Throughout the course of her career with the CIA, Alexandria Kingston has made many enemies. So whose feathers has she ruffled this time? Whoever it is has deep pockets and is willing to put his money where his mouth is. He’s offering five million dollars to the person who brings him the Griffin’s head!
Alex has been staying in Boston for the last few weeks while her adoptive mother heals from a stint in the hospital. She’s reconnected with the family, and with her childhood crush, Shane Donovan. There’s nothing like being home for the holidays. Especially when your family runs the Irish mob. What starts out as a pleasant Thanksgiving weekend turns into a blood bath when the Murphy estate is hit by a rival hell-bent on taking control of the organization. So what’s the plan for Christmas?
The only man she’s ever loved, Shane Donovan, is going through a nasty custody battle and needs her help. Whether he knows it or not. Alex is certain that his soon to be ex-wife has skeletons in her closet and is on a mission to unearth them. Each secret she uncovers is darker than the last until the investigation comes to a grinding halt when Alex starts dodging bullets.
Assassins are crawling out of the woodwork like cockroaches to get her, but just as quickly, they’re murdered. The signature is familiar. It belongs to a maniacal psychopath known as The Shredder. The name alone evokes horror in even the most hardened criminals. He doesn’t simply take life. Instead he savors each and every drop of blood he elicits from his prey until they beg for death. For him, that’s when the real fun begins.
When Alex becomes The Shredder’s next plaything, everyone she loves scrambles to find her, but no one is more driven than Shane Donovan. He’d rather die than let anyone harm a single hair on her head. Now the clock is ticking. Will Shane find Alex in time?
