How does a Secret Service agent protecting the president of the United States find himself becoming a part of a federal law enforcement team that’s so secretive that their deaths are faked? The team and its support personnel, known only as “the unit”, unknown to him, have had their eye on him.
How he ended up in the unit is not supposed to be known. However, when his wife—the unit’s only female member and the team’s sniper—insists on knowing, she manages to get him to tell his story.
This prequel to THE UNIT series is that story: the human side of how a young man became convinced that protecting the president should be his goal, and how protecting the president led to him doing much, much more. It takes you step-by-step through his journey, letting you see through his eyes and his thoughts how he traveled along the way. By the end of the book, you will know how he got his curious code name—Spud—and understand what is meant by the phrase “keeping it real.”
