A locked vault, inside an impenetrable fortress. A deadly prize within.
Upon the successful completion of a risky undercover assignment in the States, the covert salvage operative known only as Korso is contacted by his only real ally, the mysterious hacker M.D. Dog.
Tracked down by Interpol's cybercrimes unit, Dog faces life imprisonment unless they betray a client - the merciless South American crime lord Miguel Quezada - whom Interpol are convinced ordered the Guatemalan Vice President's assassination a year before.
Knowing Korso is the only one who can help, Dog wants him to infiltrate Quezada's heavily guarded compound to recover the murder weapon - a Mayan jade dagger - hidden in a safe room somewhere on his property.
Get the dagger to Interpol and Dog goes free. Fail? And it will be the end of them both...
SANCTUM, the second in the Korso series published by Canelo, is on sale now in paperback & ebook.
WHAT IS A DEATH SENTENCE TO A DEAD MAN?
He was a man with many names. Moving from country to country, changing his face so as to remain in the shadows, he was nothing more than a ghost. For now, he is known simply as Korso.
A covert salvage operative, he recovers lost artefacts, often stolen, for rich benefactors unable to operate through normal channels. But his shadowy existence is shattered upon the arrival at his Bermuda home of the man he had hoped never to see again…
Tasked with recovering a missing, one-of-a-kind shipment in only four days, his elite skill set will be tested to its limits. Failure will result in his identity being revealed to his former boss, the ruthless Nikolic, who'd stop at nothing to eliminate the one man who walked away from his organisation.
Discovery by Nikolic will be a literal death sentence. But then, what is a death sentence to a dead man?
