Devils in Exile
Chuck Hogan

Neal Maven returns to Boston from his tour in Iraq only to discover that the country he vowed to protect has little use for him now.

And then he meets fellow vet Brad Royce. Royce is everything Maven wants to be: charismatic and confident, principled, wealthy, and with a beautiful woman on his arm. Not just any beautiful woman, but Danielle Vetti — the most stunning girl from Maven's high school.

Royce offers Maven a much-needed job, and Maven becomes a part of Royce's team of "sugar bandits", a group of fellow veterans who use their military skills to intercept major drug deals, taking the dirty money while destroying the product — a get-rich scheme with a clear moral imperative. Suddenly, Maven's life is better than he ever thought possible: a soldier in a civilian's world. But nothing is as it seems, and Maven is in too deep, and can see no way out …
