When the latest in a series of dead bodies turns up in the Chicago River, newspaper reporter Alex Chapa and Police Lieutenant Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels reluctantly join forces.

Thriller writers J.A. Konrath (Whiskey Sour, Fuzzy Navel, Cherry Bomb) and Henry Perez (Killing Red) and their series characters have teamed up to create FLOATERS, a mystery tale that combines humor with thrills.

Included in this 30,000 word collection are J.A. Konrath's LAST REQUEST, a Phineas Trout story, and FAMILIAR PLACES, a story by Henry Perez about hit man who has seen better days.

This collection also includes a conversation between the authors and excerpts from each of their novels, SHOT OF TEQUILA, by J.A. Konrath, and KILLING RED by Henry Perez.

Praise for JA Konrath's thriller Fuzzy Navel:

"This gripping novel is an adrenalin rush." — Library Journal

"Fuzzy Navel is Konrath at his best – a hilariously heartstopping thriller." — Linda Fairstein

"This book moves so fast it was like having the words fired into my head by a machine gun." — Crimespree

Praise for Henry Perez's thriller Killing Red

"Intense, lightning-paced, brilliantly executed, a novel that demands to be read in one sitting." — James Rollins

"Fascinating! Killing Red is not for the faint of heart. It kept me turning pages long into the night.” — Lisa Jackson

“Killing Red is an intense, smart read, and Alex Chapa is a character of flesh and blood. A terrific debut—bravo!” — Marcus Sakey

"Killing Red heralds a meteoric debut crafted with surgical skill! Not since Thomas Harris burst onto the scene with Black Sunday has a debut thriller come along that sinks its hooks this deep into a reader from page one. Here's a public service message to all thriller lovers: Do not start this book at night if you want to get any sleep, because you will be up until you cross the finish line – pulse racing, skin sweaty – but happy as hell you decided to go on this magnificent thrill ride. Highest recommendation!" — Jay Bonansinga

"Taut, provocative and unforgettable. Henry Perez's Killing Red is the one debut novel you need to read this year." — Tasha Alexander
