Overview

Only Twelve Shadows Exist And You'll Never Know Who They Are...

Jake Thomas, aka "Backfire," is one of twelve Shadows - a Black Operative whose identity is known only by his Controller and the President of the United States. The Shadow Program has been set up for covert operations directed by the Executive Branch and is shrouded in secrecy. Shadows go to their graves without ever being recognized for their patriotic deeds, and Jake Thomas has certainly had his share of successful assignments:

- Intercepting a sultan suspected of financing terrorism around the globe
- Monitoring a possible government overthrow in Grenada
- Conducting fact-finding missions in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Barbados, and Katmandu
- Investigating the disappearance of American citizens in Lebanon
- Rescuing a fellow operative arrested in East Berlin
- Investigating a human trafficking ring in Florida
- Assisting the Department of Homeland Security with an illegal immigration plot with ties to terrorism

And these are just a few of the missions Jake's career requires of him. His ultimate mission? To stay alive long enough to enjoy going from Shadow to Shade - the government's term for retirement.

    Keeps the Curiosity gesture going

    Better than I anticipated. A constant itch for more information on how the characters would survive their missions. Very interesting overall. Great book for those who serve our country and those who already paid their dues.
