In Afghanistan, a diplomatic protection mission goes horribly wrong, catapulting an aspiring politician to the heights of power and leaving a skilled intelligence operative under federal indictment.


Years later, veteran police officer Bobby Ryan stumbles across a strange list linking ten jobs to ten cities and within hours he is dead.

Are the two somehow connected?

As FBI counterterrorism specialist Sam Calvert pieces together the clues, the special agent realizes that the investigation's prime suspect may be the only one who can stop a deadly new attack in time.

The question is: Will a man betrayed by his own government still want to serve it?




Professional Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
"Howell’s gift for snappy dialogue and intricate plot twists keeps the story moving, and his timely, though familiar, theme of government corruption, negligence and political correctness involving the war on terror hits home. Fans of Tom Clancy’s meticulous page-turners will appreciate the book’s sublime detail and cracking wit."

US Review of Books
"Expendable Assets is an action packed, quick-paced novel, that centers around those individuals fighting in the trenches of modern warfare, both domestically and abroad. Told from the point of view of the peripheral characters, adjuncts to those in power, the crux of the novel is about how the business of war is conducted, and in the end, those who are factored out of the equation. Howell focuses on the undercover operatives behind the scenes, the ones who are truly running the show; they are the oil in the proverbial war machine."
