In the aftermath of the brutal attack on his family compound, Alex Fletcher embraces his rapidly expanding role within the New England Regional Recovery Zone (RRZ).
Fueled by a limitless drive to protect his family and a rekindled sense of duty, he enlists the reluctant aid of a local militia commander--to ease the public's fears of a federal government takeover.
As Captain Fletcher digs deeper into the government's plans, he starts to question the federal government's intentions--and ability to stabilize the situation in New England.

The bad news doesn't end there.
Alex discovers that Eli Russell has rebuilt his militia--with the intention of hastening the Regional Recovery Zone's downfall. Obsessed with stopping the deranged psychopath that attacked his family, Alex scours the back roads and rural towns of southern Maine to find him--unaware that Eli's plans are far more personal.

Daniel Petrovich, the most lethal operative created by the Department of Defense's Black Flag Program, protects a secret buried in the deepest vaults of the Pentagon.

Book Four in the Black Flagged Series
With the most recent bioterrorism threat against the United States neutralized, and Dr. Anatoly Reznikov in secret custody; CIA Deputy Director Karl Berg proposes a more permanent solution to prevent future attacks.
A covert raid by General Sanderson's Black Flag unit deep inside Russia...to destroy a bioweapons program that should have ended with the Cold War.
The United States isn't the only nation looking to tie up loose ends. The sudden abduction of a CIA officer in Stockholm exposes the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service's (SVR) ruthless campaign to discover the truth behind the massacre of an elite Spetsnaz team sent to eliminate Reznikov...and permanently bury his knowledge of Vektor's sinister purpose.
When the SVR investigation takes a turn that could threaten the mission against Vektor Labs, Berg goes "off the books" like never before to even the odds.
Through an intricate web of unsavory alliances, deviously orchestrated political maneuvers and shockingly brutal black-ops sanctions, Karl Berg will set in motion an unstoppable chain of events with the potential to ignite a new Cold War.
Black Flagged Vektor continues the series' tradition of gritty, unapologetic storytelling, plunging readers even deeper into the murky, shark infested waters navigated by covert operators and their puppet masters.

Was, wenn der Weltuntergang, den man seit Jahren predigt, endlich eintritt?
Alex Fletcher, Irakkriegsveteran und Pharmavertreter, weiß selbst, dass seine Nachbarn, Freunde und Verwandten ihn für mehr als nur ein bisschen paranoid halten. Aber seine Erfahrungen aus dem Krieg und die Schrecken, gegen die er jeden Tag Medikamente verkauft, geben ihm auch allen Grund dazu.
Seit Jahren bereitet er sich auf die nächste Katastrophe vor, sei es nun ein Krieg, eine Naturkatastrophe, die Zombie-Apokalypse oder halt eine Pandemie. Von seiner Frau unterstützt, von seinen Nachbarn belächelt und von seinem Bruder ausgelacht, ist er einer der wenigen, die vorbereitet sind, als die Pandemie die Bilderbuchlandschaft der Durham Road im südlichen Maine erreicht.
Wie Alex weiß, kann nur die strikte Isolation garantieren, dass seine Familie von dieser neuen Krankheit verschont bleibt. Doch all seine Vorbereitungen, Vorräte, Checklisten und Notfallpläne helfen wenig, als er erkennt, dass die Pandemie selbst ihr geringstes Problem sein wird. Während Lebensmittel und medizinische Versorgung immer knapper werden, tauchen neue Gefahren auf. Aggressive Nachbarn, verzweifelte Freunde, Flüchtlinge und Plünderer – immer wieder wird Alex gezwungen, sich in die Schicksale der Nachbarschaft einzumischen und Entscheidungen zu treffen, die ihn bis an die Grenzen seiner Menschlichkeit treiben.
Ein spannungsgeladener Endzeit-Thriller, der ein erschreckend realistisches Szenario beschreibt, nicht aus der Sicht der großen Helden, Virenforscher, Militärs und Politiker, sondern aus dem ganz persönlichen Blickwinkel eines Familienvaters, der seine Frau und Kinder beschützen will, während seine Welt um ihn Stück für Stück zusammenschrumpft und auf die Schicksale der direkten Nachbarschaft reduziert wird.
