The Big War started in Western Europe with a Soviet nerve gas attack that laid waste to France, Germany, and Spain. The world’s democracies fought back, and pilots like Hawk Hunter led the charge—tearing across the flaming wreckage of the continent at supersonic speeds. They pushed the Russians back and just when victory was in sight, a traitor at the highest level of government turned off America’s missile defense system, and Soviet nukes rained from the sky. Two years after the nuclear holocaust, Hunter gets a message to report to his old commander. America is in pieces: Pirates rule the skies, and an airborne armada is plotting to attack Football City (formerly known as St. Louis). The armada is made up of criminals flying state-of-the-art jets, and even though the government can only offer Hunter his old F-16, he will do whatever it takes to reclaim his ravaged homeland. Wingman is the first book of the Wingman series, which also includes The Circle War and The Lucifer Crusade.
America has been split in two: An army of cultish mercenaries from East Asia has seized the West Coast, conquering territory as far east as the Rocky Mountains—all in the name of Hashi Pushi, a Japanese despot revered as a god. The army may be scattered, but it receives support from two submarines that patrol the Pacific, each armed with a nuclear warhead. Any attack, they have promised, will result in the annihilation of two American cities—a price the battle-scarred populace is not prepared to pay. Onboard the carrier Enterprise, Major Hawk Hunter prepares to strike. His target is not the submarines, but Tokyo itself. In a modern-day Doolittle raid, he and his fellow pilots will attack this warrior cult from the top down, bringing the Wingman face to face with one of America’s most dangerous enemies. War of the Sun is the tenth book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Circle War.
The Soviet Union had nearly been defeated when the vice president of the United States revealed himself as a traitor. He deactivated the defense grid just long enough for the Russians to strike, reducing America to a battle-scarred wasteland. The United States would have remained in shambles, were it not for Hawk Hunter, the greatest fighter pilot the world has ever known. He rebuilt the country one dogfight at a time, with one goal firmly fixed in his mind: to bring America’s greatest traitor to justice. Backed by a team of commandos, Hunter storms the vice president’s compound in Bermuda, and returns with the traitor in chains. To convict him for his crimes, the war’s story must be told in full for the first time. And there is no one better to begin the telling than Hawk Hunter. He has risked his life on every front, and it’s his courage that will ensure America rises again. The Final Storm is the sixth book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Circle War.
When Soviet nukes destroyed the United States, Hawk Hunter took refuge in the only place he has ever felt safe: the sky. One of the finest fighter pilots of all time, he used his talents to found the Pacific American Air Corps (PAAC), a democratic counterweight to the corruption that dominates the rest of the country. Their first action was the Circle War: a Russian invasion led by the sinister terrorist Viktor Robotov. The PAAC expelled the Russians, but Robotov managed to escape. And the Wingman has taken up the pursuit. In a world where it’s a crime to wave stars and stripes, Hunter paints his F-16 red, white, and blue. Pursued by every air force on Earth, he tears up the sky in search of revenge. There are hundreds of killers on his tail, but he has only one target—and Hunter never misses. The Lucifer Crusade is the third book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Circle War.
The United States may have defeated the Soviet Union in the Battle for Western Europe, but the Russians ended World War III with a nuclear sneak attack that shattered America into a collection of warring states dominated by criminals, fascists, and pirates. Air power rules all in the New Order, and pilots like Hawk Hunter are the only form of law. One of the most decorated pilots of the old US Air Force, he flies for the Pacific American Air Corps, a loose group of flyboys who have taken it upon themselves to safeguard what remains of US borders. Flying his U-2 over the frozen tundra late one night, Hunter detects something on his infrared camera: fifty jet fighters, accompanied by a full-scale invasion force. And their sides bear the emblem that frightens him most: the red star of the Soviet Union. World War IV is about to begin. The Circle War is the second book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Lucifer Crusade.
