    At a Mexican roadblock, a U.S. Embassy SUV is stopped at gunpoint, three of its passengers murdered, and a fourth kidnapped. Everything points to the drug cartels, especially when the kidnappers say they will return the hostage if a cartel kingpin is released from U.S. federal prison.But when word gets to Charley Castillo and his group of “retired” spies and special operators, they have their doubts.

    Would you try another book from W. E. B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth and/or Dick Hill?

    Now that I finished the entire series, I am thinking that this series should have have ended successfully at three or so.

    The first disturbing reports reached Delta Force Lieutenant Colonel Charley Castillo in the form of backchannel messages concerning covert U.S. intelligence assets working for a variety of agencies suddenly gone missing and then, suddenly, inexplicably, found dying. Or dead. One in Budapest, Hungary. One in Kiev, Ukraine. One in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, mere klicks from the Iran border.

    Charlie Castillo's secret unit has been disbanded - but that doesn't mean he's out of business. As experience has painfully shown him, there are many things the intelligence community can't do, won't do, or doesn't do well, and he has the men and assets to help set things straight.

    As long as its a different storyline.

    Five hundred quiet years had passed, and then for only the second time within the collected memory of man, the earth shook. Footsteps froze and eyes went wide while birds exploded from treetops and filled the sky in frenzied flight.

    A dark power is at work, intent on gaining complete control of the CradleLand, the birthplace of the still-young world. All that stands in the Power's way is one troublesome line of humans: descendants of Seth. They are of the only remaining clan clinging to an all-but-dead faith. And yet it's from that faith that a prophecy threatens all plans of world dominion.

    Joshua says: "Great story, buy the book instead."

    Matthew Clear has just awoken to the news that millions of people are missing. While the government blames the disappearances on UFO activity, Matthew begins his own search for the truth, embarking on a mission that will test both his faith and his courage. He and a group of new believers begin The Underground, a movement that depends on prayer as their greatest weapon against the enemy.

    The narator is pretty bad; however, the story lines were not much better. Had it been free, I would have enjoyed it more. Good evangelical preaching though.

    Archeologist and historian Dr. Ian James receives a fervent call from an old friend. His presence is requested immediately in Egypt to help verify evidence of an ancient, even sacred, artifact. A far cry from his typical work as a professor, he suddenly finds himself plunged into a battle of worldviews, at war to define how we view history. What if archeologists found something that could change the world forever?

    Nayir al-Sharqi, known by his friends for religious piety and his Bedouin-like knowledge of the desert, lends his assistance to a wealthy family when their soon to-be-married daughter Nouf goes missing. After a short search, the girl is found dead, apparently drowned in the desert during a freak deluge. Something about her death doesn't sit well with Nayir, however, and he makes an uncomfortable alliance with a female coroner's technician to determine what really happened.

    A User says: "transported"
    "Good mystery with Saudi accuracy"
    Overall

    The butler didn't do it, and I had a hard time figuring it out until near the end. I lived in Saudi Arabia for a year, and the culteral backdrop is accurate in my opinion.
