Marcus Rhodes in
Operational Nightmare

M. J. Jurand


Marcus Rhodes is a man caught between worlds and driven by a thirst for justice. Born to a Polish mother and an aristocratic English father, Marcus finds himself expelled from Sandhurst Military Academy after a jaw-shattering confrontation with the commandant.

Disillusioned and estranged from the British Empire, Marcus journeys to his ancestral homeland of Poland, where he transforms into a formidable Grom agent. Teaming up with two skilled Norwegian FSK agents and a determined Serbian Policeman, Marcus is thrust into a mission of global significance. Tasked with unraveling the mysterious American ‘invasion’ of Norway, suspicions within NATO escalate, pointing to possible foul play.

As Marcus and his eclectic team dig deeper, they uncover a web of deception, danger, and unforeseen complexities. The stakes are higher than anyone could have imagined, and Marcus must navigate a treacherous path to unveil the truth.

In this gripping tale of espionage and intrigue, Marcus Rhodes faces a world where trust is a scarce commodity, and the line between ally and adversary blurs in the face of an unimaginable threat.
