An assassin on the brink of destruction. The leader of a global crime syndicate. And the meeting of two fatal enemies...

“Not to be missed by fans of Vince Flynn…” 

—Mark Greaney, #1 NYT Bestselling Author

David Rivers killed the man who betrayed his team.

Now, he’s after the faceless mastermind who gave the order.

To the criminal world, this man is known only as the Handler.

And for the first time, he is within David’s reach.

But in order to get close to the Handler, David must first serve him. This time, the task is new: not to kill a target, but to protect one.

As David negotiates a labyrinth of twisted loyalties in the violent slums of Rio de Janeiro, he realizes that the betrayal of his former teammates was just the beginning.

And nothing in David’s murderous past can prepare him for what happens when he finally meets his greatest enemy face-to-face.

Reader Reviews

Jason Kasper is right up there with Brad Thor and Vince Flynn.

I haven't been so fascinated with a character since I came across Jack Reacher!

Best book I have read in years... Anyone who is bored with predictable action novels should give this a read, it breaks the mold and will restore your faith in the genre.

Kasper knows how to keep a reader guessing, throwing a massive plot twist every time I started to make predictions about the story arc.

The action is fast paced and compares favorably with the writing of Vince Flynn, Mark Greaney, Brad Thor, Ben Coes, or Mark Dawson. I can't wait for his next book!

Jason Kasper has created a superb hero in David Rivers. Fast moving, action packed, great characters. Plot twists keep you on the edge of your seat. What more could you want in a thriller?

Once I started reading, I could not put this book down until I had finished it. This fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled, in-your-face action thriller was the best yet in this series.
