In his black and white world, Sam Bradford–former Marine turned government assassin–finally sees a speck of grey. He has always followed orders without question, but his latest assignment threatens to disrupt the precision of his universe and may either sever or redeem his last remaining sliver of humanity. Explore the dark side of a man living outside of society who has sacrificed all for the greater good of God and Country only to find out he isn’t working for who he thought he was.
Using his mastery of the 122 Rules of Psychology, Sam hunts down everyone. Imagine being able to extract people’s deepest most protected secrets by following a strict set of rules perfected by the most brilliant minds in the nation. Imagine having access to unlimited resources, information, money, and technology. What would you do? Where would you go? Who would you look for? Do you use your power for peace and prosperity, to further the advancement of your fellow man? Or do you use it to increase your own wealth and power by controlling and manipulating everyone around you? Imagine, spending a decade being sent the world over to find people and exploit them for the safety and advancement of your fellow countryman. You are following a path of idealism that is larger than you, larger than anyone. You are doing it for the greater good of God and Country.
The Agency sends him to find enemies of the state and eliminate them. Just as he has his rifle scope focused on his latest victim, an innocent girl entangled with the mob, his long-dormant conscience reappears for a final performance…one last ditch effort to save the sinking ship of Sam’s soul. He’s killed innocents before, but tarries on pulling the trigger this time.
Now imagine that you’re wrong. What you have been told is a lie.

Fond of nearly all things fantasy; the way that fantasy draws you in and enthralls your senses in suspense of disbelief. Of course other genres have this ability too, but none speak to my heart like fantasy and science fiction.
My first love affair with fantasy came to me in an old paperback book left behind by my wayward older sister. It was ‘The Hobbit’ and since then I have been hooked. (I also still own that book!) I did not jump straight into ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy at first and instead picked up C.S. Lewis’ ‘Chronicles of Narnia’, then tried on a somewhat darker lens with Moorcock’s ‘Elric’ series.
