The second installment in the San Angeles trilogy, a thrilling near-future cyberpunk sci-fi series Kris Merrill was a survivor. She’d lost her parents as a young girl, and she’d been forced to flee the dubious shelter of her aunt’s home at thirteen to escape the unwanted attentions of her uncle. She’d lived on the streets of San Angeles, finding refuge in the lowest level of the city. When she got the chance, Kris found a room to rent on Level 2, earning a precarious living as a motorcycle messenger, a courier delivering sensitive materials the megacorporations would not trust to any method that could be hacked. A year ago, Kris’s life changed irrevocably when a delivery went terribly wrong, and she was targeted for termination by the Meridian corporation, one of the most powerful of the megaconglomerates that controlled the government. Salvation came in the form of Ian Miller, who rescued Kris from certain death, recruiting her for the underground resistance group of which he was a part. Since then, Kris has been hidden with the resistance, training to become an operative. Just as her training with the anti-corporate movement is nearing its end, their compound is destroyed by surprise attack. Ready or not, Kris and the other trainees are recalled to the dangerous metropolis of San Angeles. But their transport is shot down and Ian Miller, the man she loves, is captured. Someone, it seems, is using him to get to Kris. With the help of a retired operative with PTSD, and the mysterious man who fled the scene when Kris’s parents were killed, Kris searches for any sign of Ian. As the corporations battle civil unrest—and each other—the city slowly shuts down. Kris and San Angeles are running out of time....

After more than a decade on the deadly front lines of the war on terror, Ryan Kealey believes he's finally put danger behind him--and some of his demons to rest. But his calm is shattered when he's swept into a merciless terror attack during a charity gala in downtown Baltimore. Among the dozens of casualties is the wife of CIA Deputy Director John Harper. With normal channels of investigation obstructed, Harper turns to Kealey, the one man with the resources, expertise--and freedom from government interference--to pursue the awful truth. Following a string of secrets and violence, Kealey blazes a trail from the confines of the innermost chambers of government and big business to the dimmest reaches of the human psyche, forced to match wits with a new nemesis aided by new allies, each with a unique agenda. Slowly, Kealey unspools an unimaginable conspiracy that suggests America may in fact be its own worst enemy.

This gripping novel is set before the 9/11 tragedy. The novel is set in Afghanistan, where U.S., Saudi Arabia, and allied anti-Soviet forces not only brought the communists state to its knees, but also financed the rise of the Afghan Mujaheddin and Al-Qaeda. During this historic transition, a youthful Soviet recruit, Ivan Petrova, rises from Spetsnaz commando training to become a wealthy entrepreneur. Petrova keeps his sanity throughout tragic events by turning both the metal detritus of the ?killing fields? into welded sculptures and his love of medicine into a life of healing. Ultimately, it is his strong family ties that help him survive the dehumanizing experience of the Afghan invasion and the fall of his country in this action-packed tale of courage, loyalty, and brutality of a ?win-less war.' Forsythe's skill as a boots-on-the-ground raconteur is a compelling and intense story about war, love, and family.
