    The president signed the executive order forming Dominance Rain, an ultra elite group of twelve operatives who made the SEALS, Special Forces and other upper echelon units look lie wimps. Very few people know that this cell exists as a cross between the military and the CIA handling special assignments. However, the cadre's top gun, Jonny Maxwell is convicted of rape and sent to Leavenworth based on the testimony of his best friend and fellow dog Dale Miller.

Jonny easily escapes incarceration killing at least one guard in the process. Dominance Rain chief Ray Dalton sends his best man Dale Miller to bring in the convict before things really turn ugly, but he is too late as the body count mounts along the Mississippi River. Dale joins forces with Minneapolis police detective Nina Capushek in an effort to stop the bloody trail of a person who he still considers a brother.

    NO OTHER OPTION is an exciting thriller that works on two levels. First off, the story line flows with bodies from the start, as Jonny has no remorse while killing. On the other hand, the plot asks a much deeper question as to why a highly respected individual goes bad, but Marcus Wynne cleverly avoids pat pseudo-psychological responses. Instead the audience has a winner that takes a suspense action packed chiller with provocative concepts to a level rarely seen by a veteran writer let alone a debut author Like Mr. Wynne.
