Special Agent Allison McNeil is asked by beleaguered FBI Director Clarence Mason to run an off-the-record investigation of the murder because of the murder's similarity to a case she worked a year earlier. Allison knows the most direct path to apprehending the killer is to find the videos, but the rumors that the victim's client list may have included Mason's political enemies has her worried about the director's motives. As she starts her investigation, she quickly discovers that she's not the only one pursuing the videos. In fact, the most aggressive person racing against her might be the murderer himself.
Even so, Jack must find the courage to lead his friends into battle. Either they collect the Stones in time to defeat Ren Lucre or die trying. It’s "Do your duty, come what may" no matter the cost. The fate of the world hangs in the balance.
Seriously, this book is not meant for you. By reading it, you run the risk of attracting monsters to your position and being attacked. So, unless you are willing to join the fight...just walk away.
Still here? OK, don't say I didn't warn you. Let me introduce myself. I'm Jack Templar and I'm an orphan.
Recently, I discovered that I came from a long line of monster hunters. You know, vampires, werewolves, zombies, you name it. Turns out there was some kind of truce between monsters and the hunters that kids under fourteen were off-limits. I didn't find out about all this until the day before my birthday. Yeah, you guessed it, my fourteenth birthday. So, all bets were off. The monsters were coming to get me.
Not only that, but I also found out that if monsters around the world could choose one human to kill, it would be me. Why? I haven’t a clue, but the hunters I've met talk about a prophecy and that they think I'm the One...whatever that means. I’d like to find out some day, but for right now, I’m just trying to stay alive.
If you want to hear a story that will scare you, gross you out and forever change the way you look at the world around you, then you came to the right place.
But, if you want to keep the illusion that the world is a safe and orderly place, then get out of here and stop wasting my time.
Do your duty, come what may.
"Gunhus brings young readers a monster-filled romp...complete with action, cliff-hangers and surprise reveals."
Jacobslav Scarvan is supposed to be dead. Once a ruthless assassin for the KGB, he went too far when he burned a family alive for the sheer pleasure of it—and became a target himself. Both the CIA and Russian intelligence wanted him eliminated. CIA agent Scott Roberts was the man to do it. Three bullets should have been enough to kill Scarvan. But it only forced the rogue agent deeper underground—to places that will forever haunt him . . .
Twenty years later Scott and his daughter Mara are working for the US president, using their joint experience to form an elite Alpha Team of highly skilled operatives. Their mission is to hunt down and destroy the apocalyptic shadow organization known as Omega. But when they learn that Scarvan is still alive—plotting revenge after undergoing a twisted radicalization that makes him more dangerous than ever—Scott and Mara must race across the globe to prevent an epic disaster. This time, when the clock runs out, the end times begin . . .
“With an alpha female heroine and a tantalizing premise, this hard-edged, gripping thriller matches wits and wiles, delivering an entertaining romp.”—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author on Silent Threat
