A dark tour de force of non-stop action and tension.
In Part One, The Hunted, Dan Willis, unemployed and desperate, is recruited by The Factory. Trained to hunt down and kill insurgents hell-bent on destroying the country, Willis methodically and efficiently performs his job. But there’s a dark secret behind The Factory, and when Willis discovers it no one is safe.
In Part Two, The Dame, Dan finds himself a fugitive and on the run. When a misfit group of criminals recruits him to steal The Dame—a priceless Dutch painting—it looks easy enough, at least until another dame gets into the picture. Then all hell breaks loose as double crosses pile up fast and furiously.
In the adrenaline-pumping, Part Three, The Interloper, Dan and a gang of thieves pull off a drug warehouse robbery until an interloper comes along, and then it becomes a race to see who can stay alive.
Ex-soldier and unemployed former liquor salesman Dan Willis, the hero of this action-packed, darkly witty thriller from Zeltserman (Husk), joins a newly created government department of Homeland Protection known as the Factory, which has “extraordinary powers to deal with the insidious and imminent threat to the country’s survival.” After three months of training, his superiors dispatch him to the Boston area to carry out his job as an assassin. After a score of hits, Willis begins to suspect that some of his targets aren’t terrorists, and when he investigates them more fully, he realizes he’s been duped and must stop the Factory’s mission. Willis slips into the underworld of crime to bring in money, using the subversive skills gleaned from his training and some of the Factory’s electronic tracking devices. Things seldom proceed as planned, and chaos erupts when an “interloper” gets one of Willis’s criminal colleagues in his sights. Zeltserman creates characters who, while at times amusing, still maintain their terrifying aura of unleashed fury. (BookLife)
