modern-day murder spree, reaching from the quiet neighborhoods of Miami
to the back corridors of the White House.
What the killer didn’t
know is that there is one remaining copy. When it falls into Thorn’s
hands, he and everyone he loves become the target of madmen and trained
killers, each of whom has his own powerful motive to see the photograph
destroyed forever and its mysteries kept hidden.

both Alexandra and his closest friend, and sends him on a deadly
journey. But cover-ups have a way of disintegrating over time,
