When Hollywood superstar Max Conroy escapes drug rehab in Arizona, he becomes the target of bumbling kidnappers. But Max faces a far more dangerous foe. With the help of sheriff’s deputy Tess McCrae, he fights off a merciless enemy and makes a stand. He will destroy those who’d rather see him die like an icon than live like a man.
Detective Tess McCrae investigates the grisly murder of an ex-cop in the ghost town of Credo. To an ordinary investigator, the evidence suggests a cartel drug hit. But Tess, with a nearly faultless photographic memory, is far from ordinary, and she sees what others miss: this is no drug killing. In this serpentine, stay-up-all-night thriller, nothing is what it seems.
