A deep-state US organization has a top-secret kill list—and a popular senator is on it.
Nathan Stone was killed in action while serving as a covert CIA operative. Or so everyone thought. In reality he’s become a ghost, a black-ops asset with a new identity and controlled by a secret government organization. The Commission has one aim: to hunt down and assassinate anti-establishment enemies of the state.
Its number-one target is Senator Brad Crichton, an ambitious politician with growing support. Stone is ready to take him out, but his plan is soon compromised when the Commission’s kill list is leaked to a journalist—whose own name is on the list too. And when the journalist tries to alert the senator, he is found dead in suspicious circumstances. Stone is closing in on Crichton, but must act swiftly to reach him before the truth does.
He knows that one wrong foot will put him in the firing line. But where national security is at stake, the hunter can quickly become the hunted.

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It also nearly got my 3 star rating when traveling from Poland into the US was described. It might be one thing to travel around the EU with EU passports, but the author should try something like that with a Polish passport today. He will have time for another series while in detention for deportation if he is lucky.
I have filled 8 passports during my nearly 30 years traveling the world. Suffice to say I know travel and I have watched it change over 3 decades. I was waiting in anticipation to see how the main character would get back into the US. That didn't cut it for me. Also the author has a very mistaken belief that it's easy to disappear in London. If there is any city in the world where you can be found by authorities it is London. It's camera coverage is unbelievably extensive and facial recognition algorithms are far too advanced to be fooled by facial hair.
So this bOK skimmed through on the skin of it's teeth to my 4 star rating and I am willing to give the next in the series a try. Hopefully the author takes some tips from me here about cities and entering the US. I too have a British passport and that is one thing, but a Polish knockoff? I don't think so. Nonetheless I recommend this book for an easy evening read.
Three incidents in the story ruin it for me:
1. AN EMP rifle small enough to fit in a backpack?!?! There isn't a chance in Hell. But even if it was true, and the accuracy was capable of delivering a pulse of sufficient quality and strength to cause a heart attack, it would have caused severe burns on the skin.
2. Scaling a sheer cliff with broken ribs only two days ago isn't possible even with the best drugs available!
3. And I feel this is the worst stretch of the imagination is the Fentanyl grenades. This is total BS! Fentanyl would kill almost all people who are exposed. If inhaled, virtually instantly, but it would also be absorbed by the body's skin.
I enjoy a good book and admire an active imagination, but keep it somewhat believable!
