'Lyall at his fleet and fearful best' Chicago Tribune
When Martin Fenwick – rich, respected, loved – is murdered, his bodyguard James Card goes on the hunt for his killers. His only clue, a small package wrapped in plain brown paper, will send Card on a relentless manhunt across international borders and into the clutches of death.
Young, beautiful, and very much alive, Lois Fenwick is oddly without sorrow over her husband's death. David Fenwick, the surviving son, is determined to find his father's murderer, and will risk his own life to find them.
Card is a man used to action, but now he must unearth the deadly secret that sent his boss on a rendezvous with a bullet.
