Dan Hendricks è un ex agente della CIA, ora al soldo di varie agenzie straniere. Dà la caccia a pericolosi latitanti, li cattura, li consegna e si intasca il compenso. Non fa mai troppe domande e la sua migliore referenza è l’abilità con cui porta a termine ogni incarico. Quello di Dan è un lavoro delicato, dove si rischia la vita e dove può accadere che diverse persone possano volerti morto.
La nuova missione di Dan inizia nel profondo Nord della Svezia dove accetta di recarsi per indagare su un misterioso incidente stradale: un autobus ribaltato, diversi passeggeri morti, tra cui un certo Jacques Fillon, che in un gesto eroico ha deciso di dare la propria vita per salvare un’altra passeggera.
Ma chi è Jacques Fillon? Nessuno lo sa, nessuno in paese lo conosceva davvero. Sarà Dan a dover risolvere questo mistero, in un’avventura che richiederà tutte le sue abilità da cacciatore, per non diventare preda.

It’s been thirty years since his father went missing. Now there’s a body, can he finally find out why?
When a man’s body is discovered in a Swiss glacier thirty years after he went missing, his son, Foster Treherne, hopes he’ll finally have closure on what happened to the father he never met. But then the autopsy reveals signs of a struggle, and what was assumed to be a tragic accident suddenly looks more sinister.
Foster tracks down his father’s old friends, but when he starts to ask questions it becomes clear that there’s something they don’t want to tell him. While some are evasive, others seem to wish the body had never been found. What exactly is their connection to each other, and why are they so reluctant to discuss the day his father disappeared? Who are they trying to protect?
If he wants to uncover what really happened, Foster must follow the trail of secrets and lies—no matter how devastating the consequences, and what they might reveal about his father. Because the truth can only stay buried for so long…

He’s seen something that could get him killed. But what?

On the run from whoever wants him dead, Freddie knows he must have seen something incriminating. The only trouble is, he has no idea what. Is the CIA behind all this—or does it go higher than that? Have his trackers uncovered his own murky past?
As he’s forced into a lethal dance across Vienna, Freddie knows one thing for sure: his only hope for survival is keeping the truth from the other side, and making sure the secrets from his past stay hidden.
