Black Dawn is a continuation of the Davenport series, and picks up where Black Tide left off. In a race against time, Tom Spears is tracking his wife’s kidnapper from Washington State, to New York. Six days later, he finally catches up with them. A battle to save her ensues, and it’s there Tom begins to understand who’s responsible when he confronts a professional killer from Tom’s dark and ominous past—a past that began with the loss of his family, and then later unfolded into a whole new and unimaginable life working for the New York mob. His name is Bishop Styles. Efficient and deadly, he is known as the Duke of killers, and the confrontation launches Tom on a crusade for vengeance. He declares war on all involved, and a trail of dead bodies soon follows.

And while there, he stumbles onto a whole new mystery—a tragedy that will tear at his very soul, and take him in an unexpected direction that will further diminish his chances of survival...
