"It plays out like a TV series" - Itsabookthing2021

A decorated black ops hero that became inconvenient. Abandoned by his government and set up as the fall guy for eight long years behind bars. His wife killed. His child killed. Finding and killing the people responsible has filled his every waking thought. He’s been released and it’s time for REVENGE. The carnage can only be stopped by closing the case, and quickly.


Finding a ghost that has been trained to be invisible is hard enough, but with the fate of a man’s life resting on the outcome of another open case for DCI Steve Burt, he too has the unenviable responsibility for a life or death decisions.


People will die. How many depend on DCI Steve Burt and the team.
