Eye of VengeanceBook - 2006
The paths of an obsessive career journalist and an obsessive career sniper meet with explosive consequences in this fast-paced thriller. The sniper is the strongest member of a SWAT team, but with five kills in six years, his professional accuracy is misrepresented by the media who brand him trigger happy. But when he is called to Iraq as a National Guardsman, his expertise is newly appreciated. In the battle of Fallujah, he is ordered by his spotter to kill anything that crosses the street, regardless of threat. The sniper follows orders, but returns home a very different man as a result - one isolated, gripped by a cold, hard rage. When his old SWAT team refuse to have him back, he snaps. The sniper decides to go it alone. People begin to die.When a convicted child molester is gunned down shortly after his early release from prison, only one man connects his death to the recent deaths of other criminals. As a highly experienced journalist, he knows instantly that there is a story here, but what he doesn't initially realise is that the story is being shaped by his own hand. The sniper does not choose his own targets - he must have a spotter, a decision maker. It emerges that the sniper has been using the journalist's past and present stories as a way to search out a next target. The journalist finds himself pulled into a deadly dance with a trained killer - one that leads to a powerful denouement in which only one man gets to walk away.
