From New York Times best-selling author and former Green Beret Bob Mayer.
The most frightening weapon ever invented can be unleashed by a single person. And now, they have chosen her. On the border between Croatia and Bosnia, a killer practices his art on UN Peacekeeping troops, leaving handless bodies on display on crosses.
In a trailer near Fort Bragg, a hitman targets a computer genius who has uncovered information more explosive than he could ever guess. And in an ancient, abandoned castle in Germany, a teenage girl is plunged into a living hell - one that will take her into the heart of a murderous Middle Eastern plot. The only mistake the bad guys make, is not taking into account that her father is Special Forces.
Now only one Special Forces operative can stop two madmen from turning the girl into a devastating biological weapon. In a series of brutal covert operations, Thorpe must battle not only the enemy, but betrayal from his own side to not only stop the weapon, but save the daughter of his best friend.

I listened to a number of the Dave Riley series and really enjoyed the character and the apparent precision Mr. Mayer gave to military detail. I didn’t listen to the last 2 books in the series because some of the reviews indicated that Riley had been sidelined in the story and Riley was one of the reasons I listened to the books. I decided to try something different that Mayer had written. This book received pretty good reviews and I suppose from a technical perspective it is pretty good, but lost are the characters. They didn’t really develop. It almost felt like an abridged book keeping only the key elements and all the action to tell the story while the characters seemed more minor. If connecting with the characters is important to you, skip this book. If you like action and don't mind an abridged feel try this book.
