Smile PARALLAX - new thriller from author Jon F. Merz

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that my latest thriller PARALLAX has debuted as an ebook and is now available! Here's the ol' elevator pitch...

What happens when two professional assassins - one a Mafia hitman and the other a former German terrorist - kill at exactly the same moment in time? For Ernst Stahl and Frank Jolino the result is a psychic bond that slowly blossoms in each man's mind, enabling them to see into the other's world. Frank Jolino doesn't like what he sees, especially when he realizes that Stahl is headed to his home turf of Boston to kill a scientist who may hold the key to solving the world's deadliest diseases. But for Stahl, there's no other option. Virtually bankrupt and with his son in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant, he's got little choice but to take the assignment. Jolino has other ideas. On the run from his crime syndicate for refusing to kill his ex-girlfriend-turned-government-informant, Jolino sets a plan in motion that will bring the two men face-to-face and gun-to-gun...with no guarantees either will survive.

To celebrate the release, I'm also running an insane contest (details here: http://jonfmerz.wordpress.com) that includes free books and two trips to the set of the TV series I'm producing, THE FIXER (based on my Lawson Vampire novels). A sample chapter is posted on my blog as well.

I hope you check it out!

Thanks,
Jon

New Reviews for PARALLAX

Just got several review for PARALLAX I wanted to share with you all...

5.0 out of 5 stars Go Get This Book!!!!, April 3, 2009
By GeeMcBee "Write Me In" (USA) - See all my reviews
This book grabs you from the first few paragraphs. It's gritty, authentic and the action is well paced. Wise guys, FBI agents, mob hits, bombs, great sex - this book has it all. But wait - there's more - quite a few twists and turns along the way that I did not see coming and thoroughly enjoyed. You are brought into two distinct worlds with two unique characters and immediately find yourself cheering for both. Forget about the fact that they are assassins; Jon F. Merz does an amazing job of making you care about them as people, humanizing them. This book has a little bit of everything. Mob action, romance, thriller, paranormal and even humor peppered in just in case you needed to be reminded of the author's talent. This book is pure fun. I could not put it down and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced, thrill ride of a book. My only disappointment came when the book was finished. I'd like to see a sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read, March 27, 2009
By Debra G. Morris "Deberito" (Pittsburgh) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
The editorial review pretty much tells you what the book is about. What it doesn't say is that this book holds your interest and is full of good dialog and a very likable character who happens to be an assassin. It moved right along and kept my attention till the very end. I can't wait to read another book by Jon F. Merz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book, Suspenseful all the way through, April 3, 2009
By John H. Teekell - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
Like other Jon F. Merz books, very suspenseful and good. A different aspect of the powers of the universe and the mind of two different assassins. Shows how far the love of a father will go for his child. The conscience of another. What would you do if you can see what someone else want's to do, and it wrong or right. Would you stop it, would you let it happen. Read what happens. It will keep you at the edge of your seat.
