For a professional bodyguard, there's nothing worse than being tagged as a man who attracts danger. But after his last job, that's just what they're saying about Atticus Kodiak. In fact, there's only one person in the business willing to touch him with a ten-foot pole.An easy job, according to Elliot Trent, head of New York's biggest security firm: baby-sit a pampered playboy hiding from the angry brothers of an ex-playmate. It's a job Kodiak finds himself forced to accept, a decision that draws him into a multimillion-dollar game of cat and mouse.The mouse: Jeremiah Pugh, a material witness whose testimony can knock the legs out from beneath America's mighty tobacco industry. Racked with guilt, Pugh may be his own worst enemy.The cat: known only as John Doe, one of the Ten, designated by international law enforcement as one of the ten most dangerous contract killers in the world. A ghost, unknown and unidentified, who changes with the wind and adapts to any situation.Drawn into the field of fire by Elliot Trent, Atticus finds himself exactly where he doesn't want to be - between the killer and the target. For Atticus and the assassin are bound by a common thread: their obsession to get the job done.
