Outskirts Author’s New Cop Thriller Mixes Martial Arts, High-Tech Heists

St. Paul, MN, September 27, 2008 --(PR.com)-- LAPD detectives Michael Darts and Mark Anderson are back in the action-packed novel Life and Money Heist, author Andy Schoepp’s highly anticipated sequel to The Martial Arts Murders.

Now available through the Outskirts Press store (www.outskirtspress.com/store.php), Life and Money Heist is a sexy police thriller with a high-tech twist and even more bone-crushing martial arts fight scenes than its predecessor.

Deemed heroes by the news media after cracking the sensational Martial Arts Murders, Detectives Darts and Anderson have little time to rest on their laurels—not when they’re faced with solving a series of crimes that has Southern California panicked. Now, the pair faces their most important case yet: a string of brazen robberies, featuring unknown suspects armed to the teeth with illegal automatic weapons, high-powered explosives and martial arts weapons. But the scariest part is witness reports of robotic voices and mysterious messages left at the scenes. And when one of the thieves is killed, an autopsy reveals something even these veteran sleuths aren’t prepared for: a USB port in the back of his head. But are they machines? Or something even more sinister?

Suddenly, the detectives are in a race against time to apprehend the gang’s seemingly untouchable mastermind and head off citywide chaos as the streets of L.A. are turned into a war zone. Before it’s over, Anderson’s life will hang in the balance as Darts finds himself on a fatal collision course with a man who may hold the answers to death itself.

With more twists than LA’s 110 freeway, Life and Money Heist continues the Martial Arts Murders tradition for leaving readers guessing until the very last page. Through it all, Schoepp, an accomplished martial artist himself, expertly crafts martial arts fight scenes with a breathless intensity. Life and Money Heist is also chock full of enough high-tech intrigue, sexy love scenes and good old-fashioned detective work to satisfy the most dedicated reader of police thrillers.
