The third pulse-pounding thrill-ride featuring maverick agent Steve Vail, from New York Times bestselling author and former FBI agent Noah Boyd
An audacious theft of Mafia cash in a Vegas betting scam by a woman who disappears without a trace. Don Valentino Androtti is the type to hold grudges. And he makes Steve Vail an offer he can't refuse…
Maeve Ryan, an old flame of Vail's, is the woman in question. She tricked the Mafia outfit for over a million dollars, and now they want three million in compensation for the insult. She backed 7 winners in 7 fights. The mystery of how she did it is what the Mob are after.
If Vail finds her and brings her to the Don, they will both be released alive. If the Mob gets to Maeve first, they'll murder her and then kill Vail, too. Vail is up to the job, but has a worrying hunch that she is in Chicago and can be found at any time. Vail, as always, is the man with the plan. He can trick the FBI into giving him full disposal of their resources to find her. But Kate Bannon is suspicious that Vail is too eager to help out. And does Vail still have feelings for Maeve?
The stakes, in true high-rolling fashion, are sky high. And Vail's gamble could lose him everything he has…
