Summary "While overseas fighting in the Afghan war, U.S. Army soldier Coop--a man haunted by the things he has seen and done in the war--is told that his wife has been killed back home in the States. The ticking of the clock begins as Coop is given a brief leave to attend to his wife's affairs. But while back in New York City, Coop discovers his wife's death was far more suspicious than anyone told him. He decides to go AWOL, using his military training to discover the truth of what happened to his wife. It doesn't take long, however, before Coop finds himself embroiled in a criminal conspiracy that reaches all the way into the Albanian mafia, Upper East Side royalty, and a scam at a recovery center for heroin addicts. All the while he's experiencing intense flashbacks from the trauma he received fighting overseas. But with time running short, Coop must unravel the mystery of his wife's death before the U.S. Army finds him--or his troubled past finally catches up to him"-- Provided by publisher.
