About the book
The Reckoning Squad was the new name being whispered in the darkened corridors of the powerful in Washington. The name was whispered with awe, and the whispers grew louder.
Twenty people had been carefully vetted and recruited to undergo specialized training. Training engineered to break them utterly, intended to shatter everything they once believed themselves capable of surviving. Only the best of them made it through the twelve weeks of hell. They now formed a cohesive black-ops unit, known as The Reckoning Squad.
Their facility is breached, and the team’s numbers are decimated. The survivors know that they’re in a fight for their lives. They have been betrayed from within. Trust has now become a rare commodity. They want answers.
The betrayers don’t understand just what they’ve unleashed.
But they are about to find out.
The Reckoning Squad are coming, and they have just rewritten the rules.
One of the recent reviews for the book
This story gripped me and drew me in from the first sentence on the first page. Unimaginable tragedy struck a young girl, Chastity, crippling her mentally for a long time. When she had to shoot and kill another classmate to save lives, she struggled to recover. Her desire to see justice served to those who earned it sent her on a path of becoming an FBI Agent once she graduated college. But, the unexpected offer to join an elite team appealed to her even more.
As the story unfolds, we see her bond strongly with her teammates as they face arduous training. But the bond cements itself as they begin to work cases and bring about justice in whatever way it took.
When they’re assigned to an extremely high profile case and there is a breach, causing great loss of lives, things move into overdrive for Chaz (the name she shortened Chastity to after the school shooting) and other team members. The intricate web of deceit, murder, and high finance proves to be a challenge beyond anything they’d imagined. These characters come to life at the hand of this talented author. I particularly loved the characters, Chaz and Zach, and the romantic tension between them. This story has everything any reader could want. It is a definite page-turner. I couldn’t wait to see the outcome. If you are a fan of fast-paced, deep stories, you’ll love this one!