In a parallel universe, the Nazi war machine has finally been defeated after fifty years of combat. But just a few weeks after Victory in Europe Day, war breaks out in a hitherto peaceful theater: the Pacific. A small American ship is on a routine patrol when its captain spies three aircraft-carrying submarines so large that they leave tidal waves in their wakes. Dozens of attack planes stream out from the colossal ships, destroying Pearl Harbor in a matter of minutes before disappearing back into the sea. Ace fighter pilot Hawk Hunter has heard this story before. A refugee from the dimension where World War II ended in 1945, he’s still getting used to this new universe when the Japanese strike. To defeat them, the United States will need the Wingman—the finest pilot of all time—to rise up in this reality just as he has in the other. Return of the Sky Ghost is the fifteenth book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Circle War.
After surviving years of nuclear warfare, mankind found itself facing a new, unimaginable threat: a comet headed directly for Earth. Once again, Hawk Hunter, the world’s greatest fighter pilot, was determined to rescue the human race. But this would be the last time. On a suicide mission, he flew headfirst into the comet, diverting its path, sparing the planet, and knocking himself into another universe altogether. He comes to in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, where he’s picked up by a US Navy cruiser whose size boggles the imagination. It’s 1997, and the United States is locked in a struggle with Nazi Germany that has lasted more than fifty years. America’s resolve is fading, and her citizens need a hero to end this terrible war once and for all. And Hunter will prove that no matter what the year, no matter what the dimension, he is the finest hero on Earth. The Sky Ghost is the fourteenth book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Circle War.
World War III ended with a Soviet nuclear attack that shattered the United States into fragments. Led by Major Hawk Hunter, what remained of the country’s armed forces fought off the Red Army invasion, and they have spent years rebuilding their fragmented nation. Only one territory was left deserted: the Southwest, now known as the Badlands. In order to reestablish the overland route between the eastern and western regions, a train of modern pioneers is sent across the desert. The train makes it safely, but when it arrives in Los Angeles, every passenger on board has vanished. To bring the fight to the bandits, Hunter designs his own train—a super-fortress on rails that will make the country safe again. But the new Wild West is no place for a lawman, and Hunter will need more than a six-gun to survive. Freedom Express is the seventh book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Circle War.
In the chaos that followed the end of World War III, Major Hawk Hunter took refuge in the arms of a woman named Dominique. As he waged war against the Soviets, fighting to restore the United States, the nation’s greatest fighter pilot and the woman he loved became the most famous couple of the Free World. But Hunter’s campaign soon tore them apart, and he was forced to send her to Canada, where his enemies claimed Dominique as their own. Drugged, tortured, and imprisoned, she waits helplessly—praying for his return. After leading a daring raid to rescue his beloved, Hunter announces his retirement, declaring that only a nuclear threat could get him back into the cockpit. But such a threat is coming—in the sleek black nuclear submarines now steaming toward the eastern seaboard, whose warheads threaten everything Hunter has fought to rebuild. Skyfire is the eighth book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Circle War.
A Boeing 727 is making a routine charter flight out of Football City—formerly known as St. Louis—when three F-4 Phantoms appear on its tail and open fire. No match for the lightning-quick Phantoms, the 727’s pilot is about to give up when his assailants explode in mid-air, becoming the latest casualties of Hawk Hunter, the Wingman. Hunter is the greatest fighter pilot the world has ever known. Most recently, he brought the United States back from the brink of extinction. But a new threat has emerged from the south: An army of neo-Nazis has seized control of the Panama Canal, and they’re armed to the teeth. Their hateful ideology may be decades out of date, but these jackbooted killers have firepower that is state-of-the-art. The Twisted Cross is the fifth book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Circle War.

It’s been years since the Soviet Union used its last dying breath to rain nuclear annihilation upon the United States. Now, freedom’s greatest enemy is no longer the entire Russian government; it’s a single Russian man: Viktor Robotov, a demented genius, is an expert at inciting mayhem. Twice he has manipulated global politics to produce catastrophic wars, and twice the pilot Hawk Hunter has thwarted him. But Robotov’s latest scheme will force Hunter to fly higher than he ever has before—all the way to outer space. On a state-of-the-art Russian shuttle, Robotov launches himself into orbit, planning to collect the derelict laser satellites left over from the so-called Star Wars defense system.

