Praise for Dave Zeltserman:

"If there's any other young writer out there who does crime noir better than Zeltserman, I don't even want to know."—Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post

"Zeltserman's breakthrough crime novel deserves comparison with the best of James Ellroy."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Pariah is all I know of bliss and lament. Bliss at reading a superb novel and lament at knowing that Dave Zeltserman has now raised the bar so high, we're screwed."—Ken Bruen

Following from his ultra-noir trilogy—Small Crimes, Pariah, and Killer—is Outsourced, Dave Zeltserman's most commercial book to date.

A classic heist thriller pitched somewhere between Ocean's Eleven and Dog Day Afternoon, it's the story of a group of software engineers who lose their jobs due to an industry push to outsourcing. Desperate, and seeing their middle-class lives crumbling apart, they come up with a brilliant plan to use their computing skills to rob a bank. But not even a systems analyst can foresee every eventuality, so the group falls afoul of the Russian Mafia . . .

Movie rights have been sold for Outsourced, and the film will be produced by the team behind the hugely successful Resident Evil films.

Dave Zeltserman has, over the years, worked developing data communication software at some of the world's leading networking and computer companies. He lives in the Boston area with his wife Judy. His previous novels include Small Crimes (voted one of NPR's top five crime and mystery novels of 2008), Pariah, and Killer.
