifying sixth thriller featuring bodyguard Atticus Kodiak (after 2001’s Critical Space), Atticus is ready to settle down after years of chasing the deadly female assassin known as Drama and finally breaking her away from “The Ten”—a group of cold-blooded killers operating around the globe. But when he and Drama, now known as Alena, are ambushed and left for dead, Atticus knows his troubles are far from over. Suddenly, the two find themselves the target of a massive manhunt after being mistakenly identified as Ten members. From a tiny village on the Black Sea to the inner sanctum of the Pentagon, Atticus and Alena race to clear their names and punish those responsible for the shocking death of a close friend. Rucka expertly blends intense shoot-’em up scenes with biting political commentary as Atticus and Alena uncover just how high the conspiracy reaches within the U.S. government. Kodiak fans who’ve waited a long time for this installment will find it exceeds all expectations."

We're also pleased to announce that audio rights for PATRIOT ACTS and UNTITLED have been sold to Tara Gelsomino at BBC Audiobooks America.

Refill those glasses and order another round. THE CLEANUP by Sean Doolittle has been nominated for a 2007 Barry Award! It's no wonder this "noir gem" has been touted by critics.
