When orders came through for David Lockhart to gather his team together for another top-secret mission, he thought nothing of it. It came from the proper source, within proper channels, encoded with the latest series of ciphers. Everything seemed in order. It was not.The mission was a one-way ticket to oblivion and the ambush MESA walked into took every life of the team. All except one. Yup, you guessed it. David Lockhart managed to shoot his way out, a combination of skills, training, and a beautiful woman.For the perpetrators of this betrayal of one of the most successful covert teams in American history, David Lockhart's survival was not a good thing. No, it was not a good thing. For now Lockhart was mad. Not the raging, red-faced, out-of-control, irrational type of mad. You see, David Lockhart wasn't like that. His anger was far more dangerous, for his outlet was directed at planning, cold and calculating analysis of what went wrong. Just be certain that revenge would be his.

In the shadows of the intelligence world, illegal operations and political terrorism happen with startling frequency. Yet the best agents are the ones you will never hear about. The rules of this cloak and dagger game are fuzzy, but the players are as diverse as the missions they're assigned to. For the most part, operatives are extremely loyal and willing to lay their lives on the line for their belief, country, or cause. Agencies around the world recruit and train men and women who are intelligent, resourceful, and dedicated.
Yet within even the most secretive organizations, there is yet another level hidden deep within budgets and operations and departments. This often-denied element is commonly referred to as "Black Ops," because of the black pen used to cross out budget expenditures allocated for such illegal covert operations. Throughout modern history many incredible military breakthroughs were initially buried within black operations, such as stealth technology and the super-quiet Seawolf submarine.
However, this is the more personal story of the "grunts" of the covert world - the assassins. This breed of expert killer is at the heart of any illegal mission around the world, where a sniper may deal death with a bullet, or a bomb might explode in the victim's car. No matter what method is used to deliver the message, the end result is supposed to be final.
Their motives were as simple as they were complicated. Yet when the target was "locked-on" in the cross-hairs of a rifle sight, the impact was always monumental. Here then is the story of one such member of the killer elite.
