The Canadian mercenary Rhys Munroe is chafing within his new role; “Dictator” of Equatorial Guinea. A country he has taken by force. Demonized by the press and hated by foreign governments he knows he has an expiry date and should be disappearing. For the first time in his brutal life, he is more than the man in command. Intoxicated with feeling loved and having a purpose, Rhys silences his inner predator. He finds his world shattered by a new enemy; one with tendrils entwined into his closest circles. Forced to fight alone, he realizes the biggest conspiracy is that none exists. The man who is the darkness within the shadow must do battle with the deadliest shadow of all; a secret society of elite… The New World Order.
A little more about the story. Set in the present day we meet Rhys Munroe in his Presidential home in Equatorial Guinea several months after the failed prison break and successful coup released the country from an oppressive regime. Living in paradise is not all Rhys believed it would be. He is out of sync with his world, yet happier than he has ever been. It is the life he always wanted and believed he could never have. He knows he must make a choice and chooses not to. In this delay, the decision gets made for him. The man that rises from the ash of his destroyed world is a different Rhys. “The man that stares down leopards” crosses the Rubicon of revenge, culminating in a collision with the elusive world government. In his path, he lays waste to those in his way and punishes the people who stood idle. Using today’s high-tech and the Dark Web he moves through a post Snowden security conscious world. Stalking his prey through Russia, with its still forbidden cities, and ancient Thailand on his way to America and the ultimate battle. All the while being pursued by the official police and “those that hunt the hunters.”
