New York City. 1977. Ex-Green Beret William Kane has crossed the line he vowed never to: killing. But for every action there is a reaction and there are forces after him for revenge, chief among them the IRA. The CIA hasn’t forgotten about him either after his involvement in covert ops in Vietnam. There is an elite team of IRA soldiers in New York City and they’ve gotten their hands on some powerful weaponry. What is their target? When will they strike? As the long hot summer of 1977 drags on and the Bronx burns, Kane does some burning of his own, unraveling secrets from his past and helping those who need his particular brand of justice while tracking the terrorists. His problem: where is his new line? Who can he really trust? Kirkus Reviews: "Action packed entertainment." Amazon Reviews: "Reacher and Kane should hook up sometime!"

No one knows the full extent of the labyrinth that lies below New York City. It's a world unto itself. There are those who prowl the darkness for their own evil reasons. He learns this isn't an isolated incident and that murders are being committed in horrendous ways; and that seem so to be just the tip of the iceberg than can be seen.
