SAFE HAVENS: Shadow Masters (series premier)                                  

Sean Havens served the government black ops underworld for over twenty years.  He lived and operated through corporate cut-outs and within the dark recesses of humanity to protect the country he loved.  But when the family he loved was unprotected by his country, Havens' clandestine double life follows him home colliding two very separate worlds. 

As a corrupt oversight-exempt program drives him to soldier on, Havens struggles to hold on to what he has left of his formerly distanced life.  Shock awaits as he learns who is friend or foe in the obscure domestic battlefield.  To find sanctuary, he must navigate the intertwined shadows of underhanded proxy surrogate schemes, staged terror attacks, and a long thought to be disbanded CIA rival--The Pond.

If Havens survives as both protector and punisher, will his soul be among the body count?  Few will find safe haven amidst those seeking revenge and refuge within the twisted wreckage of covert eliminations and set-ups.
