Charlie Pierce retired from a long career in public service. Public service that was not always so public. He is currently a fly fishing guide in New Mexico. He is a man's man in every sense of the word. But the brash, arrogant, cigar smoking, womanizing Charlie Pierce has a background and history that has always landed him in the middle of the action. I am speaking of the international headlines kind of action.
Charlie also happens to be a top former Special Ops Commander; with a no nonsense reputation as the best of the best. A real covert world bad ass that is privy to more than his share of Government secrets at the very top of Washington's elite. He is truly the one guy who knows where all the bodies are buried. He still does ocassional contract work for the Fed using his guide service as a cover.
Asked to take on a routine missing person's case at the request of her boyfriend; the case leads Charlie to Louisiana where he becomes involved in more than he bargained for including a run in with the local Sheriff and the British Secret Service, Mi-6. Charlie ends up at the door step of unspeakable murder, mystery, terrorism, and international intrigue.
