The year is now. Islamist terrorists hack into America's defense networks, launch chemical weapons attacks on Western cities, and stage a raid on nuclear storage facilities in Pakistan. They are using a massively multiplayer online video game as a platform for planning and rehearsing their attacks - forcing a squad of supremely elite Delta Force operators to go inside the game to fight them. These weapons, tactics, tech, and 21st-century warriors will be unlike anything you've ever heard of before.
"Creative well-written plot!"
Alpha team leader Sergeant Major Eric Rheinhardt is retiring from the Unit - hanging up his guns and jockeying a desk at the Pentagon. But just when he thought he was out, a ghost has emerged from his past (along with a lost love), dredging up a secret shame and past-due debt. Much worse, his old mentor and now nemesis Rod "the God" Tucker has turned up on the payroll of the messianic Iranian mullahs - training their proxy fighters in Hamas and Hezbollah.

"Not a sad story!!"
Calling Crow is haunted by his recurring dream of the Destroyer who will one day lay waste to his village. Then Spanish colonial slavers from the island of Hispaniola arrive on the shores of the Southeast, lands that have been home to the Muskogee people for generations. Calling Crow and another brave are taken and bound into slavery. Life in the gold pits and slave camps is humiliating and brutal, but Calling Crow refuses to let them break his spirit.
Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, is where people go to hide. Neo-Nazis. Corrupt politicians. Mining men with buried secrets. In 1972, 91 men were killed in a mining "accident" sparked by a fire lit nearly a mile underground: the mystery was never solved. After the rest escaped, only three miners survived underground. More than 20 years later, Matt Worthson is a sheriff's lieutenant and the disgraced son of mining hero and Sunshine Mine survivor Stanley Worthson.
Calling Crow travels down the Southeast coast in search of his wife, Juana, taken by the Spanish. He is captured and badly wounded by the Coosa people. Unable to care for himself, he is saved from a slow, painful death and nursed back to health by Green Bird Woman, who he grows to love. Adopted by the Coosa, Calling Crow becomes their chief. One day word arrives that French Protestant colonists have settled to the north. Then, Spanish Catholic colonists settle near Calling Crow's village and he discovers that Juana is among them.
"Flight of Crow"
Frank Boston, retired Air Force Pararescueman, experienced two separate incidents involving three back-to-back deaths early in his Air Force career. He concluded after the second incident that he has a strange power he calls nose-smell, a sort of mystic instinct of seeing who will die in a group of related deaths. He goes years without using his ability until a small girl drowns in a pond on the nearby Air Force base. He knows two more water-related deaths will soon follow.
