"This is a suspense novel unlike anything I have read before. The main character is sort of an “unhero” in that he is an information broker to gang leaders and other nefarious people. Through him we see the dark underside of a large city." - Joan, Goodreads
Someone wants a war. Someone has taken a match to the criminal underbelly of Newport City and turned its factions against each other. The city's only hope lies in the hands of an unlikely trio.
Freelance information broker Kevin Wyatt, hired by a major gang leader, takes the case with the help of his ex-enforcer brother Chance McKaegan -- fresh out of prison. They are joined by Kaitlynn Lockhart, a journalist with a vendetta, driven by the crossfire murder of her boyfriend. Together, they must scour the city's darkest corners to expose a conspiracy more sinister than any of them can imagine.
alternative blurb: A crooked conglomerate makes a move on fictional Newport City by first attempting to incite a war between its existing criminal organizations before taking over with its own “in-house” group. Hired by a major gang leader to avert the war, freelance information broker Kevin recruits his ex-enforcer, ex-con brother Chance, and Kaity, a reporter with a vendetta, to uncover the conspiracy.
" This story was very exciting, so much action.
Great character development! I loved the involvement of Kaity. I'm so glad the author chose to get her involved in the investigations instead of sitting pretty on the sidelines." - Wall to wall books, Goodreads
