by G. A. Jamin

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Michael is on the run. He’s far from the protective cordon of his dogs and security team, and a killer is stalking him. A lone teenage hiker on the Appalachian trail, Michael carries in his backpack a fake driver’s license, a deck of cards, and a stolen gun. Cold weather is approaching and his gambling winnings are depleted. He needs a job and a safe place to hide for the winter. He detours to a small town where he meets the mysterious Mr. Jerry and Darwin, his Afro-Israeli bodyguard. Michael accepts Mr. Jerry’s job offer, but soon an avalanche of secrets begin to be busted. Michael learns that his new boss is hiding with a witness protection program alias and that he owns-along with his mother-in-law from hell- the nefarious BlackBox Corporation. When Darwin quits to seek his fortune, Michael joins him as a security contractor on an oil tanker. Darwin teaches Michael the martial arts, including the use of his ancient harpoon, but Michael has his own practical skills. Together, they confront drug dealers, assassins, biker gangs, card cheats, gunrunners, terrorists, pirates, nuclear proliferators, cheapskates, and bastards. Their adventures take them from a Manhattan jail to an Iranian nuclear plant and, finally, to Central America to confront the killer who started it all.
