Punchy. Edgy. Unmissable. Jason Bourne meets James Bond for teen readers.
He was the perfect assassin. No name. No past. No remorse.
Perfect, that is, until he began to ask questions and challenge his orders. Now The Program is worried that their valuable soldier has become a liability.
And so begins a new mission. A test of sorts. A chance to prove his loyalty.
But nothing about this mission is as it seems: not The Program, his allegiances, nor the truth.
