His car has been firebombed, his ex is dating someone else, and his twin brother is still out to destroy him.

    Two years ago Jack Morgan was in Rio consulting on security for the World Cup. The tournament went without a hitch. Until a man died in one of the executive hospitality suites during the final, and the autopsy showed the cause to be a rare and deadly virus. The story was kept from the media to avoid causing panic, but Jack feared that the death was no freak occurrence. Now the eyes of the world are once again turned towards Rio for the Olympic Games, and Jack is back in Brazil's beautiful capital.

    Thrilling

    Loved it. Felt like being on a roller coaster. . Thrill ride.
    Was sad it got to an end.
