The Patriot Paradox
Ex-CIA analyst, Kurt Vetter is no stranger to tragedy and loss. Swearing off any connections to a life he once lead, he retreats to South America–on a self-imposed exile. But when he receives a mysterious package of encrypted files from his dead brother, he’s drawn back into a dangerous world of treason and espionage–a world he swore he’d left behind for good.
It’s up to Kurt to uncover the message that his brother was desperate to convey–a message that could be the difference between life and death. When the files lead him across the world, he encounters Amanda Carter, an enigmatic woman linked directly to his brother, who just might have the information he needs to decipher what’s hidden inside the files. Together, they uncover a plot far bigger than anything he ever anticipated–a rogue CIA mission to detonate a nuclear bomb.
But with time running out and his brother’s assassins closing in, Amanda and Kurt must face this alone. With millions of innocent lives at stake, they race against the clock to stop the attack. If they fail, the results could be explosive.
Still bruised and battered from his most recent mission, ex-CIA analyst, Kurt Vetter is forced into service once again after hackers launch a devastating cyber attack on the US warning system, threatening an all-out nuclear confrontation.
While teaming up again with Amanda Carter and investigating the security breach, Kurt discovers that Russian Intelligence has compromised the National Military Command Center. Meanwhile, a notorious and dangerous arms dealer is set to begin peddling stolen nuclear warheads on the black market. But can Kurt juggle both crises without catastrophe striking?
When a routine trip to China turns disastrous, Kurt Vetter finds himself amidst a series of attacks on civilian targets that plunges the country into anarchy. Forced to take his team to the war-torn streets of Beijing, Kurt searches for the Chinese double agent who could very well be behind the violence and destruction–or know who is.
Just as Washington gets sidelined from heroic reaction, Kurt uncovers the mastermind behind China’s mass destruction. But when the conflict spreads further, beyond China’s borders, Kurt and his team realize the threat is bigger and more dangerous than they ever thought. With every second counting, it’s a race to end the conflict before the clock runs out…
All ex CIA-analyst Kurt Vetter wants is some peace and solace after facing loss after loss. But fate has other plans for this reluctant hero. Danger and destruction pull him back into a world he thought he left long ago. Teaming up with Amanda Carter, an enigmatic woman of strength and confidence, they take on perilous and death-defying missions in this three-book Reluctant Hero Series.
Grab on to your seats and enjoy the thrilling and exhilarating global adventure as Kurt and Amanda clash with traitorous CIA operatives and hunt down notorious nuclear arms dealers — all while preventing the world from descending into anarchy at the hands of a crazed madman.
