Operation Freedom : It was only a matter of time. Time until the Reapers outbreak began. Time until the City of Philadelphia was locked in a fight to the death to keep from being overrun. It’s taking every member of the armed forces and police to battle the Reapers and it’s a battle they appear to be losing.
SWAT Sergeant Vince Black and his team are assigned a new desperate mission: To travel through Reaper infested neighborhoods into the heart of the city and rescue the Governor’s daughter, who is trapped without food or water there. Can Black and his team complete this suicide mission and live to see the next day?
Note: -This book was previously released in Nicholas Sansbury Smith’s Extinction Cycle universe. I have chosen to rewrite this book and republished it as part of my own “Wretched” series universe.
-This novella can be read-alone but might be better enjoyed if read after “Wretched Culling”.
“And that’s different from how many other neighborhoods?” SWAT Corporal Michael “Spags” Spagonelli asked. “We’re cops, not the army. Unless we get some additional fucking help from the National Guard or one of the armed forces, I don’t see how much longer we’re going to hold this city.”
“Knock it off,” Black yelled. “I don’t want to hear anymore bellyaching. We’ll do our jobs as long as we have to.”
“Like it or not, we have a lot of people counting on us right now,” Harrison said. “Take a walk around the station. Some of you have your families here. Do you want to tell them that you can’t keep them safe? That they’d be better off on their own?”
There was a smattering of “No’s” and shaking heads.
“Now, I’m not going to lie to you boys,” Harrison said. “It does sound like a shitty mission. But I think if you get your heads on straight, you can pull this off.”
Black cleared his throat. “I’m ready, Sarge.”
Harrison chuckled. “Yeah, I’d expect as much from you, Black.”
“Any word on the National Guard or Army?” Black asked. “Has the governor activated them yet?”
