Editor's Note

Blockbuster author…
Featuring a US marshal turned vigilante, “The Kill Clause” is the first in the series that launched Gregg Hurwitz to fame. Read it now, while his next novel is being adapted for the big screen by Bradley Cooper.


Tim Rackley, a deputy U.S. marshal, watches helplessly as his daughter's killer walks free on a legal technicality. He is suddenly forced to explore his own deadly options -- a quest that leads him into the welcoming fold of "the Commission."

A vigilante group made up of people like himself -- relentless streetwise operators who have each lost a loved one to violent crime -- the Commission confronts the failings of a system that sets predators loose to hunt again, cleaning up society's "mistakes" covertly, efficiently, and permanently. But Rackley soon discovers that playing God is a fearsome task. When his new secret life starts coming unwound at an alarming speed, he is suddenly caught in the most terrifying struggle he has ever faced -- a desperate battle to save everything left that's worth fighting for.
