(The third book in the Kevin Markinson series)
A novel by

Former mob "troubleshooter" Kevin Markinson returns for a thrilling game of cat and mouse in Book 3 of the Kevin Markinson series. Markinson has finally settled back into prison life, hoping to serve out his sentence and return home to his family. Unfortunately for Markinson, fate has other plans. Mob boss Jerry Remora has decided that it's time for his ex-wife, Lucy Remora, to go... preferably before she can testify against him in a federal racketeering trial. When he orders his right-hand man to hire the best hitman in the business to take her out, a plan is hatched to break Duke Markinson out of prison to do the job - whether he wants to or not. U.S. Marshal Sally Barnard has tracked Markinson down before, and when she learns that he has escaped from prison again, she immediately volunteers to bring him in. Lucy Remora also hears about Duke's escape and panics, running away from protective custody to escape what she knows will be certain death from Markinson's gun. In the cold and snow of a New Hampshire winter, the deadly chase begins. Can reluctant hitman Markinson find a way to get out of the contract and avoid a return trip to prison? "A solid, captivating thriller. The reluctant hitman with a past is the kind of bad guy you can't help but pull for, but he's only one of a cast of fully-realized, fleshed-out characters that pull you in and keep you reading to find out what happens next. A definite winner." - J.D. Rhoades, bestselling author, attorney, and award-winning newspaper columnist "In her third novel involving Kevin Markinson, a hitman with a troubled and challenging past, the talented J.E. Seymour revisits a hard-boiled time when the burdens of family are ever-present, and when violence or a fired gun can break out at any moment. The writing is crisp and clear, the characters are achingly three-dimensional. This series deserves praise and wide-spread recognition." - Brendan DuBois, author and multiple award-winning and three-time Edgar nominee, Lewis Cole series "Take one ex-Marine/CIA assassin turned mob hitman, add an inept crime boss who wants his wife dead, stir in a U.S. Marshal who plans to stop it, and sit back for a New England Fargo. Kevin Markinson is back for a third installment of J.E. Seymour's series and the last thing he wants another mob job. He reluctantly agrees and soon finds himself on the run; dodging bullets, his old nemesis U.S. Deputy Sally Barnard, and double crossing criminals, all the while trying draw a bead on his target." - Ricky Bush, Author, Crime Fighting Bluesmen series
