From acclaimed author and screenwriter Derek Haas comes a unique and thrilling twist on a family story—what happens when an elite assassin becomes a father?

Now a new dad, the infamous Silver Bear finds himself staying up late for feedings and changing diapers—all while leading the double life of a contract killer.

The struggle is not with his conscience. He enjoys his gig. But a child forces him to weigh selfishness versus safety. Continue his line of work, and he’ll always wonder if he’s putting his child’s life at risk. His partner, Risina, serves as his fence. Like Columbus, she’s good at her job and likes doing it. An unusual take on working motherhood.…

When the next assignment comes in, both Columbus and Risina are surprised to find that the mark is another assassin: a brash, young killer named Castillo. Castillo is an assassin on the rise. Even Columbus is impressed by his tenacity and talent—and as he closes in on his target, he realizes that Castillo is a younger version of himself. It’s almost like looking in a mirror. Castillo has even studied Columbus’ work.

But Columbus’ assignment is clear: kill the young man. However, Castillo learns that his hero and unwitting mentor has a family—a revelation with enormous ramifications.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Haas builds characters who are complicated, memorable, and sharply drawn. His spare, lean prose wastes no words. Haas develops a powerful and compelling voice and spends his scant 200 pages building suspense, creating atmosphere, and telling a compelling yarn. An unflinching little gem of a story: violent, dark, and unrelentingly entertaining.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Haas’ absorbing fourth thriller featuring the contract killer known as Columbus tests the proposition expressed in the book that ‘lies are popular and truth is the uninvited guest who spoils the party.’ The well-constructed conclusion packs a powerful punch.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Columbus’ charm and dark humor offer a refreshing break from the sociopathic-assassin mold, and Haas’ gutwrenching tale moves at breakneck speed.”
