THE LONE PATRIOT: A Third World War Is Coming – Can Mark Cole Stop It?

by J.T. Brannan

After the most devastating terrorist attack in history, governments worldwide are struggling to recover.

But Clark Mason, the new US President, has got Iran firmly in his sights as the primary target for the world’s revenge.

And yet, as Mason leads a global coalition against the Islamic Republic, Mark Cole – legendary leader of the covert shadow-unit, Force One – suspects that there is more to the situation than meets the eye. And with one of his top agents missing in Moscow, and Russian operatives inciting civil unrest in the Ukraine, Poland and Greece, what are the long-term plans of Mikhail Emelienenko, hard-line President of the Russian Federation?

As violence erupts in the Middle East, Cole’s mission takes him from Washington to Moscow, and from Athens to Warsaw as he races against time to find his missing agent, confront a deadly female assassin, and put together the pieces of a deadly puzzle that might hold the key to global stability, or else lead the world into total, all-out war.

by David Hodges

There’s no escape…

Maggie Connolly is a fun-loving teenager, who is living with her widowed father, â??Big’ John Connolly, in West Belfast. Happily going out with schoolboy sweetheart, Bobby Steel, she has not a care in the worldâ?¦

But dark clouds are already gathering on the horizon. It is 1970 and the so-called Troubles are just starting. Furthermore, not only is her beloved da an RUC police sergeant, but Bobby happens to be a Protestant and, as Maggie herself is Catholic, their relationship is taboo in the eyes of both sides of the bitterly prejudiced sectarian divide.

When â??Big John’ is gunned down in front of Maggie by Provisional IRA assassin, Seamus McCain, she suffers a mental breakdown and finds herself committed to a psychiatric unit, unaware that Bobby is in no position to help her as he has been beaten into a coma by Protestant thugs for dating a Catholic girl.

And her problems are only just beginning: when McCain is acquitted of Big John’s murder and released on to the street, Maggie becomes an easy target for MI5, who capitalise on her vulnerability and desire for revenge to seduce her into working for them as a freelance assassin.

Torn by doubts and guilt, Maggie embarks on a bloody self-destructive vendetta against McCain and his IRA cell. But it soon dawns on her that her cynical MI5 â??paymasters’ are only using her for their own ends. Too late, she finds herself trapped in a quagmire of deceit and treachery which promises to destroy not just her, but Bobby as wellâ?¦
