What will it take to stop a hitman from carrying out his contract?
His business card reads security specialist, but Julian Mercer can do just about anything. As a former SAS operative, he has training and skills few possess. But after his wife was viciously slain, Mercer gave up his commission and joined the private sector.
While visiting Chicago on a job, Mercer stumbles upon the scene of a botched assassination. A man is bleeding out in his fiancée’s arms. Mercer searches for the shooter. But he’s too late. The attacker has disappeared. And no matter what the police say, this wasn’t a mugging gone wrong. It was a hit.
Mercer vows to put an end to the contract, but to do that he’ll need to stop the hitman and the person responsible for ordering the execution. Getting answers isn’t always easy. In fact, most of the time, it gets kind of messy. Just how far will Mercer go to make the city safe again?
