About The Pieces:

George Hartmann thought he'd seen rock bottom. It turns out he wasn't even close.

Now his precious young son has been kidnapped while he's half a world away. His beloved wife remains hospitalized in intensive care. His uncle is missing in combat and presumed dead. And his country requires his service for a second top-secret mission to thwart an international terrorist cell that's planning a chemical weapons attack on U.S. soil using the technology he and his uncle created.

If George crosses enemy lines to search for his uncle, he won't get to his wife and son in time. If he goes to his young family back home in the States, it will mean sentencing his uncle to certain death. And if he does either without fulfilling his duty as a soldier, the terrorists will win and millions of Americans will perish.

George is convinced his troubles have to do with a vendetta dating back to a past life in Ancient Greece. But he can't quite make sense of the connections. Faced with impossible stakes on multiple fronts, he must pick up the pieces and forge a path forward.

The Pieces is the fifth book in the George Hartmann Series of twisty psychological thrillers.
