The gold he stashed to finance a fresh start has disappearedâ the friend he trusted it to is long deadâ the answers buried beneath the dirty secrets of a onetime rival's success and the truth of why an old acquaintance who married a fortune needs Joe dead or back in prison to keep it. When Joe crosses paths with a soured cop hungering for an opportunity to muscle in on a lucrative blackmail racket -- if he can find a suitable lowlife to frame for the killings -- the bodies start falling.
A prime murder suspect once againâ Joe's sole hope of avoiding a return to prison lies in smoking out the real killer. As each layer of deceit he scrapes away reveals more of the treachery that stole his lifeâ his hunt for his gold becomes a quest for vindication. But to get his shot at that bittersweet justiceâ he must gamble everything -- the goldâ his freedomâ and ultimately his life -- on the heart of a beautiful attorney who just may be playing for the other side.
