Karner Blue

(The first book in the Think Tank Episode 1 series)
A Novella by



Matt Decker had one rule for his multi-billion-dollar think tank: No weapons development.

After his board of directors and senior partners try to do an end run around their founder, straight to a lucrative military contract, Decker decides to take his company and leave. He brings along three of his hand-picked employees, and starts something new - a think tank that focuses on making small changes that have a big impact on the world.

And it couldn't come at a better time.

Famed blogger Anne Marie goes missing in the mountains and forests of Vermont, while on the hunt for the rare and endangered Karner Blue butterfly. Everyone has given up hope of finding her alive. Everyone except Decker and his team.

Using military-grade hardware and combined IQs that read like zip codes, Decker and Associates risk everything, including imprisonment and espionage charges, to try finding and rescuing Anne Marie before it's too late.

Succeed or fail, Decker has plans to change the world, one small act at a time. But what secret is he hiding from his team? And what price could all of them pay if they fail?

"Here's one for the genius files! Complex plot, simple genius!"
