Publisher's Summary

Publishers Note: Listening order. To heighten your enjoyment of Jack and Ethan's developing relationship, please listen to the novellas Bargaining with the Devil, When the Devil Drives, and Devil in the Details before this audiobook. Thank you.

Jack Reardon uncovers secrets for a living, and the Meta-State spy is pretty good at it. Or rather he thought so until he met Ethan Blade—assassin, warrior, enigma. The unlikely pair have decided to give living together a shot, but Jack's not entirely certain what he's gotten himself into—or exactly who he's in it with. Jack's worries are compounded when he's assigned to a police strike force hunting a serial killer. With each new puzzle piece, Jack considers the true nature of a serial killer—and how similar it is to an assassin...one particular assassin who's having trouble adjusting to retirement. Jack's unsure how to help Ethan; or if he even can.

When the killer strikes close to home, Jack must race against the clock to stop another murder, despite the price someone has put on his head. Could the matters be connected? Is a certain assassin at the center of both? Surrounded by killers, the only one Jack wants near disappears, leaving Jack drowning in secrets. He'll have to do what he does best—unravel the secrets, including Ethan's—to stop the killer and save the life he and Ethan have only just begun to build.
