Ninety-three days ago a girl went missing, only to be found in a suitcase, two bullets behind her right ear. Hayden Fuller worked that case and now he's working another that's eerily similar: a missing young woman, no ransom note, and clues pointing to a high school guidance counselor. Fuller, an ex-hockey player drummed out of the NHL for taking salacious pix of a cheating husband (and teammate), now finds himself slipping back into Maple Leaf Gardens and clashing with a demimonde of corrupt CEOs, gangsters, prostitutes, and porn. With the help of a maverick reporter, tough guy Fuller navigates a host of double crosses and betrayals. But will he find the girl in time? 94, 95, 96 days and counting . . .
