1st in the Charlie Hardie series
Mystery Lovers Review:
Charlie Hardie, an ex-cop still reeling from the revenge killing of his former partner's entire family, fears one thing above all else: that the same thing will happen to him.
Languishing in self-imposed exile, Charlie has become a glorified house sitter. His latest gig comes replete with an illegally squatting B-movie actress who rants about hit men that specialize in making deaths look like accidents. Unfortunately, it's the real deal. Hardie finds himself squared off against a small army of the most lethal men in the world.
It's nothing "personal"--the girl just happens to be the next name on their list. For Hardie, though, it's "intensely" personal. He's not about to let more innocent people die. Not on his watch.
