The gritty, riveting, highly anticipated sequel to the national (and international) best seller Ghostman, by the critically acclaimed, award-winning Roger Hobbs. It's just before dawn on the South China Sea when three experienced pirates open fire on a small smuggling yacht. Their target: a bag of uncut sapphires worth millions. But when one of them stumbles across an enormous treasure that wasn't on the manifest, everything goes sideways. Within minutes two of them are dead, leaving a coldblooded psychopath to claim both the sapphires and the mysterious bonus, in hopes of disappearing completely, as he'll now have more money than anyone could ever spend. His boss, Angela, isn't about to let that happen, so she calls in a favor from her onetime protege, a man with no real name, no address, no fingerprints a man who can make anything (including himself) vanish. Sometimes known as Jack, or simply as a Ghostman. Angela happens to be the only person for whom he'd drop everything and fly halfway around the world. He's been trying to figure out for six years if she's even alive, and given what she's up against he's on the plane immediately and by her side in the glimmering neon slums of Macau, dodging local crime lords and a highly trained hit man, up to their necks in a conspiracy bigger than they've ever seen and more dangerous than they've ever imagined. Their partnership between people whose livelihood stipulates that they have no lasting relationships whatsoever is at the very heart of a novel that will cement Roger Hobbs's status as one of our most talented crime writers.
