Description

An epic novel of gangland intrigue from 'one of crime fiction's new stars' [Sunday Telegraph]When Catherine Ducane disappears in the heart of New Orleans, the local cops react rapidly - she is the daughter of the Governor of Louisiana after all.

But the case gets very strange, very quickly. Her bodyguard turns up horribly mutilated in the trunk of a beautiful vintage car and when her kidnapper calls he doesn't want money: he wants time alone with Ray Hartmann, who works for a Washington-based organised crime task force. All Ray wants to do is get this over with quickly, and go home to try and repair his broken marriage.

Instead he must listen to the mysterious kidnapper, an elderly Cuban named Ernesto Perez, who wants to tell him his life story.

It's only when he realises that Ernesto has been a brutal hitman for the Mob since the 1950s that things start to come together.

But by the time the pieces fall into place, it's already too late...
