This is book number 1 in the The Reaper Series series.
An explosive, no-holds-barred thriller by New York Times bestselling author and star of Fox TV’s American Grit Nicholas Irving
Vick “The Reaper” Harwood is an esteemed sniper with a record kill count—33 kills in 90 days—when he is wounded at war. Now back in the U.S. with little memory of what happened, Harwood is eager to put the past behind him. He finds work training Special Forces snipers in Fort Bragg and enters a promising relationship with an Olympic medalist named Jackie. But his sixth sense tells him that something about his new life is not right.
“Will ensnare readers who follow Brad Taylor and Vince Flynn.”—Booklist
When a series of assassinations takes place in the area, Harwood has to wonder why the killings seem to be in line with his every move. Or why he feels like he’s being followed. Or how a sniper rifle matching the description of his own, which he lost, turns up out of nowhere. With his memory hazy and full of blackouts, Harwood is finally forced to ask himself: Is he being framed? Or is he the killer? Soon he’s on the run from the authorities. Jackie falls off the radar. And the assassinated men are outed as drug and sex traffickers. Nothing is adding up and time is running out for Harwood to unravel this mystery—or pay the price for crimes he may or may not have committed.
