“Frank Meyer, a former mercenary now living a normal life, has been killed along with his family. Has his past come back to haunt him? Or has he been involved in 'something bad,' as the police believe? Frank was one of Joe Pike's men, and Pike is determined to discover the truth -- no matter how dangerous. If you are looking for strong characters and strong action The First Rule is for you.”
-- Karen Briggs, Great Northern Books and Hobbies, Oscoda, MI


Description

When Frank Meyer and his family are executed in their home, the police begin investigating the secret life they're sure Meyer had. Joe Pike's on a hunt of his own: to clear his friend's name, and to punish the people who murdered him. What starts out as a simple trail gets twisted fast by old grudges, double crosses, blood vengeance, and a crime so terrible even Pike and his partner Elvis Cole have no way to measure it.
