Ransom for Hire: Shadows of His Past

203 pages4 hours


Jack Ransom is a man caught between two worlds. Good and bad, light and dark, evil and...worse. Once upon a time, he was a gun for hire for the worst of humanity and the scariest things of the paranormal. He was good at his job. He was the best.

Still is.

He turned his back on all of that for the love of a woman, and tried to make his past his past. Until a demon offered him a deal to save the life of that same woman, his wife Julia. Ransom agreed to work for the demon until the debt was paid off. But he forgot the most important thing when making deals with demons:

Don't make deals with demons.

Now he's trying everything he can to get out from under the demon Al'Gamesh's control, and take revenge for what was done to his wife. Everyone knows you can't just call out a demon. Not without proof. Ransom has to find the evidence he needs to bring his case before the Hierarch. Without the Hierarch's blessing, Al'Gamesh will get away with what he's done to Ransom and his wife.

Now a mysterious man with ties to Ransom's past has come to him with an offer that might solve all of his problems. He wants Ransom to kill a man. Not just any man, either. This is one of the men who kidnapped his wife. Here's the proof Ransom needs. It's his for the taking. It sounds too good to be true.

Because it is.

Everything Ransom has ever done in his past has caught up to him again. Fighting his way through the city streets of Memphis, avoiding shadowy creatures and trigger happy assassins, he must protect the very man he wants to kill so badly.

At least until he can figure out a way to make him stay dead permanently.

Hard to kill someone who's immortal.

It's going to be a long day.
