This is the first of a four book series about a shadow unit that operates completely independently, without any government or parliamentary oversight. The book is about Victor, a former British Army Sniper with a penchant for violence and a lack of tolerance for authority. The book takes you on a trip from his recruitment straight out of the British Army, to his current mission and beyond. He recalls one of his earliest targets and becomes hunted by the targets sister, one of the best female snipers in Russia, who also kills his best friend. He also meets a girl named Allyson, who he falls deeply in love with. He is dangerously close to having to choose between her, and the only life he has known for over fifteen years. It is a delicate balance trying to be like everyone else when you aren't. What fate does Victor have for both his professional and personal life? Only time will tell.
