Seven Years Dead – A World War 2 Espionage Thriller

by Chuck Driskell

Tommy Whiteside was killed seven years ago. Allegedly.

In the waning days of the Second World War, Tommy’s American unit was slaughtered by the notorious Schutzstaffelâ??the Waffen SS. According to the U.S. government, there were no survivors.

But Tommy did surviveâ??the sole survivor of 187 men. In the interest of his privacy, the government provided him with a new identity in a different region of the country. But, unknown to the U.S. government, Tommy spent his college years planning his revenge. And now, in 1952, Tommy is traveling back to Germany. He’s going there to find the man, the murderer, the SS commander who ordered his friends killed.

Despite his deep-seeded hatred, Tommy is forced to assimilate with his German hosts. Though unwilling at first, he even finds himself yielding to the kindness of a German widow and her son. Although his hunt progresses successfully, he soon falls under the scrutiny of a dogged Berlin detective as well as a deadly legion of former SS.

Inspired by the true events of the Malmedy Massacre, SEVEN YEARS DEAD begins as a tale of revenge and transforms to one of redemption. With dual plot lines of journal entries recounting the massacre, paralleled with Tommy’s hunt for the SS, SEVEN YEARS DEAD is an action/crime thriller that esteemed World War II author Kelly Durham describes as “thrilling and riveting.”

Will Maric be able to signal the main force for a HA/LO drop over the Kalimantan jungle in time? Can he shape the intel officers forced on him by the mission’s financial backers into part of his team? How will he get his teammates back when some of them are captured? Will he be able to best the Finn?

Special Ops 2 (Special Operations)

by Bob Mayer

2 Great Books for the price of one by West Point Graduate, former Green Beret and NY Times Bestselling Author Bob Mayer

Chasing the Lost from the Green Beret Series and The Jefferson Allegiance from the Presidential Series.

CHASING THE LOST
“A pulsing technothriller. A nailbiter in the best tradition of adventure fiction.” Publishers Weekly ref Bob Mayer

Horace Chase arrives on Hilton Head Island to pay his last respects at the Intracoastal Waterway where his late mother’s ashes were spread and to inspect the home his mother left him in her will. He’s been recently forced into retirement, his divorce is officially final, and now he’s standing in the middle of the front yard of his â??new’ house where a tree has crashed right through the center of it.

What could possibly go wrong?

Within six hours of arriving on Hilton Head, Chase is exchanging gunfire with men who’ve kidnapped a young boy and tried to grab the boy’s mother, Sarah Briggs. Soon he’s waist deep in an extortion plot to funnel a hundred million dollars of Superbowl on-line gambling money into an offshore bank account or else the boy dies.

Dave Riley has long retired from the military and living peacefully on sleepy Dafuskie Island off the coast of South Carolina. Sort of. Actually he’s bored, feeling old, and just a bit cranky running his deceased uncle’s small-time bookie operation.

Horace Chase, meet Dave Riley. Riley-Chase.

Chase and Riley assemble a team of misfits and eccentrics as they take on the powerful Russian mob in the lawless tidal lands of the Low Country to get the boy back.

It adds up to a fiery confrontation to rescue the young boy, and settle some old scores.

But Riley and Chase need to remember a basic tenet from their days in covert operations: Nothing is ever as it appears.

THE JEFFERSON ALLEGIANCE
The 4th of July 1826. As Thomas Jefferson lies dying, he gives his part of his Jefferson Cipher to Edgar Allen Poe, with instructions to take the disks to West Point. In Massachusetts, John Adams entrusts his part of the Cipher to Colonel Thayer, the superintendent of the Military Academy. As Thayer rides away, Adams utters his final words: “Thomas Jefferson survives.”

In the present, Green Beret Paul Ducharme has been recalled from Afghanistan after the â??accidental’ death of his best friend, the son of one of the Philosophers. While Ducharme is visiting his friend’s gravesite in Arlington, an old man is executed by a member from the Society of Cincinnati know as the Surgeon, who is seeking to gather all the pieces of the cipher. In a nearby restaurant, former CIA and now Curator at Monticello, Evie Tolliver, waits anxiously for her mentor to arrive, but he’s killed by the same assassin at the Zero Milestone. His heart and the Philosopher’s head are displayed as a grisly message on top of the stone, echoing Jefferson’s famous head-heart letter.

Ducharme and Tolliver, the unknowing heirs to become the next generation of caretakers of the Jefferson Allegiance, team up and must battle the Surgeon to assemble the Cipher and find the Jefferson Allegiance, a document that has kept the balance of power in the United States for over two centuries.

THE FACTS:
The Society of the Cincinnati was founded in May of 1783. A leading member was Alexander Hamilton, and the first President of the Society was George Washington. Thomas Jefferson was not allowed membership. The Society of the Cincinnati is the oldest, continuous military society in North America. It has its current headquarters at the Anderson House in downtown Washington, DC.

In 1802, President Thomas Jefferson, well known for his strong opposition to a standing army, established the United State Military Academy, the oldest Military Academy in North America. In 1819, Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia, the first college in the United States to separate religion from education. It has its current headquarters in Philosophical Hall on Liberty
