SOFT TACO ISLAND
A beautiful female CIA deep cover operative has been arrested and imprisoned on the oddly named Soft Taco Island, and the only person in the world who can rescue her is privatr investigator Tag Finn—a former Special Forces soldier and member of the CIA’s Elite Activities Division. The problem, however, is that Finn walked away from the CIA five years ago and vowed never to return. Having left behind his exciting life as a spy, he spends his days working sordid divorce cases and finding the occasional lost pet—all the while watching in slow agony as his finances and spirit crumble in despair.
All that changes, however, when a beautiful stranger arrives on Finn’s doorstep to convince him to rescue the imprisoned agent. Dragged kicking, screaming, and, in some cases, fornicating back into the game, he sets off on a Caribbean adventure that will put him up against a ruthless French arms dealer intent on supplying the weapons for the largest terrorist attack since September eleven.
Move over James Bond, because Tag Finn is here, and in spite of his very real fear of public restrooms, he will save the girl and the day—or at least die trying.
Tag Finn, an elite CIA operative turned private investigator, just managed to save the former love of his life and thwart an arms deal that would have facilitated the largest terrorist attack since September 11. But, the man behind the arms deal, Adrien Babineux, managed to escape and is on the run in Europe, and the CIA needs Finn to bring him in. What begins as a routine snatch and grab, gets complicated quickly when the arms dealer’s terrorist clients and an unknown black ops team come looking to exact some revenge.
Finn, Babineux, and their small band of compatriots are now on their own as they race across Europe and try to stay one step ahead of their ruthless enemies. They’re out-gunned and out-manned and only have their wits and their will to help them survive, so, buckle up, because this shit is about to get real!
Five years ago, Tag Finn went on his final mission for the CIA’s elite Special Activities Division. It had entailed smuggling a brilliant nuclear scientist named Farid Ardeshir out of Iran, but things got complicated when Iranian agents intercepted them in Istanbul, and Finn was ordered to terminate the scientist rather than let him fall back into enemy hands. Disenchanted with the Agency, he completed the assignment then walked away from a brilliant career in espionage to return home and become a lowly underpaid private investigator.
Current day—a powerful secret society called the Topless Agenda knows the truth of what happened on that mission—that Finn didn’t terminate the scientist, and the man in question has been living in the United Arab Emirates and recently made a discovery that will solve the world’s energy needs.
Now, the Topless Agenda wants Finn to bring the man to the west, as he’s the only person in the world who the scientist will trust, and Finn sets off on a perilous journey across the Middle East, where he must keep his mind sharp and his wits about him as he faces off against dangerous foes and more than a few femme fatales.
Tag Finn’s obese feline neighbor Mr. Pickles has the inexplicably odd habit of attracting trouble, and Finn, having already had to rescue the portly pet three months earlier, is shocked to discover three armed Chinese men attempting a dastardly catnapping. Thwarting their efforts, he and his neighbor Joyce take the troublesome tub of love to the vet to get him microchipped, and they learn that Pickles already has a chip in his neck. But, it’s not the kind found in pets, and instead, is filled with top secret guidance software originating from a Silicone Valley defense contractor.
Finn sets out to uncover Pickle’s unlikely role in this web of international espionage and finds himself embroiled in a deadly game of cat and mouse with a Chinese spy ring and the very beautiful and potentially deadly Cherry Poppins. Utilizing every ounce of his keen mind and unique skills, he faces danger, intrigue, and wild erotic escapades as he unravels the very dramatic tale of Mr. Pickles.
