A sequel to the best-selling Ghostman finds Jack agreeing to help his former mentor dodge crime lords and an assassin to track down a psychopath pirate who has stolen a lucrative treasure with ties to a dangerous conspiracy. Simultaneous.

Random House Digital
The gritty, riveting, highly anticipated sequel to the national (and international) best seller Ghostman, by the critically acclaimed, award-winning Roger Hobbs. It's just before dawn on the South China Sea when three experienced pirates open fire on a small smuggling yacht. Their target: a bag of uncut sapphires worth millions. But when one of them stumbles across an enormous treasure that wasn't on the manifest, everything goes sideways. Within minutes two of them are dead, leaving a coldblooded psychopath to claim both the sapphires and the mysterious bonus, in hopes of disappearing completely, as he'll now have more money than anyone could ever spend. His boss, Angela, isn't about to let that happen, so she calls in a favor from her onetime protégé, a man with no real name, no address, no fingerprints--a man who can make anything (including himself) vanish. Sometimes known as Jack, or simply as a Ghostman. Angela happens to be the only person for whom he'd drop everything and fly halfway around the world. He's been trying to figure out for six years if she's even alive, and given what she's up against he's on the plane immediately and by her side in the glimmering neon slums of Macau, dodging local crime lords and a highly trained hit man, up to their necks in a conspiracy bigger than they've ever seen and more dangerous than they've ever imagined. Their partnership--between people whose livelihood stipulates that they have no lasting relationships whatsoever--is at the very heart of a novel that will cement Roger Hobbs's status as one of our most talented crime writers.

The gritty, riveting, highly anticipated sequel to the national (and international) best seller Ghostman, by the critically acclaimed and award-winning Roger Hobbs

It's just before dawn on the South China Sea when three experienced pirates open fire on a small smuggling yacht. Their target: a bag of uncut sapphires worth millions. But when one of them stumbles across an enormous treasure that wasn't on the manifest, everything goes sideways. Within minutes two of them are dead, leaving the third, a coldblooded psychopath, to claim both the sapphires and the mysterious windfall for himself. If he disappears, he won't just be wealthy. He'll have the power to change the course of history.

His boss, Angela, isn't about to let that happen. She calls in a favor from her onetime protégé: a fixer sometimes known as Jack, or more often as simply the Ghostman. Within hours he's flying halfway around the world to find her in the glimmering neon slums of Macau. Jack has no real name, no address and no fingerprints-but given the right motivation, he can make serious problems vanish. Though the two haven't talked since they botched a job six years ago, as soon as Jack's off the plane they're back together again, facing down a crime boss, a hit man and a conspiracy bigger than anything they've ever encountered and more dangerous than they could've imagined.

Their partnership-between people with no lasting relationships whatsoever-is at the very heart of a novel that will cement Roger Hobbs's status as one of our most talented crime writers.
