The Savannah Project
The truth can be a dangerous thing.

Terrorism, duty, and personal safety collide when Jake Pendleton, an investigator for the NTSB, is called to investigate an aircraft accident in Savannah, Georgia during the St. Patrick's Day celebration. The accident, which at first appears to be quite run-of-the-mill, turns out to be anything but. Since Jake is not willing to pretend there are no suspicious circumstances and more than the usual share of rather unlikely "coincidences," he sets off a veritable avalanche of secrets, violence and treachery. Aided by an unlikely partner, Gregg Kaplan, the air traffic controller who was the last person in contact with the airplane that crashed, Jake sets out to untangle the webs of deceit and to find a vicious killer. 

Nothing is as it seems, nobody is who you thought them to be. 
Nothing is sacred. 
Nobody is safe.

The Toymaker
Former NTSB Investigator Jake Pendleton faces a dilemma as the line blurs between right and wrong. After his judgment comes into question, Jake is entrusted to his new mentor, an eccentric old man who sees beyond Jake’s flaws. A man who makes ‘toys for spies.’ 

A man known as The Toymaker. 

Jake’s first assignment reunites him with Gregg Kaplan in a daredevil mission to rescue a fellow agent held captive in Yemen. He risks his life to stop the first attack of an al Qaeda mastermind. But now, with no one to trust but himself, can Jake stop the terrorist from destroying what is most precious to the free world? 

Unfortunately, more trouble comes his way as a killer from his past threatens something more important to Jake than his own life, leaving him to make the hardest decision any man ever has to make— 

Who to sacrifice.

Book One of the Black Flagged series.

A graduate of the Department of Defense's experimental Black Flag program, Daniel Petrovich carries secrets he'd rather keep buried. Secrets his government has hidden in the deepest vaults of the Pentagon. Unfortunately for Daniel, someone is trying to raise Black Flag from the dead and bring Daniel back with it. Someone who knows all of his darkest secrets. 

In exchange for the promise of a clean slate and a chance to keep the life he has built with the woman he loves, he agrees to carry out one final mission. 

Daniel's life is about to disintegrate, as he becomes the focus of a relentless FBI manhunt and the target of a vengeful CIA agent. To survive, he'll be forced to release a dark side he fought for years to keep suppressed. A dark side with few boundaries, and even fewer loyalties.

Black Flagged lays the foundation for a gritty, unapologetic series exploring the often unceremoniously brutal world of covert operatives and government agency politics.

With the deadline approaching, Lisa must do the unimaginable to protect the children and get everyone out alive.

Things only worsen when one of the friends gets attacked and put in the hospital.

Austin believes she's coping well with her phobia, the result of a traumatic childhood incident, until she finds herself locked in a windowless room, and someone turns out the lights.

This book tells the story of William Ridley, ex-special forces soldier, now marketing manager for a major aerospace firm who is recruited into a covert CIA-run organization informally called The Cancer Club. 

Having been diagnosed with prostate cancer, Ridley is recruited by the Club through a renowned cancer treatment center in Virginia. It is there that he is told his cancer is untreatable. The pitch is: do something worthwhile with the short time you have left – do something meaningful for your country. After giving up all he owns and severing all ties, including those with a woman he’d planned to marry, Ridley joins the group whose members are sent on high-risk, often one-way missions to take out selected targets in the United States’ global war on terror.

In the meantime, the Lions of the Jihad, a sophisticated Islamic terrorist organization with a sleeper cell in New York City, moves forward with a plan to detonate a powerful and highly radioactive dirty bomb near the Hell Gate section of the East River. This pending disaster looms large when Ridley discovers the Cancer Club carries its own malignancy, one that makes all other CIA-run black operations look like child’s play.

Fox barely escapes after learning that Ares has acquired a hyperdeadly microbe--called Pandora--that is believed to have wiped out ancient civilizations. The trail leads Fox to Tokyo where he discovers that people within the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Japanese Intelligence want Pandora for themselves. The only person Fox can trust is a woman from his past who he nearly got killed.

An Agent on his final mission for Britain's Secret Intelligence Service unseals a document concealed since WWII revealing a shocking truth from the past: that Allied commandos had not thwarted Germany's nuclear bomb development, they had only driven it underground - allowing the creation of a device hundreds of times more powerful than even the atomic bomb eventually dropped on Hiroshima.

Stepping back into the years before WWII, a secret underground Nazi organization, unknown to both Churchill's Intelligence geniuses and US General Grove's ALSOS teams at Oak Ridge, had been formed exploiting German nuclear scientists and extorted Jewish nuclear physicists in a diabolical conspiracy to create the world's first Hydrogen Bomb.

Caught in an emotional struggle between his idealism for the Third Reich and exploding the Nazi's Super Bomb on innocent civilians as Germany nears it's disastrous end in 1945, the secret organization's leader Horst Deeke inevitably becomes the only Nazi with the ability to destroy it.

As Horst 's own future is viciously attacked by his vindictive Nazi overlords, a transformation finally drives him into a fanatical revenge to destroy his own diabolical creation. But, after being stripped of his authority, Horst may be left powerless to stop Nazi Germany's leaders from exploding their disastrous horror in a major city of the Allied world.

Special prosecutor John Stryker follows the clues and uncovers a fantastic terror plot that threatens the heartland of America.
