Order to Kill by Kyle Mills

Happy Book Pub Day to Kyle Mills’ Order to Kill!!!

(Pic from Amazon.com)

Order to Kill is the next installment of Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series.

The blurb:

In the next thrilling novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Mitch Rapp series, the anti-terrorism operative heads to Pakistan to confront a mortal threat he may not be prepared for. In fact, this time he might have met his match.

Mitch Rapp is used to winning.

But in this follow-up to #1 New York Times bestselling The Survivor, the CIA operative finds himself chasing false leads from continent to continent in an effort to keep Pakistani nukes from falling into the hands of terrorists. Together with friend and colleague Scott Coleman, Rapp struggles to prevent the loss of these lethal weapons, particularly because Russia is also interested in the nukes, though not for the same reason as Rapp and Coleman.

Soon, it becomes alarmingly clear that the forces in Moscow are bent on fomenting even more chaos and turmoil in the Middle East, and Rapp must go deep into Russian territory, posing as an American ISIS recruit. There, he uncovers a plan much more dangerous and insidious than he ever expected, one that could have far-reaching and catastrophic consequences.

Written with breathless tension and heart-pounding action, Mitch Rapp’s latest adventure is as timely and provocative as ever.

Kyle Mills has done it again, and continues Vince’s legacy with another astounding Mitch Rapp novel. We (the fans) have truly been blessed with Mills, as he was the author that was selected to continue the series. He nailed Vince’s voice in The Survivor, and with Order to Kill, he has taken the series into his own hands and has made it his own, all the while staying true to Vince’s legacy.

MITCH RAPP IS BACK!

 

Salem’s Cipher by Jess Lourey

Happy Book Pub Day to Jess Lourey’s “Salem’s Cipher”!!!!

(pic from amazon.com)

To start, I just want to say, that Jess is one of my favorite authors (in my top three, top two actually, ok ok, she’s my second favorite author) and I’ve been waiting for her new book for months!

The blurb:

Salem Wiley is a genius cryptanalyst, courted by the world’s top security agencies ever since making a breakthrough discovery in her field of quantum computing. She’s also an agoraphobe, shackled to a narrow routine by her fear of public places. When her mother’s disappearance is linked to a plot to assassinate the country’s first viable female presidential candidate, Salem finds herself both target and detective in a modern-day witch hunt. Drawn into a labyrinth of messages encrypted by Emily Dickinson and centuries-old codes tucked inside the Beale Cipher, Salem begins to uncover the truth: an ancient and ruthless group is hell-bent on ruling the world, and only a select group of women stands in its way.

Sounds good, doesn’t it????

The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone

Happy Pub Day to Ezekiel Boone’s “The Hatching”

The Hatching USA cover

(pic taken from ezekielboone.com)

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC and get the chance to read this book back in February. The first thing I need to mention, is I hate spiders. HATE them! Doesn’t matter how small or large they are, I am an equal opportunity spider hater.

I thought this book would scare the crap out me. But, I made my through it, with lots of cringing though. And a few panic attacks here and there. It’s like Arachnophobia on steroids.

Even if you hate and are afraid of spiders, I would still highly recommend checking out “The Hatching” because it is an excellent read.

The blurb:

An astonishingly inventive and terrifying debut novel about the emergence of an ancient species, dormant for over a thousand years, and now on the march.

Deep in the jungle of Peru, where so much remains unknown, a black, skittering mass devours an American tourist whole. Thousands of miles away, an FBI agent investigates a fatal plane crash in Minneapolis and makes a gruesome discovery. Unusual seismic patterns register in a Kanpur, India earthquake lab, confounding the scientists there. During the same week, the Chinese government “accidentally” drops a nuclear bomb in an isolated region of its own country. As these incidents begin to sweep the globe, a mysterious package from South America arrives at a Washington, D.C. laboratory. Something wants out.

The world is on the brink of an apocalyptic disaster. An ancient species, long dormant, is now very much awake.

Warning Order by Joshua Hood

Happy Pub Day to Joshua Hood’s “Warning Order”

(pic taken from joshuahoodbooks.com)

Along with Brad Taylor’s duo of Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill, Josh’s Mason Kane and Renee Hart are another duo that I have fallen in love. In this case, I think I’m more in love with Renee than Mason!! This is the second book in the Search And Destroy series, and I cannot wait to see where Josh brings these characters and this series.

The blurb:

In the second book of the explosive Search and Destroy thriller series, Mason Kane—a special ops hero with a questionable past, joins forces with the CIA to neutralize a radical off shoot of ISIS and unravel a conspiracy emanating from the White House’s inner sanctum.

