Death Makes Great TV.

Frankie Percival is cashing in her chips. To save her brother from financial ruin, Frankie—a single stage performer and mentalist who never made it big—agrees to be assassinated on the most popular television show on the planet: Death Warrant. Once she signs her life away, her memory is wiped clean of the agreement, leaving her with no idea she will soon be killed spectacularly for global entertainment.

After years of working in low-rent theaters, Frankie prepares for the biggest performance of her life as her Death Warrant assassin closes in on her. Every person she encounters could be her killer. Every day could be her last.

She could be a star, if only she lives that long.


“Subtle yet effective world-building, deftly drawn characters, and a dynamite premise elevate Johnston’s latest, which is, by turns, a speculative thriller, a decidedly nontraditional murder mystery, and a love letter to all forms of stage magic.” Mystery Scene Magazine

“[A] deeply satisfying tale that compellingly depicted both the magic of stagecraft and the power of good people coming together to affect meaningful change.” Criminal Element

“Holding a very special appeal for readers with an interest in action/adventure technothrillers and dystopian fiction, Death Warrant by Bryan Johnston is a simply riveting read with all manner of unexpected plot twists and turns.” Midwest Book Review
