Summary
"Giorgio Pellegrini, the hero of The Goodbye Kiss, has been living an "honest" life for eleven years. But that's about to change. His lawyer has been deceiving him and now Giorgio is forced into service as an unwilling errand boy for an organized crime syndicate. At one time, Giorgio wouldn't have thought twice about robbing, kidnapping and killing in order to get what he wanted, but these days he realizes he's too old in the tooth to face his enemies head-on. To return to his peaceful life as a successful businessman he's going to have to find another way to shake off the mob. Fortunately, Giorgio's circumstances may have changed, but deep down he's still the ruthless killer he used to be"--Publisher's description
