Pre Pub Book Buzz: The Second Life of Nick Mason by Steve Hamilton

Soooooo after a rocky, rocky beginning, Steve Hamilton's The Second Life of Nick Mason will finally see a release this May. I, and I'm sure many others, have been waiting anxiously for this day to come, let me tell you! Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

Nick Mason has already spent five years inside a maximum security prison when an offer comes that will grant his release twenty years early. He accepts -- but the deal comes with a terrible price.

Now, back on the streets, Nick Mason has a new house, a new car, money to burn, and a beautiful roommate. He’s returned to society, but he's still a prisoner. Whenever his cell phone rings, day or night, Nick must answer it and follow whatever order he is given. It’s the deal he made with Darius Cole, a criminal mastermind serving a double-life term who runs an empire from his prison cell.

Forced to commit increasingly more dangerous crimes, hunted by the relentless detective who put him behind bars, and desperate to go straight and rebuild his life with his daughter and ex-wife, Nick will ultimately have to risk everything—his family, his sanity, and even his life—to finally break free.

Hamilton is the author of the long-running Alex McKnight series (ten books) as well as the standalones Night Work and (my introduction to him) The Lock Artist. The Second Life of Nick Mason marks the start of a brand-spanking new series that's already garnering praise from the likes of Harlan Coben, Stephen King, Michael Connolly, Lee Child, and Don Winslow. I think that means we can expect good things :)
