To atone for the sins he committed serving his country, ex-covert government agent Paul Janson is determined to save the world: one person, one mission, one redemption at a time.


Paul Janson-a former Consular Ops legend known as "The Machine" for his deadly speed and accuracy-has a new mission. Sickened by the "sanctioned serial killings" ordered by the state department, Janson has left covert operations and is now a private security consultant. In partnership with deadly sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, he only takes assignments that he believes will lead to the greater good.

When American Synergy Corporation oil executive Kingsman Helms begs Janson to rescue his wife, Allegra, from Somali pirates, Janson and Kincaid view it as the perfect opportunity to infiltrate ASC and disrupt the company's scheme to subvert independent oil-rich African countries into wholly-owned ASC subsidiaries.

Once on the ground, Janson and Kincaid discover that the pirates may be the least lethal threat in the violent chaos of anarchic Somalia. Is Allegra's kidnapping for real, or is she merely a pawn in her husband's machinations for control of the country? Janson and Kincaid quickly find themselves embroiled in a bewildering storm of plots and counterplots, and their fight to survive threatens to disrupt the entire region, and beyond...

While the topic (pirates) is over used I found the story pretty engaging and it was very interesting how their initial plan for rescue fails. It also seemed to move the Janus storyline forward.

I have grown weary of Somali pirate based stories, especially combined with lack of creativity pinned in this story. This is little more than a rehash of stories and battles read before. 0 of 10 stars
