Clint Kennedy, ex-banker, ex-con, and American ex-pat living in Mexico’s glorious White City, is an adrenaline junkie—but his desire for adventure could end his life at the hands of a ruthless killer. 


When Clint devises an ingenious plan to launder millions in cash into the family business, his life becomes a high stakes game of cat-and-mouse rampaging through the roaring bull rings of Merida, a seedy Mexican jail, and the gleaming towers of Miami’s most prestigious banks. Someone is going to die. Clint just needs to make sure it isn’t him.


This page-turning thriller, reminiscent of the works of Lee Child and Don Winslow, will have you on the edge of your seat.
