"Couldn't pry me away...Bauer writes with authenticity...A knockout original story, with a host of equally original characters. Certainly not your typical crime fiction, and that's a good thing." --David Swinson, author of Trigger.
Philo Trout just wanted to start over.
He moved to Philadelphia to keep his past a secret. His new life as a crime scene cleaner is quiet--until he discovers that many of his "clients" are coming up short on their organ count.
As Philo tries to outrun his past, a coworker can't remember his own. Patrick was found brutally beaten, and is now an amnesiac as a result. When the connection between his coworker's history and missing organs begins to emerge, Philo is determined to solve the puzzle.
The trail of clues leads Philo into a dark conspiracy. A brutal organization will stop at nothing to protect their secret. And Philo's past as a fighter might be his only route to the truth...
If he can survive that long.
