Inside the chest given to him from the executor of Quinn’s will, Sean finds a key and explicit instructions that the contents are for his eyes only. Once Sean discovers where the key fits, he finds another letter, this one stating that Quinn wants a closed case reopened. And when Sean looks into the case, he is shocked by who the victim was.
As Sean and his wife, Sara, uncover the clues, they are led from the back rooms of Quinn’s corporation to the streets of New York City, but they will stop at nothing to get to the truth.

One hit man who’s back for revenge.
One detective who’s not going down without a fight.
It’s been ten months since Detective Madison Knight almost died at the hands of Russian Mafia hit man Constantine Romanov. She hasn’t seen hide nor hair of him since he escaped police custody and fled to Russia soon after his arrest, except now her latest murder investigation gives her reason to believe he’s back in town. Seeing as the victim is the man who killed her grandfather, her perspective may be a little skewed, but with the MO smacking of Constantine and the victim’s connections to the mob, she finds it hard to be objective.

Madison vows to do whatever it takes to save them, but as the hours race by, the body count rises. And the stakes only get higher when Madison’s sister, Chelsea, goes missing.
Now, Madison’s only play is to take Chelsea’s disappearance for what it really means: Constantine is calling Madison out for one final showdown. And they won’t both survive…
