About this ebook

A veteran of an experimental military force is drawn back into service to save his family in this “smart and well-plotted thriller” series debut (Marc Cameron, New York Times bestselling author of Brute Force).

To a trio of muggers, Tony “Red” Harmon looks like just another suburban dad. But when they demand his wallet at knifepoint, something snaps. In the blink of an eye, two muggers are dead, the third severely injured, and Red doesn't remember a thing. Once an elite member of the Det, a secret forces outfit whose existence is beyond classified, Red thought his active service was over. But now his memory is coming back—and a killing machine is returning to duty . . .

Facing an unthinkable nuclear threat, a volatile international power play, and a personal attack against his family, Red has no choice. He must rejoin his old team, infiltrate the enemy camp, and complete the biggest mission of his life . . .

"If you're looking for suspense, nonstop action, and a hero you can root for, The Red Ops series will clean your X ring."- David Poyer, USA Today bestselling author of Tipping Point and Onslaught
