"A LABYRINTH OF HIGHLY CHARGED ACTION" -Tome Tender "MULTIFACETED CHARACTERS AND A PLOT THAT NEVER STOPS" -ForeWord Reviews
Sometimes evil is not born of madness, but madness of evil.
Follow CIA agent Sara Houston and Catholic priest Francisco Lopez as they pursue the killers of his brother. What they will find will uncover the darkest secrets of Washington.
But their hunt is not alone. As they uncover a conspiracy deep in the intelligence community, they discover that someone else is pursuing the same subjects: a killer bent on a revenge so terrible, it is only matched by the crimes committed against him.
In the end, no one escapes unscathed, no beliefs will go unchallenged, and no wrong will escape the terrible, final, and extraordinary retribution.

"Just when you think you have the recipe down for international thrillers, an author upends it and creates multifaceted characters and a plot that never stops. The author has packed everything into Extraordinary Retribution. There’s intrigue, murder, ethics, religion, romance, an international setting, and characters you really come to know and care about.” https://www.forewordreviews.com/reviews/extraordinary-retribution/

"We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office." -Aesop, slave, author of fables
“Is the beauty of the Whole really enhanced by our agony? And is the Whole really beautiful? And what is beauty? Throughout all his existence man has been striving to hear the music of the spheres, and has seemed to himself once and again to catch some phrase of it, or even a hint of the whole form of it. Yet he can never be sure that he has truly heard it, nor even that there is any such perfect music at all to be heard. Inevitably so, for if it exists, it is not for him in his littleness. But one thing is certain. Man himself, at the very least, is music, a brave theme that makes music also of its vast accompaniment, its matrix of storms and stars. Man himself in his degree is eternally a beauty in the eternal form of things. It is very good to have been man. And so we may go forward together with laughter in our hearts, and peace, thankful for the past, and for our own courage. For we shall make after all a fair conclusion to this brief music that is man.” ―Olaf Stapledon, Last and First Men, 1930
