Book Summary

When Alex helps rescue the passengers of an antique wooden boat the darkest hour of his life begins. Before it's over, he'll face gun smugglers, drug dealers, and a secret from his own past. In the end he'll have to make a basic, brutal choice about who he is and how far he'll go to exact revenge. The stakes have never been higher and the cost never greater.
