(From the publisher):
In the very centre of the man's lead-coloured forehead, just above his eyebrows, a single carpenter's nail protruded from his skull. There was no mess; it was very neatly done. One end of a tiny black string was tied to the nail, and to the other end of the string was tied a large red ant...
It was obvious that this wasn't just another murder. The bizarre presence of the ant and the evidence of systematic and brutal torture established that. But nothing suggested to Detective Stuart Haydon that it was to be the start of a four-day spiral of relentless violence.
As he uncovers a grim trail of corruption and fanaticism, he is led ever closer to the death squads of Los Tecos, Mexico's largest neo-fascist movement. And to a full-scale underworld war on the quiet streets of Houston.
