In taut prose reminiscent of Richard Stark’s Parker series comes a tale of two men pitted against one another, and themselves…

Ruthless millionaire Matthew Ryan is a collector. He collects souls. He collects people. In the process, he’s lost the person most precious to him, and he wants her back—whatever the cost.

Owen Curtis grew up in the Dominican Republic, mostly in and around Boca Chica beach. As a young boy he suffered his own loss when his mother was swallowed whole by a vortex of prostitution and drugs. Years later would come a moment that still haunts him, a moment that precipitated his long fall straight into prison.

Amongst a thicket of deceit and violence, and ever-rising danger, the final showdown between these men can only end one way. With one survivor.
