A knock on the door in the middle of the night sets off a dangerous and deadly pursuit in this stand-alone crime novel in the Cain City series.
Ephraim Rivers, a struggling single father on the brink of losing his factory job, is working the graveyard shift when a man with a bullet in his gut stumbles in, whispering of stolen money. Ephraim sees an opportunity to alter the course of his family’s fortunes and becomes obsessed with finding the loot.
But there are bad men pursuing the treasure. Out to seize power and settle scores, killing means nothing to them—and they have no pity for anyone who gets in their way. Ephraim just wants to do right by his son, whose medical bills are piling up; and by his father, whose time on this Earth may not be long. But it’s a fine line between desire and greed. And crossing that line could be Ephraim’s final act.