Equally alarming are reports claiming that Hawk’s former girlfriend, Dominique, is living with the head of the Russian secret police in a Manhattan penthouse.
Buzzing through the city’s skyscraper canyons in a tiny STOL Highlander and glimpsing the enemy invaders’ massive weaponry for himself, Hawk realizes he’s up against the greatest danger his homeland has ever faced, even with the help of Captain “Bull” Dozer and his team of ex-Marines. But with the woman and the country he loves in dire peril, threatened by a mysterious convoy of Russian superships, the Wingman will apply all his aviation prowess and strategic ingenuity to devise a plan to launch the fiercest, most crucial battle for America yet, no matter the risks.

Low on fuel while patrolling the South Pacific, Captain “Crunch” O’Malley has no choice but to touch down on Xmas Island, a capitalist’s paradise, where anything can be bought or sold. On his first fly-by, he finds the hedonistic hot spot is nothing more than a blackened hole in the ground. A weapon of extreme power has wiped out every trace of life on the island, and the United States could be next. The carnage was wreaked by a battleship armed with an array of sixteen-inch cannons that, in a matter of minutes, could obliterate any city on Earth. As far as Hawk Hunter is concerned, that constitutes a direct threat to the West Coast. And so, as he has done so many times before, he will suit up and defend the nation that he loves. The Ghost War is the eleventh book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Circle War.

Refusing to let Russian aggression go unpunished, former U.S. president Kevin Martindale approaches Polish president Peter Wilk with a radical solution: a counterattack using a covert force of Cybernetic Infantry Device (CID): manned robots.
Underwritten by the wealthy Wilk, Operation Iron Wolf is launched—without the knowledge of the Americans or its NATO partners. The CID’s initial strikes are successful, infuriating Gryzlov and propelling President Barbeau to pledge western help to investigate the attack. With international tensions at the boiling point, Martindale’s secret alliance, supported by the best military technology, is determined to outmaneuver the Russians.
In this battle that will determine the fate of Eastern Europe, just which side will win?

In 1950, Captain Ken McCoy’s report on North Korean hostilities meets with so much bureaucratic displeasure that he is promptly booted out of the Corps—and just as promptly picked up by the fledgling CIA. Soon, his predictions come true: on June 25th the North Koreans invade across the 38th parallel. Immediately veterans scattered throughout military and civilian life are called up, many with only seventy-two hours notice. For these men and their families, names such as Inchon and Pusan will acquire a new, bloody reality—and become their greatest challenge of all...
Some speculate that the war between the two worlds began 700 million years ago, while others say it started in 1947 over a small town in New Mexico called Roswell. Regardless of dates, the war is now upon us, and after centuries of watching, the enemy attacked. The plans of a million years are finally ready for what we have always known was coming---Armageddon.
As world allies fall to the wayside, a growing political faction from several nations sends a clear signal that cooperation between the superpowers and the lesser states cannot succeed. As nations start a mad scramble to realign their military structures, the war begins silently in the depths of the oceans, and flares to global brightness with the first military strike in history between two different worlds. Only one element in the arsenal of the world can possibly give Earth a fighting chance at survival---a small being that has already saved the world once in the Arizona desert is now called upon to outthink his former masters---the Matchstick Man.
While Matchstick Man searches for the real motivation behind the invasion, the Event Group is the one entity that refuses to accept the inevitable defeat of humankind. They've learned that the answer to this war has always been here on earth buried deeply in our ancient past, and that they may even hold the clue to salvation inside their own artifact vault. But with the devastating loss of its military arm and one of their leaders, Colonel Jack Collins, the group is being torn apart by internal conflict and devastating personal decisions. Even worse, the group's old enemies have returned to take revenge, and the worst fears of Department 5656 are realized---a breach in security allows intruders to get at the secrets inside the complex in Nevada.
Can the group come together to defeat their enemy and defend the planet? As the war wages on, countries fall, nations fight to the last man, and the fate of the planet depends on a few good men and women in this action-packed thrill ride from New York Times bestselling author David L. Golemon.
