One stolen microchip. Two missions of vengeance. An international manhunt. Trust the wrong person and you’re dead.
Left for dead after assassins killed her parents, Jenna Paterson believes she survived for one reason only. To get vengeance against the men behind the attack, including her once beloved older brother. But first, she has to find him. Her brother stole a microchip containing deadly scientific data from a secret government lab and became the target of an international manhunt.
With no experience outside of training missions, Jenna has no chance of outwitting the deadly agents gunning for her brother. To succeed, she’ll need an experienced and ruthless partner. Someone like Niko Andros.
Niko barely survived his time undercover in the darkest sectors of the criminal underground. But when a Mexican crime lord kidnaps Niko’s aunt and makes the microchip and Jenna’s brother the price of her release, Niko has no choice but to step back into a dangerous role he’d vowed never to play again.
Forced into an uneasy partnership, Niko and Jenna fight to survive in a deadly world of lies, betrayals, and hidden agendas. Only by trusting one another will they succeed in stopping those who would use the data on the microchip to throw the world into chaos.
An innocent woman is caught in the crosshairs of an international manhunt. Can she trust the most wanted man on the planet to save her?
Accused of murder and of stealing a microchip containing deadly scientific research, Kai Paterson is hunted by both governments and criminals. Kai didn’t steal the chip, but his only hope of clearing his name lies in finding the chip before the hunters catch him.
Unfortunately, the chip has been implanted in the body of an innocent woman. Kai isn’t the only one who’s tracked the chip to internationally renowned archaeologist Susana Dias. But he’s the only one who will keep her alive.
Susana is on the cusp of making the most significant discovery of her career when she’s betrayed by those closest to her. Forced to abandon her dig in the Amazon jungle, Susana ends up on the run with Kai.
Kai promises to protect her, but will his promise hold up when it comes time to retrieve the microchip? Removing the chip might kill Susana. But Kai witnessed the horrific effects of the research and knows that the data on the chip must be destroyed.
With the other hunters closing in, Kai races to find a solution that will both save Susana and prevent the data from falling into the wrong hands.
The government is about to unleash a secret weapon against an innocent population. Only one man can stop the destruction. But first, he has to remember…
Rafe Andros and his SSU team are ambushed while investigating a lab suspected of kidnapping men in order to turn them into superhuman soldiers. Forced to become test subjects, Rafe is the only one who survives. But he’s no longer an elite warrior capable of independent thought. Instead, he’s become a mindless killing machine unable to refuse a direct order.
As the shadowy organization behind the lab prepares to demonstrate the destructive power of their enhanced soldiers, Rafe makes it back to the SSU. He knows the details needed to stop the attack. But he can’t remember them…
Rafe’s only hope lies in Gabby Montague, a former scientist at the lab’s front company.
Gabby’s cutting edge research is aimed at helping veterans who suffer from the same mysterious symptoms that killed her father. When she discovers that her data is being used by a hidden program to take away the free will of their subjects, she runs to the SSU.
As the deadline for the demonstration attack approaches, Gabby races to find the right formula to return Rafe’s memories. If she succeeds, Rafe will face the most harrowing mission of his life. If she fails, an army of superhuman soldiers will be unleashed against an innocent population in a plan of retribution taken to deadly extremes.
