Description

A fast, powerful read full of action, twists, and dark humour

Bounty hunter Karl Morgen goes after Miro Knotts on a skipped bond, finding the dope dealer wrapped around an underaged girl at a rave in Seattle. Dragging Miro in the hard way gets Karl’s license revoked, while Miro gets off with a suspended sentence.

Finished in Seattle, Karl finds work as a process server in Vancouver. To Karl, it’s the kind of place where people settle things with middle fingers instead of guns, the kind of place a guy could get used to. He meets PJ Addie, the kind of woman he could settle down with.

After Miro ducks a drug sweep by escaping north of the border, he decides to come after Karl, blaming him for the mess his life has turned into. Karl puts settling down aside, longing for another crack at the scumbag who had his license revoked. What follows is a ride through Vancouver’s underbelly featuring gangsters and cops and a final confrontation between Karl and Miro that only one will walk away from.
