"WE WANT TO HEAR THE MUSIC BEFORE HIS THROAT IS SLIT."
Those were Nick Carter's orders. Translated, they meant that Nick had to find Rico Corelli before the Syndicate killers did.
Corelli had been controlling the international drug chain from Corsica for years. But when the Mob found that their profits were slipping and Corelli's were mounting, the heat was on and Corelli was on the run.
If Killmaster got to him first, Corelli could be made to talk and the drug chain would drop in AXE's lap. If the Mafia did, there'd be one more bloody name on the Mob's death list.
Armed only with a beautiful female narc and a flimsy cover, AXE's chief agent begins the hunt. But the Mafia's enforcers are with him all the way. And the first corpse is a ringer for the man Nick Carter is supposed to impersonate…
In a tense, bloody race against time, Killmaster stalks a man he's never seen, a ruthless unphotographed killer running for his life from the men who know him best!
