Book 2: The Island
After 15 years cut off from the world in a secret military prison, Sam Castillo returns as enigmatic billionaire Victor Sirin, determined to take revenge against the three powerful men who destroyed his life. Manipulating people like chess pieces to punish the guilty and reward the virtuous, Victor awakens the suspicions of millennial FBI agent Danica Jorjevic. He deftly evades her inquiries, even as her underdog determination earns his respect. Both are driven by a desire for justice. If Victor's vengeance will cause collateral damage to the innocent, what makes him different from the men he hates?
Book 1: The Prisoner
Sam Castillo embodies the blue-collar American dream — promoted to contractor, engaged to his sweetheart Abby at age 24 — until three enemies conspire to frame him as a terrorist. Rendered to a black-site prison an ocean away, Sam befriends a brilliant, multi-lingual fellow detainee who educates him in the ways of the world... and bestows on him the key to a secret fortune. After 15 years of imprisonment, Sam's daring escape puts him in the position to, at last, take a terrible revenge.
