The Bannerman Effect
Former assassin Paul Bannerman knows that keeping a low profile is essential, but when he fell in love with the daughter of a legendary New York City cop, he broke his own unspoken rule. When Susan Lesko's life is threatened, the last of Bannerman's objectivity is shattered. Worst of all, his rage could blind Bannerman to an even graver threat that is operating in the shadows. The same covert government agency that disowned Bannerman and his people now plans to use them to test an experimental computer program designed to destroy criminal networks through strategically selected assassinations. The spooks have chosen Paul Bannerman and his operatives to be the guinea pigs in a potentially catastrophic experiment.
When he discovers that his girlfriend's life is in danger, former professional assassin Paul Bannerman is determined to protect her, but his efforts blind him to the cruelty of his former employers, who intend to test out a new killing computer on Bannerman and his buddies. Reprint.
