Return of the Soldier
The “Rogue Patriot” series are thrillers for adults set against the modern world of international crime and terrorism. Police and security services can no longer keep pace with new planet-wide outrages.
A new force must be assembled; one that operates outside of the law and fights fire with fire. Sword is that cutting-edge. Led by the inscrutable Socrates, he enlists the services of various agents and assassins from around the world. Each has been ostracised from their own country in one way or another.
Jack Carter is an ex-soldier with a grudge and a list of who he intends to kill. Blade is a female Russian assassin on the run and Dempsey is an ex-CIA operative with the wrong type of conscience. Finally, there is Lei Cheng, a brilliant young hacker from China who made the deadly mistake of putting her country’s secret atrocities on to the internet.
Together, they have found a new home and purpose. They have become Rogue Patriots.
The world is a dangerous place. And it has just got a lot worse. Viktor Volkov, the head of the planet’s largest terror and crime syndicate, Scorpion, has a new client. He titles himself as the “Great Leader of North Korea,” but to most other countries, he is a considered a pariah, a very dangerous pariah.
He wants the world to look up to him and fear him. And to achieve this, he has a plan to infect his enemies with a deadly virus which has no cure. Volkov agrees to help him but sees an opportunity to not only increase his own influence and power, but to destroy his hated enemy, Sword.
Financed by many countries from a black account deep within the United Nations, Sword is the ultra-secret cutting edge in the war against terror. Led by the indomitable Socrates, who has gathered together agents from around the world, who are loyal, but who have been ostracised by their own countries. They have become Rogue Patriots. Blade, an assassin from Russia, Dempsey, ex-CIA agent with a conscience, Lei Cheng, a brilliant young hacker from China and Carter, ex-Special Forces with a grudge and a list of who to kill, all lead the way in the fight against the forces of terror.
With time running out and the virus already released across the planet, can they stop it before large parts humankind are wiped out?
