Reviewed by Allen Hott

Will Robie is back and though a lot of us have a hard time believing that our government would hire hit men to take out those opposed to our ideas, here is the guy who does just that.

He works for the U.S. government incognito and takes out the top men in the various groups who oppose the U.S. way of thinking and doing business.

He basically reports to one man who gives him his assignments and these assignments can be anywhere in the world.

During the operation Reel had discovered that two of the top CIA agents actually were turncoats and were going to not only abort the mission but they planned to kill several high level government personnel.
