About A Double Down
Alex Cole was the King of Hollywood.
He had it all. Good looks, fame, fortune and the power that comes with being one of the most famous actors in the world. Alex was adored by audiences worldwide, and despite losing his parents in a horrific plane crash when he was only a teen, he managed to avoid all the pitfalls of young stardom and grew to become a true American idol.
Then, after an attempt on his life, Alex’s team decide that he needs more protection. While trying to keep the actor safe, his team unknowingly plunges Alex into a nightmare of murderous intrigue where the actor has to fight for his very survival.
Praise for Double Down
This book takes off right away and does not slow down. Alex is developed well early on which makes it easy for the reader to get invested in him as a character. The narrative moves fast and does a good job of keeping the reader interested. I would highly recommend this to fans of thrillers and mysteries. Amazon Review
This was one of best surprises of the year, I have a great time with it and I can safely assure you that you must read this masterpiece. I did something I rarely do after I finish a story, I start from the beginning right after I reach the end of it. Amazon Review

About the Author
C.J. Axlerod is a pen-name of Chris Coppel, who (under his own name) also writes horror stories and general fiction. There are details of all his books on his web page here: https://www.chriscoppel.com/
“I was raised the son of a writer. My father wrote plays, films and novels. He was successful and suffered constant wanderlust. I was born in America when he was there writing Vertigo for Alfred Hitchcock. I give that familial insight so that you can understand that I had the genes, I just needed to find my footing and get up the nerve to put pen to paper (or to be more accurate…open my laptop). Many would say that having a successful parent should make it easier to follow their path under the protective shadow of their parent’s success. Not so!
Writing is difficult. Writing in the hopes that you will be read and your works appreciated is terrifying. In my case, the fear of failure kept my ideas and stories buried in a back closet within my brain. It is only now as I enter the latter part of my existence that I have been able to calm the fear and share my stories with those who may wish to read them.”
