But someone deliberately blew Dillon’s cover, and his family paid the brutal price. Dillon’s wife, sister and parents—all killed in cold blood. Now a vengeance wilder than the jungles of Colombia drives Dillon to hunt Sanchez down and dispense some personal, one-on-one instruction in all the ways a man can be made to suffer.

But someone who knows about Dillon and his black ops mission continues to undermine him and he’s determined to find the leak, no matter the cost—he is, after all, a man with nothing left to lose. Then Dillon’s “risk everything for the sake of retribution” attitude is shaken when he makes the mind-blowing discovery that his wife is alive. Somehow she survived the explosion the FBI claimed had killed her. Except—she doesn’t want anything to do with him. It’s bad enough that for over a year she kept her survival a secret. But even worse, she has something the SBC wants—something the cartel is willing to kill for. Has Dillon rediscovered the wife he loved more than life itself, only to lose her all over again?
