Alex Kalfas, now Justice Minister in the cabinet of the Greek government, the son of the CIA liaison to MI6, and a CIA sleeper himself, has led a sheltered life until today. But his peaceful world is about to change into a world of murder, intrigue, assassination, and subterfuge.
He finds out that Themis Xenakis the Prime Minister of Greece has masterminded a plot, code-named Gladio, to release the shackles of austerity in Greece and to fill his own pockets with untold wealth. He has formed a fraudulent alliance with Germany and Russia with the sole intent of raping the Aegean Sea of its untold resources of oil and gas. The triumvirate has also devised a plan to crash the global financial markets and make themselves billions of dollars.
To help him, Xenakis has employed the services of Black Hawke a highly skilled black ops private army and arms dealer, led by American ex-Marine John Dexter. Murder, blackmail, and high treason become his stock in trade as Xenakis stops at nothing to get his way. He blackmails Alex, who is an old university colleague, into taking the position of Finance Minister in the Greek government to help him deliver his plan.
As Europe heads for economic darkness and the Turkish military gathers its forces in the eastern Aegean, Alex teams up with Gitta, his CIA handler, Chris Horsman, the CIA Station Chief in Athens, and Michelle Devereaux a Mossad agent, in a race to save the Aegean Sea and Europe from untold disaster.
If you love a fast-paced twisty action thriller in the mold of a Clancy or a Baldacci, then this book is for you.
