The B-Squad is an independent group created to fight terrorism.
That is what the members who are recruited using Facebook are told and it sounded right, especially to the small group of people who came from very different backgrounds with very different skill sets. They might be different in so many ways but they did have several things in common - they were all scarred by recent events in their lives and they were all highly gifted in at least one field that would prove vital to the organization. The problem that would face the creators of this group was that if you put together a team capable of smashing your enemies and then let them learn how you had deceived them, it does not work out well.
The recruitment went like this: "eight random people selected from their Facebook profiles to join a counter-terrorist squad. Eight members, four missions, one goal. Stop terrorism."
That sounded especially good to Michael "Mikey" Ryan who was still grieving over the loss of his love though the extent of that love was not really felt until she was gone. Anger over her murder and remorse over his own feelings, he needed an outlet and the B-Squad seemed perfect. He had been chosen for his exceptional drive and leadership abilities and he showed well just how good he was.
And so did the other team members. Until they learned they had been deceived. Then they really got together and showed what they could do. When they were done, though, they had showed themselves how what had been created in a deception for very bad reasons could be one heck of a force used for the right reason.
