Paladine by Kenneth Eade

Meet terrorism's worst enemy


From the best-selling and award winning author critics hail as "one of the strongest thriller writers on our scene." Robert Garcia was an unremarkable man, tapped out of a promising military career to become a death squad assassin for the CIA. Retirement was not in the cards for Robert, so he disappeared instead. After he comes out of the cold to answer the call to aid of a fellow soldier facing a bum rap, Robert is thrust back into the spotlight when he is in the wrong place at the wrong time and kills a terrorist, thereby saving dozens of lives. He finds gainful employment in the slaughter of jihadists, which sparks an urban legend that Robert, a dangerous and unfeeling assassin, is a living paladin, whose mission is to rid the earth of evil for the betterment of mankind. He is given the name: "Paladine" and God help whoever gets between him and his next target.

Sample text:


Robert Garcia was an unremarkable man.  Other men, the exceptional types, could never be forgotten.  Men of striking, imposing persuasion, or those with a certain superior intellect or cleverness.  Robert held none of those attributes but, if you had the misfortune to have him touch your life in any way, and were fortuitous enough to live after the experience, he would be indelibly etched in your memory.

    Robert’s characteristics were fine-drawn, precise.  He could drift in on the night air with only a whisper of the wind, and then disappear into the shadows, the only place where he ever felt secure and content.    At five-foot-eleven, dark-haired with a touch of grey around the edges, he was a chameleon that blended in with most crowds. But under the ordinary clothing he wore he had the body of a herculean powerhouse, chiseled and ripped.  Née John Richards, Jr. to an American military career man who had taken a Lebanese  wife, since Robert had been old enough to walk, he had marched in the footsteps of his father.  When his country came calling, John Richards, Jr. proudly answered that call and served with pride as his father’s son, the nephew of his Great Uncle Sam.  There was never any question of it.  Working up the ranks the hard way, he made Captain, and it wasn’t long before his special traits and abilities landed him his first secret assignment, along with his first alias – Malik Abdul.
