A Thriller and First Novel by this Author
A scientist, mad at the government for questioning his genetic modification (GMO) research methods, blows up his lab and disappears. Protagonist, Joe Garner, angry at the government, resigns his position with National Security to join a private security service, and becomes the lead agent to save the world cattle industry. His investigation leads him back to the location where, as a marine, he was severely injured, and he comes face to face with the jihadist leader of the attacking force which killed everyone except he and a Kyrgyzstan officer.
Throughout this case, Joe Garner has to deal with government bureaucracy, religious fanatics, as well as an egotistical owner of a major beef producing company.
