Desmond Aloysius Limerick (“Dez” to his friends) has retired at 35 from a shadowy past of military and intelligence work. Now he’s just a bloke touring America with boyish charm, a bass guitar, and old bullet-wounds. He doesn’t go looking for trouble, but when it comes, Dez deploys his almost unique skill set: He can open any door, keep it open, and control who goes through and who doesn’t. When a highly trained team launches an attack on the heir to a multinational corporation, Dez becomes the right man in the wrong place at the right time. Now Dez and the target, whose brilliance with international finance matches Dez’s skill with violence, find themselves opening doors to a dangerous conspiracy that could fracture the United States itself. There’s only one obstacle between the conspirators and success — Dez, The Gatekeeper.
