In this sequel to the
Edgar Award-winning The Butcher’s Boy,
Thomas Perry’s highly skilled mob hit man returns to the United States with more
reasons to kill—until the odds turn terrifyingly against him.
He came to England to rest. He calls himself Michael
Shaeffer, says he’s a retired American businessman. He goes to the races, dates
a kinky aristocrat, and sleeps with dozens of weapons. Ten years ago it was
different. Then, he was the Butcher’s Boy, the highly skilled mob hit man who
pulled a slaughter job on some double-crossing clients and started a mob war.
Ever since, there’s been a price on his head.
Now, after a decade, they’ve found him. The Butcher’s Boy
escapes back to the States with more reasons to kill. Until the odds turn
terrifyingly against him … until the Mafia, the cops, the FBI, and the damn Justice
Department want his hide … until he’s locked into a cross-country odyssey of
fear and death that could tear his world to pieces. Download and start listening now!
