The events in Hunter’s Games have taken their toll on Adrian, and he’s come to realize that maybe his days living the life of an assassin are numbered. He feels older, more tired and less motivated to keep doing what he’s spent half his life perfecting. After years of struggling with his inner demons and his guilt over the death of his family eight years ago, our favorite assassin is finally ready to return to where it all began – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to exact his bloody revenge on the man who took everything he ever loved away from him. Josh is by his side, happy that his best friend finally feels it’s time to confront his past and maybe, just maybe, find a way to leave it all behind him and move on. But he’s worried that Adrian still might not be ready to let go of the guilt that’s fuelled him for so long. In Pittsburgh, Wilson Trent presides over his criminal empire with ruthless aggression and savvy business skills, and has amassed a fortune that’s enabled him to control nearly every aspect of the state – including the police, the politicians and the rest of the criminal fraternity. Meanwhile, over in Allentown, a recuperating Jimmy Manhattan has designs on starting afresh, setting up his own empire in the city where he first started out so many years before. Once Adrian and Josh arrive in town, it’s surely only a matter of time before all these combustible elements collide, and all-out war breaks out! This intense, violent, action thriller shows us another side of our beloved anti-hero, and for every shot of adrenaline it gives you, it also gives a subtle tug on your heartstrings. They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions, but this journey is filled with nothing but bad ones!
