Just before dawn on the South China Sea, pirates open fire on a small smuggling yacht. Their target is a bag of uncut sapphires worth millions. But an unexpected treasure sends everything sideways: Within minutes, two pirates are dead, leaving the third to claim the mysterious windfall for himself. The boss, Angela, isn’t about to let that happen. She calls in a fixer known as the Ghostman; given the right motivation, he can make serious problems vanish. In order to recover the loot, they’ll have to face down a crime boss, a hit man, and a conspiracy bigger --- and more dangerous --- than they ever imagined.

When a casino robbery in Atlantic City goes horribly awry, the man who orchestrated it is obliged to call in a favor from someone who’s occasionally called Jack. While it’s doubtful that anyone knows his true identity, he does entirely as he pleases and is almost impossible to get in touch with. But within hours, a private jet is flying him to New Jersey and right into a spectacular mess. He has only 48 hours until the twice-stolen cash literally explodes.
