Synopsis: When ATF Special Agent David Ward infiltrates the world of radical environmentalists, his mission is to stop an eco-terrorist group determined to eradicate pollution—and the polluters who get in their way. It’s a case of Green Gone Extreme!
The Earth Martyrs Brigade will stop at nothing to destroy those corporations and individuals that they deem a threat to Mother, their worshipful name for Mother Earth. Ward joins the group, befriending its cultish followers, only to learn that their plans for destruction and anarchy far exceed anything he could have imagined.
Loosely based on the joint FBI/ATF Operation Backfire that decimated the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), this story imagines what would happen if like-minded groups adopted the more extreme tactics of today’s terrorists and what it might take to stop them. It is a scenario that is all too real, and a threat not widely known to the American public.
Deep Green Cover is the second book in the Deep Cover series, following Ward’s debut adventure in Deep White Cover.
