    Bridge didn't get involved with his clients, especially clients who put him at risk. From the minute he spoke to the killer who called himself Logan, he knew this one was trouble. All Logan wanted was someone to forge him a new identity so he could continue running from the secrets of his past. A simple job for Bridge, hooking Logan up with a paper guy, got complicated in a hurry when his connections started turning up dead, killed by black-robed killers with swords.
