On a mission in Africa, a Special Forces operator unwittingly uncovers a government conspiracy that gets half his men killed and sends him on a quest to bring those responsible to justice.
US Army Special Forces team sergeant and sniper Master Sergeant Rob Walker is deployed to the Horn of Africa as part of a joint task force with the Ethiopian National Defense Force. They’ve been tracking terrorist targets for months and training local forces to prevent the establishment of permanent terrorist training camps within and near their borders.
But a few US officials have a vested interest in the region. When an operation goes horribly wrong and half his team is killed, Walker begins to question the motives of his government. Badly wounded, he sneaks out of the hospital and begins his own investigation into the deadly attack.
What he finds is something he was never meant to see. Walker unravels a sinister scheme, one that will make a few rich beyond their wildest dreams if they can keep it a secret.
Their mistake? They should’ve made sure he was no longer breathing.
Walker goes dark and off the grid, on a one-man mission to find the perpetrators and make them pay. And he won’t stop until every last one has answered for their crimes.
But, will he make it that far? Or, will they finally finish the job?
Rob Walker has served in countless operations in combat zones across the globe. Now, his mission is personal.
After returning home from a combat mission in Afghanistan, U.S. Army Special Forces sniper Rob Walker is in a race for time to rescue his kidnapped sister from the clutches of a Mexican drug cartel.
Having seen too much during a botched drug deal, she is snatched up off the New York City streets and handed over to cartel members who are after their payday. Suspecting her of being sold into sex slavery to satisfy the unpaid debt, Rob must act before it’s too late. But, taken deep into the Mexican criminal underworld, Marianne completely drops off the radar.
Heading south on a quest to find her, Rob teams up with his best friend and spotter. He decides to do the only thing he can do: commit violence and punish everyone involved in his sister’s disappearance.
Rob’s mission: save Marianne and send a clear message of brutality to her captors.
But once a cartel hitman picks up their trail, it becomes a dangerous game of cat and mouse.
Will they get to Marianne in time? Or will she vanish forever into the global sex trade?
