Every man has his dark side… Spero Lucas confronts his own in an explosive thriller from the writer of the award-winning THE WIRE.

Spero Lucas is a young Iraq war vet now working as a PI in Washington DC. He’s hired by a young woman to find a painting she lost after being scammed by a super-smooth con-artist. Spero tracks the painting down, but the con-artist is part of a team of ruthless thugs, and the woman who hired Spero is brutally attacked as a warning to stay away.

The warning doesn’t work. Spero is angry and he goes on the offensive, taking out the gang one by one. But where do Spero’s remorseless killings sit on the morality scale? Is he defending an innocent woman? Or have his experiences of war turned him into a ruthless killer, no better than the crooks he’s up against?
