Soldier of Misfortune : A Gage Hartline Thriller
Gage Hartline is in no condition to accept a dangerous mission inside the Peruvian drug trade. He's at a personal low point - and he needs something to make him forget. But he's never accepted a job like this before. For the first time ever, Gage signs a contract to kill someone in cold blood. Gage's target is Sonny Calabrese, a ruthless American living in Lima, Peru. Sonny employs teams of elite soldiers - like Gage - to steal cocaine from the cartels and sell it at an extreme profit. When Sonny grows tired of his own people, he murders them. Creatively. Bizarrely. And now he must pay. Against the advice of his mentor, Gage accepts the contract, believing it's a skewed mission of mercy. He's working for the families of the dead. But not everything is as it seems. There's a deadly undercurrent of greed surrounding Sonny Calabrese's organization, and Gage finds himself sucked into the vortex. SOLDIER OF MISFORTUNE is the third entry in the Gage Hartline series and combines espionage and suspense with plenty of action. Typical of a Driskell thriller, the story blends memorable characters with a lush, international backdrop. The Gage Hartline series is under contract with Solipsist Films and TO THE LIONS, second in the series, is currently in development as a movie.
