The hunt begins for Lemuel Gunn's most vicious and elusive quarry. Former homicide detective and CIA agent Lemuel Gunn has left behind the Afghanistan battlefield for a trailer in New Mexico to forge a new career as a private investigator. Out of nowhere comes Ornella Neppi, a woman making a mess of her uncle's bail bonds business. She asks Gunn to track down the source of her troubles, a man named Emilio Gava, who has jumped bail after being arrested for buying cocaine. But no photos of Gava seem to exist. And once Gunn begins his search for a man it seems that someone is protecting, hitting dead end after dead end, he starts to suspect that Gava might not exist at all… As Gunn's game of cat and mouse unfolds – every step leading him nearer to the truth – he draws ever closer to an unseen enemy's line of fire.
