Product Details

Experience the exhilarating world of The Dedman Emergence, a heart-stopping debut spy thriller that will captivate fans of Ludlum’s Jason Bourne and Greany’s Gray Man.

Immerse yourself in the extraordinary journey of U.S. Army Ranger 1LT Ethan Ross, the lone survivor of a devastating helicopter crash in Afghanistan. With seemingly insurmountable injuries, Ross’s life takes an unexpected turn when he is recruited by the CIA for an off-book operation known as Hydra. Through cutting-edge genetic engineering, Ross undergoes a stunning transformation into a super assassin, surpassing normal physical limitations.

Following the relentless training, Ross evolves into the ultimate CIA operative, a deniable direct-action force of one ready to undertake any mission. His covert and paramilitary training complete, Ross emerges as Jacob Dedman, a mysterious and shadowy asset who ventures across the globe, encountering a colorful array of individuals – some friendly, others dangerously sinister. His mission: to eliminate threats to his country.

As chaos ensues, with a rogue NSA analyst leaking classified information and exposing Hydra, Jacob Dedman finds himself at the center of a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game. With the CIA on the brink of exposure, Dedman’s handler, CIA Special Activities Division Coordinator Gerald “Jerry” Wright, must completely shutter the program to protect the agency’s very existence. To eliminate all traces of Hydra, Wright orders merciless wet teams to terminate everyone associated with the program. But Dedman is not so easily dispatched.

Forced into a thrilling escape from Istanbul and hunted relentlessly, Dedman soon discovers that someone within the CIA has marked him for death. Faced with seemingly insurmountable odds and fighting for his very survival, Dedman embarks on a perilous journey across Europe, tirelessly searching for answers. In this heart-pounding cat-and-mouse chase, Dedman’s relentless pursuit of the truth transforms him from the hunted to the hunter. They should have left him alone.

Audiobook Version

The Dedman Emergence is now available as an audiobook. I’m trying out the new Amazon virtual narration beta. So, this audiobook uses computer-generated voice narration. I’ve listened to the five-minute sample and thought it was actually pretty good. If you prefer audiobooks to reading, try it out. But I recommend listening to the sample first to make certain you’re happy with it. It’s available on Amazon or Audible. $6.99 to buy, or listen free if you have an Audible membership.
