Bad Actors


Paperback 425 pages         ISBN-13: ‎ 979-8322582946

First edition, published by Ballistic Books in 2024

Actor and fun, middle-aged psychopath Matt Spiller has finally made it to Hollywood. With a big movie under his belt, his life as a provincial English taxi driver is firmly in the past. As are the drug dealers he was forced to kill.


He’s landed the lead role in a TV series called Veteran Avenue, and he’s got a new girlfriend.


Life is improbably peachy.


Then people start arriving in LA.


His ex-wife is the least of his worries; she just wants to send him on a guilt trip.


His ex-agent, on the other hand, wants a chunk of his new-found wealth, and will use blackmail to get it, while a dogged detective wants to jail him for a spate of unsolved murders.


And when Spiller stumbles upon a secret that could destroy Hollywood, a hell of a lot of people want him dead.


Praise for BAD ACTORS 

“Pepper’s latest is a high-octane, pedal to the metal joyride of killer prose. A must for all fans of 90s action movies and awesome writing.”

Stephen J. Golds, author of Say Goodbye When I’m Gone
