Publisher's Summary

A struggling writer. A team of U.S. soldiers. A fight for their lives. A battle for his soul.

Writer Evan Davis desperately needs to find his muse to finish his book. As the impossible deadline approaches with a virtually nonexistent wordcount, his agent presents him with a unique reprieve: Gain a delay by becoming a press embed with U.S. troops going to Central Asia.

Davis sees it as an unlikely place to rediscover his muse but lacks any alternative.

After being presented with an odd luck talisman of three paperclips by a friend, he travels with his assigned unit to Afghanistan.

There he is out of his comfort zone and pushed into a world where friendships are vital, and lives are on the line. His problems pale in comparison to what these brave men must face daily.

As Davis begins to write about their daily hardships, he rediscovers his love of the written word.

He also finds a use for each of his talismans, as they save his life and those of the men he comes to regard as his team; soldiers who promised each other they would all make it home in one piece.

Follow Evan’s journey as he finds his muse in the most unlikely place under the most extraordinary circumstances.

Good book not for everyone.

A fantastic follow up ! Lots of detailed information about weapons systems and their applications, great if you like that stuff not so much if you are more interested in the story only, love the mix personally but fully understand why it may not appeal to everyone.

Too Authentic?

True Believer feels much more genuine and thoughtful without neglecting the intense action we expect in a thriller.

Great book

Worth the listen. It is a book that the subjects themselves would never explained but needs to be told. I can only hope that the “American” traitor in this book does not see a day of freedom

You will not be disappointed!

The first book got me hooked and this one kept me hooked. Sincere help having the potential to turn to harm is mind blowing. Makes you think from a different perspective. Thank you for your service!

The descriptions of battles and other important events are occasionally difficult to follow, but worth the effort. Well explained, a compelling story indeed. Long overdue.
