Book ZERO: RogueOps Sniper Assassin Novel



The RogueOps Saga Begins

The Secretary of Defense, Director of National Intelligence, and Director of the FBI received Intel that they and President Alistair Scott were on an assassination hit list. The order originated from the Marxist Communist League, heads of the Davos World Forum.

The Intelligence members discussed their options to deal with the threat in a secret meeting. At the end of the meeting they decide to utilize clandestine RogueOps teams to carry out their plans. RogueOps must track down, intercept the bad guys and deal out swift and deadly justice in the manner of the Old West.

RogueOps is a band of American Vigilantes.


Equatorial South Atlantic

Lachlan Hawke, ex-military Navy Commander of RogueOps private military sniper assassins group, sailed leisurely toward a south Atlantic rendezvous with his brother Gary and Gary's family.


A shattering message came over Hawke's radio.

"Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!
"Hawke, this is Gary! Hostiles fired on us!"
"They are about to overtake us!"

“Gary! This is Hawke! You have weapons!"
"Open fire! I’m on my way! I’m on my way!”


The Mayday calls kept coming.

“Gary, do you copy?
"Copy back! Copy back!"

Hawke slammed the throttles to red line. He arrived at his brother's boat two and a half hours later. Gary's boat sat listless in the hot afternoon sun.

The pirates were gone.

Hawke looked in horror at the bloody, mangled bodies of his brother and his family hanging from the lower mast spreader of their boat.


One Year Later

McChafin, director of computer operations, looked at Hawke.

"We located Magus Sammada."
Hawke squinted. "Who the hell is he?"
"Magus Sammada murdered your brother and his family."
