On sale August 28 is Rucka's first book in six years about deep-thinking bodyguard Atticus Kodiak. In trademark fashion, Rucka lands fans in the middle of the action, picking up fifteen minutes after Atticus and his assassin lover Alena have dispatched their enemy, Oxford.
Atticus intends to leave Alena at a safe house in upstate New York, but driving away, he is ambushed. Narrowly escaping, he returns to the safe house to find several guards killed, including his longtime friend Natalie Trent.
So begins Atticus and Alena's quest to avenge their friends and find out who wants them dead. An impressive mix of military, espionage, and political thriller with white-knuckle pace and surprises through the last page.
