Overview

When Rory Callum walked into Kuwait, barely alive and the only survivor of an ill-fated Special Forces operation preceding the shock and awe phase of the second Gulf War, his lack of memory and the violent, unresolved murder of his colleagues ensured that, for Rory, his Special Forces days were over.

Some years later finds Rory working for Max on the edge of the law, often straying across it, as an undercover industrial spy, inserting himself as an agency worker to discover what next year's cornflakes marketing strategy is, or the launch details of a new promotion. However, his new task is more involved; a deep insertion into Korbins to find out what their new, secret discovery is.

Groomed and primed by the gorgeous but sexually disturbed and violently dangerous Melinda, who can manipulate identities and histories effortlessly, Rory finds himself employed as a trainer in Korbins and begins a process that results in him being targeted by murderous hired thugs, being chased by the Secret Service determined to understand what happened in Iraq years earlier and as an unwitting pawn for Fabin, a seriously complicated and evidently mad scientist in a fast paced and violent story that reaches all the way up to the offices of the British Prime Minister.

In the hard-hitting and complex ending Rory finds his memories released as he races to defeat Fabin and his ex Royal Marine employee, Ron Danvers.

This hard-hitting and complex story of revenge is based in the near future but heavily underpinned by the events leading up to the second Gulf War, which forms a significant back story. The pace is relentless and fast flowing as the truth behind the missing weapons of mass destruction debacle is revealed.

Meet the Author

Ray Sullivan was born in Flint, north Wales. Just before his 21st birthday he joined the Royal Air Force as an airframe mechanic, intially on a three year term which stretched to twenty four years, that saw Ray posted around the UK, Cyprus, Germany and the Falkland Islands working on various aircraft types ranging from the venerable Hawker Hunter to the battlefield horse, the Chinook.He spent the second half of his military career in the technical training environment, as an instructor, training manager and finally as a project engineer on innovative engineering projects. It was during this period that Ray started to write - initially producing a 2 hour comedy script based on the X Files TV series and a series of short stories. Some of these stories were later revisited and morphed onto full-blown novels, and although the TV script never saw the light of day it proved a useful training ground in writing. In all of Ray's work he has drawn heavily on his military experiences and generally includes a serving or ex serving character to drive his plots forward.Since leaving the RAF Ray has worked in various project roles and has experienced extended periods away from home, periods that provided the time and opportunity to develop his writing style, ultimately producing four full length novels plus a comedic novella to date plus a number of novels that are work in progress.His first full novel, Parallel Lives, based on a short story written in 2000, was completed in 2004. Ray's second novel, The Journeymen, grew out of a short story written in 2002 and completed as an unrecognisably related novel in 2005. The third novel, Skin, was completed in 2007 and his fourth novel, DLF (listed as 'Digital Life Form on Smashwords and affiliated sites such as Apple) was published in 2011. Ray's first foray into comedic writing, The Last Simple, was published at the end of 2011 after being serialised on his blog three times a week for three months.Ray's latest book, Project:Evil, is now available.All of Ray's books are available on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Apple iBookstore and other channels in formats suitable for most eReader devices.Ray is currently working on a couple of projects included the sequel to The Journeymen.Ray can be emailed on raysullivan.novels@yahoo.com
