The dark world he’s been fighting against has caught up with him. Will his daughter pay the price?
Former Army Ranger Pierce Hunt is no stranger to violence. Fresh off a six-month suspension, he’s itching to hit a notorious Mexican drug cartel where it hurts, even if that means protecting crime boss Vicente Garcia, a witness in the case against sadistic cartel leader Valentina Mieles. But things spiral out of control when the cartel murders Garcia and kidnaps his granddaughter and an innocent bystander, Hunt’s own teenage daughter.
Mieles wants the new head of the Garcia family on a plate—literally. Hunt has seventy-two hours to deliver, or Mieles will execute the girls live on social media. With the clock ticking, Hunt goes off the grid and teams up with Garcia’s daughter, a former lover and current enemy. To save the girls, Hunt will have to become a man he swore he’d never be again: an avenging killer without limits or mercy.
A former federal agent specialized in protective operations and counterterrorism, Simon Gervais spent nearly twenty years in the military and in law enforcement. His assignments took him all over Europe and the Middle East.
HUNT THEM DOWN, the first book in a new series featuring Pierce Hunt, a disavowed DEA special agent, comes out on January 1st, 2019, by Amazon Publishing imprint Thomas & Mercer.
