Ghost detainees.
And a massive cover-up that continues even today.
This is the propulsive thriller that only former CIA operative turned bestselling novelist Barry Eisler could write.
Marooned in a Manila jail after a bar fight fatality, black ops soldier Ben Treven gets a visit from his former commander, Colonel Scott Horton, who explains the price of Ben's release: Find and eliminate Daniel Larison, a rogue operator from Ben's unit who has stolen ninety-two torture tapes from the CIA and is using them to blackmail the U.S. government.

But other players are after the tapes, too, and to find Larison, Ben will have to survive CIA hit teams, Blackwater mercenaries, and the long reach of the White House. He'll also have to find a way to handle Paula Lanier, a smart, sexy FBI agent who has her own reasons for wanting the tapes and is determined to get them before Ben does. With the stakes this high, everyone has an angle--everyone but Ben, who will have to find the right alliance if he wants to stay alive.

Did anyone else have a problem connecting with Ben after he murders a random guy just because he's in a bad mood? Does anyone else object to being held in contempt by men who are doing unspeakable things to protect us that we wouldn't necessarily allow them to do if we could stop them? Do other people think that the oligarchy has already won? It seems only too plausible, sadly.

Great read like every one of Barry Eisler's other books I've read. Highly recommend this author 2 anyone unfamiliar with his work!

In a Manila jail, Ben Treven gets a visit from his former commander who has a get-out-of jail card for him. Good action and suspense.

Always a sure bet if you like complex plots, shifty characters with hidden agendas & lots of action. Still waiting for another John Rain book but until then, his last two will do nicely.
