"After barely surviving thirty-nine days of hell in Costa Rica—the site of his first-ever botched assignment—the Specialist is just coming off a six-month hiatus when the beautiful Mimi Sabo contacts him. Desperate to find her kidnapped father and with just days to come up with millions in ransom, Mimi needs the Specialist’s expertise, and quick. But there is only one problem: she is from Costa Rica—the last place the Specialist ever wants to be again.

The Specialist is prepared to decline the job until Mimi slaps a fat check on his desk. When he begins his investigation, he enlists the help of his friend and former Israeli secret service member and soon discovers that things are not as they appear. Swept up in a life-or-death mission, the Specialist heads to Costa Rica, where he must walk a path of corruption and betrayal, pitted against drug cartels, dirty cops, turncoat agents, and a terrorist bomber. But even the Specialist could never have predicted what happens next.

In this gripping thriller, one man must return to the place that has given him so much trouble and face his demons in order to solve a case for a beautiful client."
