Kirk watches nervously as a new employee goes undercover with a drug ring
The employees at the Advantage Company have started to steal. They are angrier than they used to be, and also clumsier—accident reports have spiked. To Devlin Kirk, these are telltale signs of on-the-job drug abuse. Hired by Advantage to smash the drug ring that’s sprung up inside its factory, Kirk sends his newest employee, earnest farm boy Chris Newman, to infiltrate the company. Newman sees suspicious activity everywhere, but lacks the experience to find hard evidence. Only when Newman is tortured to death is Kirk sure that the kid was on to something.
Meanwhile, Kirk’s partner, Bunch, takes a job working as a bodyguard for a man who claims to be hunted by Japanese assassins. Kirk & Associates has a reputation of doing anything for its clients. In these two cases, the job wants blood.
