Private investigator Lincoln Perry finds himself in the crosshairs of police investigations in two states when an old rival, Alex Jefferson, is brutally murdered. Accepting involvement in the case after a request from his former fiancée, Perry agrees to locate the dead man’s estranged son and inform him of his large inheritance. It seems like a simple role, at least until Perry lands in jail while the son is zipped into a body bag.

Soon Perry realizes that Jefferson’s millions are the target of a thirst for revenge that hasn’t been satisfied by blood. As a pair of deadly assailants push deep into Perry’s life, they bring with them intense pressure from police who are determined to see Perry in jail—if he survives long enough to make it there...
