Now he's been given a second chance to do right by his country, his men, and himself. But Raynor's shot at redemption comes at a price.
A shadowy group of former colleagues has asked Raynor to return, alone, to Pakistan's badlands. His assignment seems clear: find his missing men and bring them home.

Yes We Can
To the few who survived the Great War, their reward was a cruel joke. The politicians had told them that all the major cities of the world had been destroyed, and it was only years later that Ben Raines and his legion of dedicated warriors learned the truth.

Refusing the direct order, Mason now finds himself on the run, hunted by his former comrades and labeled a terrorist by the country he faithfully served. Relying only on his survival skills and the help of Special Operations agent Renee Hart, Mason must embark on his gravest mission yet: unraveling a conspiracy that reaches all way to the President’s inner circle, and stopping the world’s most dangerous soldiers from completing their treacherous plan.

Outnumbered and out-armed, Raines and his men are no match against the black-shirt guerrilla forces.

Those warlords, thugs, and punks who escaped have taken their gangs north to the untamed wilderness of Alaska. In their hunger to finish the job, Raines and his rebel crew ride straight into a sniper's bullet. Knowing this may be their only chance, the outlaw armies prepare to make one final all-out counterattack on the forces of freedom, whose leader now lies near death. . .

But as they follow the trail of the virus across Southeast Asia to the United States, the Taskforce soon learns that the enemy they face may not be the enemy they should fear...
Scourge Upon The Land
While ending the rule of slavers, thugs, and the cannibalistic Night People on the Hawaiian Islands, Ben Raines and his rebel army learn of a new threat to America. A grim specter from the past--an army of Nazis led by the maniacal Jesus Dieguez Mendoza Hoffman--is marching through South America toward the vulnerable heartland of America. Not content enough to crush America, Hoffman has singled out Ben Raines for a hideous fate. Now, with the famed warrior a prisoner, his life hanging in the balance, only the outnumbered but undefeated Rebels stand in the way of the terrorist-trained Death's Head battalions bent on destroying the once proud land of liberty and freedom!
Commissioned at the highest level of the U.S. government, and designed to operate outside the bounds of U.S. law, a new counter-terrorist unit known as the Taskforce has just been formed, but not fully tested. Until now.
Pike Logan has been given a team of operators drawn from the CIA’s National Clandestine Service and the military’s Special Operations Forces without any say in selecting the men on which he must depend. While executing a full mission profile exercise on U.S. soil, a target of opportunity appears before the Taskforce is deemed mission capable.
Forced to execute, Pike and his team are sent to Yemen to track their first real target. The future of the Taskforce depends on their success, but when Pike is challenged by one of his own, their clear-cut mission teeters on the brink of disaster. The price of failure will reverberate much deeper than the loss of the target—straight into the presidency itself.
Includes an excerpt of the Pike Logan novel, The Forgotten Soldier.

Randy Wayne White's Ten Thousand Islands was "one of the most satisfying thrillers in recent memory" wrote the Chicago Tribune, and the starred review in Publishers Weekly said, "Of all the writers [in] the Florida mayhem boom, only White can claim to have created a series hero to match Hemingway's memorable outdoorsmen and John D. MacDonald's much-missed Travis McGee." And now White has created his most electrifying novel yet.
On a working vacation to Guava Key, marine biologist Doc Ford notices two female joggers who follow the same route at the same time every day.

Forced to step in, Ford finds himself involved in a story of intrigue and revenge that becomes more dangerous with every turn-and some of them hit pretty close to home. Add to that a Bahamian relative he never knew he had, a letter leading to a treasure that may or may not exist, and some past history that becomes very alarmingly present, and his life has suddenly become very complicated. Not to mention the prospect of his death. . . .
Filled with crackling power and atmosphere, and some of the best suspense characters in fiction, Shark River is a triumph of storytelling.
