Publisher's summary

Former NTSB Investigator Jake Pendleton faces a dilemma as the line blurs between right and wrong. After his judgment comes into question, Jake is entrusted to his new mentor, an eccentric old man who sees beyond Jake’s flaws. A man who makes ‘toys for spies.’ A man known as The Toymaker.

Jake’s first assignment reunites him with Gregg Kaplan in a daredevil mission to rescue a fellow agent held captive in Yemen. He risks his life to stop the first attack of an al Qaeda mastermind. But now, with no one to trust but himself, can Jake stop the terrorist from destroying what is most precious to the free world? Unfortunately, more trouble comes his way as a killer from his past threatens something more important to Jake than his own life, leaving him to make the hardest decision any man ever has to make—Who to sacrifice.

this should be called book 2.

this book starts up as if the reader has read the prior story. However it is not label this book too. There are many references to past events that do not make sense to a new reader.

Remarkable story narrators and characters

Follow intellect, courage, main character wise beyond his years, intuitive and a fantastic student of his wise older teacher, enable an admiral respected by all. The story is fantastic and I respect the need of this team to break the red tape and get the job done. This needs to be part of our system. Thank you audible as it is free with membership. I will read the entire series.
