Book Two of the Black Flagged Series
Two years after shocking Washington D.C. with a brutal betrayal, General Terrence Sanderson prepares for his triumphant return. With his illegal covert operations group resurrected, he waits in the shadows for the right moment to demonstrate the grim necessity of the Black Flag program. His opportunity may arrive sooner than expected.
At Langley, Karl Berg is appointed to a new position with the CIA's National Clandestine Service. As senior liaison to the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Intelligence Center, he makes a disturbing discovery. Russian Federation intelligence services are secretly scouring Europe to find Anatoly Reznikov, a rogue Russian scientist at the top of every nation's WMD watch list. Criminally obsessed with reviving a project long banned by the Russian government, Reznikov has finally found partners willing to fund his project, for an unimaginable price.
While the Russians pursue Reznikov, Berg goes "off the books" again and sends one of Sanderson's Black Flag teams to investigate. Led by Daniel Petrovich, the team uncovers a twisted conspiracy aimed at striking a horrific blow against the West, with the frightening potential to bring the United States to its knees. With the help of Berg's shadowy network, Petrovich races against the clock to find Reznikov, before the Russians eliminate the only link to the emerging worldwide threat.
Nothing is what it seems in this gritty world of covert operatives and back room Washington agendas.
: Black Flagged Redux flows seamlessly into Black Flagged Apex. Although the two stories are closely related, they vastly differ in scope, plot and the characters involved.
"Great series of books, if you like Vince Flynn, Nelson Demille, Tom Clancy novels you will love this series by Steven Konkoly. They are fast moving, and interesting." Amazon Reviewer 2013 "Black Flagged Redux is a no-holds-barred, bare-knuckled brawl of a thriller that doesn't let go from the opening pages. Spanning the globe and weaving an open throttle tale of intrigue, betrayal, high-stakes and all-or-nothing outcomes, Redux surpasses the original in the series and takes Konkoly's writing to a new level." Amazon Reviewer 2012 "Nothing replaces real-life experience in writers of military black-ops adventures. Steven Konkoly's in-depth knowledge of the ins and outs of the ordinary Special Forces soldier's life as well as his well researched exposition of Pentagon and Washington politics and bureaucracy make the author a rising star." Amazon Reviewer 2013 "This was a heavily researched book, and that research shows up in a myriad of details that make the people and places come alive." Amazon Reviewer 2012 "Steve Konkoly is one talented writer and knows how to tell a story. The action in this story is non-stop and his characters are memorable. General Sanderson is back and he's craftier and more duplicitous than ever." Amazon Reviewer 2012 "The chapters are excellently written in detail and you feel like you are there, or watching it in 1080 HD blu-ray. The authenticity and level of articulation that goes into each story is amazing and makes everything real, and always intense." Amazon Reviewer 2013 "This talented author brings the goods. He takes you inside and let's you see behind the curtain. Either he's been there, or has some great sources. His knowledge of weaponry, covert ops, and insider politics gives this thriller a credible, scary premise." Amazon Reviewer 2012 "Konkoly has a real knack for putting the reader right into the thick of a firefight, maintaining a fine balance between description and detail that never gets tedious or repetitive. His characters are distinctive and enjoyable and, best of all, are drawn in (realistic) subtleties of grays rather than blacks and whites." Amazon Reviewer 2013
