    Outsourced, a terrific thriller, reads like the very best non-fiction.  I believed every scene.”

    --James Patterson

    In Outsourced a Pentagon spy infiltrates a for-profit, private military corporation suspected of collaborating with terrorists.  He becomes a target in the multi-billion dollar War on Terror and the only one he can trust is his ex-fiancée.  The problem is the CIA has hired her to kill him.
