Ben Treven Book 2eBook - 2014
"Torture. Ghost Detainees. And a massive cover-up that continues even today. Marooned in a Manila jail after a bar fight fatality, black ops soldier Ben Treven gets a visit from his former commander, Colonel Scott Horton, who explains the price of Ben's release: find and eliminate Daniel Larison, a rogue operator from Ben's unit who has stolen ninety-two torture tapes from the CIA and is using them to blackmail the U.S. government. But other players are after the tapes, too, and to find Larison, Ben will have to survive CIA hit teams, Blackwater mercenaries, and the long reach of the White House. He'll also have to find a way to handle Paula Lanier, a smart, sexy FBI agent who has her own reasons for wanting the tapes and is determined to get them before Ben does. With the stakes this high, everyone has an angle-everyone but Ben, who will have to find the right alliance if he wants to stay alive. "A thrill-seeker's book... Perhaps most interesting of all, the story is based on true events: 92 missing CIA interrogation tapes that allegedly included recordings of prisoners being tortured. Eisler's latest offering doesn't reinvent the genre, but it certainly pumps it full of adrenaline." -The Daily Beast "Page-turningly addictive, and a plot that owes much to the realities of modern-day America." -Andy Worthington, author of THE GUANTANAMO FILES "Addictive... a microscope turned on the official policies of torture, extraordinary rendition, and the systematic ghosting of detainees." -Matthew Alexander, author of HOW TO BREAK A TERRORIST "A white knuckle roller-coaster ride through the dark side..." -Robert Baer, author of SEE NO EVIL."-- Provided by publisher.
