The start of a brand new series from the bestseller author of Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne series.
Black Ops... Dark Arts... A Deadly Conspiracy.
Red Rover, the blackest of black ops teams, is finished – betrayed on a mission to capture and interrogate a mysterious Saudi deep in Pakistan. One of the team was killed, the remaining two barely escaped alive.
Now, the unit has been shut down and Greg Whitman and Felix Orteño are left adrift, wondering what went wrong. Into their midst comes Charlize Daou, a brilliant, wildly talented arms expert, who becomes the reason – and supplies the means – to resurrect their mission.
Disobeying orders, they secretly set out to find the Saudi – the first step in a perilous journey that will lead them to the dark heart of a terrifying conspiracy that threatens to change the balance of power across the globe.
Bestseller Lustbader (The Testament) skillfully blends supernatural horror with a gripping military thriller. When an operation in Pakistan goes wrong for Red Rover, a black-op private security team handling the dirtiest of wet work for the NSA, squad leader Greg Whitman makes it his rogue mission to complete the assignment, despite interference from his superiors, as well as from the Alchemists, an occultist cadre bent on world domination. Whitman turns to a former lover, Charlize "Charlie" Daou, to be the team's armorer; her unorthodox weaponry is an enjoyable change from the usual munitions in such fiction. Felix Orte o, his communications and electronics expert, however, proves to be as much a liability as an asset in the operation. The action builds to a tense showdown with Preach Desmortiers, a bayou shaman who once shepherded Whitman's own mystical powers, at the Well, the arcane subterranean facility where Whitman formerly practiced the black art of torture and interrogation for the Alchemists.
