Spademan's latest job is to snuff out Jonathan Lesser, a lowlife lurking around other people’s virtual fantasies. As Spademan is about to close the deal, Lesser comes back from the limn with a wild claim: terrorists are planning to attack New York. Again. This time from the inside out.
The warning sends Spademan down a dark path full of unsavory characters and startling revelations. He's always had his share of enemies, but now they’re coming at him from all sides and it’s impossible to know whom to trust. To stay sharp, his only option might be the one thing he swore he’d never do again.
