New Orleans PI Cliff St. James is asked to work on a high-profile double homicide in Kovacs's exciting second to feature the former detective (after Storm Damage, 2011). When close friend Detective Honey Baybee asks Cliff for his assistance, he has no idea how dangerous the case will turn out to be. Two men who worked for the Defense Department at the local NASA facility are dead. Cliff's digging links the men to a "Buyer's Club"--a network of arms dealers and intelligence agents purchasing weapons and high technology on the black market. Can he solve the case before he becomes the next victim?
