The Sniper

(The first book in the Janac's Games, Origins series)
A Novella by


What will you do...?

The Sniper is a sensational SHORT STORY (12,000 words or about 36 pages) featuring the central character from Mark Chisnell's 'Janac's Games' thrillers; The Defector and The Wrecking Crew.

An empty clearing in the Vietnamese jungle in 1969. An explosive, complex and compromised war rages to the north and south, to the east and the west. Two men come to the clearing with a simple task in mind - to kill a man. A man who wants to visit his girl.

A simple task made dangerous and ultimately deadly by a startling intervention. Soon, US Marine Corps sniper, Paul Robert Janac has to look deep inside to survive a pulse-pounding jungle manhunt that will leave him with a life-or-death choice.
So what will he do, when...

This is the first of several stories that will follow Janac's progress from the Vietnam War to drug trade dominance, to the place where we meet him in The Defector - these stories are the origins of Janac's Games.

If you're one of the hundreds of thousands of people that have enjoyed The Defector and The Wrecking Crew, then you won't want to miss the moment when it all begins to unravel for a good and decent soldier.

And if you haven't yet read the 'Janac's Games' books, this is a great place to start...

Try the sample with 'Look Inside'.

Mark Chisnell's thrillers have topped the Amazon charts around the world.

Reviews for The Defector

'An excellent drug-smuggling thriller.'
The Bookseller

'This is a remarkable thriller - chillingly violent, full of tension and with a very original ending.'
Publishing News

Mark Chisnell writes the kind of stories that will keep you turning the pages till you're done, and still thinking about them long after that. He writes the Kindle-chart-topping Janac's Games thrillers, and the Burn with Blackett series featuring Vermont back country girl and wannabe-investigative journalist, Sam Blackett.

Mark Chisnell's a former professional sportsman and has also worked as a broadcaster and journalist. He has written for some of the world's leading magazines and newspapers, including Esquire and the Guardian - but Mark's greatest achievement was probably hitch-hiking to Mt Everest base-camp in Tibet. In trainers. Or maybe that was the stupidest.
