New from Down & Out Books: WAKING UP THE DEVIL by Chris Miller

TAMPA, Fla. - Aug. 21, 2023 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that WAKING UP THE DEVIL, a crime thriller by Chris Miller, has been published on August 21, 2023 in trade paperback and ebook formats.


A master killer is forced back into the business, and it's personal.

Cade Samson has less than a day to take out his old partner before his former crime boss murders his brother. The problem is, the Feds are all over it.

On the run from the police and the crime family after turning the tables on them, Cade sets in motion a plan to get his brother back and bring down all those who stand in his way of the peaceful life he's come to appreciate. Heads will roll, lives will be cut short, and the Devil will have his due.

After all, when you dance with the Devil, you don't get to pick the tune.

Advance praise for WAKING UP THE DEVIL …

"Chris Miller is one of the best kept secrets in crime fiction. But he won't be a secret anymore once readers get ahold of this masterful new offering." —Andy Rausch, author of Hell To Pay

"A knuckleduster of a racing-against-the-clock thriller, with loads of balls to the wall action. Miller's Cade Samson makes most tough-guy protagonists look as menacing as Dylan Mulvaney slurping on a Bud Light. To quote from the book: 'Forget rock and roll; it's time for heavy metal.'" —Michael Bruce Blackwell, author of Wildlife on the Serengeti
