"A romping ride. . . . Pashtun will keep you turning the pages
following hero Frank Morgan's plunge into assassination, survival,
and revenge." James Bruno, bestselling author of Havana Queen The
Company has a special secret operation planned for one of their top
agents: the leaders of the Taliban and al-Qaeda terrorist groups
are hiding out in Pashtun country, and they must be eliminated. The
job falls to a man they have named Frank Morgan after the Company's
deadliest agent who stood out as a recruit at Quantico and whose
skills resemble those of his namesake. The other soldiers claim
Frank's abilities as a sniper and a tracker border on the
supernatural and are more than willing to complete this mission
with him. Frank begins his adventure in Afghanistan with another
Company-appointed soldier: an indestructible, lyrical Irishman with
a cutting sense of humor and a bottle of Jameson never far from
hand. After the men rescue a burqa-clad young woman, they soon
discover that the Company has not been honest with them and decide
to take a second mate under their wing a giant lieutenant who had
been previously mixed up with the Taliban and could provide vital
intel for their mission. However, together they quickly learn that
oil, drugs, and greed have led to this quest; assassinating the
terrorists is not their main objective. With the lines now blurred,
their assignment is more complicated than ever. Pashtun in
paperback for the first time depicts the challenges of military
special ops in a boulder-filled landscape, and is told with
compassion for those asked to fight the battles. Skyhorse
