The US debut of acclaimed UK mystery writer Colin Campbell
When he lands at Logan International to extradite a small-time thug, the first thing rogue UK cop Jim Grant does is buy a map. The second is get laid. Third is almost get himself killed interviewing Freddy Sullivan, the prisoner he flew from England to question. In the midst of a few distractions — beautiful strippers, ruthless criminals, an armed standoff complete with SWAT teams, snipers, and live television coverage — Grant discovers the truth about Sullivan’s dangerous sideline. With the assistance of troubled ex-marine John Cornejo, a little help from police detective Sam Kincaid, and the sensuous ministrations of Terri Avellone, Grant must survive being shot, stabbed, and blown up to save Boston from a catastrophe no one saw coming.
