In this tight Thriller Short, New York Times bestselling writer Christopher Reich revisits his hero Nick Neumann, whom readers first met in Numbered Account. After all these years, Nick is back on Swiss soil with a new mission and a new occupation. In his clandestine world, anonymity is key, so it has to be more than coincidence when Nick encounters his arch nemesis, the Greek, at a restaurant. Members of their elite profession are rare, so the chance to assess one another’s skills over dinner and a bottle of champagne is an opportunity these men can’t pass up. How they each perform will determine which one makes it home and which one is eating his last meal.
