This action-packed Mission League Series from Marcher Lord Press was designed for reluctant-reader tweens and teens, a cross between the Veritas Project and “Spy Kids.” AMBUSHED is fourth in the series. The official blurb: All Spencer wants in life is an NCAA scholarship to play D-I college basketball. He visits universities when he can and works hard at his goal of taking his team to the state basketball championship. When disaster strikes, Spencer’s desperation sends him to the one person he was determined to ignore: his father. You can purchase AMBUSHED at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo. To whet your appetite, Jill sent along this exclusive content for the hunt, a fun classified background report from the hero of her latest release in the series…

CLASSIFIED MISSION BACKGROUND REPORT

TITLE: Previously in My Life . . .

SUBMITTED BY: Agent-in-Training Spencer Garmond

In case you’re coming into this adventure in the middle, a year and a half ago I was recruited into the Agent Development Program of the Mission League, a secret branch of INTERPOL, whose primary objective is to follow the will of God in collecting, analyzing, evaluating, and disseminating intelligence against the rulers, authorities, powers of this dark world, and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: churchers. And I thought the same at first. But then I found out that my real name is Jonas Wright and I’m in a witness protection program of sorts, hiding out from my criminal dad, who was responsible for my mom’s death.

Real nice, huh?

So I went on a training mission to Moscow. And I met this woman, Anya Vseveloda, who was working with the Russian mob to get people hooked on drugs and into a cult called Bratva. I’d been having dreams about Anya for years, and I found out I was gifted in prophecy.

When I got back to California, Priere showed up—he’s the official intercessor for our group of agents-in-training. He told me that I matched the profile for a sixty-year-old prophecy and that some bad guys were after me because of what I did in Moscow. Agents started following me everywhere to keep me safe. The baddies guy-napped me after Homecoming last year, but the agents nabbed them right back.

Things quieted down for a while. Then last summer, I went to Okinawa, Japan, on another training trip. I got my first red card—a real assignment—to follow this girl. I botched it, of course. And she led me to Anya (bad chick from Moscow), who accused me of being the Profile Match and wanted to know who the First Twin was. Like I had a clue. I managed to get away, but in doing so, Anya cut me across my chest and I had to get stitches.

It’s actually a pretty sweet scar.

Now I’m home again and totally focused on basketball. Coach did some research on the NCAA recruitment process, and, let’s just say, I’ve got a lot of work to do. But I’m starting to become a bit of a celebrity in Pilot Point.

Oh, and there’s another Light Goddess movie coming out soon, so I’m curious if this one has the same creepy similarities to the Bratva cult as the other one did.

So that’s what’s been going on. I’m sure you’re ecstatic to have learned all this. If you really want to know how everything works out, it’s all in the full report titled Ambushed.

Because, really. There is no better word than “ambushed” to explain what happened to me over the last few months.
