He didn’t want to be a hero. He just wanted revenge.
He was. So. Close.
After years of watching international arms dealer Heinrich Dietrich elude capture despite a growing body count, rogue black ops agent Max Lansing has tracked Dietrich to West Africa. Finally, Max will get revenge for the attack that critically injured his brother.
But that’s where Max’s luck runs out. He becomes the hunted one when Dietrich sends a vicious group of local rebels after him. Believing they’ve spotted Max, the rebels attack a group of American tourists. Guilt ridden because he knows he was the target, Max grabs the sole survivor, determined that no more innocents will die.
Former prima ballerina Emily Iwasaki watches in horror as everyone in her dance group is gunned down by the rebels. She’d been promised that this part of West Africa was safe. The dance tour had seemed a perfect opportunity to both raise awareness for war orphans and get back the sense of purpose she’d lost after the abrupt end of her dance career.
Instead, she’s on the run with Max, the rebels hot on their heels.
But more than Max and Emily’s survival is at stake. A plane carrying a new weapon of mass destruction has gone down in the nearby jungle. Max and Emily must find the plane and the weapon before Dietrich does, or he’ll sell the weapon to the rebels and thousands will die.
Max doesn’t want to play babysitter, and he certainly doesn’t want the fate of West Africa on his shoulders. But with Emily proving to be a surprisingly skilled partner, Max sees a chance of both saving the day and getting his revenge.
First, though, they must outrun the rebels and survive the deadly hazards of the jungle.
