Check out the story below . . .

When the people he loves most are in danger, Jon Reznick will get revenge…or die trying.

When black-ops specialist Jon Reznick receives a voice mail from FBI assistant director Martha Meyerstein, hoping to explore their relationship outside of the federal government, Jon starts to imagine a new future, one where he can leave his past behind. But an unhinged killer with a grudge has other plans. He’s setting a trap for Reznick, one he knows the operative won’t be able to resist. In a picturesque fishing village on the Mediterranean coast, a luxury yacht has gone up in flames. Was it a terrible accident or something much more sinister? Jon Reznick must travel overseas, to find out what’s happened to Martha and seek revenge on the psychopath who has put Reznick’s entire future in jeopardy. Jon will need all the help he can get to bring him to justice. Fresh out of Quantico, Reznick’s daughter, Lauren, joins him against his wishes, along with hacker Trevelle Williams. But government operatives from across the globe have descended on this quiet vacation destination and will stop at nothing to prevent the truth from coming out.

Deep State

Where would you head to if you had to disappear? Where would you go if the deep state was after you? If your life was at risk, whereabouts in America could or would you hide?

I couldn’t imagine a better place to disappear than the Florida Everglades. Wild, dangerous, mosquitos, uninhabited, oppressive heat, thousands of small swampy islands over thousands of square miles, remote, and for those with survival skills, a smart place to drop off the grid. But what if the people after you, a team of assassins working for the deep state, have orders to track you down and then kill you, no matter the cost?

What happens then?

That’s the problem Nathan Stone has to deal with in my latest American Ghost thriller, REQUIEM (Thomas & Mercer), out today exclusively on Amazon.

Here’s what you need to know:

Nothing and no one can stop assassin Nathan Stone.

When black-ops asset Nathan Stone took out the heads of the Commission, a secret deep-state organization, he thought he’d destroyed them for good. Now he’s gone off the grid, trying to get as far away from his past as possible. But the Commission isn’t done with him yet.

Lying low in a Miami bar, Stone knows something’s up when an alluring actress strikes up a conversation with him. His suspicions are correct. The Commission is hot on his trail, and Stone is soon forced to run deep into the heart of the Everglades with the terrified woman as his hostage. He’s the Commission’s number one target—and this time nothing will stop them from eliminating him.

But Nathan Stone is no ordinary target. The crew of mercenary assassins on his heels have no idea what’s in store for them on the River of Grass. Because the hunt is on, and they picked the wrong prey.

When an old Delta Force buddy comes to Jon Reznick for help, paranoid and fearing for his life, Reznick feels duty-bound to protect him. As a black-ops specialist, loyalty to his brothers in arms comes before everything—even the law.

But Jerry White proves difficult to protect. A runaway from a top-security psychiatric facility in upstate New York, he’s considered a danger to himself and others, and Reznick is powerless to stop shadowy senior hospital managers taking Jerry back by force. When FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein warns him off, Reznick ignores her advice, suspecting the Wittenden Institute is not what it seems.

Digging deeper into the hospital’s background—and that of its esteemed manager, Dr. Robert Gittinger—Reznick begins to unravel a sinister plot that will bring warzone black ops to American soil. And when his own life comes under threat, he discovers that Jerry is trapped in a web of high-level conspiracies more terrifying than anything he has ever encountered…

Thanks again for all your fantastic support.

The CIA and Hard Fall

Imagine a Kafkaesque nightmare: held against your will, fed drugs, sleep deprived and force fed Orwellian-type instructions from hidden voices in a basement room.

My latest book in the Jon Reznick™ thriller series, Hard Fall (Thomas & Mercer—out 8 February 2018) has the ex-Delta operator confronted by such a scenario.

It begins with Reznick being followed by an old friend and former special forces operative. The man is a suicidal patient who is on the run from a shadowy upstate New York psychiatric facility. The hospital has, unbeknown to the world, resurrected hideous CIA psychological experiments which had been carried out in the 1950s; reactivated again in the 21st century. But it isn’t long before Reznick is drawn into a terrifying conspiracy at the heart of the deep state.

The seeds of this backdrop to my story are, sadly, far from fiction.

It is in fact rooted in one of the darkest episodes of the CIA’s history; mind control experiments which started way back in the 1950s.

In particular, the Agency’s shadowy and illegal MKUltra project.

It was given the go ahead in 1953 by then director, Allen Dulles. Unwitting American and Canadian citizens were experimented on to find out the best drugs to be used in interrogations and tortures.

Among the methods used to change the mental state included using LSD, sensory deprivation and isolation. Some of the unwitting subjects of the experiments were, among others, prostitutes, terminal cancer patients and drug addicts.

According to Sidney Gottlieb, the CIA chemist who introduced LSD to the Agency, they were for “people who could not fight back”.

I wanted my protagonist, Jon Reznick, to fight back on behalf of his friend.

But in doing so, he would be risking not only his life, but also his sanity.

HARD FALL is out on 8 February 2018 (Thomas & Mercer) – here is the tagline and book description:
