I just recently finished reading Duane Swierczynski's new novel, "FUN & GAMES", the first of a trilogy published by Mulholland Books. The second book "HELL & GONE", will be released in October of 2011 and the final conclusion, "POINT & SHOOT", will be out in March of 2012. Now, I know what most of you are thinking, you hate series novels because you have to wait so long in between books. But, that's the genius of Duane Swierczynski you see, he's releasing a trilogy that will be available before the end of the Mayan calender in December of 2012, so you can read these without worries of never finishing.You'll be done BEFORE the world ends. I think it's pretty thoughtful on Duane's part. And, all kidding aside, it's a terrific read and you won't want to put it down once you start. It's the story of an ex-cop,Charlie Hardie, who has left that career for a life of house sitting. Unfortunately the house he's watching in "Fun & Games" has a stow away who is being hunted by "The Accident People", a group who make people disappear and leave no traces, only the appearance of an accident. Charlie's life is suddenly at risk as is those from his previous life. Caught between the girl and the people who want to make her disappear, Charlie's in for a hell of a ride. This is one series you won't want to miss. Duane is the author of "The Wheelman", "The Blonde" and my personal favorite "Severance Package". If you haven't read Duane before, what are you waiting for? Start with "Fun & Games" and then go read his back list, you'll thank me later.
