Ex-undercover cop Marshall Grade is hiding out in California when he learns that federal agent Lucas Cohen has survived a kidnapping. Cohen was Marshall s ticket into witness protection, and his captors have a simple question: where s Marshall now?
Marshall s undercover work gave him a long list of enemies, and the enemy in this case is a corrupt businessman named Dexter Vine. Vine s almost broke, in debt to people even worse than himself, and he wants to settle old scores while he has time. He s hired Ludo Coltrane a nonchalant psychopath and part-time bar manager to find Marshall at any cost. Ludo s no stranger to killing, but his associate, the cash-strapped ex-con Perry Rhodes, may prove more of a liability than an asset.
The question is: what has Marshall done to make Dexter want him dead? And are the contacts from his old life ex-colleague Lana, and the heroin dealer Henry Lee prepared to help him, or will they just sell him out?"

Cohens abductors want to know only one thingMarshalls location. After killing one kidnapper and escaping, Cohen phones Marshall to warn him. Marshall and Cohen go to New York City to discover who has put the price on Marshalls head. The prime suspect is Chloe Asaro, a woman whom Marshall once loved and also once shot. Meanwhile, Dexter Vine, whos leading the various small-time criminals searching for Marshall, hopes to use the $5 million bounty to pay off Chinese mobsters. No one emerges from this story unscathed, and the brutal violence features duct tape and shattered glass almost as prominently as blood and bullets. Amid all the mayhem, Sanders takes care to develop his viewpoint characters as distinct individuals. Hollywood has optioned American Blood, and this sequel continues that novels cinematic level of action and excitement. Agent: Dan Myers, Word/Link Literary Agency. (Apr.)
