Given his line of work in the employ of a psychotic Brooklyn crime boss, Trent finds himself on the wrong end of too many bullets. Yet each time he’s killed, he wakes a few minutes later completely healed of his wounds but with no memory of his past identity. What’s worse, each time he cheats death someone else dies in his place.

 

Sent to steal an antique box from some squatters in an abandoned warehouse near the West Side Highway, Trent soon finds himself stumbling into an age-old struggle between the forces of good and evil, revealing a secret world where dangerous magic turns people into inhuman monstrosities, where impossible creatures hide in plain sight, and where the line between the living and the dead is never quite clear. And when the mysterious box is opened, he discovers he has only twenty-four hours to save New York City from certain destruction, in Dying Is My Business by Nicholas Kaufmann.

Praise for Dying Is My Business

"Filled with characters that should appeal to urban fantasy readers—a zombified werewolf is a standout—and told with real sense of style and wit, the book should have no trouble amassing an enthusiastic readership." - Booklist

“Reinvents the urban fantasy genre.” —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling

"As we race to a truly apocalyptic conclusion you'll root for the very human protagonists of this very inhuman world." —David Wellington, author of 13 Bullets

"Whedonesque romance, inventive mythology, and badass monsters!" —Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling co-author of Father Gaetano's Puppet Catechism
