Radical Measures: The Art Dodek Series: A Thriller by R. J. Hepner
NSU agent Art Dodek is assigned to investigate the death of a Saudi-Canadian couple in Montreal and the theft of 1,500 pounds of silver bullion. In no time he's embroiled with a Lebanon bank and two in the U.S. alleged to funnel fraudulent money transfers to the notorious Hezbollah terror organization and drug cartels. Twice, assassins almost take him down. His real life and death struggle occurs when his former Israeli Intel instructor asks him to infiltrate Hezbolla. His mission goes terribly wrong. A so-called asset betrays him; he's imprisoned, beaten, starved and tortured by Taliban fanatics. He must fight his way out. But weakened, unarmed, his attempts fail with disastrous results. What happened has left a scar that may never heal. How can he fulfill his mission when every turn dashes his attempt to escape?
