Looking through the optic, you see everything.

Imagination ends.

The convergence of the crosshairs is absolute truth, life and death on your fingertip.

You see some gray in the man’s eyebrows and his eyes are blue with a trace of hazel at the edges. Does he have a wife? Children? Your mind screams with doubt, but you flip a mental switch, severing the indecision.

After inhaling a deep breath, you blow half of it out, and gradually increase the pull on the trigger.

Time expands. Then freezes.

The rifle bucks.

All of your senses are hammered, worst of all your ears. It’s much worse for the man on the other end.

The report crackles off the surrounding buildings, then goes quiet. You don’t want to look, but you must.

As if merely passed out from a drunken stupor, the man is slumped in the chair. His arms are limp, but his lips are still moving.

Is he praying or cursing?

It doesn’t matter.

The job is done.

It’s time to go. . .

The Nathan McBride Series Book 5

When Toby Haynes witnesses a double murder—and suspects his boss, Tanner Mason, as the perpetrator of the crime—he does the only thing he can think of: he calls in Nathan McBride.

CIA special ops veteran McBride and his partner, Harvey Fontana, respond to their friend’s plea. As they launch a covert investigation into Mason, the security chief for one of the nation’s leading private military contractors, they discover that not everything is as it appears. Mason and his inner circle are leading a top-secret operation to tackle a wave of crime plaguing the US-Mexican border, and the murder may have been part of their complicated strategy—or part of a more menacing agenda. Soon McBride and Fontana find themselves engaged in a deadly game. With a powerful politician behind it all, stopping Mason could mean joining a secret war—with truly global stakes.
