Dead and Gone

Performed by:
Phil Gigante
#12 in Burke Series

Career criminal Burke’s skill at working the feathery edges of the law are legendary, and this isn’t the first time he’s been hired to trade cash for an abducted kid. But when the meet turns out to be an ambush, Burke’s partner is killed and he’s left for dead. Dumped on the steps of the ER, Burke hovers between life and death. While the police — and whoever wants him dead — are circling closer, biding their time. Burke escapes the hospital, his face forever changed by the surgery that saved his life. The whisper-stream mutters that he’s dead, and he certainly is gone. From New York, anyway. Burke is on the hunt, knowing he has to find whoever wanted him dead to protect his own life. And avenge his partner. Unable to call on his own family for assistance, Burke goes into his past for help. All the way back. All the way back to his origins as a “child of the secret.” The trail starts in Chicago, continues into the Pacific Northwest, then to the remote mountains of New Mexico. And ends in a place that exists only in the dreams of the darkest degenerates on earth.
