Strom Industries’s troubleshooter Paul Trouble gets roused from sleep — the CEO has been kidnapped, vanishing from the negotiation table of a critical ongoing thirty billion dollar business deal. With FBI and Boston’s Police on the case there doesn’t seem to be a lot that’s left for Paul but to hold the hand of the wealthy Strom Industries owner Family.
Step-by-step the one handed former elite soldier and Ex-CIA spymaster who became an accountant is drawn into a net of intrigue and deceit where no one seems to be what they appear to be. The Strom Industries’ owner family is a match for Dallas and The Sopranos, a suspiciously well-organized Animal Activist group is getting massive media attention, and the kidnappers themselves are double-crossed by their own.
After a catastrophic first ransom exchange failure, Paul gets benched and thrown off the case. Paul, Amy and Tom continue following leads on their own. When a lukewarm trail suddenly turns into a ‚die hard in the snowed-in wilderness‘ situation, Paul and his boss have a group of elite mercenaries on their trail and nothing to loose. And a lot of people find out that snow also comes in the color ‚red‘!
Troublemaker is the second Paul Trouble Troubleshooter thriller by Alex Ames. Please also check out Alex’s other novels Troubleshooter, Trouble at Christmas, A Brilliant Plan and Brilliant Actors, available in print on Amazon and through most major e-tailers in electronic format.
