Ten years ago, while her surgeon husband was working in a Mexican clinic, Milla Edge Boone was attacked and stabbed, and her infant son Justin was stolen. In the end, Milla lost her son, a kidney and her marriage. Refusing to give up hope of ever finding Justin, she forms Finders—an organization that specializes in finding missing persons. While she has not found Justin, Milla has helped many others recover their loved ones.

During the fight, when Justin was stolen, Milla managed to maim one of the attackers. Ever since, she's tried to get information on the one-eyed man. Over the last two years, the name Diaz has popped up several times, always uttered with great fear. From these accounts, Diaz appears to be a legendary and relentless assassin. When Milla receives an anonymous call telling her that Diaz will be at a specific location, she feels compelled to follow up.

When Milla does finally connect with the mysterious Diaz, she is concerned and intimidated. Diaz's reputation appears to be well deserved, but when she explains her quest, the mysterious assassin agrees to help her locate the one-eyed man.

Intense and darkly mesmerizing from beginning to end, this gut-wrenching roller coaster of a book is incredible! The bestselling Howard delivers first-class terror and suspense. (Nov., 320 pp., $25.95)
