Synopsis

Solomon Gage has always been a loyal employee. Orphaned at a young age, he was fortunate to be "adopted" by billionaire Dominick Sheffield. But Dominick's spoiled sons don't share his business ethics, and they resent Solomon.

Solomon knows Dominick's sons are up to something in Africa. He knows Dominick would not approve. And he knows that if he doesn't intervene, much more than the Sheffield fortune is at stake.

"Steve Brewer's 'Cutthroat' is a classic suspense novel." -- Best-selling author Charlaine Harris

"Solomon Gage is the man I want watching my back. Brewer delivers on every level." -- Crimespree Magazine

"Steve Brewer delivers a taut geopolitical thriller with sure-handed plotting and muscular prose." -- Award-winning author Bill Fitzhugh

"Solomon Gage, trusted employee of billionaire Dominick Sheffield, has one of those jobs you can't put on a résumé. He's a fixer, an odd-jobber, a go-to guy. Today his assignment is to pull Sheffield's granddaughter out of a crack house, which he does but not before the girl mumbles something that, not too far down the road, will cause Solomon to put his life at risk to save his boss from his own conniving sons. What starts as a fairly standard thriller slowly develops into an intriguing story about personal loyalty, family betrayal, and conspiracy. Brewer, author of the Bubba Mabry and Drew Gavin mysteries, is an experienced genre hand, but the lightly Shakespearean overtones here are something new for him. He makes it work, though, as he does the dark tone, similar to the Parker novels (written by Westlake-as-Stark), but with a more sympathetic lead. The book ends with the promise of a sequel, and that's a good idea: readers will want to continue getting to know Solomon Gage." -- Booklist
