The pair worked undercover for the IIB, the Intergalactic Investigations Bureau and they knew the risks. They were aware that each time they went on a mission it could be their last. Abandoning his partner when a mission went south was the hardest thing Lark Zaccaro ever did. He knew the chances of Derek Carlson surviving in a Lithusian prison were slim to nil, but he had no choice at the time.
Six months later Lark feels as though he’s slowing losing his humanity while on a mission he took so that the IIB would secure Derek’s release. When a stranger is caught lurking in the jungle Lark is struck speechless to see that they’ve captured Derek, who now believes Lark’s a double agent for abandoning him. How could two men who secretly cherish each other make such a mess of things? Secrets eventually have a way of coming out. A little honesty might be a good thing right now before someone goes too far.
A gritty, brutal tale of survival takes place in Abandoned. Lark and Derek barely manage to claw their way to the truth in this harsh story. Truth works both ways. The plotline takes readers to a tough, mean, sweaty future where spying is still happening and the good guys are still emotionally stunted. Abandoned gives a pair of bitter men the opportunity to make things right in a bleak, distant world.
