Max Bowman is a hero for today's America — mostly because he has absolutely no idea what he's doing.
Years after being tossed on the trash heap by the CIA, Max is just getting by — and fine with it. Who cares if his future is in the rearview mirror? As long as he's got a Jack Daniels in his hand and his creatively-foul-mouthed singer girlfriend on his arm, why shake things up?
Then his old Agency boss shows up with a job that's way above his paygrade — tracking down the truth about a war hero who was killed in Afghanistan. Because some people think this dead man isn't so dead. Max treats it as a paycheck and a big fat waste of time. Until that house explodes. And a guy who looks a lot like the hero of a popular '60s TV Western puts a target on his forehead. Oh, and then there's that secret para-military outfit in Montana, which wants to end his assignment in the most unpleasant way possible.
It all happens in DARK SKY, a sardonic spin on the traditional thriller and the beginning of Max Bowman's hilarious and harrowing misadventures.
