The Executioner's Gameby Gary Hardwick
"Luther Green is the very best at what he does. But the mastery of his profession is nothing he can brag about. It's nothing for which he will ever be officially recognized and it will never earn him a large paycheck. But there is a high likelihood that Luther's proficiency at his job will get him killed."

"Luther Green is the very best at what he does. But the mastery of his profession is nothing he can brag about. It's nothing for which he will ever be officially recognized and it will never earn him a large paycheck. But there is a high likelihood that Luther's proficiency at his job will get him killed." "Luther Green is a government assassin. For more than a decade, he has traveled the world, surgically eliminating America's enemies, never questioning his orders while performing as reliably as death itself. But his new assignment threatens to change all that. Luther's superiors have designated his new target as Alex Deavers - the agent who taught Luther everything he knows and a man now considered to be a rogue agent on the edge of insanity." "As Luther seeks to uncover the clues that will lead him to his prey, he slowly realizes that Alex is on a mission of his own, playing a cat-and-mouse game with his former apprentice while setting in motion a plan that could kill millions. Luther begins to suspect that the only person who can give him the answers he needs is the psychotic madman he has been ordered to execute." Luther follows a perilous trail that takes him into the most dangerous territory he has ever encountered. He is just a pawn in a twisted chess match, but a pawn may transform itself into the game's most dominant weapon. Now he has just days to learn the rules and employ all of his skill and training to find the truth. But to defeat the deadly forces against him, Luther Green must win the most dangerous game of all.

American Secretary of Commerce Donald Howard witnesses first hand the devastation of AIDS has had on Africans while visiting the continent. He also receives some intriguing but volatile information on the Kennedy assassination that paints quite a different picture than that of the official one. Not long afterward, Donald and his Secret Service agent Alex Deavers die when their vehicle is blown up.--- CIA Director Kilmer Gray assigns his top assassin rogue agent Luther Green to kill Deavers who apparently somehow survived the blast, probably set the bomb, and remarkably is not even Secret Service. Luther goes after his former mentor in the manner that Deavers trained him to be, professional at all times, though he has doubts that his teacher committed the act. He trails his prey through east coast cities, but seems to be always too late until they meet up in Luther¿s hometown of Detroit where the student¿s family and friends are pawns in a world of spies.--- This exciting espionage thriller stars two interesting rogues in a game of cat and mouse in which readers do not know which one is the feline and which one is the rodent. Neither Luther nor Alex generates reader empathy as both seem better suited for field work. The action-packed story line does not offer anything new within the literary world of spy vs. spy, but still grips the audience from start to finish as if a non-stop heavyweight championship between two real contenders is heading to the final round with the loser probably counted out for life.--- Harriet Klausner
THE EXECUTIONER¿S GAME is a taut and suspenseful action adventure, at the heart of which is an insidious plot hatched by unscrupulous overseers of the military-industrial complex. Utilizing his considerable talent as a mystery writer, Gary Hardwick has crafted an intriguing, exhilarating, and provocative espionage tour-de-force that rivals the best offerings of Robert Ludlum, John le Carre, Tom Clancy, and Nelson DeMille. His concise, crisp narrative propels the reader briskly through this fast-paced and thoroughly entertaining political thriller for the 21st Century. Hardwick delivers the goods.
