Six years after helping Wendy Harper disappear, her ex-boyfriend and former business partner, Eric Fuller, is framed for her presumed murder in order to make her return, and Jack Till must find her before assassins Paul and Sylvie Turner can ensure Wendy’s permanent silence.
Six years ago, Jack Till helped Wendy Harper disappear. But now her ex-boyfriend and former business partner, Eric Fuller, is being framed for her presumed murder in an effort to smoke her out, and Till must find her before tango-dancing assassins Paul and Sylvie Turner do. The Turners are merely hired to do a job, though, and prefer to remain anonymous. When they find that a middleman has let the true employer know their identities, finishing the job is no longer enough. Their fee just went up. And now they must double-cross the man who wants Wendy dead before he can double-cross them – if their jealousy and cold-blooded calculations don’t result in a fatal lovers’ quarrel first. With masterful plotting and unnerving psychological insight, Perry delivers another mesmerizing thrill ride.
