    This unique story opens with the sudden death of Frank Meyer, his family and their au pair. They are killed by a professional crew of assassins who invade their home. Frank had it all; a beautiful wife, two sons and a successful business.

    What we soon learn is that Frank, in his younger days, was a professional mercenary. His command leader was Joe Pike. When the police tell Joe that Frank was involved with crooked men, Joe denies their supposition and sets out to find the murder of Frank and his family.

    There are an amazing number of twists and turns that make perfect sense. As Joe gets more involved, he has to determine who is lying ... and why. Elvis Cole is still in the sidekick role and he adds some levity to the tragic and awful spiral of cutthroat criminality and death.

    I could not put the book aside; it grabs the reader from the outset and doesn't let go. A great yarn.
