Book cover


Blake Hudson is a justice department attorney who occupies one of the most converted positions in Washington, D.C. But after a series of attacks on American soil and a bad court ruling that could debilitate the government’s ability to protect the nation, Hudson is assigned new responsibilities in the main Justice building.

A small, clandestine group meets on this dimply lit, concealed level unknown to most Justice Department employees. Led by an introverted CIA analyst, Hudson finds himself inserted into a group of superstar intelligence and military operatives whose ostensible mission— Operation Scavenger Hunt— is to fight terror with the freedom to bypass bureaucratic hurdles. Hudson becomes skeptical of the operation as members begin to break laws until, with no forewarning or explanation, the group disbands, and he finds himself the scapegoat.

Transformed from hunter to hunted, Hudson tried to piece the puzzle together as those associated with the disbanded operation begin suffering strange deaths. Not knowing whom to trust, Hudson searches for answers… fighting to stay alive.


Scavenger Hunt brought me back to my days as an idealistic young prosecutor and that sense of the urgency and importance of doing right. This novel reminds us that there are those who make the decision to fight and do so honorably as the guardians of true justice.

Boudreaux's Scavenger Hunt is a page-turning, bone-chilling thriller that challenges the limits of national security, effectively captures the aura of the Justice Department and takes the readers on a wild ride.

Boudreaux's storytelling and character development are superb, but it's his first-hand knowledge of the Justice Department's inner workings that really sets this book apart. Strap in for a heck of a fun ride!
