CJ Brink is an unlikely vigilante. Outwardly, he’s a broken hero—damaged goods, haunted by macabre visions. But as the sole-survivor of a brutal terrorist hostage-taking, he’s road-tested as unbreakable and driven by a promise to the dead and by troubling questions. Like who tipped off the terrorists?


There are plenty of candidates—corrupt politicians, double-dealing spies, even the shady guns-for-hire outfit he used to work for.


CJ wants answers, but all he gets is trouble. That’s not so bad. He’s a special forces veteran, an ex-bodyguard in the world’s most dangerous streets. Trouble is his specialty. And as he uncovers a mystery stacked like a Russian doll, action explodes, heading for a showdown with a killer twist. The key to it is a cipher buried in his addled brain. But with his life pinned to a target, can he survive long enough to dig it out? 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?
