Featured Book

Book Cover The Janus Run by Douglas Skelton (20 September 2018). When Coleman Lang finds his girlfriend Gina dead 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 hits the streets. But there's a deranged Italian hitman, an intuitive cop, two US Marshals, his ex-wife and the mysterious organisation known only as Janus on his tail. And trying to piece together Gina's murky past without dredging up his own seems impossible.
