John Raines has had enough of being a paid assasin. Its a risky business and the odds of his survival are getting narrower with each job. There's almost nothing that would make him take another assignment, but 'almost' has found him this day. His best friend has been kidnapped and the perpetrator is threatening to kill him if Raines doesn't carry out one last job.

As a plot line, its a little lacking in originality, but the pace is enough to keep you following the story. Well read by Scott Brick, its a fine little thriller.
