Mitch Reilly is a drifter. He works for cash, skirts the edges of the law and when something inside tells him the time has come, he moves on. But now, after a decade without roots, he’s found the love of a lady, a crowd of friends and a good job. He’s ready to abandon his nomadic lifestyle and settle down.
When a police officer is brutally murdered after issuing a random traffic ticket, Mitch finds himself on the run, chased by a vengeful cop and hunted by a mysterious individual named Mr. Cole. Although he’s certain they’ve never met, Cole bares more than a passing resemblance to someone Mitch loathed in the past and worse, he knows more about Mitch than humanly possible.
Cole lives in the shadows, a man without a conscience who harbors a devastating secret that jeopardizes mankind’s future. He needs Mitch’s help to change the world for his own personal gain and he’ll leave a trail of death behind, if that’s what it takes to force Mitch to do his bidding.
