When a team of commandos - highly skilled and armed to the teeth - tries to kidnap retired CIA station chief Linda Genneken from her home, trained marine Nathan McBride and his partner, Harvey Fontana, arrive just in time to join the fight. But their well-honed CIA instincts tell them this is only the beginning. McBride and Fontana set out to learn who ordered the midnight raid and why.

although the series are often similar, the stories they tell and the characters highlighted all tell a different aspect of human life and decisions that impact Our Lives. Excellent read

When attractive American Jacqueline Kirby is invited to an English country mansion for a weekend costume affair, she expects only one mystery.

Jacqueline is amused by the group's eccentricities until history begins to repeat itself.

just fun story. the reader seemed rushed in beginning and did not have a 'story telling' tone. more monotone. for me the subject was not familiar. but was still able to follow the story.

As the war in Europe winds down in the wake of the Normandy invasion, the United States has turned its vast military resources toward an all-out effort against the Japanese. In the spring of 1945, Japan’s empire has been pressed slowly back toward its home islands, and the Americans mount a furious assault on the last great stepping-stone to Japan itself - the heavily fortified island of Okinawa. The three-month battle will feature some of the most vicious combat of the entire war, as American troops confront an enemy that would rather be slaughtered than experience the shame of surrender.

it reveals more than I ever knew was special about the individual Soldier. Which I presume is the point. Although it's a little graphic and slow at times it makes for an excellent read.

There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

Mysteries like this seem to always have things that you can't believe in them. But from scene to scene this one seems true to form. Only near the end are you able to finally get the outcome. it keeps you reading and reading. One of his best.

When Russian President Valeri Volodin's ambitions are foiled in Dagestan, he faces a difficult choice. The oligarchs who support him expect a constant flow of graft, but with energy prices cratering, the Russian economy sputters to a virtual halt. Unable to grow the Russian market at home, his hold on power relies on expansion abroad—a plan that has been thwarted by the United States in the past. But this time Volodin has determined that an indirect approach is the best.
