Special Ops 3 (Special Operations)

by Bob Mayer

Two great books by West Point Graduate, former Green Beret and NY Times Bestselling Author Bob Mayer.

Eternity Base from The Green Beret Series and The Kennedy Endeavor is from the Presidential Series

ETERNITY BASE:
Maverick federal employee Sammy Pintella, obsessed with uncovering the fate of her MIA father, makes a startling discovery while rifling through some inactive government files. A dozen, faded black and white photos seem to point to the existence of a secret US Military base built in the frozen wastelands of Antarctica during the height of the Cold War.

Aided by Special Forces veteran Dave Riley, she heads for Antarctica. But they aren’t alone. Spies, North Koreans and other shadowy forces are also en route, because deep inside Eternity Base is something people will go to extreme lengths to get: a cache of nuclear warheads.

“A federal employee intent upon discovering the truth about her missing in action father stumbles upon a closely-held secret about an Antarctic military base – a base illegally constructed and which has been kept a secret by a serious of murders. When she and her reporter sister fly to the base for an in-depth probe, murder begins to stalk them in this tense novel. Unlike most military stories this will appeal to general audiences as a fine thriller. Highly recommended, indeed.” — Midwest Book Review

THE KENNEDY ENDEAVOR:
Would the military ever initiate a coup? A secret, powerful group of West Point Graduates, known only as The Line, is going to do just that.

Publishers Weekly: “So convincing, that by the last page, readers may doubt the official version of the last 50 years.”

“Today, every inhabitant of this planet must contemplate the day when this planet may no longer be habitable. Every man, woman and child lives under a nuclear Sword of Damocles, hanging by the slenderest of threads, capable of being cut at any moment by accident or miscalculation or by madness. The weapons of war must be abolished before they abolish us.” John F. Kennedy

For 13 days in October 1962 the world came the closest to nuclear Armageddon. On 22 November 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated. On the 25th of November, as Kennedy’s body lay in state at the Rotunda in Washington, Anastas Mikyoan, Khrushchev’s top adviser, presented the Premier’s condolences to Jacqueline Kennedy. She took Mikoyan’s hand in both hers and told him: “I am sure that Chairman Khrushchev and my husband could have been successful in the search for peace, and they were really striving for that. Now the Chairman must continue the agreed upon endeavor and bring it to completion.”

On 12 October 1964, a Washington socialite named Mary Meyer was shot in the back of the head and through the heart at point-blank range. She had been married to a high-ranking CIA agent. More importantly, she had been carrying on an affair with President John F. Kennedy and was one of his most trusted friends, at his side through the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis.

On 13 October 1964, the day after Mary Meyer’s murder, the Soviet Politburo forced Nikita Khrushchev to resign from power and put him under house arrest.

Today, Paul Ducharme and Evie Tolliver unveil a Fail Safe type scenario brokered by President Kennedy and Premier Khrushchev and race against time before the archaic Sword of Damocles initiates World War III.

It describes in detail The Bringing Down of the Hawk, how and why. It is a tale of love and laughter, of dedication and loyalty, pain and passion that reaches from London’s East End through to the wilds of New Zealand’s North Island to domicile in Auckland City. It lingers in the outback of Australia’s Snowy Mountains, the bustle of Paddy’s Markets and the fearful iced terrain of Mount Erebus. It is a powerful family saga in which life and death fail to discriminate.



Triumphant to the Last (the Jacobite Battle for Scotland Book 2)

by John Marshall

Book 2 of the Jacobite Wars for Scotland

Scotland had won its freedom at Prestonpans but all was not well. Bonnie Prince Charlie had dreams of sitting on the throne in London, among many of his expectations that his officers sought to subdue. After all the Scot’s army was yet insignificant in comparison to the English army and the English King was already looking towards the Dutch to bolster his numbers. If the French had kept their promise and risen as expected, it may have been a different story.

While Charlie danced away the night at Holyrood Palace, his officers worried about his plans for the future. Jamie Shepherd and his cousin William Shepherd had experienced the horrors of war at Prestonpans and both now wondered what was right and what was wrong in this conflict. Neither knew where their Uncle James Legg was and whether he would return. As they stood at Duddingston Loch they were faced with a future that looked bleak and both thought of home and family.

Were they prepared for what was to happen next? The plain answer is that no one was. Their paths would not be of their choosing, but this was war and few knew or wished for what lay ahead. With the English army massing at Newcastle and rumours of further battalions arriving from Europe, what was the sensible action? Wait in Edinburgh and grow in strength or challenge the enemy on its own land. Only a maniac would do that?

Well, Bonnie Prince Charlie had his own thoughts and this would be the beginning of a long journey. Follow in the footsteps of the young boys as they travel the length of England and Scotland in their quest for a free Scotland. Who will be â??Triumphant to the Last’?

Together they dig into a mystery that goes all the way back to Smith’s childhood in the multi-racial District 6 of Cape Town, the vicious realities of small town apartheid in Krugersburg and Smith’s own complicity in the state of Apartheid.
