Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“You know why we hate you? Not because you dont know what we know, but because, if you did, you wouldnt give a damn.

So Im sitting here, waiting to commit extortion, and planning a lot worse. Im what youd call a criminal. Thats why Ill never be you. And Im proud of it.” --from Terminal

When the former shot-caller of the countrys most feared white supremacist prison gang contacts Burke, he comes with references ... and the promise of a huge score. Terminally ill, the ex-con needs major cash to gamble on the long-shot possibility of a cure thats available only in Switzerland. The only card he has to play is a small-time degenerate who paid for protection when they were in prison together. That professional bottom-feeder claims he personally buried the body of a thirteen-year-old girl who had been raped, tortured, and finally killed by three rich men more than thirty years ago--and that hes holding irrefutable proof. But such a complicated extortion scheme needs the hand of a specialist crew, so Burke is offered a piece of the action.

He and his outlaw family put together a lethal plan. If they can pull it off, Burke gets the two things he lives for: Money and Revenge. If not, “terminal” could prove to be more than just one mans diagnosis.

Terminal is a blistering thriller that forces Burke back in time--to keep a blood-commitment to a brother from his prison past, and to avenge the “cold-cased” rape-murder of a teenage girl.

Synopsis:

In this blistering new thriller, Burke is forced back in time in order to keep a commitment to a brother from his prison past, and to avenge the cold-case murder of a teenage girl.
