Vanishing Games (Paperback)
Just before dawn on the South China Sea, pirates open fire on a small smuggling yacht. Their target is a bag of uncut sapphires worth millions. But an unexpected treasure sends everything sideways: Within minutes, two pirates are dead, leaving the third to claim the mysterious windfall for himself. The boss, Angela, isn't about to let that happen. She calls in a fixer known as the Ghostman, who has no real name, no address, and no fingerprints--given the right motivation, he can make serious problems vanish. In order to recover the loot, they'll have to face down a crime boss, a hit man, and a conspiracy bigger--and more dangerous--than they ever imagined...and hopefully, they'll do a better job than last time.
