The discovery of a simple black-and-white photograph taken during the 1964 Clay-Liston fight in Miami Beach unleashes a modern-day murder spree that ranges from Florida to the secret byways of the nation's capitol and forces Thorn into a perilous alliance with a dangerous enemy to solve the baffling puzzle and to find retribution for the death of a loved one. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave

A simple black and white photograph taken during the 1964 Cassius Clay-Sonny Liston fight on Miami Beach may hold the key to a horrific, politically-motivated crime forty-two years earlier. After it mysteriously reappears, the photo is burned in an act of arson that sets off a modern-day killing spree reaching from the quiet neighborhoods of Miami to the back corridors of the White House.

What the killer did not know is that a copy of the photograph still remains. When it falls into Thorn’s hands, he and everyone he close to him—including his beloved Alexandra—become the targets of madmen and trained hitmen, each of whom has a powerful motive to see the photograph destroyed…and will go to murderous lengths to make it disappear forever.
