He lives in the shadows to protect her. But to save her, he'll have to rise from the grave.
The day Shane boarded the plane for basic training, I was happy for him. He escaped a life we both despised. Then he was killed in action before I had the chance to tell him I loved him. Now I write letters he'll never read. Talk to a cold gravestone, heard only by the wind...and maybe that guy in a baseball cap I only glimpse before he disappears.
I didn't need my father's money to become one of the deadliest men on earth: an assassin on an elite special forces team. I had no idea the cost of achieving my dream would be...everything. Now all I can do is watch from the shadows while Lily, untouched by the filth that clings to my soul, cries over my grave. Leaving her was hardest thing I ever had to do. But when her life is threatened, keeping my distance isn't an option.
Because I'm the only man on earth who can save her.
