A brand new series created by the undisputed master of the thriller genre.
Reformed from his days of assassination and international conspiracy, Paul Janson has a new mission and a new partner. Working with kickass sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, he helps other disenchanted covert operatives to be rehabilitated and create new lives. He also accepts independent jobs, but only missions he believes will contribute to the greater good. Janson takes the job to rescue a doctor who has been kidnapped by West African rebels during an ambush of an American oil service boat. At first, it appears that the doctor's life was spared in order to treat the rebels' wounded leader Ferdinand Poe, a beacon of hope against a cruel dictator. But when the mission goes haywire, Janson realizes he's in the middle of something much bigger. The puppet dictator has anonymous backers with designs on the oil reserves of this struggling nation - and Janson may find he's been fighting for the wrong side the whole time.
After a successful career in the theatre, Robert Ludlum launched his career as a best-selling writer with THE SCARLATTI INHERITANCE in 1971, the first of twenty-two consecutive international bestsellers. Robert sadly passed away in March 2001. PAUL GARRISON is the author of the critically acclaimed thrillers FIRE AND ICE, RED SKY AT MORNING, BURIED AT SEA, SEA HUNTER, and THE RIPPLE EFFECT. Raised on the stories of his grandfather who wandered the South Seas in the last of the square-rigged copra-trading vessels, he has worked with boats, tugs, and ships. He is currently writing the next novel in the new Paul Janson series.
