Mitch McDerre is hired by a Memphis law firm that specializes in tax law.

Soon after he starts with the firm, he learns that two of the firm's attorneys have been killed while boating in Grand Cayman.

An FBI agent approaches Mitch and tells him that the firm is owned by the mob and that the firm has bugged his home, his car and his office. They are also having Mitch followed.

Mitch hires a private investigator to look into the death of the two associates and two other employees of the firm who died in questionable situations. Mitch gets the information but the investigator is murdered.

We follow Mitch's life as he changes from an ambitious employee to a man who is in fear of his career and his life. He wonders how he will get out of this situation and feels that he cannot rely on the FBI.

This is a well plotted novel. The reader is drawn to Mitch's dilemma and can visualize something like this really happening and we hope for a successful conclusion.
