Payden Beck has been a police officer, a police detective, and a private investigator. Now, after a lifetime of combatting crime, he’s ready to stop fighting.
When a young girl named Chloe—kin to his greatest adversary—tries to hire him, he gives her the sad news. But, when Chloe makes her plight clear, Payden knows he must take her case, even if it means confronting a police force on the take, the Spanish Mafia, and, perhaps worst of all, Chloe’s family.
With life and death at stake, defeat is not an option; only sacrifice.
“I was excited to see Golvach’s contemporary crime novel, Dormir, pop up on Reader’s Favorite review list; doubly so when I saw Payden Beck (he of 10-30 fame; the novel that introduced Payden to a worldwide audience) was the lead character. I’ve read several novels and stories by this multi-award-winning author and none have disappointed—au contraire.” ~ LAS Book Reviews
