The government abandoned him.
Now they're asking for his help.
But they're not going to like his answer.
A secret department of Homeland Security is recruiting agents to work undercover in the Middle East, and the director wants his second-in-command, Matt Egan, to bring aboard an old friend, Salam Al Fayed-better known as Fade.
He seems perfect for the job: A New Yorker and ex-Navy Seal, he is the son of immigrants and he speaks perfect Arabic. Trouble is, he's "retired;" he got shot in the back in the line of duty, and the U.S. government refused to pay for the risky surgery that could have helped him.
Now Fade lives the life of a hermit, walking around with a bullet lodged near his spine and liable to shift at any moment, and the last thing he wants to hear is that his country needs him-least of all, his ex-best friend Matt Egan, whom he sees as responsible for his present condition.
Against Egan's wishes, the director forces the issue and tries none too subtly to "persuade" Fade to join the team. But Fade, angry and hopeless, is prepared to fight back at any cost; the ensuing confrontation is a bloody one. And the chase is on-will Matt be able to find his friend-turned-fugitive before Fade can take the ultimate revenge?
"Fade" is a remarkable, take-no-prisoners read from an unparalleled writer at the height of his talents.

Every time I read another Kyle Mills book, I think his writing just can't get any better and BA-BAM, he simply blows me away!
Once I start reading his stories, I don't stop until I've read the whole book! And then I'm chomping at the bit to get to his next one. If you like this genre, you will love this author.

Awesome book!! I don't think I've read a book that has kept me holding on with white knuckles to see what is going to happen when I turn the page . . . and then bring tears to my eyes. Great read--amazing story with well defined characters. Definitely a 10 out of 10 for me on this one!!
