National security, terrorism, and human rights these explosive
issues lie at the heart of Stephen Frey s riveting new thriller, a
high-octane novel of suspense, revenge, and intrigue.
Dynamic chief financial officer Michael Rose is looking to add an
exciting and profitable new dimension to energy conglomerate
Trafalgar Industries via the major acquisition of CIS, a global
information technology company. But it s far from a done deal,
thanks to fierce resistance from CIS, and from certain members of
Trafalgar s own board, to Rose s takeover proposal. But Rose isn t
about to sacrifice his best shot at the score that could land him
in the CEO s chair. While swiftly scaling the corporate ladder,
Rose has played the big business power game expertly enough to know
he has the moves to outmaneuver the opposition. But what Rose doesn
t know is the truth about his latest adversaries at CIS that they
are linked to an organization hell-bent on a twisted mission and
are lethal to anyone who stands in their way.
The Order, an ultra-secret shadow government agency, was founded by
high-level administration officials in reaction to the
assassination of President Lincoln. Nearly 150 years later, the
group was galvanized anew by the worst act of terror ever
perpetrated on American soil and pushed to dangerous extremes by
the specter of fear . . . and the taste of power. The Order had
always been sanctioned to manage national security at all costs, by
any and all means, without consequences. But behind the sleek
veneer of CIS Technologies, the fourth and newest incarnation of
The Order not only maintains the ultimate nationwide surveillance
and intelligence-gathering system, but conducts officially licensed
covert operations rife with torture and murder all in the name of
freedom. The mission cannot and will not be jeopardized, even if
innocent lives must be sacrificed. Unfortunately Michael Rose doesn
t yet realize that his hardball tactics have made him the Order s
number one hard target, and his penchant for playing to win has
brought him unwittingly into a deadly duel with an enemy more
powerful than he can imagine. In a world where the rule is kill or
be killed, Rose s rep for sealing deals might just seal his fate.
