Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of the classic espionage novel, The Brotherhood of the Rose . . .

He calls himself Cavanaugh. No first name, and even “Cavanaugh” isn’t his actual last name. He’s a protector. His hatred of bullies compelled him to enlist in Special Forces. Now as a civilian, he operates Global Protective Services, the world’s finest security company. His goal: to keep predators from their prey.

Following Cavanaugh’s missions in The Protector and The Naked Edge, Rambo-creator David Morrell presents three short stories that explore the psychology of a warrior compelled to risk his life for strangers. “Most people muddle through their lives,” Cavanaugh tells a client. “All I can do is hope that if I keep them from dying a while longer, maybe they’ll find a way to justify remaining alive.”

In “Blue Murder,” Cavanaugh matches wits with an assassin determined to kill a bestselling female novelist. In “The Controller,” Cavanaugh and his wife, Jamie, confront the dilemma of how to protect a billionaire who refuses to take advice. In “The Attitude Adjuster,” they discover that the Internet can be as dangerous an enemy as a stalker.

This collection includes an introduction in which Morrell describes his training as a protective agent.

    Highly Recommended

    Cavanaugh may be Mr. Morrell's most interesting character since Rambo. These short stories will leave you wanting more.
