Robert Ludlum's The Janson Option (Janson Series #3) by Paul Garrison

To atone for the sins he committed serving his country, ex-covert government agent Paul Janson is determined to save the world: one person, one mission, one redemption at a time.


Paul Janson—a former Consular Ops legend known as "The Machine" for his deadly speed and accuracy—has a new mission. Sickened by the "sanctioned serial killings" ordered by the state department, Janson has left covert operations and is now a private security consultant. In partnership with deadly sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, he only takes assignments that he believes will lead to the greater good.

When American Synergy Corporation oil executive Kingsman Helms begs Janson to rescue his wife, Allegra, from Somali pirates, Janson and Kincaid view it as the perfect opportunity to infiltrate ASC and disrupt the company's scheme to subvert independent oil-rich African countries into wholly-owned ASC subsidiaries.

Once on the ground, Janson and Kincaid discover that the pirates may be the least lethal threat in the violent chaos of anarchic Somalia. Is Allegra's kidnapping for real, or is she merely a pawn in her husband's machinations for control of the country? Janson and Kincaid quickly find themselves embroiled in a bewildering storm of plots and counterplots, and their fight to survive threatens to disrupt the entire region, and beyond...

Paul Janson, a former consular ops agent has started his own private security consultant. He and his company has done some work for American Synergy Corporation, leaving him with a bad taste in his mouth, but then a president of one of the company's divisions calls him because his wife has been kidnapped aboard a yacht in the Indian Ocean. He asks Janson to rescue his wife and does not want to depend on the forces that have already gathered to protect shipping from pirates. As Janson collects his number two, Jessica Kincaid, it seems that things begin to unravel. Is someone out to kill the husband? Who could be out gunning for Janson? Does the oil in Somali and the Sudan have anything to do with the kidnapping? What about the political unrest in Somali? All of these figure into the case and then there is the in-fighting that is going on inside of ASC to see which division president will become the president. There are a lot of people pulling strings and it all makes the job of Janson and Kincaid that much more difficult. We see how an experienced agent uses the assets he has collected during his career to get answers in this case. Janson also uses modern technology to help him sift through all of the information coming into him. I found it to be a fascinating book and I look forward to more Janson stories in the future.
