(From the publisher):
In the back room in a Baltimore office, Elizabeth Truett witnessed a killing, and walked into the middle of a fatal duel. On one side is Marco Galvin, a vicious underworld mastermind; on the other is Captain Bill Jerek, determined to bring Galvan to justice and uncover Galvan’s spy inside his own department. Jerek has another worry: how to keep Elizabeth Truett — and her husband, John — alive.
Two thousand miles away a new player enters the game. A young man claiming to be the Truett’s son has suddenly materialized. Presumed dead in Vietnam, he wants to be reunited with his parents. Or does he want to kill them?
Jerek is sure that Bryan Truett is a trap — a hitman hired by Marco Galvan. The Truetts want to believe their son is alive. Galvan’s men are turning up the pressure. In a harrowing struggle of deception and stealth, everyone is a target, everyone is a suspect, and the hunt wont’ end until someone hits the tripwire.
