The discovery of actual ISIS and related terrorist cells, training facilities throughout the United States of America inspired Kenneth Eade to write more than just another assassination thriller. He uses the legendary Paladine deity from the Dragonlance fantasy series as name bearer for his latest work of fiction. Meet Robert Garcia, a man with many names. His aliases and above the law status as a self-employed assassin, are the perfect cover to pop up and eliminate Islamic terrorists prior to their planned attacks. A dangerous mission that only disturbs the ISIS leadership, but also awakens the FBI and CIA.
The agencies are initially unable to trace this underground hero, but despite the high-tech, smart weaponry, and measures taken for coverage, also Garcia is a fallible human. Will he survive his masterpiece mission, or die on the spot? Will the cops bring him to justice, or let him continue doing what they’re unable to complete? Paladine was a great read, up-to-date, and entertaining.
