About Joss:

Joss Washburn is a cynical man with a difficult past. His parents and older sister disappeared mysteriously when he was a child, leaving him as another kid in the system. When he was old enough to join the military, he enlisted and the military life suited him well until a tragedy occurred that was too great to bear. Upon returning home, he founded Washburn and Associates, a private investigation firm that specializes in missing persons cases. With his high success rate and associate Summer Skye managing the business, Washburn and Associates earns a reputation as the place to go when no one else can help.

But all of Joss' previous experience cannot prepare him for the turn his life takes when Thales shows up at his door with Heather in tow. Here Joss learns that he is Thales' designated successor, the new Hand of Prometheus. As a long dormant cold war begins to erupt around him, Joss must learn to set aside his doubt before humanity pays the price.
