Former military intelligence operative, Josh Katzen, had been enjoying retirement. New name, new job, new friends . . . he should have known it couldn't last.
When a skeleton, wearing an expensive wristwatch, is uncovered in an ancient Peruvian ruin, it sparks a chain of events that threaten to topple Katzen's new life like so many dominoes. The situation gets worse when the remains are identified as those of a notorious antiquities dealer who disappeared decades before, taking with him the location of an item he'd stolen from the US government.
Against his will, Katzen finds himself drawn back into the shadow-world of espionage and is forced to use his skills and wits to survive and perhaps save the day one more time.
