When Venezuela’s new president seizes control of oil platforms belonging to US companies a cryptic and powerful international organization decides a change in government is in order for the South American nation.
Established as a front for the CIA to combat the spread of communism to Europe in the aftermath of WWII, the Center for Labor Unity is a powerful force, capable of operating outside of government controls. The CLU’s most efficient operative is Andy Wayne, a capable agent for change who proved himself in Tunisia in the months leading to the Arab spring.
Charged with inciting revolution, Andy enters Venezuela with two allies: Joyia Gabreille, a beautiful representative of Brazil’s national union, and Dane Sinclair, a seasoned operative more than capable of handling the necessary violence that accompanies regime changes.
Unknown to Andy, the US president’s chief of staff wants the mission to fail. To accomplish this, he’s sent a former CIA assassin to South America. Her mission is simple: permanently retire Andy Wayne.
Clandestine reveals a world where international politics hinge on the pervasive influence of powerful labor unions, and ideologies clash for control of the hearts and minds of entire nations.
“Love the many twists and suprises through out the book”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Lisa Gargas
Love the many twists and suprises through out the book. The auther does a great job of inter mixing history with present day events. Hard to put down. Enjoyed the adventure. The ending left me wanting to know what happens next.
