CIA operative, Titus Ray, is used to helping his protégé, Ben Mitchell, stay out of trouble.
This time, though, Ben’s trouble is brought on by his father, Senator Elijah Mitchell.

When a shakeup in the leadership at the CIA opens up the division head position at the Russian desk, Senator Mitchell uses his influence to recommend Ben for the job. The problem is, Ben doesn’t want a desk job. He’s content being a covert operative.

To thwart his father’s efforts, Ben plans to showcase his skills as an intelligence officer by volunteering for an upcoming mission to Venezuela.To do this, Ben needs Titus’s help, and although Titus agrees to be part of the operation, he discovers there’s a problem with Ben’s plan. Well, several problems.

First, Ben fails to see the big picture . . .
The objective of the mission is to gain intel on an Iranian military base being built in Venezuela, but when Titus gets concerned about what else the Iranians are doing there, Ben isn’t interested in hearing it.

Second, Ben is distracted by the female on the operational team . . .
Helina Vargas, an attractive, vivacious woman, is the third person on the operational team and captures Ben’s attention immediately. Unfortunately, Ben’s attention needs to be on the operation.

Third, Ben fails to recognize an obvious threat to operational security . . .
As the mission reaches its apex, and the protocols have to be changed, Ben’s inexperience becomes evident, threatening the operation itself.

Suddenly, both men find themselves in trouble, more trouble than they ever expected. Can Titus get them out of the mess they’re in, or will Ben salvage the operation and bring it to a successful conclusion? And then what? Is Ben still destined to take a desk job?

CIA operative Titus Ray knows nothing about his next assignment.

Nothing except the person in charge of the operation will be Ben Mitchell.

Operation Concerned Citizen will be Ben’s first assignment as the primary officer in charge of a mission. When Titus learns it’s a simple mission with a clear objective but requires a complicated plan, he questions whether Ben will be able to handle it. When he discovers there are underlying circumstances, he questions whether he’ll be able to let Ben handle it.

It’s a simple mission . . .
Ben, as head of an operational team that includes Titus, will escort Boris Khrasnoff, a Russian defector, and his daughter back to the U.S.

It has a clear objective . . .
Since the defector has intel about the Kremlin’s secret plans to invade a neighboring country, the mission’s objective is to make sure Russian military intelligence is not aware of Boris Khrasnoff’s intentions to defect.

It requires a complicated plan . . .
Ben and Titus, along with a woman from the U.S. State Department, will pose as members of a delegation to an economic summit in Brussels, Belgium, a summit Boris Khrasnoff will attend as part of the Russian delegation.

There are underlying circumstances . . .
Ben has doubts about a woman on the team, while Titus is concerned about the reliability of an old acquaintance. Ultimately, both men have issues with their respective roles in the operation.

When the simple mission proves difficult, Titus discovers he’s not the man he thought he was, and he’s not the man he wants to be. He’s a man learning to live out his faith while living in the shadows, and sometimes those shadows aren’t shadows at all.
