There is a ghost haunting Harry Bauer. He doesn’t know who it is, or what he wants, but he invades Harry’s house with impunity during the small hours of the night, and, while Harry sleeps unawares, he enters his bedroom, closes the windows and the drapes, and observes him.
Harry was eight years with the British SAS and is COBRA’S top assassin, but this ghost has skill that even Harry can’t match.
To Harry it is like a sign. Maybe it’s time to hang up his Sig Sauer and his Fairbairn and Sykes, leave the war against evil behind him and make space in his life for a woman, a home, a love that might heal the ancient wounds and make him whole again.
But he has one more job to do: Marco Benini, a mobster who traffics in women and children, a monster the FBI can’t touch because sometimes the law protects the devil instead of the angels. But as Harry struggles to finish the job, it seems the ghosts from his past might overwhelm him and take him down, with that last, sweet razor cut.
