ABOUT EXIT STRATEGY
In the stunning follow-up to The Second Life of Nick Mason, the remarkable hero is ever more under the thumb of his kingpin master, who has upped the ante with a formidable new mission…
Nick Mason has been given a true mission impossible: Infiltrate WITSEC, the top secret federal witness protection program that has never been compromised, locate the three men who put his boss Darius Cole behind bars for life, and kill them.
But first he has to find them, and the clock is ticking. Darius Cole is on trial in federal court in Chicago, appealing his conviction—and these three key witnesses are either his ticket to freedom or the final nail in his coffin. If they testify, Darius Cole will never step foot in the outside world again. If they are killed, Cole will walk a free man.
It’s a brutal test of Mason’s will to survive, and this time there are no limits to how far Mason will go to fulfill the contract he’s been given—because the consequences of failure are not only his life, but the lives of his ex-wife and daughter, the two people he’ll do anything to protect.
As he risks everything to complete his mission, Mason finds himself being hunted by the very man he replaced, the ruthless assassin who once served, and then betrayed, Darius Cole. Rather than waiting to be found, he has escaped witness protection to hunt down and kill Mason.
As Mason’s mission comes to a devastating final showdown, Mason makes a discovery that will change everything: Darius Cole’s Chicago empire is actually just one branch of an international criminal syndicate, and at its helm is a faceless criminal mastermind wanted by governments around the world. He’s been calling the shots since the day Nick Mason stepped out of prison, and he’s got big plans for his new top assassin…
