“I’ve never known Mack to make a threat he was not prepared to carry out,” I said carefully. “He doesn’t bluff.”
Frank Cardova provides logistic support for a highly effective team of deadly operatives known as Charlemagne. Mack, the team’s knife-wielding leader, and his son Charlie arrive on Frank’s doorstep bringing chaos, terror and violence with them. The last thing Frank wants to see is Louis, the volatile marksman of the team, anywhere near his home, let along sitting at the kitchen table drinking a martini meant for him. His subordinate Steve Donovan faces an uncertain future after the fall out of a recent disaster puts his family at risk and Mack offers him a chance to join the team. As Frank watches Steve turn into a killer and his own wife and daughter discover what his thirty-year career has been all about, he helps the team save the lives of Steve’s family while dreading the danger to his own.
Brevet Wedge is the third book in K.A. Bachus’s unflinching Charlemagne Files series. Can Frank trust anyone in his immediate circle?

An action-packed adventure story with expertly woven sub-plots. Plenty of drama and tension for the protagonist and a life-or-death battle for his team. This is an easy, light read that will keep you turning pages. -- L. Van Onselen, UK
