A #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
Michael Mace, head of security at a top-secret research facility, opens his eyes in a makeshift morgue twenty-four hours following an event in which everyone perished - including his best friend, Shelby Shrewsberry. He sets out to honor his late friend by helping Nina Dozier and her son, John, whom Shelby greatly admired. Michael's actions evoke the wrath of John's father. But an even greater threat is descending: the Internal Security Agency's most vicious assassin, Durand Calaphas. Calaphas will stop at nothing to get his man. From Beverly Hills to South Central to Rancho Santa Fe, only Michael can ensure that light survives in a rapidly darkening world.
