The Death Freak

(The first book in the Eddie Mancuso and Vasily Borgneff series)
A novel by

"A suavely persuasive, anti-Establishment thriller with the bitter aftertaste of Campari and vodka. A clever, cynical, and compelling novel."
- Time Magazine

Eddie Mancuso - the CIA's hard-boiled expert in Unusual Killing Devices (UKDs), is tired of promoting death. VASILY BORGNEFF - the Russian UKD man, kills and never leaves a trace, but he yearns to live like other men. CHALICE - the stunning blonde who shares these two strange geniuses, brings them together for a bizarre meeting in Mexico. They realize they can't just quit. Survival is the goal . . . and the implacable KGB and CIA bosses soon face their own deadly weapons, turned against them by their creators.

"With its ingenious pseudoscience and kinky sex, "The Death Freak" is a really entertaining lightweight novel."
- New York Times Book Review

"Genuinely exciting ... ingenious ... brilliant."
- Publishers Weekly

"Some of the most bizarre attacks and counter attacks this side of "Star Wars." And by the way, the technology makes James Bond look like a street punk armed with a zipgun. Some of the death descriptions are so detailed and perilous there's a warning at the front of the book."
- Dallas Times-Herald
