Landslide: Adam Sikes

Landslide

A prologue so devastating, a man who was blindsided and the result will take him somewhere he might never return. His last name is Delgado but it’s not and the one man who is supposed to protect and help him is really the enemy. Why was he captured and what will his fate be as we learn more when we meet Mason Hackett a senior partner as Ruttfield and Leason a London investment firm. His job to his jet set about Europe and befriend and interact with mega bucks  transaction. When a journalist named Henry Delgado is kidnapped in Ukraine, he sees the man’s face and needs to take  huge breath. He knows him as Kevin Gomez his best friend the as killed in combat in Iraq 15 years ago. Gomez communicated to Hackett the word Landslide the tag for help. Then the bodies fell, the RPG/s turned them into blood and with he images in his mind he cannot focus on an investment presentation, and he hears an email ping with the subject line saying Past Debts.

Mason must face off with sone difficult situations and hopefully can bribe the right officials but first dealing with the email and the message: start with Doug: KG. Doug as he knew or knows him is an observer, Commanding officer at Camp Ramadi in Iraq and now a CIA operative who warns in a threatening way that Mason should forget Gomez and not dare go after him and enter The Ukraine.

Every step of the way he’s taken in by someone claiming to want to help him but not really. Zach, Rick and Zach claimed to want to help him after he finds himself in Czech Republic and then arrested. Zach lies about who sent him and Rick follows suit until the ride out of jail and events turn ugly , Rick kills Zach and a deadly accident Rick and Mason relies on Ike and what happens next? He has to find a way to get into the Ukraine and then find Delgado but before he surprises an old contact, and the event turns vicious and he’s forced to leave so who sent Alex and can he trust her?

Money talks to a point but why is she helping him and if he finds Delgado how will he get him away from his captors and who behind the scenes is betraying him? How are the bad guys always five steps ahead of him and how is he being tracked? Alex and Mason find themselves on a terrible collision course and the result more bodies fall, she and her contact plus Mason are attacked and now what will he do? Captured because of the attack and forced to try and deal with his captures they claim and state why they think he was there, why did he come after Delgado and as we learn more about his reasons and the guilt he feels for the men in his charge that dies, Mason seems to be on  a one-way road to death. Lives are at stake, but will he win this war within himself.

The author takes us down many dangerous paths but where will it al end and when? The events take many drastic turns and his path leads him to a man who questions his reasons for going after Delgado and introduces Mason to some that might help. Bodies fall, Alex is killed, cousins of the people that are helping him fall and now it is personal on all sides but what will happen when he meets up with Delgado who the captors are using other methods to get the information they think he has. The man in charge instructs others to take more action and the list of who he wants eliminated grows as the suspense is high, the manipulations even more and the deceptions are growing but what and why does Doug contact Mason and why does he feel he should keep on and will they be there to rescue him in the end? Is this just another ploy?
A faked death, a covert CIA program dating back to the Cold War, the Russians, Ukrainian separatists, crooked industries, mercs and arms dealers and more. What was the result and when would this end?

With the help of Borysko and his team you won’t believe what they along with Mason were able to do and in the end you won’t believe who was behind it all. Lives were at stake, working for his company Mason did not know how involved Alistair his boss was and the connection between him and Doug. When they finally get to Delgado you won’t believe the astounding and outrageous methods to keep him alive, get Mason to safety the harsh reality behind what they were not telling him until they do? The final chapter and last ten pages will reveal exactly what the Program involved, the truth behind what Doug and Alistair learned and were doing and the fact that this is far from over. Will Mason join the team? What is next find out when author Adam Sikes pens the next Mason Hackett novel.

This is one ending you won’t believe, and you the reader will decide truths, lies, betrayals and can Mason now trust those that betrayed him before?
