About the characters:
JAMES “GHOST” ST. PATRICK
Brilliant and debonair, James St. Patrick is ready to leave his criminal persona of “Ghost” behind, and begin his new life as the legitimate owner of New York City’s hottest nightclubs. This fresh start includes his rekindled relationship with his first love, Assistant United States Attorney Angela Valdes. He dismantled his drug empire, and with it, his friendship with his former best friend, Tommy. James is about to have the clean life he’s always wanted— if he can keep the specter of “Ghost” from coming back to haunt him.

Angela now must find a way to keep her integrity as a prosecutor, and the old sins of Ghost from turning her dream life with James into a nightmare.

Wild, wounded, and loyal to a fault, Tommy and Ghost began the drug business together, and for him, it’s not a means to an end – it is the end itself. The bond he had with the St. Patricks meant more than anything to him, making it all the more painful when Ghost dismantled their drug empire from under him. Now working for Lobos on his own, Tommy must adapt to life in the underworld without Ghost as he faces the most difficult task of his life.
