Joe Hunter uses the skills he perfected with the CIA and in Special Ops to solve problems. But his sojourn in Florida is recreational . . . until a beautiful, desperate woman walks into his life. Kate Piers wants Hunter to help her find her missing sister. But there are several things Hunter doesnt know . . .
Like the fact that the sister crossed a very bad man--a millionaire sadist who likes doing the wetwork himself. Or that the maniac has serious connections to the underworld . . . and runs a private army with enough firepower to blow a gaping hole through the heart of Texas.
When a violent encounter with a pair of twin killers in the Kentucky hills results in Kates capture, Hunter realizes therell be no backing down, no matter how badly the odds are stacked against him. Theres a debt to be repaid and vengeance to be had . . . and when his scorched earth campaign is over, there wont be anything left to burn.
