Synopsis: When the Gunn brothers Danny and Clay answer a call to help old friends, they are plunged into a deadly situation. Larry and Pamela Duke own one of the most popular nightclubs in the Spanish resort town of Ultima, but a local gang known as the Locos are determined to take it. Danny and Clay are hired to protect the club, but new adversaries enter the game. Against such odds there are only two choices: fight or die…

Excerpt: Pamela was a strong-willed woman. A lot of army wives get that way. They have as much upheaval in their lives as the soldiers they are married to, they just need to deal with it in a different way. A single tear blossomed at the corner of her eye. Not wanting to give the intruders the satisfaction of seeing her wipe it away; she pushed her hair back into a ponytail, shedding it of the last splinters of broken glass, and wrapped it with a small elastic hair-band. The tear blended onto her sleeve as she raised her arms.

“Tell your boss to make a serious offer and maybe we’ll think about it.”

“Too late for that now Chica. That boat has sailed. Now you get only…what you get.” The sneer accompanying Ortega’s message could have curdled milk.

“All of our life savings are in this place!”

“Call it…market…ah, fluctuation.” Ortega’s smoker’s voice was sandpaper to her ears. “We’ll be back at six. Then you and the peg-leg will sign over the deeds. If you’re not here, we will burn this place down and start over with a new place of our own.”

A new, deeper voice carried from the doorway of the bar, the American accent thick and unmistakable. “Jeez, Daisy, I’d sack your contractor; he’s made a real pig’s ear of the refurb!”

The three Loco’s turned to see a large silhouette blocking doorway. Not one to waste words, Ortega spat a warning. “Get lost. The bar is closed.”

The large shadow took a step inside. “But I thought the Woo Hoo was always open for a good time. Woo Hoo!” The new arrival did that ‘jazz hands’ thing in the air.

Ortega nodded towards the stranger and the flag-ripper stalked forwards, blade at the ready.
