On a spring day early in the 20th Century, the unthinkable occurs.

A horse-drawn wagon carrying a bomb loaded with dynamite and shrapnel explodes in front of the House of Morgan in New York. Dozens are killed, and hundreds are wounded. The Wall Street Explosion, as it came to be known, ensures that the corner of Broad and Wall will be associated with the dawn of organized terror in America. Although New York and the financial center of the world recover, U.S. foreign policy will never be the same.

Months earlier, New Mexico’s statehood was threatened by Article X of the Treaty of Mesilla—the Revert Document. The document, that allows Mexico to reassert its claim over the territory, created an international conspiracy. Spanish-American war hero Adobe Centori, who fought to secure New Mexico statehood, returns in this sequel to Statehood of Affairs. Centori seeks redemption for the woman he could not save in the Revert Document conspiracy, only to be drawn into a greater conspiracy—a secret war against America. After the Wall Street bombing, a series of attacks in New York raises the stakes for all involved, none of whom can deny the sense of a coming catastrophic terror attack.

From New Mexico to New York, a search for anarchists and state-sponsored spies ensues. Centori joins a team of federal agents and city police officers in a campaign to stop the attacks, one that is fraught with dangerous saboteurs. They must uncover an international plot tied to Germany’s ambitions in the coming Great War.

Vince Flynn
#1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn introduces the young Mitch Rapp, as he takes on his first covert assignment—soon to be a major motion picture.

Mitch Rapp was a gifted college athlete without a care in the world…and then tragedy struck. Terrorists attacked innocent American citizens, and Rapp’s girlfriend was among the murdered. Two hundred and seventy souls perished on that cold December night, and thousands of family and friends were left searching for comfort. Mitch Rapp was one of them, but he was not interested in comfort. Now he wants retribution.

Two decades of cutthroat partisan politics have left the CIA and the country in an increasingly vulnerable position. Cold War veteran CIA Operations Director Thomas Stansfield knows he must prepare his people for the next war. America must confront Islamic terrorism with full force. Stansfield directs his protégée, Irene Kennedy, and his old Cold War colleague, Stan Hurley, to form a new group of clandestine operatives who will work outside the normal chain of command—men who do not exist.

What type of man is willing to kill for his country without putting on a uniform? Six months of intense training have prepared him to take the war to the enemy’s doorstep, and he does so with brutal efficiency. Rapp starts in Istanbul, where he assassinates the Turkish arms dealer who sold the explosives used in the terrorist attack. Rapp then moves on to Hamburg with his team and across Europe, leaving a trail of bodies. All roads lead to Beirut, though, and what Rapp doesn't know is that the enemy is aware of his existence and has prepared a trap. The hunter is about to become the hunted, and Rapp will need every ounce of skill and cunning if he is to survive the war-ravaged city and its various terrorist factions.

Behind the steely gaze of the nation's ultimate hero is a young man primed to become an American assassin.
Book 2
In Blood Song, Anthony Ryan introduced readers to “a fascinating world of conflicting religions and the wars fought in the name of those faiths” (Library Journal). Now Ryan’s epic tale continues as Vaelin Al Sorna discovers that there is no escape from the call of destiny…
 
“The blood-song rose with an unexpected tune, a warm hum mingling recognition with an impression of safety. He had a sense it was welcoming him home.”
 
Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior of the Sixth Order, called Darkblade, called Hope Killer. The greatest warrior of his day, and witness to the greatest defeat of his nation: King Janus’s vision of a Greater Unified Realm drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause Vaelin alone knows was forged from a lie. Sick at heart, he comes home, determined to kill no more. Named Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches by King Janus’s grateful heir, he can perhaps find peace in a colder, more remote land far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm.
 
But those gifted with the blood-song are never destined to live a quiet life. Many died in King Janus’s wars, but many survived, and Vaelin is a target, not just for those seeking revenge but for those who know what he can do. The Faith has been sundered, and many have no doubt who their leader should be. The new King is weak, but his sister is strong. The blood-song is powerful, rich in warning and guidance in times of trouble, but is only a fraction of the power available to others who understand more of its mysteries. Something moves against the Realm, something that commands mighty forces, and Vaelin will find to his great regret that when faced with annihilation, even the most reluctant hand must eventually draw a sword.
