Featuring the escapades of the enigmatic mafia gunman Wilson, this volume combines his first three adventures-- Darwin's Nightmare, Grinder, and In Plain Sight--of the critically acclaimed series. The first installment introduces the protagonist--a secretive figure who has spent his entire life under the radar. One day Wilson crosses the line, earning the hatred of a vengeful mob boss. Surviving only by delving even deeper into the underworld of Hamilton, Ontario, Wilson accepts the deceptively simple job of transporting a seemingly harmless bag. Soon, however, he discovers who its real owners are--and just how badly they want it back. The second book picks up two years later with Wilson trying for a fresh start by staying off the grid. Thousands of miles from the city he once escaped, a man comes calling on him with gun in hand and a woman in his trunk. Wilson is pulled back into his old life as a "grinder," working under the radar to quietly find out who is responsible for a dangerous mobster's missing nephews. In the third installment dirty cops use Wilson as bait in an attempt to catch even bigger criminals. Knowing that justice isn't blind in the city, Wilson picks a fight with the Russian mob to lure both the corrupt cops and brutal robbers into a trap, scavenging once again for his freedom. Full of gory conflict, these three whodunits offer nonstop action, savage violence, and an unforgettable cast of characters.
