The days are long, the nights are hot, and is it just us or are the birds rising earlier than usual this year? It’s summertime, and there’s no better time to escape into a good read! Whether you’re headed to the beach, the park, posting up in your favorite reading chair, or maybe you’re leaving […]
We’ve got money! Guns! Lawyers! More guns, and mercenaries robbing a military contractor. But who is there to foil the plan? Desmond Aloysius Limerick, a retired mercenary. (Ahhh, the life!) Fast, fun and taut — exactly what a thriller should be. True story: this was mailed to a colleague on a Monday, he received it on Tuesday and finished it Wednesday. Believe the hype.
A highly trained team of mercenaries launches a well-planned, coordinated attack on a well-guarded military contractor - but they didn't count on one thing, the right man being in the wrong place at the right time.
Desmond Aloysius Limerick (“Dez” to all) is a retired mercenary, and enthusiastic amateur musician, currently in Southern California, enjoying the sun and sitting in on the occasional gig, when the hotel he's at falls under attack. A skilled team attempts to kidnap the Chief legal counsel of Triton Expeditors, a major military contractor – in fact, Petra Alexandris is the daughter of the CEO – but their meticulously-planned, seamlessly executed scheme runs into the figurative 'spanner-in-the-works,' Dez himself.
After foiling the attack, and with nothing better to do, Dez agrees to help Alexandris with another problem she’s having – someone has embezzled more than a billion dollars from her company and left very few tracks behind. But Dez is a gatekeeper – one who opens doors and keeps them open – and this is just a door of another kind. And the door he opens leads to a dangerous conspiracy involving media manipulation, militias, an armed coup, and an attempt to fracture the United States themselves. There’s only one obstacle between the conspirators and success – and that is Dez, The Gatekeeper.