One is a small being that is kind and benevolent, brimming with intense emotion and intelligence. The other, however, is an animal of remarkable strength and power. It has been brought clandestinely to our world with one sole purpose: the total extinction of all life on Earth. It is called the Destroyer of Worlds.
Only the Event Group, the most secret agency in the history of the U.S. government, is prepared to wage battle against such a creature. The Event Group is a dedicated collection of the nation's most brilliant men and women of science, philosophy and the military. Their difficult task: solving the mysteries of the past and uncovering the hidden truths behind the myths and legends propagated throughout world history. In doing so they protect America from past mistakes---and ensure that history's errors will never be repeated.
An act of war that started in New Mexico decades ago, and was covered up by another far darker organization, has been discovered by the Group at the same time as the new and seemingly identical incident threatens to wipe out the Earth's population. In the desert wastelands of the American Southwest, a battle is about to commence as the two creatures set out to fulfill their own destinies among the human race.
Led by the valiant Major Jack Collins, the Event Group wages total war in the heat-soaked sands of the desert landscape. Using the benevolent creature as an ally and resource, they combine forces with the powerful might of the U.S. military and prepare themselves for an epic battle against the most dangerous threat against human existence that history has ever seen.
Event tells of an epic struggle between two worlds. Author David Lynn Golemon has written a classic supernatural thriller, each page bringing human civilization closer to extinction, that proves a blistering roller-coaster ride of thrills and adventure.
In the first weeks after World War II, a squeaky-clean new second lieutenant named James D. Cronley Jr. is spotted and recruited for a new enterprise that will eventually be transformed into something called the CIA. One war may have ended, but another one has already begun, against an enemy that is bigger, smarter, and more vicious: the Soviet Union.
The Soviets have hit the ground running, and Cronley’s job is to help frustrate them, harass them, and spy on them any way he can. His recruiter thinks he has the potential to become an asset—though, of course, he could also screw up spectacularly. And in his first assignment, it looks like that’s exactly what might happen. He’s got seven days to extract a vital piece of information from a Soviet agent, but Cronley’s managed to rile up his superior officers (he seems to have a talent for it), and if he fails, it could be one of the shortest intelligence careers in history.
There are enemies everywhere—and, as Cronley is about to find out, some of them even wear the same uniform he does.
In the closing months of the war, the United States made a secret deal with Reinhard Gehlen, head of German intelligence’s Soviet section. In exchange for a treasure trove of intelligence on the Soviets and their spies within the U.S. atomic bomb program, Gehlen’s people would be spirited to safety in Argentina.
Only a handful of people know about the deal. If word got out, all hell would break loose—and the U.S. would lose some of the most valuable intelligence sources they possess. It is up to Frade and company to keep them safe.
But some people have other ideas...
The New York Times bestselling author of Leviathan and Primeval is back at full throttle with an adrenaline-pumping addition to the Event Group Thriller Series.
The United States is ready to make a triumphant return to the moon, striking out boldly into the solar system in an attempt to regain the confidence of the heady days of the Apollo program. The first of what are to be many missions to the lunar surface was designed to find the frozen water needed to prepare to build a base to launch an assault on Mars.
But a shocking discovery at Shackleton Crater brings the first Prometheus mission to an abrupt halt. Remote robots uncover human skeletal remains and a base that had been destroyed countless millennia ago. The information is sent back to earth where forensic analysis at NASA reveals the corpse to be over seven hundred million years old.
A secret this devastating cannot be kept forever, and the news is leaked to the world. Soon nations are thrown into a head-long collision, pitting governments against their own citizens as the flames of fundamentalism start a conflagration that threatens to engulf the world as a race to return the moon is on.
The Event Group is tasked to unravel the mystery and to offer something that can either explain our ancient visitor or, at least, keep the world from descending into chaos. Colonel Jack Collins once again leads a team of the world's greatest scientists and philosophers on a journey that will take the Event Group to the airless world of space. But while a battle rages over the truth of our heritage, the Event Group realizes that this may not be humanity's war alone. Could something else—someone else—be coming to finish a war that they started almost a billion years ago?
