Natalia Mayne said, “What’s the first rule?”
“Fear nothing,” I said.

Mike Romeo is an ex-cage fighter living off the grid in Los Angeles. Running from a dark guilt that dogs him, he’s finally found a place where he can rest and even heal.
Then a church blows up. And with it all of Romeo’s hopes to be left alone. When he stops to help an injured woman whose kids are missing, someone decides to put a target on his back.
But whoever wants him dead picked the wrong guy. Because Romeo has rules––and he’s going to make them stick.

“Romeo is a killer thriller hero. And James Scott Bell is a master of the genre.” – Tosca Lee, New York Times bestselling author