After almost losing his life, foiling a terror plot that threated to draw the United States into another war—Mason Kane, disgraced American soldier, and special operations legend is still on the governments blacklist. To finally clear his name, Mason strikes a deal with the CIA—throwing himself back into the deadly world of black ops.

But when an asset tied to ISIS leads an old friend into a trap, Mason goes off the grid, and finds himself trapped in the middle of a plot involving an extremely violent and highly capable terror cell—with ties to the President’s inner circle. With the help of Renee Hart, a DOD operative, and a team of elite special ops soldiers, Mason is determined to stop an attack aimed at crippling the US military before time runs out.

Ghosts of War by Brad Taylor

Happy Pub Day to Brad Taylor’s “Ghosts of War”!!!!

(pic from bradtaylorbooks.com)

Pike Logan is definitely among the top of my favorite characters, as well as Jennifer Cahill. And one of my top duos. I love their relationship. I love how Brad has written such a strong female character who is becoming such a badass!!

The blurb:

The Taskforce has stopped countless terrorist threats across the globe, operating outside of US law to prevent the death of innocents. But now, along the fault lines of the old Iron Curtain, the danger is far greater than a single attack. With Russia expanding its influence from Syria to the Baltic States, the Taskforce is placed on stand-down because of the actions of one rogue operator.
 
Meanwhile, Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill travel to Poland, hired to verify artifacts hidden for decades in a fabled Nazi gold train, only to find themselves caught amid growing tensions between East and West. A Russian incursion into Belarus under the facade of self-defense is trumped by a horrific attack against the United States, driving NATO to mobilize even as it tries to determine who is behind the strike. 
 
On the brink of war, Pike and Jennifer discover that there is a separate agenda in play, one determined to force a showdown between NATO and Russia.  With time running out, and America demanding vengeance, Pike and Jennifer race to unravel the mystery before a point of no return is reached. Unbeknownst to them, there is another attack on the way.  
 
One that will guarantee World War III.

First Strike by Ben Coes

Happy Pub Day to Ben Coes’ “First Strike”!!!!

(pic from amazon.com)

The blurb:

Deep within the Pentagon, a covert, multi-billion arms-for-influence program was created. The objective was to protect the United States and its allies from terrorist acts by secretly enabling a hand-picked man to emerge as the most powerful leader in the Middle East. But the charismatic Tristan Nazir double-crosses America, twisting the program for his own violent ends to create ISIS. Now America is at great risk. 

Elite operative Dewey Andreas is sent to Syria to retrieve details about the source of ISIS’s funding but his cover is blown mid-operation and chaos erupts in the streets of Damascus. Trapped and outnumbered, Dewey manages to send proof of the awful truth―unknown at even the highest levels in the government―that ISIS’s munitions were indeed provided by America itself. 

This information arrives in time to for the U.S. to cut off a final arms shipment before it reaches ISIS. But the vicious Nazir, is far from finished. He launches a bold strike into the heart of America, sending a terrorist cell to take over a dorm at Columbia University, capturing hundreds of college students as hostages. For every hour that the shipment of weapons is withheld, the terrorists will publicly execute one student. The potential loss of life is intolerable. A frontal assault is impossible. Releasing the shipment is unthinkable. There is nowhere to turn… 

In a situation with no solutions, there remains only one option―Dewey Andreas.

Pandora’s Grave | Thursday Reads

“Pandora’s Grave” by Stephen England

(pic from stephenwrites.com)

The blurb:

An American president who will do anything to win reelection. . .An Iranian leader who will stop at nothing to bring about apocalypse. . .An ancient evil, only waiting to be reborn. . .

High in the Alborz Mountains of northwestern Iran, an archaeological team disappears. American citizens are among the missing. . .

Days later, imagery from U.S. spy satellites reveals detachments of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps descending upon the site. . .

With the presidential election only months away, President Roger Hancock authorizes a covert CIA mission into the mountains of Iran. Their objective: rescue the archaeologists and uncover the truth.

With fifteen years in the Clandestine Service, paramilitary operations officer Harry Nichols is unquestionably the man for the job. He’s a tough, ruthless veteran operator. He’s led his men into harm’s way time and again. For him, it’s all about the mission. It’s all about the team.

He’s never seen anything like this before. . .

Drawn into a web of conspiracy that reaches half-way around the world and into the highest levels of the U.S. government, he soon finds that nothing is as it seems.

The mission itself is suspect. His team can no longer be trusted.  And a misstep means world war. . .

I met Stephen many years back when I started running the VFF twitter. “Pandora’s Grave” is the first of the Shadow Warriors series and where we meet Harry Nichols. It’s a thrilling ride and I highly recommend it.

