Everyone knows that Prophet - former Navy SEAL, former CIA spook, full-time pain in the ass - works alone. But his boss at Extreme Escapes, Ltd. has just assigned Proph a new partner and a case haunted by ghosts from Proph's past. Suddenly he has to confront both head-on. Tom Boudreaux - failed FBI agent, failed sheriff, full-time believer in bad luck - is wondering why the head of a private contracting firm has hunted him down to offer him a job.
Soldier of fortune Prophet Drews always worked alone - until Tom Boudreaux became his partner. But when Tom walked away three months ago, ostensibly to keep Prophet safe, Prophet learned the true meaning of being alone. Everyone knows that Prophet, a Navy SEAL turned CIA spook turned mercenary, can look after himself. Which means he must've driven his lover away. Even with half a world between them, Prophet can't get the man out of his head.
"And the greatness continues!"
Ever since superspy Cillian moved into Prophet's building, their game of Steal the Couch has been funny to Prophet but a thorn in Tom's side. Then Prophet gets bored one night during an ice storm and insists on playing another simple game with Tom: Truth or Dare. In exchange for one of Prophet's truths, Tom steals the couch one last time. But Prophet's truths are never easy - Tom should know that by now - and this one raises questions neither of them quite knows how to answer.
"Another great installment to this series"
Before Prophet Drews can have a future, he must first put his past to rest. Prophet is a man on the edge, and he's pulling Tom Boudreaux, his partner on the job and in life, right over with him. When his old CO calls in a favor, Prophet asks Tom to join the off-the-grid rescue. But the mission raises all of Prophet's old ghosts: CIA assassins, the terrorist Sadiq, and, most importantly, John - traitor, former teammate, and Prophet's first love.
