More Worn Out Expressions

Ladies and Gents. Do NOT use clich├ęs/worn-out expressions in your blurbs/queries/synopses. Examples I've found in the last few days:
1. Haunted by
2. Race against time
3. Stop at nothing
4. Gritty streets
5. Lightning-paced
6. Eye for trouble
7. Hopes are dashed
8. Everything she holds dear
9. A sweeping story
10. Caught in the middle
Don't TELL! Show.
To Be Continued.
