Hidden by a terrorist atrocity, the crime of the century goes unnoticed until a victim emerges from a coma and asks the wrong question…


Who set us up? CJ wants answers, but no one gives a damn. He’s a broken hero, easy to write off as a brain-damaged grunt. But that’s a mistake. As the sole-survivor of a brutal hostage-taking, he’s verified as unbreakable, a special forces veteran hardened on the world’s most dangerous streets.


CJ soon has a list of candidates—corrupt politicians, double-dealing spies, even the shady guns-for-hire outfit he used to work for. But sniffing out the truth is not his style. He’s more of a doer than a sniffer. And as he breaks open a mystery that’s stacked like a Russian doll, action explodes, heading for a showdown with a killer twist. The key to it is buried in his bloody past. 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?
