The SUNDAY TIMES bestseller


22 seconds... until Lindsay Boxer loses her badge - or her life.

SFPD Sergeant Boxer has guns on her mind.

There's buzz of a last-ditch shipment of drugs and weapons crossing the Mexican border ahead of new restrictive gun laws. Before Lindsay can act, her top informant tips her to a case that hits disturbingly close to home.

Former cops. Professional hits. All with the same warning scrawled on their bodies.

You talk, you die.

Now it's Lindsay's turn to choose.
