When the hunter becomes the hunted, where is there to hide?

In Rafael A. Marti’s first full-length novel, Phoenix Reborn, readers follow main character Nathan Christopher Styles as he sets out on a dangerous journey that may cost him his life. A former U.S. Army Special Forces operative, Styles has now become a target. As he bravely confronts his alleged adversaries, he must also battle personal demons: paranoid schizophrenia. Could the entity he once fought for – the U. S. government – have turned on him?

With the help of his love interest and only ally, Vanessa Del Rio, Styles realizes he has little hope of reclaiming a normal life. His only focus now is to fight to stay alive.

Phoenix Reborn is the story of a man who once had it all but soon finds his life and world shattered. This fast-paced espionage thriller will leave readers questioning who, if not our own government, can really be trusted.

Reader Richard R. Blake writes, "Rafael Marti has a creative imagination and is a gifted storyteller. Six years of service in the U. S. Army and a career in medical and security assistance give Marti important insight into the theme of Phoenix Reborn. Rafael's personal background as a medicated paranoid-schizophrenic with an anxiety disorder adds an amazing depth of understanding and credibility to his writing. Phoenix Reborn is unforgettable, leaving the reader with a lasting feeling of hope and promise.”
