Dustin Stevens Standalone Novel
In occupied Germany in 1942, the young son of a Russian diplomat is picked up by the SS police, never to be seen again. In present day Washington, D.C., an employee stands before the controlling board of his company and makes a pitch that will either make or end his career. In Boston Harbor, shipments of high-end automobiles bound for Italy and containers of refugees inbound from Cuba continue to go missing.
At the center of everything stands Thorn Byrd, a recent college graduate just twenty-two years old. Plucked away from the life he had planned and thrust into one he never knew existed, he is forced to decipher who is behind the sinister plot unfolding around him and the global implications it holds.
Aiding in his journey are the combined forces of the Cuban and Irish cartels, both of which have lost a great deal of face and are seeking revenge, along with a brother/sister pair desperate to find a lost family member. Opposing them are a conglomerate with ties reaching back to the Second World War and bent on righting wrongs seventy years in the making.
Armed only with his instincts and the help of those around him, Thorn must determine who to trust and what to do before it is too late.
The hero in this book is very real and a true hero, as worthy of respect and love as the villain is worthy of pity and fear. Well written, terrific character development, exciting, fast moving plot and just ending. The author keeps you on the edge of your chair. He also leaves you feeling that although at times there were sad outcomes, that justice was done in big and small ways. This is the first book by Dustin Stevens that I have read, but it won't be the last! Thank you Mr. Stevens, keep them coming.
