About the Book
This is the first in a series of books about William O’Brien
(Bill). Bill is biologically enhanced, rich, single, and handsome;
loves children, would never hurt a woman, loves his country and is
also a professional assassin and reluctant agent of the US
government. Bill doesn’t believe in any rules but his own and in

Bill’s comfortable world turns upside down when he discovers on
a trip to Australia that he has a brother and that his affairs are
not as secret as he had thought. Whereas he has always known that he

involved by the US government in a long running battle between it
and Doctor Bachmann and his evil daughter. Dr. Bachmann has produced
a professional killer called the ‘Foe’ who he is using to
