Mission-is thought to be “a quiet end,” he is more than happy to be out from under the thumb of the FBI and free from the bureaucracy of office life. But Corey realizes something the U.S. government doesn’t: The all-too-real threat of a newly resurgent Russia.

by Ben Rehder

Blanco County game warden John Marlin has dealt with these kinds of looters before, so it’s no surprise when the sheriff asks him to assist with the investigation.
