Overview
Mike Shocklee is a mid-level operations officer in the Central Intelligence Agency. In March 1993, he is deployed to Somalia as part of a CIA element to provide intelligence support for the U.S.-led United Nations humanitarian relief effort. His assignment: to locate and reactivate former CIA human intelligence (HUMINT) assets who can provide intelligence on rival, warring clans. This assignment is simple. It is specific. And it goes horribly wrong. He locates and reactivates the intelligence cell, but when Hell breaks loose, Shocklee takes matters into his own hands. Initiating a risky gambit unsanctioned by anyone in the CIA, he moves his assets out of safety and out of hiding into the dangerous environs of central Mogadishu. In the intense fighting that ensues, disaster strikes. Shocklee not only loses his assets, but is seriously wounded. Back in the States and reassigned to headquarters at Langley, Shocklee is back at work. But all too soon, he feels the oppression of the bureaucracy wearing him thin. As he starts to take matters into his own hands...to wage his own war against the terrorists, gangs and thugs...the body-count around Shocklee, himself, begins to rise. It will be up to senior CIA agent Jack Casey to discover what's happening and why-and decide if he can, or should, stop it. Author Jack Kassinger was born in Henderson, Kentucky, but spent his formative years in the small rural town of Livermore. After college, he joined the Marine Corps and served in Viet Nam where he was wounded in action. He joined the Central Intelligence Agency following his tour with the Marines and retired from that organization as a Senior Intelligence Officer. While with the CIA he attended the Federal Executive Institute in Charlottesville, Virginia. After retiring, Jack was employed with a privately held company to manage security operations for the construction of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, Russia and the new U.S. Embassy in Beijing, China. He currently resides in Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas with his wife Cherie.
