Summary: Things haven't been great since Ian woke up in captivity four days ago, and they're about to get worse. And a lot more confusing.
“Joe Byrne?” Ian said in a strangled voice. For clarification, he added, “You’re texting the Director of the CIA, Joe Byrne?”
“I send him birthday cards, too,” Alex said, his attention mostly back on the laptop. “He keeps asking for my address so he can return the favor.”
Ian looked around the transport at the combat team. “Birthday cards,” he said flatly.Marcus shrugged. “Mister Gregorovich told him he should stop.”
Recs and Reviews
It’s a pretty usual story. After your spy brother and his wife get killed in a plane bombing, you (who are also a spy) take in his son. But then you get killed. Oops. And somehow find yourself yanked into the future, where the aforementioned nephew now works for the organization that was responsible for your death. And he has a disturbingly close relationship with the guy who killed you. And your brother is alive. You know, typical. Ongoing work with high-quality writing, excellent characterization, and some brilliant twists. I do not exaggerate when I say that every time I get a notification that it’s been updated, I scream a little. General audiences, complete. Takes place post-chapter 96 of DDBS.
