Santa Fe lawyer Ed Eagle fell in love with and married the unscrupulous but seductive Barbara Kennerly—but it was against his better judgment. He should have listened to his head instead of his…um…you know. Now Ed’s in for a rude awakening—literally.
On the morning of his 50th birthday, Ed learns Barbara has drugged him and jetted off to Mexico City, but not before cleaning out their bank account and putting a contract out on his life. Why didn’t she just ask for a divorce? Ed sends L.A. private investigator Cupie Dalton south of the border to find her. He does. But Barbara shoots him, then vanishes.
To further complicate matters, Ed’s stuck with a triple homicide case after the suspect’s first lawyer blows his brains out. And as Ed soon realizes, his new client, Joe Big Bear, isn’t all he seems. Things get infinitely more dicey—and deadly—from there….
No other author writes like Stuart Woods. If you’ve read Dark Harbor, or any of his other sexy thrillers you know what we’re talking about. The Los Angeles Daily News called Woods’ first novel featuring Ed Eagle “a rollercoaster ride of breathtaking speed, sharp, totally unexpected turns and unflagging suspense.” Get ready for another thrill-ride. His second Ed Eagle adventure does not disappoint.
