New Release from Duane Swierczynski

Great news!

Duane Swierczynski, author of kick-ass crime novels, The Wheelman, The Blonde, Severance Package, and other great books, as well as the writer of Marvel Comics' wildly popular Cable series, has a cool-looking new release coming St. Martin's Griffin. It's called Expiration Date, and it's official release is March 30th.

Here's the setup:
Mickey Wade is a recently-unemployed journalist who lucked into a rent-free apartment—his sick grandfather’s place. The only problem: it’s in a lousy neighborhood—the one where Mickey grew up, in fact. The one he was so desperate to escape.

But now he’s back. Dead broke. And just when he thinks he’s reached rock bottom, Mickey wakes up in the past. Literally.

At first he thinks it’s a dream. All of the stores he remembered from his childhood, the cars, the rumble of the elevated train. But as he digs deeper into the past, searching for answers about the grandfather he hardly knows, Mickey meets the twelve-year-old kid who lives in the apartment below.

The kid who will grow up to someday murder Mickey’s father.

Sounds like a blast! It should be out any day everywhere, but get it at your local independent bookstore. You'll feel better about yourself.
