Special Forces Thirtyish and unemployed, Riddle has moved to the town where he has placed his mother in a nursing home. Weighted with bad memories and guilt, he spends his days exploring the rural county with his camera. On one of these excursions he comes upon a deserted club where he sees a ghostly figure. The place itself seems to have been abruptly abandoned some years ago. Investigating later, he learns that a young man disappeared there ten years earlier, and his curiosity begins to draw him into an underworld of killers and drug-cookers run by renegade commando Tig Ledoux, and his assistant Doc. He finds his only ally in Leila, the deep-sighted daughter of a local fortune-teller. Drawn into Ledoux’s employ, he begins to piece together the connection between the disappearance and these dangerous men, and after witnessing first-hand their depravity, finds himself in a lethal dilemma: kill or—something worse than being killed. Purchase Online
