Book Description Five Star (ME), 2006. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. 1594144702 Best-selling horror writer Peter Stryker is found in a locked suite after what the police describe as a night of "self-mutilation." With classical music playing softly in the background, Stryker laid out medical instruments, filleted his own flesh, and cauterized each wound unto death. Would a man commit suicide by butchering his own body? Stryker's daughter Nicole does not accept the theory. ''My father was terrified of death,'' she tells retired Black Ops agent Jack Burke. ''I want to know what happened in that hotel room. And why.'' Burke, who is working both sides of the law to pay his wife's mounting medical bills, involves the surviving members of his Delta team--Detective Scotty Bowden, who stepped over that thin blue line to go on the take, and wheelchair-bound Coroner Doc Washington, crippled during their final mission, who is losing his battle with painkillers. The bloody trail leads Burke deep into corruption and conspiracy, facing both a vicious drug lord out to settle old scores and an evil cult whose leader seeks to destroy this world, and create the next, by unleashing a deadly new virus. One final mission, one last chance for redemption. Seller Inventory # KB006510
