Blurb.........<br/>Mulholland Books presents... FUN AND GAMES<br/><br/>NUMBER OF ACCIDENTAL DEATHS PER YEAR<br/>By suffocation: 3,300<br/>By poisoning: 8,600<br/><br/>STAGED BY PROFESSIONALS: You have no idea.<br/><br/>Ex-cop Charlie Hardie's latest job is guarding an isolated mansion in LA's Hollywood Hills. But it comes with an unwanted guest - a D-list actress who says she's being hunted by professional hitmen.<br/><br/>Charlie thinks she's just high and paranoid.<br/><br/>But he's wrong.<br/><br/>The killers are real.<br/>They've tracked her to the house. <br/>And they're not letting anyone out alive. <br/><br/>The first in a trilogy starring Charlie Hardie. Fast, frenetic, funny, plenty of action, likeable main characters, likeable supporting characters, slight stretch of the imagination to "buy" the plot - but isn't all fiction just made up words? Fantastic interplay between Hardie and Mann, the main adversary.<br/><br/>I read it in just over a day, which would have been quicker if life hadn't interfered.<br/>The most enjoyable of his books to date, having previously read Secret Dead Men, The Blonde, The Wheelman and Severance Package.<br/><br/>I'll keep an eye out for the series follow-ons as this was a real blast.<br/><br/>4 from 5<br/><br/>Bought new last year from somewhere or other, Buzzard Books in town maybe.

I guess I've seen too many action movies or read to many thrillers. Nothing wrong with this one more a comment on my reading and viewing habits really
