Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Former Army Ranger Tucker Wayne and his war dog Kane are thrust into a global conspiracy that threatens to shake the foundations of American democracy in this second exciting Sigma Force spinoff adventure from New York Times bestselling authors James Rollins and Grant Blackwood.
Tucker Wayne’s past and his present collide when a former army colleague comes to him for help. She’s on the run from brutal assassins hunting her and her son. To keep them safe, Tucker must discover who killed a brilliant young idealist—a crime that leads back to the most powerful figures in the U.S. government.
From the haunted ruins of a plantation in the deep South to the beachheads of a savage civil war in Trinidad, Tucker and Kane must discover the truth behind a mystery that leads back to World War II, to a true event that is even now changing the world . . . and will redefine what it means to be human.
With no one to trust, they will be forced to break the law, expose national secrets, and risk everything to stop a madman determined to control the future of modern warfare for his own diabolical ends. But can Tucker and Kane withstand a force so indomitable that it threatens our very future?

Breaking Enigma shortened the war and saved hundreds of thousands of lives.” Tucker nodded. He had read as much when he had performed a Google search on the few clues written on Sandy’s boards. “And as I understand it, Turing was arrested by the Brits a few years later.” Jane nodded. “It was
Good. Tucker passed the weapon across to the young man in back. “Shoot through that hole in the back window if any of the others get close,” Tucker instructed him. “But stay low.” Takashi nodded, looking sick, but he rolled with his weapon into position. Turning back around, Tucker reached up and hit the switch for the sunroof. As it opened, he balanced on the passenger seat and rose up through the sunroof.

crush half of the command bunker to ruin. He sat up and discovered Rafael Lyon glowering back at him, a deep gash across the French soldier’s scalp, painting half his face in blood. Karl didn’t look away. Despite the miscue in targeting the bunker—something they could diagnose later—the remaining test of the Warhawk squadron’s capabilities had been an unqualified success. Kellerman should be happy enough with the results to continue with phase three. Or at least, that’s the way I’ll spin it.
