The 231 Club


After a successful behavioral expert is recruited to become a courier for the CIA, his ordered world descends down a dark path leading to sanctioned kills and questioned loyalties, forever altering his concept of self and country. This is the basis of The 231 Club, a non-fiction account of J Bartell’s life from childhood to a man with 23 confirmed kills. In the course of his roughly ten years of work in black ops, J experienced many life threatening events and he was often called upon to use his therapeutic skills to aid both himself, his partners and other assets in the field.  Read more about The Book.

J has been interviewed by award winning investigative reporter Judd McIlvain, a winner of eight golden mic awards and multiple Emmy Awards and award winning investigative journalist/crime reporter Peter R. de Vries of The Netherlands.
