His body was hardened from months of grueling training. Moisture funneled to the center of his chest and rippled over his abs before disappearing into the waistband of his trunks.
Miles Stevens sat poolside at his Tampa home wearing only swim trunks and a towel draped over his neck. He’d just finished a five-mile run before taking a refreshing dip in the pool. As he dried in the late morning sun, he spoke in Arabic to the computer tablet propped on his lap.
“How are you?” the program asked.
“Ana bekhair, shokran!” Miles replied.
It had been five months since Miles heard from his CIA superior, Dr. Robert Jones. The February communication had been short. Appearing on Miles’ laptop, Dr. Jones told him, “Spend the coming months getting into the best shape of your life and becoming fluent in Arabic. Details on your next mission will come soon.”
CYBER ONE, the second novel in the Miles Stevens Series, is coming this summer.
