Killing Ground

Jacket Notes:  Two ruthless men...one innocent woman...caught in a deadly embrace.

Mafia kingpin Mario Ruggerio--as elusive as he is brutal--has built an empire on the blood of his enemies. U.S. Federal Agent Axel Moen has sworn to bring the Sicilian down, no matter how, no matter who pays the price. And now he's found a away to penetrate the Ruggerio family through Charlotte Parsons, a former nanny in the home of Mario's brother, and the perfect pawn in this brutal game.

Drawn into a web of deception, betrayal, and sinister political intrigue, Charlotte discovers there's no one she can trust--her survival will depend solely on her own instincts and courage. Because in this high-stakes game, losing means certain death...in the killing ground.
