Farrak is a man full of hate for everything America stands for. Born in the Middle East and raised in the shadow of terrorism, he was selected, while just a child, for a great honor: the honor of being "The Chosen One".
Since then, his entire life has been dedicated to the preparation for one mission. Now it is his turn to strike a blow to the American way of life that will change the course of history.
Gary believes in America and has spent his life defending what it stands for. From jungles to city streets, he has risked his life countless times, just like many Americans before him, to protect our freedom. At the end of his military and FBI career, his government thanks him by telling him that his methods are too violent, too messy, and politically incorrect. He is told he is no longer needed. His choices are resign or take a low level desk job looking for possible terrorist names on rental car agreements....until a terrorist enters the country that intends to carryout an unknown mission with terrible consequences.
Gary's mission is to track down the terrorist before he strikes and deal with him in any way necessary, politically correct or not. When Gary learns that the terrorist is traveling by truck, he enlists the help of Americas' truck drivers and soon becomes known by truckers across America as Gary the G-man.

The protagonist is clearly unhappy over the way he was marginalized in his fed job, but the story of how he redeemed himself leaves a lot to be desired if you're looking for a good spy read. His motivations are clear enough, but those of the villain are not always. It doesn't make sense for him to detour and risk his operation to murder people he'd known 30 years before, with whom he seemed to have had a cordial enough relationship, though it did give a clue to the protagonist as to who was behind the terrorist plot. I think the author could have tried to develop a more reasonable backstory for that clue. But then, too, there's the question about whether the terrorist truck drivers wouldn't have heard the CB and talk radio broadcasts and alerted the villain in time to salvage his operation. This plot is too simplistic for spy novel enthusiasts, though probably a fun read for trucker fans.
Great story and character. Like that the story was told from two different points of view.
Yes, Never knew if G-Man would catch up with the bad guy. Like how the trucking industry was highlighted
Very good. Clear and articulated.
Just plain enjoyment. Would recommend and hope the author writes more stories.
