EYESHOT a thriller by Taylor Adams published by Joffe Books, London
Joffe Books is delighted to announce the publication of this outstanding suspense thriller by a debut novelist from Washington state.
“Eyeshot had me intrigued from the moment I read the pitch Taylor sent me last year. The beautifully honed writing accentuates the demonic evil of the wisecracking sniper who pins down the couple in open desert. I loved the precision and humor with which Taylor describes the couple’s rocky relationship. It really is one of those books you can’t put down.”
James and Elle Eversman are a young couple travelling through the Mojave desert on their way to a new life. When their car mysteriously breaks down they are stranded in the middle of nowhere without much water and no cell-phone reception.
A mile away a deadly sniper has them in his cross-hairs. They are pinned down behind their broken-down car, surrounded by open ground in all directions. There’s nowhere to run and no one to help them. How can they possibly survive?
With relentless tension, razor-sharp prose, and a surprising dose of dark humor, EYESHOT will keep you gripped till its stunning conclusion.
"Writing Eyeshot was fun because the story spans roughly six hours - basically one long, intensifying action sequence. My goal was to write a novel with the controlled urgency of a movie, hopefully compelling the reader to finish my book in a single sitting."

An independent publishing company based in the creative hub of Shoreditch, London, close to the digital and artistic communities that inspire it. Jasper Joffe, a contemporary artist, well-known for projects such as The Free Art Fair and The Sale of a Lifetime, decided to found a digital-only publishing company to release outstanding fiction and make the most of the new opportunities which are transforming the world of books.
“The age of Kindle means that I can bring great fiction out fast and with everything from cover, to blurb, to marketing done in-house. I’ve applied some of the knowledge I gained as a successful artist to the publishing world. It’s a really exciting moment to be doing this, because for the first time in history, a writer can send me a book and within months, if everything goes well, be selling their book and having thousands of people all over the world reading it!” Jasper Joffe
