The explosive finale in T. Jefferson Parker's "New York Times" bestselling Charlie Hood series, which will bring together the destinies of three men caught between light and darkness.
Los Angeles County sheriff 's deputy Charlie Hood is attached to the ATF, working undercover on the illegal arms trade that flows across the U.S.-Mexican border. The sparkle of the diamond fillings he wears in his left canine distracts his task force targets and is often the first step toward a long stay behind bars.
Meanwhile, Bradley Jones--sheriff 's deputy, employee of the Baja Cartel, and son of the love of Charlie's life, the deceased L.A. outlaw Suzanne Jones--is expecting a son of his own. Suzanne was descended from famed Mexican desperado Joaquin Murrieta, whose embalmed head Bradley inherited from her and keeps nestled among piles of cash, proceeds from Bradley's own life of crime.
Charlie knows Bradley's secrets, all of them; the question is what he'll do with the information. But he still has to contend with the devilish Mike Finnegan, who flits in and out of the lives of his friends, knowing things he shouldn't, seemingly immortal, delighting in the havoc he wreaks.
All three men are about to meet. But all will not survive.....
