Series: Miriam Black #3
Miriam is on the road again, having transitioned from "thief" to "killer".
Hired by a wealthy businessman, she heads down to Florida to practice the one thing she's good at, but in her vision she sees him die by another's hand and on the wall written in blood is a message just for Miriam.
Miriam not only finds a lost family member, she finds old "friends". She's left a trail of bad karma and someone has been following up or maybe, it's something. She's about to face off against something bigger than herself. I loved the build-up and the sideways pull to the plot. Just when I think I know what's going on, something new steps in.
The main antagonist is such a force that it's quite scary. It's like Wendig went into my nightmares and found that one smug, scary, figure. The one that you can never beat. The one that will take everything from you and you're helpless to stop it. It was pretty crazy and somewhat frightening to read.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
He has contributed over two million words to the roleplaying game industry, and was the developer of the popular Hunter: The Vigil game line (White Wolf Game Studios / CCP).
He, along with writing partner Lance Weiler, is a fellow of the Sundance Film Festival Screenwriter's Lab (2010). Their short film, Pandemic, will show at the Sundance Film Festival 2011, and their feature film HiM is in development with producer Ted Hope.
He's written too much. He should probably stop. Give him a wide berth, as he might be drunk and untrustworthy. He currently lives in the wilds of Pennsyltucky with a wonderful wife and two very stupid dogs.
