It's taken ten years for former assassin Doc Ford to reinvent himself on Florida's Gulf Coast. Now the abduction of his only son--the legacy of a long-ago love affair--has pulled him back into the shadow of his violent past, and more is at stake than ransom. The kidnapper is a legend known as lncendiario. Torture by fire is his specialty--and his pleasure. In the pay of a vengeful politico with twisted ties to Doc, lncendiario is arranging a private hell reserved for the innocent. The trap has been set. And Doc has no choice but to brave it.
