In this thrilling detective novel, retired investigator Thomas Horton returns to a cold case he’s been thinking about for ten years. When he begins to dig deeper he again runs afoul of the dangerous vigilante named Xander Drew, who has returned in an attempt to recruit Horton into his one-man war against mob boss Stephen Fields.
In a dangerous game of quid-pro-quo, Xander attempts to help Horton solve the long-cold case… which has suddenly become active again. Can Xander and Horton catch this devious and patient killer before he goes into hiding again?
“It made for an interesting perspective of Xander as he continues to grow and change from someone hell bent on finding and punishing a single person, to someone who is willing to pause their own mission to help with the mission of another. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am hoping that Horton keeps showing up as the series continues. I don’t know how I’m going to be able to wait for the next one to come out.” – Kelly, GoodReads reader.