And lucky for you, there are 2 more novels in the Shadow Warriors series, “Day of Reckoning” and the newly released “Embrace the Fire”!!!

Foreign Agent by Brad Thor

Happy Pub Day to Brad Thor’s “Foreign Agent”!!!!

Foreign Agent

(pic from bradthor.com)

The blurb:

Scot Harvath has exactly the skills the CIA is looking for. He’s a former U.S. Navy SEAL with extensive experience in espionage. Working for a private intelligence company, he will provide the CIA, and more important, the President, with absolute deniability.

But deep within the Russian Caucasus, Moscow also has its own special kind of operative. As a child, Sacha Baseyev endured an unimaginable horror. Today, he lives and breathes for only one reason—to kill. And he will kill as many Americans as it takes to accomplish his mission.

When a clandestine American operations team is ambushed near Syria, all signs point toward a dangerous informant in Brussels. But as Harvath searches for the man, he uncovers another actor—a rogue player hell-bent on forcing America’s hand and drawing it into a confrontation deadlier than anyone could have imagined.

As the attacks mount, and terror is brought to the very doorstep of the White House, Harvath finds himself in the race of his life. From Vienna, Brussels, and Berlin, to Malta, Jordan, and Syria—he will push himself beyond the edge in order to confront one of the greatest evils the world has ever known.

House of Secrets by Brad Meltzer and Tod Goldberg

Happy Pub Day to Brad Meltzer & Tod Goldberg’s “House of Secrets”!!!!!

(Pic from Amazon.com)

The blurb:

When Hazel Nash was six years old, her father taught her: mysteries need to be solved. He should know. Hazel’s father is Jack Nash, the host of America’s favorite conspiracy TV show, The House of Secrets. 
Even as a child, she loved hearing her dad’s tall tales, especially the one about a leather book belonging to Benedict Arnold that was hidden in a corpse. 
 
Now, years later, Hazel wakes up in the hospital and remembers nothing, not even her own name. She’s told she’s been in a car accident that killed her father and injured her brother. But she can’t remember any of it, because of her own traumatic brain injury. Then a man from the FBI shows up, asking questions about her dad-and about his connection to the corpse of a man found with an object stuffed into his chest: a priceless book that belonged to Benedict Arnold.
 
Back at her house, Hazel finds guns that she doesn’t remember owning. On her forehead, she sees scars from fights she can’t recall. Most important, the more Hazel digs, the less she likes the person she seems to have been.
Trying to put together the puzzle pieces of her past and present, Hazel Nash needs to figure out who killed this man-and how the book wound up in his chest. The answer will tell her the truth about her father, what he was really doing for the government-and who Hazel really is. Mysteries need to be solved. Especially the ones about yourself.

One Rough Man | Thursday Reads

“One Rough Man” by Brad Taylor

One Rough Man

My friend Ryan over at The Real Book Spy asked me to do a Throwback Thursday Review for his website, in which I gladly accepted. My choice was Brad Taylor’s “One Rough Man” and it actually took me quite some time to do since I wanted to do it in the format than Ryan uses and not just copy and paste the book’s blurb. Like I’ve said before, I’m not big on writing reviews because the words that I want to express don’t come to me. I gave it a whirl. And it came out pretty good. I sure hope it did the book justice because it is a fantastic thriller!

If you’d like to, you can check out my Throwback Thursday Review here

“One Rough Man” is the first in the Pike Logan series. And of course it is one of my favorites (the first ones always tend to be). I love Pike Logan, but I just might love Jennifer Cahill more. Even though she isn’t in Pike’s league, she proves that she can hold her own. Another reason for the love of this book, there’s a little archaeology happening (hello Indiana Jones – well, not really, but it’s fun). If you are a Flynn/Thor fan, and haven’t read Taylor yet, you need to!! And he’s not only a great author, he’s a really great person 🙂

The blurb:

They call it the Taskforce. Their existence is as essential as it is illegal. Commissioned at the highest level of the U.S. government. Protected from the prying eyes of Congress and the media. Built around the top operators from across the clandestine, intelligence, and special forces landscape. Designed to operate outside the bounds of U.S. law. Trained to exist on the ragged edge of human capability.

Pike Logan was the most successful operator on the Taskforce, his instincts and talents unrivaled-until personal tragedy permanently altered his outlook on the world. Pike knows what the rest of the country might not want to admit: The real threat isn’t from any nation, any government, any terrorist group. The real threat is one or two men, controlled by ideology, operating independently, in possession of a powerful weapon.

Buried in a stack of intercepted chatter is evidence of two such men. The transcripts are scheduled for analysis in three months. The attack is mere days away. It is their bad luck that they’re about to cross paths with Pike Logan. And Pike Logan has nothing left to lose.
