Waiting on Wednesday- "Dying is My Business" by Nicholas Kaufmann

Waiting on Wednesday is a blog meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming book releases.

This week's WoW selection is:

Dying Is My Business by Nicholas Kaufmann
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Date: October 8, 2013
Pages: 384

Given his line of work in the employ of a psychotic Brooklyn crime boss, Trent finds himself on the wrong end of too many bullets. Yet each time he’s killed, he wakes a few minutes later completely healed of his wounds but with no memory of his past identity. What’s worse, each time he cheats death someone else dies in his place.

Sent to steal an antique box from some squatters in an abandoned warehouse near the West Side Highway, Trent soon finds himself stumbling into an age-old struggle between the forces of good and evil, revealing a secret world where dangerous magic turns people into inhuman monstrosities, where impossible creatures hide in plain sight, and where the line between the living and the dead is never quite clear. And when the mysterious box is opened, he discovers he has only twenty-four hours to save New York City from certain destruction.

What are you waiting on this week?

Sounds very highlanderish, although with the loss of memory twist that is kind of cool.

Bob Milne said...

Nice pick - I grabbed the ARC of this a couple of weeks ago. Looking forward to the read.
