Genre: Crime fiction thriller
Former mob “troubleshooter” Kevin Markinson returns for a thrilling game of cat and mouse in Book 3 of the Kevin Markinson series. Markinson has finally settled back into prison life, hoping to serve out his sentence and return home to his family. Unfortunately for Markinson, fate has other plans. Mob boss Jerry Remora has decided that it’s time for his ex-wife, Lucy Remora, to go… preferably before she can testify against him in a federal racketeering trial. When he orders his right-hand man to hire the best hitman in the business to take her out, a plan is hatched to break Duke Markinson out of prison to do the job—whether he wants to or not.
U.S. Marshal Sally Barnard has tracked Markinson down before, and when she learns that he has escaped from prison again, she immediately volunteers to bring him in. Lucy Remora also hears about Duke’s escape and panics, running away from protective custody to escape what she knows will be certain death from Markinson’s gun. In the cold and snow of a New Hampshire winter, the deadly chase begins. Can reluctant hitman Markinson find a way to get out of the contract and avoid a return trip to prison?
After finding out her ex-husband’s right hand man has escaped prison, she leaves the protection the police have given her. Lucy is going to testify against him and Jerry wants her gone before that can happen. He makes sure that Duke will get the job done. Duke is in prison trying to finish hid sentence when he was offered another job, one her doesn’t want to take.
