Mark Ingram thought his days in Kenya were over. He flew all the way to Washington, DC for romance, but a military coup erupts back in Africa. His Blood Brother, Rheinhart ‘Rhino’ Fabian is placed in harm’s way. Mark overcomes all obstacles to return, collecting a small group of international operatives to join him in the fight. 

A battle against the vastly outnumbering rebel forces, led by a rogue general ensues. After the bloody ‘Battle for Mobutto’s Estate’ and the defeat of the rebels with the help of the Black Eagle Force, Mark returns to Nairobi, only to find a new enemy. The Yakuza leader who previously led the horrific poaching and smuggling operation for elephant ivory and rhino horn had a brother who has sworn revenge on his brother’s killer. He sets a tender trap to draw Mark into his lair.

Mark finds an unexpected ally, forms a tiny team and sets off to Hong Kong to find and destroy the Dragon Master of the Big Circle Triad—the man ultimately responsible for the illegal poached ivory and rhino horn trade in the Orient.
Mark Ingram stands up when called. In BLOOD BROTHERS his creed is unchanged…”Anyone and everyone who stands against us…will die.”
