Debut Dagger 2023


James Pierson


Armageddon/Deep Impact meets the heist thriller, Heat.

When pregnant astronomer Sacha Barrett discovers an asteroid the size of Texas on a collision course with earth, she contacts her estranged family of failed bank robbers and petty crooks to pull off the heist of the apocalypse. The spoils? Not gold or cash, but keys to a bunker that offers one slim chance of surviving the end of life on earth.
