When disgraced S.E.R.E. (Survival-Evasion-Resistance-Escape) instructor, Captain Charles Chauncey Paunce, is asked by the FBI to train the CEO's of the world's most advanced drone manufacturers to resist torture (by torturing them!), he reluctantly agrees. Driven by his desire for redemption and love of country, Chauncey subjects some of the world's most rich and powerful men to the harsh interrogation resistance techniques designed for Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and other highly trained spec ops troops. Unable to bear Chauncey's intensive sessions, many of the CEOs break and unwittingly reveal secrets. But it seems they are the same secrets -- held only by them -- and unlock a ruthless conspiracy. Aimed at taking away the constitutional rights to privacy and freedom enjoyed by every American citizen the plot reaches the highest levels of the government and the military establishment. Only too happy to take his payment and go on his way, Chauncey survives an assassination attempt aimed at keeping him quiet about what the CEOs said. Kwing that the only way he will survive is to take down whoever tried to kill him first, Chauncey leaps into survival mode. With the aid of his expert intelligence skills and a group of former Navy SEALs, Chauncey fights through a web of cutting-edge, weaponized drones and a string of massacres of high-level engineers. From a desolate village in Afghanistan to the Mojave Desert to the skies over San Diego, this story is a thrill ride that combines real modern-day issues with enhanced robotics, illegal surveillance, explosions and redemption.
