What if DNA led you to discover your mother was the vice president — and a murderer?

Jacob Stearne can't remember who shot him. He wakes up with amnesia obscuring the events of recent weeks. Both his girlfriend and his boss have vanished. With his dream of starting a family crushed, Jacob decides to hang up his Glock and find a job less deadly. That doesn't stop a former president from demanding that he find Pia Sabel. He refuses. But his past catches up with him when four assassins stop by intent on ending his life.

The twists in Seeley James stories are better than Steve Berry, Tom Clancy, or John Sandford — David Gormer

Pia isn't lost. She's dropped off the grid to get her mental health under control. While chilling on the French Riviera, curiosity gets the better of her. When she traces a clue back to an art gallery, she decides to focus her energy on annihilating the toxic American president back home. Still plagued by self-doubt, events quickly overwhelm her. To unravel the evidence, she must join a cabal of international oligarchs, all of whom kill to stay at the top.

You can feel them facing evil, staring it in the face and saying, "Bring it on!" — Ann Graham

Can Pia and Jacob expose the president before competing factions dismantle the nation's balance of power and destroy the USA?

About the Author

His near-death experiences range from talking a jealous husband into putting the gun down to spinning out on an icy freeway in heavy traffic without touching anything. His resume ranges from washing dishes to global technology management. His personal life stretches from homeless at 17, adopting a 3-year-old at 19, getting married at 37, fathering his last child at 43, hiking the Grand Canyon Rim-to-Rim several times a year, and taking the occasional nap.

His writing career ranges from humble beginnings with short stories in The Battered Suitcase, to being awarded a Medallion from the Book Readers Appreciation Group. Seeley is best known for his Sabel Security series of thrillers featuring athlete and heiress Pia Sabel and her bodyguard, veteran Jacob Stearne. One of them kicks ass and the other talks to the wrong god.

His love of creativity began at an early age, growing up at Frank Lloyd Wright’s School of Architecture in Arizona and Wisconsin. He carried his imagination first into a successful career in sales and marketing, and then to his real love: fiction.

Pia and Jacob discover a clinical death trap and have to travel to many countries to solve this case. They also have a mole in their company causing them more problems. Exciting story.

another great book in the series. If I could afford it, I'd buy more books. I enjoy the action, and human interaction of the characters (flaws & all)
