Overview

There is no code Elroy Coffin can’t break, nothing he can’t hack, no safe he can’t get into. But for the past two years, he’s been incarcerated in a maximum-security hellhole after a job gone bad, driven to near-madness by the revelation of his beloved wife’s murder.

Now a powerful and mysterious visitor who calls herself a “concerned citizen” offers Elroy his freedom if he’ll do another job, and sweetens the deal with proof that his wife might still be alive. All Elroy has to do is hack into one of the most complicated and deadliest security grids in the world—clear and simple instructions for the best in the business. Or so he thinks.

Quickly drawn into the epicenter of a secret, brutal war between criminal masterminds, Elroy is forced to run for his life through a rapid-fire labyrinth of deception, betrayal, and intrigue— where no one is to be trusted and every fight could be his last . . . and the real truth hidden beneath the myriad levels of treachery may be too shocking to comprehend. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The pace never slackens in screenwriter Romano’s superior debut thriller. Two years after hacker genius Elroy Coffin survived a gunshot to the head that’s affected his memory, he receives an unexpected visitor at the Texas prison where he’s serving time for attempted murder and multiple counts of armed robbery. Wealthy and well-connected Jayne Jenison tells him his beloved wife, Toni, whom he believed dead, is still alive. Jenison promises to get Coffin released within two weeks if he’ll agree to help track down her grown daughter, who’s being held somewhere along with Toni. Extreme violence follows Coffin like a shadow once he’s out of prison, but the gunplay and torture always advance the complex, multilayered story line. Few will anticipate the plot twists or the extremely satisfying resolution. Romano doesn’t pull his punches, killing off characters the reader cares about, but again, the deaths serve a larger purpose and aren’t presented merely for shock value. Agent: David Hale Smith, Inkwell Management. (Sept.)
Booklist
Unshakable suspense….Romano relies on sharp instincts and scary-smart strategy over chance to give his hero nine lives, and he layers in plenty of depth beyond expertly drawn tech-thriller aspects….A must read for followers of Andrew Vachss and Charlie Huston.”
From the Publisher
“Gripping…[a] complex multifaceted novel starring hard-ass people battling for lead dog position in what will be shortlisted as one of the top thrillers of the year.”

    One of the best thrillers I've read in years

    There is not another author writing subversive fun stuff like this! Strap in and hang on. Elroy Coffin is a bad-ass.
