The first of a three-novel series, Mission Compromised introduces Major Peter J. Newman, a U.S. marine assigned to fill a top-secret White House National Security Council staff position. In these novels, Newman discovers secrets such as how covert missions are being compromised, why high-ranking FBI and CIA spies rarely go on trial, and why the United Nations has a military command center.

In this first book, a mission to the Middle East to eliminate top terrorist leaders, including Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein is compromised when a top official tips off the intended targets. Everyone on the mission is killed except Peter Newman. Now Newman must find out what happened—and why.
