Hunting Season


When three college students hiking in the Appalachians mysteriously vanish, the FBI is called in to investigate. Finding no immediate leads and no indications of a criminal act, the authorities at the Bureau put the case on the back burner. But the father of one of the missing-Edwin Kriess-isn't willing to just let it drop. Kriess is a retired FBI agent, who was also a former member of an elite CIA task force expertly trained in the art of hunting down and retrieving rogue agents. His career burned down after a mission to uncover a Chinese espionage plot resulted in a blood-bath involving civilians. Kriess was quietly sacrificed to extinguish the scandal, and has since lived in semi-exile down in southwestern Virginia. Now he's back in action - if very unofficially - and will do anything in his power to find his daughter. Relying on the specialized tactics and lethal maneuvers from his man-hunting past as an Agency "sweeper," he mounts his own search and investigation. Crossing paths with the Bureau and other government agencies, Kriess becomes targeted for retrieval by one of his own kind. As he tracks through a deadly maze of political scandal, personal revenge, and high-level corruption, Kriess discovers that it's hunting season-on himself, his family, and, ultimately, the United States government.
