Paul Janson was a covert assassin for the American government’s top secret Consular Operations.  He saw the light when he became classified as the “beyond salvage” target of the government due to a failed mission in which he became the chosen one to take the fall of the screw-up of higher ups (see The Janson Directive).  He survived the assassination attempts and opened up CatsPaw Associates security firm with Jessica Kincaid.  Their firm’s vision is to accept scenarios that will make the world a better place.  Janson also manages the Phoenix Foundation as his means for redemption; the mission is to rehabilitate black ops operatives discarded as worthless trash by their agency when their use is deemed over.

 

Doug Case lost his job at Consular Operations when he took a bullet that saved Janson’s life but left Doug paralyzed.  He graduated from Phoenix and is security chief of Houston based American Synergy Corporation.  Case hires Janson to rescue a company physician kidnapped by the Free Foree Movement who demands the Isle de Foree hated dictator “President for Life” Iboga leave.  With Kinkaid having his back, they make it to the main rebel stronghold, but all hell breaks loose when they arrive

 

This is a great action-packed twisting thriller as Jason and Kincaid are stunned with the deployment of Reaper drones and Harrier jets as neither should be there.  As the action goes international, readers will learn what Janson already knows from his assassin days that terrorist groups, rogue nations, and amoral covert agencies are less dangerous than internationally protected “job creating” ruthless unscrupulous corporations.
