The Janus Run
By (author) Douglas Skelton
When Coleman Lang finds his girlfriend Gina murdered in his New York City apartment, he thinks nothing could be worse… until he becomes the prime suspect. Desperate to uncover the truth and clear his name, Coleman teams up with an unlikely ally, a former wise guy with a very personal interest in the case. But with a deranged Italian hitman, an intuitive cop, two US Marshals, and his crazy ex-wife all on his tail, trying to piece together Gina’s murky past without dredging up his own seems impossible. Even worse, the closer Coleman gets to Gina’s killer, the harder it is to evade the clutches of the mysterious anddeadly organisation known only as Janus – from which he’d long since believed himself free. Plot twists, gripping suspense and dashes of humour will keep you guessing until the explosive climax of this brilliant new thriller by an award-winning author of true crime as well as hard-boiled fiction.
