The Operator by Nicholas Orr
Thomas Thrasher, a decorated United States Marine combat veteran turned military contractor, had survived the threats and dangers of war overseas and set up a comfortable, well-organized existence for himself.
Thrasher’s life was going exactly the way he planned until the day he received a message for a former lover, desperately begging him for help.
Without much warning, Thrasher would be thrust into a world of drugs, deception, corruption, and organized crime.
"The Operator" is the first book by Nicholas Orr, a friend of Professor Paul's.
