T1 Wayne Shelton
When a high-ranking official of a small nation in the Caucasus is killed in a car accident, the plans of a massive multinational corporation are derailed by one man: the unfortunate French trucker who caused the accident. Pressure from the unions in France and the military in Khalakjistan prevents a quick diplomatic solution. So, to secure its own interests, the corporation calls upon the one man who can break the trucker out of prison and disarm the confrontation: Wayne Shelton.
T2 Wayne Shelton
Wayne Shelton is ready to proceed with the mission and spring his quarry from a Khalak prison. There is a small concern over Madrier, the Frenchman who talked his way onto the team – only to abandon them after he was revealed to be the son of a Khalak dissident… A job’s a job, though, and Shelton gave his word to his employer. But what if there are other separate, secret interests among the little band that could jeopardize everything?
T3 Wayne Shelton
Wayne Shelton has a sad duty to fulfil: give the heirs of his deceased team members their share of the pay for the disastrous Khalakjistan mission. But the solemnity of the task is quickly shattered: two hitmen attempt to shoot him in South America, then a bomb is placed under his car in the USA... Who exactly placed such an extravagant price on Shelton’s head? And who’s the mysterious biker trailing him?
T4 Wayne Shelton
During a garden party in California, Shelton is approached by a clearly determined individual. The man tells him that he is there on behalf of Wayne’s son, who apparently tracked down one Rod Hooker. The thing is, Sergeant Hooker once served under Shelton in Vietnam, on a mission that ended in betrayal and carnage. The hunt is on for our trouble shooter for hire, although there is one problem: he’s never had any children...
T5 Wayne Shelton
Thirty years after Hooker’s betrayal and the massacre at Cao-Dinh, Shelton discovered he had the next best thing to a son ... and lost him immediately. Filled with hatred and rage, the adventurer methodically tracks down Mrs Yoon, Hooker’s right arm and murderer of Tran. It’s a long and obstacle-strewn quest, but Wayne is a professional. Which does leave the hardest question of all: what will he do once he’s found his old nemesis?
