False Flag : They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
But Jason Trapp is losing his taste for it. For six months, his personal crusade has taken him around the world, mopping up the last of the Bloody Monday conspirators. There’s only one left, and after the crooked financier Emmanuel Alstyne meets his maker, Trapp’s debt will be paid in full. He vows he’s done with the business of death.
Unfortunately, it isn’t done with him.
After a simple kill mission goes sideways in Macau, leaving a CIA spy kidnapped, half a dozen Chinese agents dead, and America’s satellites burning in the skies, Trapp is propelled back into the game. Eliza Ikeda was taken on his watch, and he’s determined to get her back–no matter the cost. The problem is, he has no idea who took her, why, or what they plan to do next.
Trapp knows he’s being played. And with the world’s only two superpowers hurtling toward the precipice of war, time is running out…
Retirement will have to wait.
Trapp is back in action. And this time, it’s personal.
“No. The little boy resolved that whatever he managed to steal today, he would not share it.
It wasn’t always like that, a thought at the back of his mind reminded him. You shared. Your mother is only looking out for you.
But then the red mist of anger descended on the boy’s vision. It was his mother’s fault he was in this place at all. She was the criminal, but he was the one getting punished.
Ahead of him, several trucks came to a halt, with a Jeep at the front of the small procession. They were painted in army green. Soldiers packed the first of the trucks, and terrified, frozen prisoners the last three.
“Get out!” a guard screamed.
His bayonet was fixed to his rifle. The boy knew what was about to happen. He had seen this story play out dozens of times over his short life.
The prisoners shuffled out of the truck, and the boy dropped to his knees, pretending to be searching the ground for insects. Lifting frozen stones and searching fruitlessly underneath. All the prisoners did this. It was the only way they had to survive. Even rats couldn’t live long in a place like this.”
