Dylan Hunter is an investigative reporter.
Really. That is what he does for a living.
What he does when not on the job is, though, what he really does. He hunts down those that seem beyond the ability of the system to bring to justice. The adage that power corrupts is proven over and over and often there is no one that can find a way to stop it.
Hunter should know. As a reporter he sees it. He writes about it so other people can see it. Then everyone moves on to the next story and the bad guy gets away with it. Except for when Hunter does not move on. Then the bad guy finds there is someone to answer to.
Annie Woods is someone that Hunter is in love with. As an analyst with the CIA she is able to learn a lot of her fellow citizens and one person she is very interested in, as the series begins, is who the vigilante exacting justice really is. She does not know her target is her love. He does not know that his love is after him.
More on this intriguing series after I have finished the books.
