'Francis Ackerman [is] a manipulative monster with a corrupt conscience' THE TIMES
Most people hate me. But everyone remembers me.
In San Francisco, a ruthless criminal syndicate is building an empire on spilt blood. Among their number is 'The Gladiator'. No ordinary contract killer, the Gladiator sees himself as a modern-day Genghis Khan, determined to carve his very name onto the evolution of mankind.
To stop him Ackerman and Williams face him in an arena of death where violence is inflicted for profit and pleasure. This is the Gladiator's domain, a realm in which he is undefeated... but then he's never encountered Ackerman before.
