Bestseller Gerard spins off a new series, One-Eyed Jacks, featuring the survivors of a mission gone horribly wrong. Gerard’s name has become synonymous with high stakes and high action adventures that don’t skimp on either the romance or the thrills. A Gerard novel is always worth the time and money invested, and this one is no exception.
It’s the eighth anniversary of the debacle that was Operation Slam Dunk, which cost Mike Brown his career and his friends. So Mike is doing what he always does on the anniversary: getting drunk. However, this year Mike is drugged by a mystery woman with her own set of questions regarding what happened in Afghanistan. CIA Attorney Eve Salinas was sent a secret file. While it blamed Mike for the deaths of his fellow soldiers, it also opened up some questions. Mike accepted the blame for the disaster as a way to save his two surviving friends. He also had no leads as to what really happened. Eve’s file contains the first threads that might allow Mike to uncover the truth. When an assassination attempt is made on them, it becomes apparent they are on the right track. (POCKET, Jan., 416 pp., $7.99)
