Michael Patrick Finnigan and Katalin Fiero Dahar, have the ultimate meet cute, with a dangerous twist. At the time Finnigan was a US Marshall and Fiero was a Spanish assassin, both in the Ukraine for a joint operation between governments in an attempt to catch a notorious drug runner. Finnigan, a by the rules sort of guy, and Fiero, definitely not a by the rules sort of gal, had different takes on what would be a successful outcome for the endeavor, wounds ensued.
Six months later they both still wanted to fight the good fight against the bad guys but were disillusioned with their government jobs. Recognizing their respective talents, they decided to freelance. Much of their work came through the International Criminal Court, on the qt. This time they are after human traffickers, well connected and deadly. The story gallops through the pages, lots of action, a deadly hot babe, Fiero, and a guy willing to put it all on the line ,Finnigan, for justice. Great fun to read, and it is easy to cheer for Fiero and Finnegan.— Deon Stonehouse
Michael Patrick Finnigan was a New York City cop and a US Marshal who figured out that following the rules doesn't always get the job done. Katalin Fiero Dahar was a soldier, spy, and assassin for Spain, who figured out that breaking the rules doesn't always get the job done.
Together, they created St. Nicholas Salvage & Wrecking, a largely illegal bounty hunting operation based in Cyprus and working throughout Europe. Operating under the radar for the presiding judge of the International Criminal Court, they track down the worst of the world's worst.
Someone is kidnapping Middle Eastern refugee children as they flee war-torn countries and selling them into prostitution around the world. Finnigan and Fiero get the assignment to track them down and save the refugees. But when they discover that the perpetrators are a Serbian mobster-with patronage at the highest levels of the United Nations-and a battalion of the Kosovo military, the partners reach out to their friends to find justice, including a corrupt banker, a cadre of mercenaries, and a crew of professional thieves.
The battle to stop the mass kidnappings ranges from Belgrade and Zagreb, to the Loire Valley and Milan, and to the plains of Kosovo. As Finnigan and Fiero close in, the conspirators realize that the judge of the ICC is the real threat and plan an assassination. Now the partners have to save their patron and the kidnapped refugees from a rogue military force with nothing left to lose.
