Simon Andrews wants to be killed, and writes to Dan Holiday about it. When Dan arrives to talk him out of it, he learns that the man has had a change of heart, but he has already hired a hit man. Why not just call the hit off? It isn’t as simple as that.
The job was hired by middlemen, and the chain of communication is broken with murder. Can Dan Holiday locate the hit man before it’s too late? Who is this guy named Scot, and why can’t Holiday find him? Dan isn’t without a plan, and sets up his own trap.
