(From the publisher):
Handsome, charismatic Charlie Marsh was a ladies' man, a con man, a thief - but never a hero, until he rescued hostages during a riot at the state penetentiary. Suddenly he was free and a national celebrity, and life was good again. Then a U.S. congressman was murdered and Charlie ran...all the way to Batanga, Africa, a country run by insane dictator Jean-Claude Baptiste.
Now twelve years later, Charlie is coming home to face the music.
Criminal lawyer Amanda Jaffe has her work cut out for her. Death Row seems a near certainty for her infamous new client...if he lives that long. The head of Batanga's secret police is after him, and there's a killer in the shadows who will stop at nothing to keep the truth about a decade-old assassination buried forever.
