WHEN YOU'RE IN THE DEATH BUSINESS, EACH DAWN COULD BE YOUR LAST. Raw, straightforward, and powerful, Ed Kugler's account of his two years as a Marine scout-sniper in Vietnam vividly captures his experiences there--the good, the bad, and the ugly. After enlisting in the Marines at seventeen, then being wounded in Santo Domingo during the Dominican crisis, Kugler arrived in Vietnam in early 1966. As a new sniper with the 4th Marines, Kugler picked up bush skills while attached to 3d Force Recon Company, and then joined the grunts. To take advantage of that experience, he formed the Rogues, a five-sniper team that hunted in the Co Bi-Than Tan Valley for VC and NVA. His descriptions of long, tense waits, sudden deadly action, and NVA countersniper ambushes are fascinating. In DEAD CENTER, Kugler demonstrates the importance to a sniper of patience, marksmanship, bush skills, and guts--while underscoring exactly what a country demands of its youth when it sends them to war.

After a tragic school shooting, former army sniper, turned attorney, Ben Baker must decide between what's legal and what's right. Together with long-time friend, and former sniper buddy, Frank Senich, the two seek justice against a child trafficking ring. The pair must draw on their military sniping skills and their expertise in hand-to-hand combat to see their mission to its end. A mission that includes meth addicts breaking into Baker's house; long range sniping; confrontations with the County Attorney and Attorney General; and battles with a former SEAL sniper, truck stop thugs, child abductors, and a pair of giants, one of whom was kicked out of professional wrestling for injuring too many wrestlers. Along the way, in order to succeed, and more importantly survive, Ben Baker must lose his conscience. Advanced Praise for Lost Conscience: "Alain Burrese's Lost Conscience is a fascinating and intricate thriller - the perfect read for anyone who thinks the criminal justice system needs a kick in the teeth and a swift backhand to the jaw for good measure." - Andrew McAleer, author of Fatal Deeds "A hardcore thriller extraordinaire." - Lawrence Kane, author of The Little Black Book of Violence "A riveting read " - Ed Kugler, author of Dead Center: A Marine Sniper's Two-Year Odyssey in the Vietnam War "Action adventure at its best. Reminds me of Grisham with more action." - Ken Farmer, Co-author of Black Eagle Force: Eye of the Storm "Lost Conscious is a highly realistic, gritty, and in-your-face read for those craving an action-packed story torn from today's headlines. It doesn't get much better than this." - Loren W. Christensen, author of nearly 50 books including On Combat and Dukkha - The Suffering: A Sam Reeves Martial Arts Thriller "Benjamin Baker isn't just another courtroom lawyer, he's ex-military and not afraid to get his hands dirty when it comes to sexual predators of children. Look out John Grisham, Michael Connelly and Andrew Vachss, Alain Burrese is in town." - Marc "Animal" MacYoung, author of Taking it to the Streets: Making Your Martial Art Street Effective

Eugene B. Sledge diente als Soldat im 3. Bataillon, 5. Kompanie der berühmten 1. US-Marineinfanteriedivision – der ältesten, ruhmreichsten und größten aktiven Division des US Marine Corps. Im Zweiten Weltkrieg wurde der 20-Jährige an die Front im Pazifik geschickt, wo er an den Gefechten der amerikanischen Armee gegen die Japaner um Peleliu und Okinawa teilnahm. In diesem Buch beschreibt Sledge auf klare und erschütternd nüchterne Weise die Erfahrungen eines Marines an der Front im Pazifik. Die Grausamkeit und Brutalität des Krieges sind darin ebenso festgehalten wie das Gefühl aufrichtiger Kameradschaft, schonungslose Schilderungen wüster Kämpfe sowie rührende Momentaufnahmen am Rande des Geschehens. Ein einzigartiges Dokument des Schreckens und ein weltbekannter Klassiker der Kriegsliteratur.

Tom Marcus wurde vom MI5 rekrutiert, um sein Land zu schützen – undercover gegen interne und externe Bedrohungen, den Terror und zum Schutz der größten Geheimnisse des Landes. Tägliche Entscheidungen, die Leben oder Tod bedeuten. Ein nie enden wollender Kampf, den viele seiner Kollegen nicht überleben sollten. Bei einem seiner Einsätze nahm er die Identität eines verwahrlosten Obdachlosen an – und stellte bei einem Verdächtigen außergewöhnliche Verhaltensweisen fest. Zeichen, die vielleicht niemand außer einem ausgebildeten Agenten bemerkt hätte. Tom ließ das Haus stürmen. Gefunden wurden einige Gewehre und sechs selbstgebaute Bomben. Diese hätten, so zeigte sich später, 60 Schulkinder töten sollen, die sich auf der Rückfahrt von einer Klassenfahrt befanden. Dieser fesselnde Bericht über einen Krieg, der um unserer Sicherheit willen geführt wird, weiht uns in eines der am besten behüteten Geheimnisse Europas ein – den britischen Geheimdienst MI5.
