Night of Violence

Jabberwocky Literary Agency, Inc.

Do not disturb...

Art Durbin has seen it all. As the owner of The Hideaway Motel, on an isolated stretch of highway in New Mexico, he regularly gets all types of characters passing through. Like the traveling salesman on his way to Albuquerque, the adulterous couple sneaking away for a quick tryst, or the weary family on a road trip. This night seems to be no different, until a dangerous stranger arrives.

Lew Cutter‘s made a lot of bad decisions in his criminal career. Working for low-level mobster, Sam Garner was one, having an affair with Garner’s girl was another. But tonight Cutter really did it—stealing $50,000 from a Las Vegas extortion job, and killing one of Garner’s lackeys in the process. Now, two ruthless hit men are hot on Cutter’s heels, descending on the lonely motel, eager to do whatever it takes to recover their money and their man.

A quiet desert evening rapidly spirals into a waking nightmare for the guests of The Hideaway. Though strangers when they checked in, they’ll need each other to survive the night. For better or worse, by dawn, their lives will be irrevocably tangled.
