Don’t miss it!

The follow-up to the award-winning THE WALL with the same peripatetic characters, Thomas and Alex.

A professional contract killer tries to assassinate Alex in Mexico City, and he does not know who might have ordered the hit—because there is a large pool of suspects. A notorious womanizer, Alex is a well-known T.V. star in romantic soap operas recently cast in a blockbuster Hollywood film with a dark side unbeknownst to his adoring fans: he is also a soldier of fortune and debt collector in the seedy Mexican underworld.

Since he cannot run to the authorities and risk exposing his secret life and harming his career, and fears more attempts on his life, he enlists the help of his best friend and business partner, Thomas Bertram, to aid him in searching for the elusive mastermind.

The quest takes the two ex-Marine buddies to the dangerous Rocinha favela in Rio de Janeiro, the glitzy upper echelons of high society in Paris, the dark alleys of the Gothic quarter in Barcelona, the glamorous Hollywood studios in L.A., the vibrant streets and nightclubs of Miami, and the quaint, artistic city of Asheville nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

As they close in on the person or persons pulling the strings, Thomas, and Alex realize they have stumbled onto something more treacherous than they could have imagined. And as their hunt for the truth leads them relentlessly to the highest levels of power and to uncovering the most clandestine of secrets within the hallowed halls of the U.S. government, Thomas, and Alex are determined to expose the shadowy people behind the assassination attempts and make them pay with their lives if necessary.
