Greenwich, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/10/2013 -- At least once in your life, haven’t you desperately wanted to throw out all the rules, charge full steam ahead, and just get something done? Decisive action is a prominent characteristic of Jordan Sandor in Targets of Revenge (Gallery Books; February 19, 2013; $26.00). A gripping follow-up to Jeffrey S. Stephens’ Targets of Opportunity, it chronicles a vengeful Jordan Sandor dangerously close to the edge as he tracks a cold-blooded homicidal mastermind.
Adina, a sociopath, has cut a bloody swath through the pages of these novels, indiscriminately slaughtering innocents, including Sandor’s close friend. Determined to catch him, Sandor turns a deaf ear to bureaucratic nit-picking; this is no time to play nice.
Journeying into the heart of the Venezuelan jungle, armed with little more than a combat knife and an automatic weapon, Sandor infiltrates Adina’s camp, where he discovers the latest murderous plan being hatched by the ruthless terrorist.
Sandor fights to prevent this disaster, chasing clues to far-flung countries, but his unorthodox methods land him on Interpol’s list of international fugitives. Meanwhile, someone Sandor trusts could very well be feeding the agent dangerous lies as he struggles to stay on Adina’s trail. Even after being taken captive, Sandor refuses to surrender. Learning of a catastrophic assault planned for New York City, he has no choice but to risk his life to protect his country’s safety and freedom.
From beginning to end, Targets of Revenge races from one heart-stopping moment to the next, in the style of New York Times bestselling authors Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum. Adrenaline-pumping action can become addictive, and Targets of Revenge makes it so. Please watch the exciting trailer at: http://youtu.be/w6N7qwTJ_xE
