Tracie Tanner Thrillers, Volume 1-3

10102


Tracie Tanner works alone. She operates in the shadows and on the edge, bending some rules and ignoring others to protect the country she has sworn to defend from its most dangerous enemies.

As quick-witted and resourceful as she is beautiful and dedicated to her mission, Tracie Tanner will soon become your newest must-read. Check out this highly regarded three-book collection and see if you don't agree.

PARALLAX VIEW
The assignment is simple: deliver a top-secret communiqué from Moscow to the White House. But a shadowy and powerful group will stop at nothing to prevent that delivery, and soon Tracie Tanner running for her life, determined to complete her mission while protecting an innocent civilian caught in the crossfire…

ALL ENEMIES
When U.S. Secretary of State J. Robert Humphries is kidnapped out of his own home, Tracie Tanner is tasked with tracking down the Soviet operatives holding him and recovering him safely.

There’s only one problem: Tracie isn’t convinced the KGB is the guilty party. Soon she’s risking her life and her career on a hunch that just might get her and Humphries killed and result in the start of World War Three…

THE OMEGA CONNECTION
When top executives at a defense department contracting agency are brutally murdered, Tracie Tanner is tasked with stopping the killers at any cost. With non-stop action in DC, Miami and Havana, and an unforgettable showdown deep in the Florida Everglades, you will find yourself turning the pages deep into the night...

This series will be a particular favorite with fans of TV spy shows from Alias and Nikita to the classic 60s show, The Avengers, and the very contemporary Quantico, Homeland, and the Bourne series. If you can remember Diana Rigg as Emma Peel, or thrilled to Jennifer Garner as Sydney Bristow, you'll love Tracie. If you're a fan of Mitch Rapp, brought to life by the late Vince Flynn, or of the Brad Thor patriot Scot Harvath, she'll be your new hero. We're pretty sure Ian Fleming and Robert Ludlum would have been fans, too.

Tales of the 319th: The WWII Accounts of Courageous Aviators in a Fearful Time

10109


‘Men of Courage’ are not built on brash talk. They are built by shared confrontation of fear and challenge. These are the men of the 319th Bomb Group, soldiers who fought in Africa, Europe and the Pacific against all three Axis powers.

Their chronicler, Joseph W. “Joe” Connaughton, was a young man who dreamed of flying as the dark clouds of war touched the shores of America. Those dreams brought him from college life in Tuscaloosa, Alabama to the Army Air Corps in Roswell and the aircrew culture he grew to love. He graduated an officer from the Army’s bombardier training and was ordered to Sardinia where he arrived in May of 1944 for posting with the 319th which had already earned a reputation for daring raids and accurate bombing.

Along with his fellow aviators, the author’s journey to and with the 319th Bomb Group was a mutual journey of indelible experiences that enriched not only their bond, but also the future with their families and professions.

Tales of the 319th is a series of chronological stories based on interviews of the men who survived as well as those of the author. The “Tales” reveal their beginning as well as the sacrifices and trials that hardened these men of the air and brought about their ultimate success. Experience their journey through the vivid description of battle and the revelry and strength of camaraderie. What emerges is a ringing endorsement of the intelligence, perseverance, and, yes, courage of these men of what many view as the “finest generation.”

Joey Mancuso Mysteries: Volumes 4 - 6

10136


BOOK 4 -THEIR DAUGHTER GOES MISSING AND THEY DON'T CALL THE COPS? THAT’S ONE OF MANY…
…intriguing mysteries deliciously and intricately layered in these pages. Layer upon layer, twist upon twist, secret upon secret, this is a case tailor-made for a Sherlock Holmes devotee</b> like private investigator Joey Mancuso. From the beginning, there’s just something funny about parents who didn’t report a missing student right away, and days later still want no police.

Hold it here! This is their beloved daughter, last seen leaving for a date. Why wouldn’t they want as much firepower as they can get? Because they know too much, that’s why—and Owen Parr’s clever detective senses that. Joey’s first job’s to save the girl, but no way he’s going to stop there. The scrappy PI and ex-cop’s going to get answers if it kills him.

A lot of the fun is in the clever Russian doll structure of a puzzle wrapped in a mystery, each discovery leading to a bigger and more surprising twist, but it wouldn't be half as delightful without the loveable series ensemble author Parr has assembled. The usual suspects are here—Marcy, Joey’s new wife and favorite FBI agent; researcher Agnes, who goes to Father Dom’s Mass every morning, presumably to repent for her shameless hacking; and Mr. Pat, gentle giant bartender-turned-detective. There’s also a welcome new addition—a professor who’s as close as you’re ever going to get to Indiana Jones.

BOOK 5 -AT 16, HE SAW HIS DAD GUNNED DOWN. NOW HE HAS A CHANCE TO FIND THE KILLER,,,
PI Joey Mancuso was just a kid when he watched a stranger walk into a Little Italy bar, shoot his mobster dad in the chest</b>, and calmly walk back out, disappearing into the Manhattan din. The murder was never solved. And the old mob adage “an eye for an eye” went unfulfilled.
But now, at death’s door, infamous mobster Tony the Hammer summons Joey and utters three mysterious words: “Wetherly Stevens, Barcelona.”
Joey has no doubt he’s just been told how to find his father’s killer.

From tantalizing tapas near La Sagrada Familia to bourbon-soaked pulled pork sandwiches at a South Carolina B&B, murder couldn’t get any more flavorful—or more personal.

Perhaps retired partner Alexander Wetherly has answers. Next stop: Hilton Head, where Wetherly is happily ensconced with a houseful of help serving up bottomless Arnold Palmers. But a peaceful Q&A on quaint Daufuskie Island turns murderous when the elderly gentleman who runs Joey’s B&B winds up stabbed to death. And this isn’t the first murder of its kind—it seems Daufuskie Island has a grisly and deeply-seated cold case all its own.

With the help of his cohorts—including Father Dom and a talented hacker (their researcher, Agnes)-- Joey meticulously puts together the pieces of two puzzles at once—and scrutinizes the connections between them—hoping to solve his father’s murder while preventing another from haunting the Carolina shores.

BOOK 6 -THE WOMAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH. As the men around her are dropping like flies
In his sixth labyrinthine hard-boiled puzzler</b>, NYC private eye Joey Mancuso finds himself neck-deep in <b>a maze of a murder mystery—the kind that weaves through military secrets and international espionage—at the center of which is the woman he loves. The vic, Oscar Stanton (name etched into his designer trousers), was gunned down in Washington Square Park in broad daylight, just after a lunchtime rendezvous with a business associate. A quick and dirty ID reveals the real Oscar Stanton was working in cybersecurities for the DOD—and, perhaps unsurprisingly, was KIA in Afghanistan. And since Mancuso’s antics tend to weave a winding yarn as intricately-connected as a satisfying Sherlock Holmes.
