Wilson survived his transgression and went even deeper into the underworld of Hamilton becoming a ghost in the city – an unknown to almost everyone until he was paid back for his one good deed. It started with a simple job. Steal a bag from the airport and hand it off. No one said what was in the bag, and no one mentioned who the real owners were or what they would do to get it back. One bag sets into motion a violent chain of events from which no one will escape untouched. Wilson learns that no one forgets, no one gets away clean, and no good deed goes unpunished.
“Fans of Richard Stark and Andrew Vacchs will immediately recognize his cold-blooded pragmatism and brass-knuckled approach to problem solving...The action is straight, hard and fast and the characters are as sharply etched as this stuff gets...as clean and tight a debut as I’ve seen recently. The sure hand and utterly convincing tone displayed by the first time author, a school teacher, bodes well for not just him and Canadian crime writing, but for fans of hard-boiled fiction everywhere.”
