The name is Allen. Ken Allen.
These days Ken Allen is a nobody.
But once upon a time, his name was Brand. Jove Brand.
Eighteen years ago, Ken Allen played the famous fictional superspy in Near Death, a movie so bad it was never meant to be seen. Since then, Ken has faded into cult obscurity, but when his celebrated successor is killed in the same ghastly fashion as the villain in Near Death, Ken is cast as the prime suspect.
The only way for Ken to clear his name is to go full method and once again play the part of Jove Brand, except this time it’s for real. As murder surrounds him, the secrets behind Near Death Ken fought to keep buried for eighteen years begin to surface.

“J. A. Crawford's debut is a pitch-perfect combination of action, mystery, and humor. ”
—Anthony Award-winning author Gigi Pandian
“Witty banter and whiz-bang plotting distinguish J. A. Crawford’s rollicking debut . . . Expertly choreographed fight sequences and spectacular set pieces amplify the story’s inherently cinematic feel, and the gratifying close will leave readers clamoring for a sequel.”
—Mystery Scene Magazine, a 2021 Editor's Pick
