An early morning phone call from law enforcement? Never a good sign in Clarke Lantham’s world—but for a private detective desperate to make ends meet, a government paycheck for a measly three hour delivery job couldn’t come at a better time. Playing postman might be a little beneath a PI’s pay grade, but only an idiot says “no” to five hundred dollars for an early morning coffee-and-cake run.
But when a Jeep runs him off the road and gunmen descend upon the accident, Lantham finds himself the unintentional custodian of the other driver and his business partner: two hapless geeks with a doomed tech company.
With no phone, no car, no partner, and no hope of rescue, Lantham must survive a deadly game of hunter-prey through steep mountain terrain in a fog bank as dark and deadly as the secrets surrounding the package he was hired to deliver…
…before the gunmen’s employer finds another target, closer to home.
