Just before dawn on the South China Sea, pirates open fire on a small smuggling yacht. Their target is a bag of uncut sapphires worth millions. But an unexpected treasure sends everything sideways: Within minutes, two pirates are dead, leaving the third to claim the mysterious windfall for himself. The boss, Angela, isn’t about to let that happen. She calls in a fixer known as the Ghostman, who has no real name, no address, and no fingerprints—given the right motivation, he can make serious problems vanish. In order to recover the loot, they’ll have to face down a crime boss, a hit man, and a conspiracy bigger—and more dangerous—than they ever imagined…and hopefully, they’ll do a better job than last time.
In a daring operation, two crooks-for-hire rob an Atlantic City casino. But their heist goes horribly wrong, and only one of them makes it out alive. Now he’s on the run with half a million dollars vacuum-packed into a bundle the size of a briefcase. Little does he know it’s rigged with explosives.
Almost immediately, an expert fixer named Jack is in cross-country pursuit. With less than foty-eight hours to recover the money, clean up the mess, and—for god’s sake—try not to botch the job like he did last time….
