TAMPA, Fla. - Aug. 4, 2016 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that THE SHORT LIST by FRANK ZAFIRO and ERIC BEETNER is published this week in trade paperback and ebook formats. This is the second crime novel in the Bricks and Cam Job series.

"What a thrill to welcome back Bricks and Cam," said Eric Campbell, publisher of Down & Out Books. "And I'm sure readers will be excited to know that a third book in this series is already being planned. I can hardly wait to read it myself."


When Bricks and Cam strike out on their own in the aftermath of their bloody showdown with the Giordano family, not everything goes as planned. Boring, straight jobs aren't satisfying, and their first successful solo hit is a messy one. Worse yet, someone has revenge on their mind.

Before they know what is happening, Cam is kidnapped and Bricks is attacked by an old enemy.

Cam uses his wits as he struggles to escape his captors while Bricks frantically searches for her partner in crime. Both hack away at the mystery of who is bent upon vengeance against them. There is a short list in play, and both Cam and Bricks are on it.

But they're not going to stand still and take being attacked. Not by anyone. They're going to fight back. They're making a list of their own, and it's even shorter than the one they're on …

Praise for THE SHORT LIST …

"Bricks and Cam are two of the most resourceful and likable paid killers one is ever likely to meet. The suspense and action keep the reader transfixed to the end." — Publishers Weekly
