From Rambo-creator David Morrell, the father of the modern action
novel, comes a gripping global thriller that explores the meaning of
friendship and the naked edge between love and hate.
He calls himself Cavanaugh. No first name, and even “Cavanaugh” isn’t
his actual last name. He’s a protector. If you refer to him as a
bodyguard, which he regards as a synonym for a thug, you won’t like his
reaction. His hatred of bullies compelled him to enlist in Special
Forces, where he was accepted into Delta Force. Now as a civilian, he
runs Global Protective Services, the world’s best security company. His
goal? To defend the helpless, to keep predators from their prey.
Once Cavanaugh had a boyhood best friend. They played in the woods near
their homes, pretending to be soldiers surviving behind enemy lines.
Grownup, they belonged to Delta Force and later worked as protectors for
the world’s best security company.
Now their lives have taken drastically different paths, pitting them
against each other, forcing them to play their boyhood game again, this
time to learn who dies.
The survival of a great city hangs in the balance as two
friends-turned-enemies hunt each other and discover that there’s a line
between predators and prey, a line that’s called The Naked Edge.
