A former Navy SEAL turned vigilante hitman already in the crosshairs of corrupt Russian agents finds himself in even deeper trouble after rescuing a sex trafficking victim against her will just as she is about to be delivered into the hands of an unscrupulous corporate mogul, an impetuous and dangerous man who will not be denied his purchase. . .
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
During the battle to liberate Mosul from the brutal grip of the Islamic State, Killian Lebon, a war-weary Navy SEAL Senior Chief, sustains life-threatening injuries from an explosion during a rescue operation that goes horribly wrong.
Forced into early retirement from a vocation that for almost twenty years had been his sole purpose for being – that of a fearless warrior in defense of his country – Killian’s life quickly spirals downward to the deepest depths of hopelessness and despair due to the traumatic after-effects of his injuries and the overwhelming guilt he feels from the tragic consequences of his failed final mission.
Left without the will to continue on within such a dark and indifferent world, Killian attempts what he expects will be his last and ultimate mission. But RJ, a woman he had loved once long ago, saves him from his void of despair and, in her effort to console him, reveals two long-held, painful secrets, secrets that inspire within him a dark new purpose for living.
However, it isn’t long before this new lethal life mission of his places him and those he cares for straight within the deadly crosshairs of corrupt Russian agents and unscrupulous corporate moguls and forces him on a desperate and harrowing journey of rescue and revenge, one that takes him from the lush rolling hills of his Southern Pennsylvania farm, down to the mean streets of Baltimore and the steamy bayous of New Orleans, and then back once again to the windswept desert of Iraq where all his troubles first began… and where his most anticipated act of vigilante justice is destined to be executed.
"I was absolutely drawn into this story right from the beginning. This is a gritty and enthralling novel. Kurt Brindley is a great story teller and provides such knowledgeable detail to make one consider he was there, in this dark and dangerous world, if not experiencing it - then certainly taking serious notes! Incredible. The skilled way he draws us into the mind of each character is not only impressive but keeps the reader even more captivated by the story. The character development is outstanding. The dialogue, which some authors struggle with, I found to be very natural and realistic." Ann, Amazon Reviewer
