About the Book
A gripping, paranoic thriller about an unwilling participant in the Witness Protection Program, from star Hollywood screenwriter Daniel Pyne.
Jay Johnson is a decent guy, yet quietly lost: He has a girlfriend he can't commit to, a job that bores him, and a traumatic incident in his past that he can't quite remember or forget. When he awakens one night in his Los Angeles apartment convinced he can hear an intruder, he chalks it up to bad dreams. Hours later, after being abducted on a Red Line Metro train and whisked away against his will, Jay's certain they --- whoever they are --- have targeted the wrong person. But when he comes to in an undisclosed location, monitored by federal agents who believe he is hiding highly classified information (about which he knows nothing), Jay can no longer deny the surreal and nightmarish scenario unfolding around him.
Relegated to Catalina Island in a neighborhood populated by other protected witnesses and unable to return to his former life, Jay begins to investigate the strange series of events that led him to this odd new existence. Repressed memories and unreliable information add to the mystery of FIFTY MICE --- just why was Jay taken, and what does he know? Puzzling and frightening, this thrilling novel by acclaimed screenwriter Daniel Pyne is poised for breakout success.
