Publisher's Summary

The Navy SEALs trained him. The CIA wants him. America needs him. Start the journey with a man hell-bent on revenge, but destined for so much more....

Imagine Mitch Rapp meets James Bond.

The world knows him as a handsome, charismatic, and successful young businessman. The CIA knows Xander as the US military's most legendary soldier, turned vigilante assassin, who sharpens his skills in the shadows until he can exact revenge on the monster that murdered his family. They have watched his double life go on long enough, and now the government wants their weapon back. Xander has different plans.

After a passionate night with Hollywood sweetheart Natalie Rockwell is violently interrupted by a surprise attack at Xander's home, those plans are set in motion. Xander's experts say it's suicide, but with the CIA closing in, he must sidestep them and take the fight directly to his rival. With unlimited resources and unimaginable skills, Xander's enemy will need an army to survive his wrath. Turns out, that's precisely what he has. This is no longer just about revenge, this is war.

If you enjoy Brad Thor, Daniel Silva, David Baldacci, Lee Child, Tom Clancy, Stuart Woods, Nelson DeMille, Ken Follett, Vince Flynn, James Patterson, Tim Tigner, or Clive Cussler, my fans believe you'll have a blast listening to my books as well.

Bad reader

The story is a little lame, but that's easily over looked. My problem is the reader, he makes the characters sound like Yogi & Boobo Bear. I'd like to read the 2nd book but not if read by the same reader. I almost didn't finish this book the reader was so annoying.

Intrigued

A wealth assassin trained by the US military before taking his work to the private sector. He doesn't hire out his services, rather he's all about removing bad guys from the gene pool free of charge. There's something Batman/Punisher like in the premise, though the protagonist seems to have as much fun playing the wealthy playboy as he does with his avenging alter ego. There's room for character development and I'm interested to see where things go with the character in future books.

Story okay

Not a big fan of the odd voices narrator uses for characters other than main character. Everyone sounds the same and with a voice that’s better suited to Hanna Barbera.
