Clever foster kid,
small-time con artist & hacker,
ideal CIA recruit!
The early-training scheme that landed a Black teen from Atlanta in a small Ukrainian town trying to stop a ruthless arms dealer didn’t go well.
So here he is at a new school with a new identity and new friends…but not the only one who isn’t operating under their true name or allegiance!
How do you know who to trust?
My book talk: Now undercover at a prestigious Colorado boarding school, Jake is haunted by his first failure as a CIA operative when a candid photo of the 16 year old African American goes viral and the bad guys arrive, more than ready to kill!
Former foster kid Jake has a new identity as Pete for his senior year at Carlisle (double-crossed Ukrainian arms dealers are more than mean), keeping tabs on the kids of diplomats, high-ranking military, and super-scientists – plus his housemate Bunk who lived underground with his dad till last year.
No coincidence that armed hostiles invade Carlisle the morning after that photo hits social media or that the Ukranian hacker has attacked super-secret projects near Denver or that Jake is the only one who can save his classmates and national security!
Someone inside the school let the hostiles in – why?
Mysterious packages arrived recently – for which international student?
The bad guys say that “Prettyboy must die” but Jake is determined to keep everyone at Carlisle alive!
