Sheriff Lawrence Garrison has sworn to protect and to serve the struggling population of fictional Dodge County, far from Florida's towering, condos and gated communities. On the other side of the world lays oil-rich Chechnya, where restless patriots seek to share in the petro riches of its Russian motherland. Accepting one final contract before retirement, Emilio Fortino, professional operative and assassin, develops a kidnap scheme to pressure Russian leadership into granting valuable concessions. When Fortino snatches the jet-setting son of the Russian president during the Super Bowl in Tampa, his path crosses that of Sheriff Garrison, and both hunter and prey learn that they are unlikely foes who share a moral code and sense of honor. Their decisive confrontation leads readers to a dramatic and unexpected conclusion.
