A FIGHT HE DID NOT START
Alec Goulding is a retired army militant with an exceptional set of skills that has given him a name in the country. He is considered a national hero in his country due to his efforts and success in taking down the government in the Talienkian Civil War.
Having retired, Alec does not want to rejoin the force or work for the government. He now works with his father in a local coffee shop, minding his own business. All is fine until the Talienkian Army General summons him for help.
A WAR HE HAS TO FINISH
The government needs him to locate and eliminate a kingpin in a rival country, who has unknowingly accessed secret information and is now blackmailing the government. They want to send Alec alongside an espionage team consisting of his old friends to end the war before it erupts.
Traumatized from his last mission, Alec does not want to take the offer. He has already almost lost his father in the crossfire, and he was not ready to do it again. Until he realizes he's in a war of his own.
And now the fight that he did not start becomes the war he has to finish.
