Synopsis

Confronted by a pair of strangers and told that he’s the greatest risk to the survival of humanity, Fade is having a bad day.

Thalia’s happy shooting through the scope, which works until the targets decide to get up close and personal. Now she’s just trying to survive.

Jaycee wanted nothing more than a Tuesday night out, only she picked the wrong party. Now bullets are flying, and she’s still got school in the morning.

As Fade works to save his family's lives, he comes to learn the reason the strangers want him dead. There's a way out. A chance to shift the target to someone else. The problem? The wrong people have every interest in keeping the target right where it is, and they'll kill to keep it that way.

A fast-paced novel full of action, complex characters, and tacos, <i>Rakers</i> is the beginning of a full-fledged universe whose heroes take charge of their own destinies, for good or ill.
