Husband and wife detectives Sid and Ronnie Abel are called in to investigate the murder of scientist James Ballantine, while married assassins Ed and Nicole Hoyt are hired by mysterious contractors to keep the details of Ballantine's death a secret.
"Sid and Ronnie Abel are a first-rate husband-and-wife detective team, both retirees of the LAPD. Ed and Nicole Hoyt are married assassins-for-hire living in the San Fernando Valley. Except for deadly aim with a handgun, the two couples have little in common--until they are both hired to do damage control on the same murder case. As the book races toward a high-octane climax, the Abels must fend for their own lives as they circle ever closer to the truth" -- from author's web page.
