Article excerpt

If you wait until Nov. 8 to buy a paperback copy of "One Shot," you will find Tom Cruise's photo on the cover.

The Bantam Dell Publishing Group will publish a movie tie-in edition of the Lee Child novel on Nov. 8 to coincide with the Dec. 21 release of the movie now known as "Jack Reacher." The photo on the book cover shows a close-up of the left side of Mr. Cruise's face, complete with a small bloody cut.

All completed videos will be shown Nov. 7 at Belvedere's Ultra Dive in Lawrenceville and Nov. 8 at AVA Lounge in East Liberty. See for details.
