 “Rogue politicians, a maniac scientist and the doomsday weapon—The Omega Missile comes screaming down on target. A great action reader!” Stephen Coonts.

“The Omega Missile is an exciting, fast-paced on-the-edge look at a problematical vestige of the nuclear age—broken back global warfare.” PT Deutermann

A nuclear holocaust is just a button away—and someone’s about to push it.
The secret—the ultimate weapon, a missile that carries no warhead, just a doomsday system that can will launch every nuclear device in the US arsenal. No overrides. No countermands. No stopping it.

The terrorists—desperate men, driven over the edge by a government they feel betrayed them. They’ve taken over control of the Omega Missile, stated their demands, and are ready to push the button that will kill us all.

The White House—stumped, scared, and running out of time, America’s top military advisors suggest blasting to kingdom come, even though their bomb will level the entire state of Louisiana.

The last, best hope—Their names: Thorpe and Parker. He’s a Special Forces soldier with a marriage on the rocks and first hand knowledge of the terrorist leader. She’s an Air Force missile specialist, trained to accomplish her mission no matter what the obstacle. Both are racing the clock to stop the Omega Missile before zero hour arrives.

"Will leave you spellbound. Mayer’s long suit is detail, giving the reader an in-depth view of the inner workings of the Army and West Point." Book News

An epic series in the vein of HBO's Rome, following two ordinary men through extraordinary times; from West Point, through the Mexican War, into the Civil War.

Elijah Cord and Lucius Rumble swore oaths, both personal and professional. They were fighting for country, for a way of life and for family. Classmates carried more than rifles and sabers into battle. They had friendships, memories, children and wives. They had innocence lost, promises broken and glory found.

Duty, Honor, Country is history told epic and personal so we can understand what happened, but more importantly feel the heart-wrenching clash of duty, honor, country and loyalty. And realize that sometimes, the people who changed history, weren’t recorded by it.

Our story starts in 1840, in Benny Havens tavern, just outside post limits of the United States Military Academy. With William Tecumseh Sherman, Cord, and Benny Havens’ daughter coming together in a crucible of honor and loyalty. On post, in the West Point stables, Ulysses S. Grant and Rumble are preparing to saddle the Hell-Beast, a horse with which Grant would eventually set an academy record. On this day, all make fateful decisions that will change the course of their lives and history.

We follow these men forward to the eve of the Mexican War, tracing their steps at West Point and ranging to a plantation at Natchez on the Mississippi, Major Lee at Arlington, and Charleston, SC. We travel aboard the USS Somers and the US Navy mutiny that led to the founding of the Naval Academy at Annapolis.

We end with Grant and Rumble in New Orleans, preparing to sale to Mexico and war, and Cord with Kit Carson and Fremont at Pilot Peak in Utah during his great expedition west.

This is book 1 in the Duty, Honor, Country series. (Formerly titles West Point to Mexico)
