Description

DISCOVER A NEW HERO...

'Very, very good. Reacher is keeping an eye on this guy' LEE CHILD

'Nothing short of brilliant. It grabs you from page one and simply doesn't let go' JEFFERY DEAVER

Clyde Barr has been on the run for sixteen years. Now he's back in the Colorado wilderness, hoping for some peace and quiet.

Then Clyde receives a frantic phone call for help from his sister Jen. But the line goes dead. She's been taken.

Clyde doesn't know where Jen is. He doesn't know who has her. He doesn't know how much time he has. All he knows is that nothing short of dying will stop him from saving her...

'Clyde Barr - remember the name, because he could just become as famous as Lee Child's anti-hero Jack Reacher. Utterly compelling from the first page...for my money, it will become a worldwide sensation' DAILY MAIL

'Erik Storey's writing is exceptional. This is a splendid debut, harsh and gripping throughout' THE TIMES

'...the best debut thriller of the year - and don't be surprised if before long Erik Storey ranks among the giants of the genre' THE WASHINGTON TIMES

'...the best debut thriller of the year - and don't be surprised if before long Erik Storey ranks among the giants of the genre' * THE WASHINGTON TIMES * 'Erik Storey's writing is exceptional. This is a splendid debut, harsh and gripping throughout' * THE TIMES * 'Clyde Barr - remember the name, because he could just become as famous as Lee Child's anti-hero Jack Reacher. Utterly compelling from the first page...for my money, it will become a worldwide sensation' * Daily Mail * 'Nothing Short of Dying may be the year's best debut thriller. Fans of Jack Reacher will love Clyde Barr, a dark, classic hero who can hold his own against any evil' -- WILLIAM KENT KRUEGER 'Paints the mountains and gorges of Western Colorado red with blood. Clyde Barr - a modern day mountain man crossed with ex-mercenary - is not a man to be messed with' -- C.J. BOX 'Storey captures the American landscape in beautifully written passages that contrast starkly with the ugliness of some very bad hombres' -- NELSON DEMILLE 'A singular new talent! Storey's Nothing Short of Dying is nothing short of brilliant. It grabs you from page one and simply doesn't let go. This man is a born storyteller!' -- JEFFERY DEAVER 'Very, very good. It's all here. Reacher is keeping an eye on this guy' -- LEE CHILD
