Description
The real Richard Marder would shock his acquaintances. Even his wife, long dead, didn't know the man behind the calm, cultured mask he presents to the world. Only his old army buddy Patrick Skelly knows what Marder is capable of. Then a shattering piece of news awakens Marder's buried desire for vengeance, and he sets off to punish the people who changed his life years earlier. Together he and Skelly raise the stakes far beyond anything Marder could have envisioned. As the two men head toward an apocalypse of their own making, Marder learns that good motives and sense of justice can't always protect the people a man loves.

Marder is perfectly comfortable keeping his true self a secret from his clients, his friends and his daughter. Even his wife, long dead, didn't know the real man behind the calm, cultured mask he presents to the world. Only an old army buddy from Vietnam, Patrick Francis Skelly, knows what Marder is capable of.

Uninvited, Skelly shows up and the two of them together raise the stakes far beyond anything Marder could have envisioned. As Marder and Skelly set out on the road, headed toward an apocalypse of their own making, Marder learns that good motives and sense of justice can't always protect the people a man loves. A range of fearsomely real characters, from a brutally violent crime lord to a daringly courageous young woman, a roller-coaster of twists and turns, and a shattering exploration of what constitutes morality in the face of evil, Michael Gruber has once more proven that he is "a gifted and natural storyteller" (Chicago Tribune) and shows why he has been called "the Stephen King of crime writing."
