Covert or “Black” operatives are a select few whose missions are secret, and whose activities are not made public. They are almost always run by a special sector of a country’s armed forces, with two primary purposes. Their overall objective is the saving of lives.
One purpose is hostage rescue. This form of operation has a two-fold concern… the lives of the operatives and the lives and safety of the hostages. The other of their two primary purposes is the elimination of a party or parties that represent a proven danger to humanity and/or a government.
Either situation requires very specific data and intelligence, as well as intense split-second timing. The operatives are well aware that every time they are deployed they’re putting their lives on the line for the benefit of others.
Joe's first book, The Lethal Fisherman is book #1 of a suspense/thriller trilogy.
