“We can no longer sit back and watch while the world tears itself apart and the major world powers do nothing. This is a time for decisive action, not a time to tread water.”

With the crash of the Euro leading to a complete global economic meltdown, the world at large is in a complete state of chaos. With countries around the world ranging from complete lawlessness to states of martial law, it’s no exaggeration to say that the world itself is in peril. Though the governments seem powerless to implement a workable and democratic solution to the state of things, there is one group who is not content to sit back and watch life as they know it irrevocably change.

They are TRDWTR (Technological Research and Development Working Toward a Resolution), and they are a highly skilled band of operatives who take on the missions no government will touch – well, not overtly anyway. The operatives themselves are a mishmash of personalities and skillsets, from their grief stricken founder to their excitable flight commander to the mysterious figure known only as the Wraith. Each of them has their own reasons for joining TRDWTR, and not surprisingly, each has their secrets as well. Regardless of their personal motivations, all of them takes their lives in their hands each time they set out on a mission.

In Germany, the economic disaster has been handled by the decidedly evil General Kirklau, who uses the theft of nuclear weapons from France to make their intentions known to the world. It is up to TRDWTR to retrieve the weapons and avert disaster before it’s too late, but some of the members of the team have let personal grudges affect their work. With retrieval of the weapons of paramount important, they’ll have to put aside grievances and pull off their plan without a hitch if the mission is to be a success.

TRDWTR is a compelling series, with multi-faceted characters that leave you guessing about the undercurrents that lay below the surface. With personalities ranging from taciturn to loquacious (and everything in between), it leaves plenty of room for some truly interesting interactions between them, both in the field and off. And with so much left in the air as to why it is they do what they do, the end of the novel only leaves readers wanting for more. The engaging story line is accompanied by a gritty art style that is both compelling and quite realistic. It’s an impressive work that does not disappoint.
