ALPHA: A Black Flagged Thriller

“Daniel didn’t want to start over again after a long stretch on the run, so he grudgingly accepted Sanderson’s last minute, seemingly airtight mission, thinking the general would go away afterward. He’d been kidding himself.  Sanderson was up to something big, and it would have swallowed not matter what he had decided.”

A call from someone in his past has Daniel Petrovich on edge.  Taking the job brings him back in to his former life…declining might end up killing him.  Needless to say, things spiral out of control as the U.S. government discovers his identity and pursues him.  He has to escape, leaving his wife behind.  He cannot clear his name if he is dead or behind bars.
