Ever dream about the perfect crime?
Sean Howser and his friends have discovered it.

Sean is a rising mixed-martial arts star with a troubled past and a major gambling problem. When his debts and his life spin out of control, two of his college friends offer him a solution: act as the muscle in a foolproof international kidnapping.

The crime is shockingly simple and one hundred percent possible-no one will get hurt, and there's no way they can get caught.

Sean and his friends can't wait to start living the good life. But, when unforeseen events cause their dream crime to unravel into a nightmare, the friends soon become the subjects of an international manhunt. Worse, Sean finds himself falling for their beautiful hostage.

Can Sean redeem himself, even if it means risking his friendships, his freedom and possibly his life?

Editorial Reviews

N. Klausner
"BJORK HAS THE 'WOW' FACTOR."
Ava Bjork's 'Holding House' is a thriller with a kiss of noir. Gone is the formulaic 'solo man of mystery' hero, replaced by a luckless mixed-martial-arts fighter who interacts with a complex cast of characters from all over the globe. The plot of committing the perfect crime mixes with hot-button issues, such as extradition, human trafficking and America's down economy, culminating in an ominous and startling finale.
