Assassinations. Drug running. False flag ops. A shadow paramilitary global network. Synthetic wars. CIA-NATO: A darker truth. Operation Gladio Plan B: Murder.
OG 68-aka Greg McPhearson-no longer works for the company. The hunter has now become prey. He knows this beast: what created him and shattered his soul. Until Mai. When he opened the door to her three years ago, he opened what soul he had left. Yet he belatedly discovers that no amount of pride or power can ever replace one precious breath . . .
When the CIA orders his FBI bosses to call off a sting, Special Agent Ryan Marcello decides to do some digging. He calls in senior analyst Elsie Simon, expert in the Turkey-Central Asian-Caucasus nexus, to help track down the high-level target with ties to ruthless power players in a global narcotics-terrorism ring. Every lead and each new suspect brings them that much closer to home. With Elsie's help, and their lives at stake, the two begin their own investigation . . .
The murdered son of a U.S. mogul leads to the hiring of Ryan and Elsie, who are used and then trapped in a byzantine scheme of retribution: of black ops within black ops, trails gone cold, kidnappings, blackmail, unexplained murders . . . a plot that extends from Russia and Azerbaijan to Cambodia, Vietnam, and is buried inside the Deep State.
For his final mission, in a world where reality now stands on its head-My enemy's enemy is my enemy"-no one would be spared . . . the Gladio would be acting alone.

A tightly knit spy thriller, which challenges the genre and, more broadly, the official backstory behind the "war on terror". A visceral and evocative journey, which stops short of providing you with simple or settling conclusions. This is a fast read as it's frankly quite difficult to put down, but there's an entire subtext waiting to be explored and contemplated once you do. The author, Sibel Edmonds, has cleverly used the medium of fiction to reveal truths, as described in her memoir, Classified Woman, which she discovered working as an FBI translator post 9/11, which the United States government has prevented her from revealing to the public. Contrary to the cheeky disclosure at the beginning of the novel, which in part states that: 'Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, events or locales is entirely coincidental', in this case perhaps fiction is the closest you're going to get to the truth.
THE HERO WINS OUT IN THE END IN THIS BOOK WHICH YOU WILL NEVER FORGET AND SAVE TO READ AGAIN AND MAYBE EVEN AGAIN ! AN ALL TIME FAVORITE.
FBI whistle blower Sibel Edmonds has written a great thriller and you have to wonder how much of it is not merely true but autobiographical. I'd recommend reading first her memoir Classified Woman. I think not only her work for the FBI but her Middle Eastern background give her a greater sensitivity for the machinations of the deep state and its spook minions. People from that part of the world are much more used to being messed with in a nasty way and hence much less naive than the average American who tends toward jingoistic applause with no idea of the evil being applauded.
