In March of 2002, while the eyes of the world focused on Afghanistan, Jack Noble finds himself on the outskirts of Baghdad, Iraq. A Marine in name only, Jack is on-loan to the CIA. Normally an integral part of the team, he finds that he is nothing more than a security detail in Iraq.
Jack and his partner Bear have a run-in with four CIA special agents over the treatment of an Iraqi family. Within hours Jack and Bear are detained.
All Jack wanted was to finish his enlistment and move on with his life. All he did was intervene and save a family from unwarranted violence at the hands of four CIA agents. But he soon discovers that he did far more than intervene. He has placed himself dead square in the middle of a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of the U.S. government.
Noble Beginnings by L.T. Ryan (Jack Noble, #1)
Everyone loves “that” hero willing to go above and beyond, knowing they are so deep into black ops that every mission could be their last. They go the extra mile for training, specializing and require the intensity of a brain surgeon in order to survive.
Jack Noble is one of those soldiers, doing what few can do. Betrayal by his own government, as well as the soldiers he was on a mission with make Jack and one member of his team targets, pawns, and the fall guys for a mission horribly and inhumanely gone wrong.
NOBLE BEGINNINGS by L.T. Ryan is a gritty tale of a man in search of justice, truth and the answers he may never get. Why was Jack set up to be a traitor? Who is pulling the strings? Just as he gets closer to the answers he seeks, government officials with the answers start dying and Jack will find he has no one he can trust, unless he makes a deal.
Riveting, intense and for those of us who believe that we do not know what goes on behind the governmental veils of secrecy will find a hero in Jack. From start to finish, this is non-stop, chaotic reading that is not only well-written, but gives just enough information not to sound like some hidden government document!
Are you holding out for a hero who stands against the odds? Meet Jack Noble!
