When top Army sniper Scott Henderson leaves active duty, he is recruited by two nefarious U.S. senators to become a highly paid contract assassin in service of the government—The Scorpion.
Or so he is told.
After a highly successful start to this new career, Scott is paid handsomely and becomes wealthy quite quickly.
He even picks up a nice sailboat, which he docks next to top-drawer retired Special-Ops investigator Colonel Ryan Gavin, who becomes a good friend.
But the murders Scott carries out of top drug kingpins around the globe may not really be in the best interests of the U.S.
Perhaps they are designed to enrich the two senators and consolidate their power in the worldwide underworld.
As Scott and Col. Gavin begin to get too close to the truth, The Scorpion becomes the target of assassination himself, until he can turn the tables and bring the criminal masterminds to justice.
