About Limits of Protection:

There's an imminent threat to national security and George Hartmann is one of only a handful of patriots who can thwart it.

George never imagined he'd be forced to come out of retirement and rejoin his former special ops colleagues. Not to mention, the timing couldn't be worse. Our military hero turned family man is embroiled in a fight to keep his loved ones safe from ruthless villains who are determined to rehash a vendetta dating back to a shared past life in Ancient Greece.

With the fate of millions on the line, George must put his personal interests aside in service to his country.
Will he find a way to navigate divided loyalties and save the day?

Limits of Protection is the fourth book in the George Hartmann twisty psychological thriller series.

Readers are Raving

WOW! George Hartmann is at it again! If you like your thriller with intense suspense, dramatic emotion, and evocative description, this series is for you. George is trying hard to save his family and now he has to save the world too. All in a day’s work. This is an episodic series best read from beginning to end but, “Limits of Protection” is a “can’t be put down, page-turner” that you’ll want to read! I can hardly wait to see what happens next.
