As tough as Reacher and as smart as Bourne, CJ Brink is a broken hero who comes back from the dead with one thing on his mind—retribution.


A special forces veteran turned VIP bodyguard, CJ has seen it all. But nothing could have prepared him for the ambush in Iraq that left everyone else dead and CJ in a coma. Eight years later he resurfaces, and he wants answers. Someone set them up, but who? The only person who may know is Enya, the sister of the man he was hired to protect. She’s stuck by him throughout his recovery, but like every other player in this dangerous game, she has her own agenda. And the more questions he asks, the bigger the target on his back.


One thing is clear. Someone is afraid of what he knows, and they want him dead. The answers are buried somewhere in his own hazy memory. But can he uncover them before he’s the one buried? Get a sample here.

A Thriller Writer's Bio

Michael was a thriller-writing sensation in his teens, signing multi-book deals with major publishers.


By the age of 21, his spy novels were on the bestseller shelf in bookstores on both sides of the Atlantic, but Michael was different from the other names on that shelf. He was a kid. He’d never been anywhere or done anything, and he wanted a thriller-writer’s bio like those big boys. So he quit writing wild adventures set in far-off places and he lived them instead. Now that bio is complete, he’s back at the keyboard with a new character for a new age.


Michael lives in Spain with his wife Elizabeth, and when he’s not writing his next thriller, he blogs about his life of adventure.


Michael loves to hear from readers and responds personally.So what's on your mind?
