Former Marine and bona fide hero, Ranger Corrigan, is one paycheck away from joining his brethren among the ranks of Los Angeles's homeless veterans. When he is offered a great paying job in a palatial mansion, Ranger jumps at the chance for a roof over his head and a hot meal in his belly.
Handsome and cultured Landry Metzel lives too well to be the insurance appraiser he claims to be, and Ranger can't help but want to know why he's been hired to protect an innocuous man with no enemies. Metzel certainly won't be sorry to see him go.
As famous masterpieces suddenly begin disappearing from private collections, Ranger begins putting two and two together. When an LAPD detective starts asking questions about murders tied to the thefts, Ranger suddenly wants to learn more about the man he's hopelessly attracted to.
A wisecracking former Marine, a man with a desperate secret to hide, and a murderous villain come together in a tale of murder, danger, intrigue, and the crime of the century.
