There was something off about Santa.
From the shadowed alcove where he’d taken up residence, Hollis Gifford III
split his attention between the odd-looking bell ringer and the doorway to the
office building nearby.
He was here on this chilly late December day waiting for a glimpse of his
quarry, Senator Martin Langford of Kentucky. A man about as crooked as
they came, at least from the investigation Hollis and his team had conducted,
and a person of interest in his best friend Nash Carter’s younger brother’s
Hollis honestly didn’t know anything about having a sibling, being an only
child himself. But he did consider the guys from his old special ops team, the
3Magi—Nash and Arif Ramzi—about as close to brothers as he was going to
get in this lifetime. And if Nash needed Hollis’s help, then Hollis would be
there for him.
A particularly biting wind swirled, and Hollis gathered his thick wool coat
closer around his body. Normally, he stayed indoors during the civilian
surveillance work he and the guys did on projects or persons that interested
them. He’d been the leader of the 3Magi team when they’d been in the
military and his specialty was strategizing—working out the intricate details
of the group’s plans and implementing them in the most effective, efficient
way possible. It was what had made him such a good solider, and what had
made him even richer in his life now outside the military. And yeah, Hollis
had come from a privileged, wealthy family, but he’d never rested on those
laurels, choosing instead to build a tech company on his own from the ground

In other words, he wasn’t usually out in the field getting his hands dirty. Not
that he minded hard work. It was just that analysis suited his style better than
Hollis hunkered against the brick wall beside him as another gust of arctic
wind whistled through the alcove. The snowy weather in Manhattan this year
had hit early and with brutal force, leaving a constant foot of snow on the
ground and a persistent chill in Hollis’s bones.
Hell, you sound like an old man.
At thirty-six he was hardly ancient, but there were times since he’d retired
from the military when he felt about a thousand years old. It was more mental
exhaustion, he supposed, than anything. Seeing the horrors of war firsthand
and the brutal, selfish lengths some went to gain and keep power made his
stomach turn and his soul shrivel. That was another reason why he was out
here. From what they’d uncovered, Senator Langford was on a power trip
himself, both literally and figuratively, and Hollis intended to put a stop to it.
As soon as he located Aiden Carter.
Maybe by finding Nash’s brother, hopefully alive and well, Hollis could also
pay back the huge debt he owed Nash for saving his ass more than once back
in the desert. Perhaps then Hollis could find some of his old enthusiasm for
life too. But unfortunately, today at least, all he’d found was frustration and
