Termination Orders

Once a trained killer for the CIA, Dan Morgan has built a new life for himself. But when he receives a desperate plea from his former Black Ops partner--reportedly killed in a foreign battle zone--he flies to help. It should be a routine mission, extracting a human asset from the region. But it's not routine; it's an ambush. Now Morgan is running for his life, holding crucial evidence. With his contacts dead and family in danger, Morgan must take on a full-scale conspiracy in the highest echelons of a vast global network that plays by its own rules--when it suits them.

For Dan Morgan, it's about to come to an end in Washington, D.C., on a national stage, in the crosshairs of a killer. . .

In October 2019, I discovered the books of author LEO J. MALONEY. His first book featuring superspy Dan Morgan is TERMINATION ORDERS. His series is now at nine books and counting. The author himself is a thirty-year veteran of private contractor black operations so he knows his subject quite well.

Dan Morgan, A.K.A Cobra, has retired from the National Clandestine Service, part of the C.I.A. He lives with his wife and sixteen-year-old daughter in Massachusetts where he runs a “classic car” business. Into this idyllic life comes a man from his past life as an agent. This man tells Dan that his former partner and friend of many years, Peter Conley (A.K.A. Cougar), has been killed in Afghanistan. Before he died, Cougar had sent the Agency a coded message that only Dan can decode. Dan tells his wife and daughter that he has to go to Washington, D.C. to decode the message but he will be home in a couple of days at the most. Bad decision on Dan’s part.

He is drawn back into black ops because of the message he decodes. He goes to Afghanistan to see what happened to Cougar and his recruit who had gathered damning information about a military contractor, one or more spies within the ranks of the C.I.A. and corrupt government officials. When Dan returns to the United States, an individual who turns Dan’s life upside down pays him an astonishing visit. There are car chases, assassination attempts, kidnappings and more adventures.

If you are a fan of spy stories and action adventures, this book is for you. If I could give it more than five stars, I would.
