"If Mark Zaslove plays his cards right, I think he could be on the level of Lee Child’s extensive Jack Reacher Series, which has been in publication for well over a decade now. I’m excited to find out how many novels Zaslove is going to expand the series into as there’s no definite end in sight. And hopefully the second one isn’t too far behind!"

"As a potential first installment of a new story about a new kind of hero, Death and Taxes is promising. Douglas and his Bang Squad will appeal to lovers of Clancy as well as those with a fetish for gumshoes. There’s always room for a fresh political thriller or mystery series, Zaslove has written one many readers will find raucous and compelling."

Death and Taxes is a fantastic read. Completely captivating. Made me lose track of where I was. It’s the one book I read over and over and over again. In fact, it’s the only book I have. Ever since I was sent inside for one to three on tax fraud, no one in my family comes to visit. My friends don’t know me. I got this book in trade for, well, I won’t say what I had to do for my cellmate, but this book made it all worthwhile. Two thumbs up, and careful while you shower.”

“I read this book while waiting to testify against Leona during her court case. I couldn’t put it down. It’s just like the real world, only you don’t get fired after you take the stand.”

“I read this book while waiting to testify against Leona during her court case. I couldn’t put it down. It’s just like the real world, only you don’t get fired after you take the stand.”

—Al Capone’s dog, Lucky


Death and Taxes is utterly outrageous, exciting, a real page-turner. I hope it sells a million. Two million. And then I hope Mr. Zaslove pays his taxes. Lots and lots of taxes. But he better watch his deductions, as we’ll be on top of his returns like ticks on Al Capone’s dog. The writer fudges one line wrong, and we’ll blister him with fines. With interest! Man, I can’t wait for him to file….”
