From David Morrell, bestselling author of First Blood, Assumed Identity, Extreme Denial, and Burnt Sienna, comes a spectacular thriller that takes the reader beyond the limits of suspense....


Savage is a former Navy SEAL and state-of-the-art security specialist. Teaming up with him is Akira, Japan's most brilliant executive protector and a samurai master. Their mission: to rescue Rachel Stone, a beautiful American woman who faces destruction at the hands of her ruthless billionaire husband.
Savage and Akira quickly realize they are trapped in a mission more far-reaching than saving one woman. For they are bound to each other by a set of horrifying memories, a terrifying past that never happened. And only together can they confront the nightmare. Yet when they do, an even more chilling scenario awaits them - one with the power to shatter not only their world but ours as well.

Another excellent book from Morrell. Here he examines the life of a professional body guard, and it isn't like the Whitney Huston-Kevin Costner movie! Morrell did his research at G. Gordon Liddy's training school for bodyguards. It's not for the faint of heart. This book is another fast paced, edge-of-your seat read by Morrell and was a great read! Couldn't put it down!
