"Elias McCabe is having one hell of a night: He gets kidnapped at gunpoint by a professional hit man and is forced to shoot blackmail photos of a prominent politician. Things go wrong with the shoot ... very wrong. When the night is over, Elias is scared to death ... and ten thousand dollars richer. If he keeps his mouth shut. But he doesn't -- and now the hit man has targeted him for payback. As a desperate amateur in the games of death, Elias is up against a seasoned pro. As his entire life slides into the abyss, he has to stay alive by inventing new ways, moment-by-moment, to avoid, misdirect, and finally confront his ever-more-determined murderer as corpses and collateral damage stack up coast-to-coast in their wake"--

Monsters human and inhuman, from fictional psycho killers to the real-life terrorists of 9/11. Lovecraftian horrors. Extraterrestrial insects. Giant serpents. Gargoyles and ghosts. Gunfighters and assassins. The battlefield monstrosities known as Warbirds, the alien invaders called Black Widowers, and--oh, yes--a little critter named Bob. Classic monsters lurk here, too: That Creature from That Lagoon. That Thing from Another World. Monsters living, monsters dead...and in-between. David J.

Havoc swims jaded by David J Schow( Book )
2 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 135 libraries worldwide
Havoc Swims Jaded? What the hell kind of title is that? What does it mean? It sounds vaguely... threatening, doesn't it? Havoc reigns, as a Halloween Horror Night goes horribly wrong, and its featured creatures turn out to be the real thing. Meanwhile, a slimy Lovecraftian monstrosity deals with its daily routine of punching a clock to raise, well, havoc. Havoc ensues, as a time-displaced trio of friends find themselves lost in a trackless desert zone where there are no signposts up ahead at twilight. As your friendly TV remote control displays disturbing new functions. As changing your body image becomes as simple as donning a zip-up human suit. These and other dark tales of modern disturbance await the pleasure of your discomfiture. You will find, as Peter Straub said, that "Here, all of Schow's glittering weapons are sharper than ever before."
