New York homicide detective Gabriel de Sade faces his biggest ever challenge when a series of brutal, bloody murders causes chaos and fear in the city of New York. Yet this time, his opponents are more powerful, more wealthy and more devious than de Sade has ever encountered before. This time, he will need his brutal skills more than ever just to stay alive. And to keep alive those he loves, who themselves are heading into trouble.
His girlfriend, Faith Ward, and her business partner, fly down to Mexico. To Nogales, the drug and murder hellhole in Mexico that straddles the Arizona border. Their innocent purchase of unwanted effects from an old church uncovers a two thousand year old relic that is reputed to possess magical properties of healing. And could also unleash the most frightening evil when men fight to possess it.
Fleeing Nogales, Faith and her Russian partner Galina are trapped in an Arizonan cross border tunnel. Gabriel has to pitch every ounce of his fighting abilities to counter his enemies, and embark on a desperate life or death search to uncover the tunnel and try to effect a rescue. This is an astonishing story of murder, drugs and people trafficking, spiced with a meaty helping of politics. And of a power even greater than men's imagining. Yet another book in this series that grabs the reader’s interest from page one and never lets up.
