Example text

He had a drink filled with ice and Maker舗s Mark pressed against a fat lip and a bag of ice held against his swollen right eye. Leaning against the counter directly across from him was Troy Tschida, a thirty-two-year-old former Green Beret and Hurley舗s right-hand man. Tschida tried but failed to suppress his amusement over his boss舗s battered physical appearance. 舡 Hurley snarled. 舠Absolutely not,舡 Tschida said with dramatic, false sincerity. 舠You prick. Wait till I stick your ass in the ring with him.

He could walk among the enemy without attracting so much as a suspicious glance, but that would all change if he didn舗t do something. He thought of his training and everything he舗d sacrificed. The entire operation would be exposed, and that meant his career in the field would be over. He舗d be stuffed behind some desk back in Washington where he舗d rot for the next twenty-five years. He舗d wake up each morning and go to bed each night with the nagging thought that he should have done something舒anything.

The guy舗s neck was as thick as the average man舗s thigh. The second was that he didn舗t fit in. At least as far as Rapp understood the intent of what they were up to. The man舗s features were so distinctive as to make him almost impossible to forget. He looked more like an enforcer than a stealth operative. 舠Do 舗em right this time, shithead,舡 the big man said testily. Rapp was sweaty, dirty, hot as hell, and not used to taking crap from anyone. He had done his pullups correctly. If anyone could be accused of not doing them all the way it would be the very man who was in his face.
