deadbeatGuy Adams is the contributor for this week’s Take Five, a regular series where we ask authors and editors to share five facts about their latest books. Adams is the author of Deadbeat – Makes You Stronger, available now:

Max and Tom are old, old friends, who used to be actors. Tom now owns a jazz nightclub called Deadbeat which, as well as being their source of income, is also something of an in-joke.
