In the dark of the parking lot I couldn't possibly have seen his eyes, but in my memory or my imagination I saw them as dark pits of rage and madness. He came up swinging, or so I thought. I never felt the knife, it slid across my body so easy it felt like nothing more than a regular punch. When a motel stakeout turns into a gun battle, Special Agent Gavin Holder stumbles across a vast and deadly gang-related conspiracy, including a secret stockpile of stolen money, drugs and jewels.
The search for the treasure hoard leads Holder into a hunt for his own past, a woman who may hold the key to the missing millions – and to Holder’s own darkest secrets. As his past closes in on him, Holder must find a way to take down the criminal gang, find the missing money, save the woman he loves... and not get caught. Or has he underestimated the magnitude of what he’s up against? A suspenseful crime thriller in the classic noir tradition.
