Well plotted and crisply written, with great characterization, this is one to look for.”--Brendan DuBois, coauthor with James Patterson of the New York Times best seller THE SUMMER HOUSE "Noir suspense at its best! Private eyes, hit men, globe-trotting, and characters you don't know whether you can trust or not. Fans of James Ellroy, Dennis Lehane, and Fredrick Forsyth will love BOLT!"--Matthew Farrell, best-selling author of WHAT HAVE YOU DONE "A potent shot of contemporary LA noir that will have readers hooked from page one. Fans of Dennis Lehane and James Ellroy will love FORCE OF IMPACT." "A fast-paced detective novel, enhanced by exceptional characters and a striking ending."--Kirkus Reviews on FORCE OF IMPACT "A deftly crafted roller coaster of a ride for the reader, Bryan Cassiday's novel, BOLT, is a truly riveting read from cover to cover."--Midwest Book Review "Fast-paced and intriguing, Bryan Cassiday's BOLT is the type of novel that demands to be read in one sitting . . . The plot is perfectly flawless."--Readers' Favorite Five-star review "These stories feature an engaging surreal atmosphere, almost Borges-ian in tone. Neither the protagonist nor the reader is quite sure what is going on. Each has to interpret the shifting reality for himself."--The Horror Zine on COMES A CHOPPER "Cassiday blends thoughtful suspense and pulse-pounding terror to deliver a novel with both bite and creeping dread."--David Dunwoody on SANCTUARY IN STEEL "Written with the epic scope of WORLD WAR Z and infused with the gritty spook works derring-do of a Robert Ludlum spy thriller, SANCTUARY IN STEEL is full of zombie mayhem through and through."--Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of DEAD CITY "SANCTUARY IN STEEL made me feel like I did the first time I watched Romero. Fresh, exciting and engaging like any outbreak story should be."--Iain McKinnon, author of DOMAIN OF THE DEAD Bryan Cassiday graduated from UCLA with a BA degree in English and did post-graduate studies at the USC Graduate School of Cinema--Film Production.
