In the days leading up to the presidential election, a down-on-his-luck alcoholic is recruited by a wealthy businessman to deliver briefcases across America.

Desperate to win back the affections of his estranged daughter, Marcus Mills takes on the job and meets a bizarre and dangerous assortment of crooked politicians, corrupt cops, human-sacrificing cultists, an insane pastor, a pot-growing militia, Kek-worshiping nihilists, and various resistance leaders.

Very quickly Marcus sees dark forces operating in this world far beyond the evil we face every day, barely hidden from reality. As the world around him becomes progressively more insane, Marcus realizes everything is linked to the deliveries he's making—and it may just be too late to turn back.

Scene from KENJI:
...Kenji burst into the bushes and froze; the light was completely gone and it was deadly dark. Shadows suddenly looked like people, tree branches became arms. He was at a disadvantage here, and he knew it. Something came for him, and in the darkness he ducked. The wispy sound of cold steel went over his head.
Kenji’s hand found a rock on the ground, a poor weapon of opportunity. He was so eager to stop Maiko he hadn’t bothered with his own safety. Now Kenji faced an armed opponent, virtually blind, with nothing more than a rock. Something moved, like two silhouettes merging, it was the most he could see. Kenji backed up, his senses on full alert. He waited for one clear sound, and he held the rock ready to hurl it. A trace glimmer of light reflected off of polished steel ever so briefly…
Kenji hurled the rock at her, it landed with a thud and a yelp. She snarled and Kenji could see her now, stepping into the slightest amount of persistent twilight. She came at him, blade held high, angry and careless. Kenji grabbed a tree branch and snapped it off with a chop, swinging it back to block her attack. He used the momentum of impact to swing the branch back around and smack Maiko in the face, tossing an arc of blood from her nose. Kenji wrapped his arms around her in a bear hug and tackled her to the ground.
“No!” she screamed. Searching hands gripped the handle of the blade and wrestled it from her, her body was pinned to the floor beneath his.
“Why did you do this, Maiko?!” Kenji yelled.
Maiko’s eyes were fixated on something other than Kenji, and that’s when he realized they were not alone.
“You defeated an army at Nagoyama with half a dozen soldiers. Well, I did it with one girl. Who is the greater warrior now?” Kenichi’s question landed hard on Kenji. That’s what this was about?
“Why? How…” Kenji mouthed, screaming inside but too stunned to actually be coherent. Kenichi had done all of this, out of revenge? Every fear his men had was suddenly justified...

New, revised edition!


Cerena's face transformed in the last moment's of her life, the fear fleeing, and a strange, calm serenity overtook her. Her lips moved, whispering three words.

The Assassin was forever changed.

A decade of blood stained his hands. None of his victims had ever weighed down his conscience. He was merely the tool, the living weapon wielded by his employers. His victims had begged for their lives, had cursed him with their dying breath, and stared in uncomprehending disbelief.

But none had ever been calm in their final moments. None had ever stared up at him with such serenity.

Cerena's blue eyes and her final words haunted the Assassin. Three simple words plunged his soul into torment.

Could a heart that had long been dead and desiccated beat with remorse? Can the Assassin survive against the crushing weight of his crimes?
