Undercover – A Prequel
In his quest for vengeance, he’s turned himself into a criminal…
Niko Andros has burned for revenge since the day his father was paralyzed in a drive-by-shooting ordered by Mexican crime lord Jaime Alvarez. Knowing that the best way to take down his family’s age-old enemy is from within, Niko turns himself into a criminal, then accepts a job within Alvarez’s criminal organization.
Jaime Alvarez gloats over the way he’s manipulated Niko into turning his back on the law abiding Andros family. He believes that each illegal, dishonorable act Niko is forced to commit binds him tighter to the criminal life. Trusting that Niko will never risk his own freedom, or give up his growing power, by betraying Alvarez, the crime lord rapidly promotes Niko.
Despite the lip service he pays to his boss, Niko has never forgotten his purpose—to put Alvarez behind bars. He might no longer be an honorable man that his family can be proud of, but Niko will risk everything in order to make certain that Alvarez never hurts his family again. Even if Niko has to go down with him.
Coming Soon in the Surgical Strike Unit series!
