You think YOU had a killer workday. . .
Get ready for the FASTEST thriller of the summer!
Each morning in his 45th floor executive office, David Elliot savors the quiet

For the rest of the day, he will be trapped in his midtown office building, and

He has 24 hours to find out why. . .
In Vertical Run, you can escape into a world on fast forward, a drama
that plays out with electrifying intensity. No one who reads this book will
