Publisher's Summary

Hollywood location scout John Pellam thought the scenic backwater town of Maddox, Missouri, would be the perfect site for an upcoming Bonnie and Clyde-style film. But after real bullets leave two people dead and one cop paralyzed, he's more sought after than the Barrow Gang.

Pellam had unwittingly wandered onto the crime scene just minutes before the brutal hits. Now the feds and local police want him to talk. Mob enforcers want him silenced. And a mysterious blonde just wants him.

Trapped in a town full of sinister secrets and deadly deceptions, Pellam fears that death will imitate art, as the film shoot -- and his life -- race toward a breathtakingly bloody climax.

Good characters, wandering plot

I enjoyed alot of this book, principally because of great characters. And my criticism is based more on my inability to concentrate or stay awake. Perhaps I better give this another try....

The thing is Nesbo, Alders-Olsen, Stephen King's crime triology and especially AW Gray's works have set an impossibly high standard. Especially when I listen to so many new novels.
