Meet Shane Laughlin, the hero of bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann’s new novel Born to Darkness, in a special eBook short story about his final mission as an officer with SEAL Team Thirteen—the mission that strips him of his command, earns him a dishonorable discharge, and leaves him blacklisted and unlikely to find work in the darkly futuristic world of the mid-twenty-first century.
The assignment seems simple enough: insert into a dangerous, war-torn country and take out a deadly terrorist. But from the moment that Shane injures his ankle in what should have been a routine parachute landing, it’s clear that Murphy’s Law—whatever can go wrong, will go wrong—is in effect. And sure enough, the situation goes from bad to worse, until Shane faces what seems like the ultimate no-win scenario. In his quest to save both an innocent woman and the SEALs under his command, he’s willing to put himself in harm’s way, risking everything he’s worked for—his career, and even his life.
