Major Penelope Baldwin,
accomplished pilot and tactician, could have expected a bright future and
stable military career until a dubious flight mission over Al A’Zamiyah, Iraq results
in the loss of her left leg, and any opportunity for motherhood.
As Penelope struggles in recovery,
her mother Evelyn struggles to secure their financial future and cover mounting
medical bills. Buying the lies of disingenuous bankers and marketing shills, Evelyn
places her savings within the derivatives market, a bubble that (unbeknownst to
her) is on the verge of bursting. The collapse will destroy what’s left of her finances,
along with the investments and pensions of countless citizens.
Within months, on a wintry night in
Georgia, a coked-up stock trader miscalculates a power turn in a Porsche coupe,
sending its right front wheel over the curb and crashing into that which
Penelope holds most dear.
The stage is set for a dedicated
warrior, an American heroine, to turn her sights on those greedy, callous men responsible
for ripping away her future.
Baldwin, along with Tessa Montgomery (Senior Chief USMC),
Cynthia Washington (RN MSW), and six other highly competent women, all similarly
devastated by the avarice, arrogance, and indifference of America’s ruling
elite, channel their grief and rage, and their search for justice, to become a finely
orchestrated and well-financed band of predators.
Several months later, several of
the most powerful of America’s financial and political elite are slaughtered in
forty-storied monuments to their egos. Then a terror―a terror so primal that it rends the very fabric of
released into the homes, limos, and private jets of America’s quasi-monarchical
An invisible society of
professional predators is leading a lethal attack on the long sacred
relationship between money and politics. Two critical questions are explicitly
raised by the attackers: When the voice of the few, the wealthy, the privileged is the
sound of the money essential for election, can the voice of the common citizen
be heard at all? Can
an ethical government exist when the special interests it’s charged with
policing have captured the political system and the means of election through
their vast wealth?
How will the country’s people,
political leaders, and top business executives respond? Find out by reading Aftershock,
a heart-thumping fictional thriller by debut novelist Joe Lane.

Special operative Eric Steele, introduced in Man of War, is on the hunt for a formidable Russian terrorist in this high-intensity tale of international intrigue from the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Outlaw Platoon.
Badly injured while stopping a rogue agent from obtaining weapons of mass destruction, elite warrior Eric Steele is drawn back into service before he’s ready when unknown assailants break into his home near Pittsburgh, injuring his mother and stealing his father’s pistol.
An Alpha—an elite soldier under the direct command of the president of the United States—Steele is hell-bent on finding the attackers and bringing them to justice. While tracking his foe, Steele discovers he’s become entangled in a far more sinister plan that’s already been set in motion.
A terrorist named Zakayev, once locked away in a maximum-security prison in Russia, has escaped and joined forces with Hassan Sitta, a man who’s shown his prowess and ingenuity with a spectacular bomb planted somewhere in the Middle East that hasn’t been ignited—and no one can find. But that is only the beginning of a horrifying plan that, if it succeeds, will shatter international alliances and bring the world to the brink of war.
Now, the hunted must turn the tables on the hunter—Steele must find a way to stay alive and stop Zakayev before innocent lives are lost.
