Decades before a second Cold War brings the world to the brink of annihilation, a brooding teenager stands in an alley, covered in blood. In his lifetime, he’ll come to be known by many names. Radical. Rebel. Revolutionary.
But all will know him as Raul Menendez.
Exclusively published on Kindle, Rightful King catapults readers through the journey that follows Menendez from the violent streets of 1980’s Nicaragua to the boroughs of New York as he forages for food and water, rises through the ranks of his father’s drug cartel, and ultimately forms the diabolical plan that will change the world forever in Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
All proceeds from Rightful King go towards the Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit, public benefit corporation that seeks to help organizations that provide job placement and training services for veterans.
