A Quiet Vendetta
A ThrillerBook - 2012
When Catherine Ducane disappears in New Orleans, the cops react fast, she is the governor's daughter, after all. But the case quickly grows strange. Her bodyguard turns up horribly mutilated, and when the kidnapper calls, he doesn't want money: he wants time alone with a minor government functionary. By the time the pieces fall into place, it's already too late. This is both the epic story of one mobster's life, ranging from Cuba to Chicago, and equally a powerful thriller of rage, love, and loss.
