Failure is never an option, especially for assassins caught in the mire and opposing forces of politics and ideology.
While Hahn is in his home making love to a beautiful woman, undercover agents from the Washington DC police department are outside waiting for him. They suspect Hahn is connected to a recent homicide, and they need to figure out how. A hired killer working for a secret society, Hahn races to finish his latest job without getting caught. He is stuck in the isolation of being able to trust no one-not even his partner.
Hahn struggles with the rewards and downsides of living a double life as a bartender in a sushi restaurant and an assassin for the Malaysian government. Money is the greatest of the rewards, but playing roulette with one's life is certainly the most depressing downside. While he understands the dual nature of his existence, Hahn believes he is vulnerable enough to lose his mind and soul to the dark epicenter of cruelty and heartlessness that comes with being a hired killer. But in this world of sin and betrayal, there is no room for failure.
From Bulgaria to Mexico City to Washington DC, mystery, sex, and violence combine, with suspense woven throughout, in a world where assassins, drug lords, and politicians fight for dominance.
