Now he's been returned to the United States with a covert mission: to kill a candidate for US President.Shaw's former commanding officer, Major Bennett Marco, is the only one who knows his secret. And he must untangle a complex thread of lies, betrayal, and murder to uncover the truth of a conspiracy that goes all the way to the top of the US government—before it's too late.
