Paul Janson, a character first featured in Robert Ludlum's bestselling novel The Janson Directive, has a new goal: save the world, one operative, one mission, one redemption at a time.
Reformed from his days of covert-operations, Paul Janson has set a new mission for himself. Working in partnership with champion sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, he rehabilitates disenchanted agents and helps them create new lives outside of the violent intelligence sector. These former operatives then form a network of support for Janson when it comes to his other job--Janson also takes on independent assignments. For a fee, he'll use his skills to resolve international crises. But only those actions that he believes contribute to the greater good of all.
Whether he's rescuing an American doctor from Somalian pirates, attacking militant thugs intent on murdering a West African public servant agitating for human rights, or hunting the money-lenders who capitalize on barbaric civil war, Janson stays honest with three simple rules: 1) No torture. 2) No civilian casualties. 3) No killing anyone who doesn't try to kill them. Yet with his commitment to doing what is right--while facing canny intelligence operatives, ruthless warlords, deep sea marauders, or brutal dictators--Janson finds that his most difficult task is figuring out if he's fighting for the good side.

PAUL GARRISON was born in New York and currently lives in Connecticut. He has spent a lot of time on boats, and had published five thrillers, mostly sea-oriented: Fire And Ice; Red Sky At Morning; Buried At Sea; Sea Hunter; The Ripple Effect before writing the first of the new Janson novels. In addition, under the pseudonym Justin Scott, he is the co-author of Clive Cussler's bestseller Isaac Bell series.

Review:

"Robert Ludlum (1927-2001) would have been proud of Garrison's fine thriller that picks up where his The Janson Directive (2002) left off...That Janson is a complicated character makes him more interesting than most action heroes, while Kinkaid proves a capable sidekick. A number of swift, unexpected plot twists will leave Ludlum fans eager to see more in this franchise from Garrison (Fire and Ice)." (Publishers Weekly

)

"The Janson Command is a thrilling blockbuster in the great Ludlum tradition. International intrigue and smart suspense put Paul Garrison firmly in the company of the masters." (Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author of Silent Mercy
)

"Paul Garrison makes Robert Ludlum's world explode with vivid characters and authentic action scenes that keep me wanting to know what happens next." (David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Murder as a Fine Art )

"Fast-paced, and enormously entertaining, Garrison provides the reader with a roller coaster of a story. The Janson Command draws you deep into a world of double-crosses and triple-threats that span the globe. With an operative team like Janson and Kincaid, saving the world was never so exciting." (Eric Van Lustbader, New York Times bestselling author of Blood Trust )

"Garrison has a gift for bringing military operations alive and keeps the tension ratcheted to the last page. Ludlum fans will love this one." (Kyle Mills, New York Times bestselling author of The Ares Decision )

"Writer Paul Garrison, who has five excellent nautical thrillers under his name, has seamlessly taken over the Janson franchise, delivering as exciting and as explosive a tale as anything the master ever produced." (The Independent (UK) )

"For Ludlum fans reading THE JANSON COMMAND is like find a long-lost novel written by the master himself. It's good reading." (The Free-Lance Star )

"THE JANSON COMMAND has the traditional Robert Ludlum twists and turns, crosses and double-crosses that will appeal to long-time fans." (Bookreporter.com )
