"One shot to stop an empire. Mitch Herron has a bullet in his gut and a cell to call home. But when a problem arises that only Herron’s unique brand of carnage can solve, he’s put to work for his captor in return for the chance to keep breathing. As he plays his part in a gambit that will kill thousands and enslave millions, Herron baulks when the mission gets personal. But extracting himself from this mess will mean defying an empire. If he fails, there’s a hole with his name on it."
