The thriller is said to be “the most charismatic assassin since James Bond” by the San Francisco Chronicle and follows John Rain, who is up against his most formidable enemy yet: nexus of political, military, media, and corporate factions known only as the Oligarchy. Rain can’t resist an offer by legendary black ops veteran Colonel Scott “Hort” Horton” when in Tokyo, taking in a multi-million dollar payday for the “natural causes” demise of three ultra-high-profile targets who are dangerously close to launching a coup in America.

But pulling it off isn’t going to be easy for Rain to do alone, which causes Rain to seek a detachment of other deniable irregulars: his partner, the former Marine sniper, Dox. Ben Treven, a covert operator with ambivalent motives and conflicted loyalties. And Larison, a man with a hair trigger and a secret he’ll kill to protect.

The four lone wolf killers will have to survive presidential hit teams, secret CIA prisons, and a national security state as obsessed with guarding its own secrets as it is with invading the privacy of the populace…but first they’ll have to survive each other! Set against a variety of locations from the shadowy backstreets of Tokyo and Vienna, to the deceptive glitz and glamour of Los Angeles and Las Vegas, and finally to a Washington, D.C., get ready for a non-stop roller coaster thriller ride of epic proportions with this page-turning Kindle book.
