It’s been one year since hot-shot attorney Justin McGee, Boston’s most deadly and elusive assassin-for-hire, took on the highest stakes assignment of his career. Killing an assistant district attorney is broad daylight is risky enough, but this assignment carried an especially risky wildcard. Justin finds himself on the lam living in hiding on a fishing yacht in Jekyll Island, Georgia. There he dwells among his dock-mates who consist of drug dealers, smugglers, prostitutes and even an illegal undertaker. The rug is pulled out from under his entire world when the woman that he believed he loved and subsequently murdered for money, shows up alive in order to exact a unique type of revenge. In an unorthodox way, the two lovers recommence their torrid affair and engage in a risky, yet lucrative counterfeiting trade operation. Suddenly, the arrival of an eleven year-old ragamuffin with holes in her clothes and blood on her hands, only further complicates matters. Each of the players at the table eventually find themselves caught in the crossfire of a terrorist plot the likes of which the world has only envisioned in its worst nightmares…

About the Author
MATT FITZPATRICK’s dream to be a writer started around age nine. At the time, he was an only-child and with no siblings, books became handy companions.

All that on top of having a successful twenty-five—year career in the investment management industry. To most looking in, he had won the game, but what was missing was his lifelong ambition to become an author. He now can share these stories with conviction as the scenes are a mirror of his life. This is his dream….
