"This is heroic fiction with high voltage action scenes as carefully choreographed as anything on the broadway stage"
The team thought that Frank Meyer had got out of the 'life' safely. For the love of a good woman, he had put an end to his days as a mercenary and settled down to a normal life with a “proper” job and 2.4 children. It had been a decision he laboured over, but encouraged by his boss and friend Joe Pike, he committed to it and walked away from the only life he had ever known.
Ten years later, a group of vicious killers charge into his Los Angeles home and brutally gun him and his family down. The job bears all the hallmarks of a professional outfit. They are in and out of the house quickly, having caused the maximum damage. The perfect hit. But unknowingly, they have made one massive mistake - Joe Pike. Because Pike is now locked-on - determined to hunt down and eliminate everyone involved in the attack. One by one. #
The local cops are convinced that Frank never entirely left his former life and their cursory investigation convinces them that Frank was involved with some unsavoury characters, and that the deal backfired big time. Pike knows better. He starts his own investigation and it doesn't matter that, as he delves deeper into the events of that traumatic evening, he discovers that this group of criminals are bigger and more well-organised than he ever could have imagined - part of sprawling gang of east European mafia. None of that concerns him. One of his team has been killed and everybody involved will pay the ultimate price.
