An action-packed thriller about two men living very different lives: one, a successful corporate consultant; the other, a former CIA agent known only as "Pilgrim," whose current assignment for a fringe espionage agency is so treacherous he doesn't trust even his own boss.

Ben Forsberg is a successful corporate consultant who is mourning the murder of his new bride. "Pilgrim" is a former CIA agent who is weary from the long years of living in the shadows. When Ben's business card turns up in the pocket of a dead hit man, Ben and Pilgrim, two complete strangers, realize that they've been framed in an elaborate setup.

Unsure who to trust-and pursued by a brutal and vengeful killer-the unlikely partners have no choice but to work together to discover who's targeted them for elimination-and why. But with everything at stake, Ben has no idea that Pilgrim is harboring some shocking secrets of his own-secrets that will soon force Ben to confront the blurred line between best friends and bitter enemies.

From Publishers Weekly

May 12, 2008 – A rock-solid if complicated plot distinguishes this stand-alone thriller from Abbott (Panic). In Austin, Tex., a hired assassin fumbles an assignment, leaving several men dead. In the pocket of one of the victims, a Belfast hit man, is the business card of Ben Forsberg, who's been trying to put his life together since his wife was gunned down on their honeymoon two years earlier. After Homeland Security agents pick up the clueless Ben because they think he's the killer, Pilgrim, an agent with yet another secret government agency, the Cellar, rescues Ben from the Homeland Security folk. The appealing Pilgrim and Ben set out to clear Ben's name and rescue Pilgrim's boss, Teach, who's been taken prisoner by the mastermind behind the elaborate plot. Abbott keeps the action zipping along as the body count mounts, and Ben becomes far wiser and far tougher as he learns the harsh realities of kill or be killed.
