Jack Swyteck isn't looking for a new client, at least not one who is homeless. But from the moment he's called to defend the man, who goes by the name Falcon, something is amiss. For one thing, Falcon comes up with the $10,000 bail–in cash. Then the body of a brutally murdered woman is found in the trunk of the abandoned car that he is living in. On the run, Falcon takes Jack's best friend, Theo, hostage.
But what Jack doesn't know is that Falcon has a much bigger agenda–and that people behind the scenes will stop at nothing to keep their dangerous secrets. Thus unfolds a riveting, lightning–paced story, as only James Grippando can tell it.
