Rated 4.40/5 based on 5 reviews
Two CIA agents work alongside a covert U.S. strike team near the Afghanistan/ Pakistan border.

It's a high stakes life-or-death tactic that they believe they control. Is it possible that they're just pawns in someone else’s game?

About David R. Stookey

For my day job, I'm an engineer at a digital printer manufacturing company in western New York. I'm also a husband, the father of two fantastic girls and a neurotic little dachshund named "Misty."

As an undergraduate, my focus was primarily mathematics and physics. I guess I ultimately needed the "nerdy stuff" for my career, but the class I enjoyed the most was an "Introduction to Writing Fiction." Not only did I learn the basics for my own writing; I got to hear a wide variety of perspectives and techniques from other students.

I still have a great deal to learn, and e-publishing seems like the perfect way to get started.

When I'm not writing, I enjoy flying, skiing and backpacking with my girls. Thanks for taking the time to visit my page, and I hope you enjoy the stories.

Boots on the ground in Afghanistan, these characters are dealing with the real in-your-face war. There's boredom, life-or-death situations, and spies on all sides. It's a dirt war in a dirty world.

Not overly good or bad, the ending made me smile, even though I saw it coming.

Lucky day for me. I'm a bit tired of the technothrillers (though I really enjoy them) you know the books by Tom Clancy and Brad Thor? The books that put you in the middle of an international incident. And there's some really smart spies, Navy Seals and politicians taking great risk to save the planet and ensure freedom. Those books? Well this isn't one of those and that's why I like it. This books has military guys out on the most lonely outpost on the planet, fighting for our freedom, etc. But this is different because it's real. We have real guys here and they are really smart spies, they are CIA operatives. The nice thing about this story is it feels way more real that those fat novels by Clancy and Thor. This story feels like it was written by someone who has actually been out there on the border of bum-fuck Waziristan. This is a fun yet serious short read.

Review by: Malcolm Torres on June 5, 2016 :
A solid short story that puts you on the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan with some disillusioned CIA operatives. The author very quickly sets the scene and the underlying conflict. I was wondering how the author would build conflict and wrap it up in such a short piece, but he handled it wall and delivered the goods. Like the other stories I've read by this author, this story begs to be expanded into a novel or a series.
