Oddball is back. He is reliable, trustworthy, intelligent, and doesn’t even have a passing acquaintance with fear. He’s a nice guy – unless you upset him. And right now, Oddball is seriously upset.
Someone is murdering Oddball’s former regimental buddies and it seems like the whole platoon has been targeted. Oddball teams up again with what remains of the platoon. They need to find the culprits and have a quiet word in their ears. They also need to find out who’s bankrolling the killers. However, one of the thugs makes himself known when he targets the wife of one of the old team. But he underestimated her reaction.
Oddball enlists master hacker Harry Lewis – real name Harriet – who has the social skills of an angry porcupine but is as sharp as a winter’s morning when it comes to breaking through firewalls and uncovering secrets. Harry’s personal space is normally defended with alarms, barbed wire and motion sensors. But she drops her guard when she meets Danny Nightly, a Special Forces veteran who was sacrificed as a political pawn.
Meanwhile, twelve-year-old Mara Starling is not about to accept that she’s been kidnapped. You don’t kidnap Mara and get away with it. But she doesn’t realise that when she escapes, the danger is only going to get worse.
Imagine a masterful combination of John le Carré and Lee Child in one intense story. That’s how Oddball and his fellow team members are going to grip you.
