Life can turn on a dime against the jagged cliffs of California's Central Coast ...

Bruised, battered, but determined, Jane Innes must navigate a tangled web of deception, depravity and murder, and turn the tables on cunning swindlers. Using the art of deception, this out-of-work actress embarks on a daring caper -- her last chance to take down a deadly adversary.

Following THE SHILL and KILL THE SHILL, BEWARE THE SHILL concludes this thrilling trilogy from Shamus Award-winning author John Shepphird.

Praise for the Shill books:

"Sly, sexy and surprising, THE SHILL is a darkly comic Hollywood tale of a not-so-innocent out-of-work actress being groomed for larceny." -- Wallace Stroby, author of The Devil's Share, Shoot the Woman First, and Cold Shot to the Heart

"[THE SHILL is] a fast-paced heist story filled with colorful characters and interesting plot twists." -- S.W. Lauden, author of Crosswise

"[KILL THE SHILL is] a fast and hard ride into a con trick. Told by a writer who pulls no punches this does not disappoint." -- Richard Godwin, author of Wrong Crowd

"Hell hath no fury like an actress duped. Revenge is the motivation, deception the means to get even in this exciting crime thriller." -- Scott Adlerberg, author of Spiders and Flies and Jungle Horses, on KILL THE SHILL
