Meet Red Harmon, a special ops veteran who learns he never left the call of duty . . .

To a trio of muggers, Red looks like just another suburban dad. But when they demand his wallet at knifepoint, something snaps. In the blink of an eye, two muggers are dead, the third severely injured, and Red doesn’t remember a thing. Once an elite member of the Det, a secret forces outfit whose existence is beyond classified, Red thought his active service was over.

But his memory is coming back—and a lethal killing machine is returning to duty . . .

Facing an unthinkable nuclear threat, a volatile international power play, and a personal attack against his family, Red has no choice. He must rejoin his old team, infiltrate the enemy camp, and complete the biggest mission of his life . . .

A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year

Powerful, thrilling, and explosively authentic, the novels of Brigadier General A.J. Tata have won acclaim from President George W. Bush, Glenn Beck, and the bestselling masters of suspense. In Besieged, he tackles the rise of domestic terrorism in America—and puts his hero, Jake Mahegan, in the crackling center of a firestorm. . .

It starts with the unthinkable. A school under siege. A shooter in the classroom. A nightmare scenario that has become all too common in today’s United States. But this time, former Delta Captain Jake Mahegan is there when it happens.

Checking in on the schoolteacher daughter of a colleague, Mahegan finds himself face to face with a merciless gunman rigged as a suicide bomber. Without warning, the school is attacked from the outside as well—and all hell breaks loose. The teacher shoots the gunman, Mahegan is knocked unconscious, and a twelve-year-old autistic girl named Misha is kidnapped.

When the smoke clears, Mahegan is left with a long list of unanswered questions—and a deeply personal mission to rescue Misha. Racing against the clock, his search will take him from the tech-fueled think-tanks of a North Carolina factory to the top-secret nerve centers of embedded Iranian agents. It’s all part of a bigger, darker conspiracy that’s taking domestic terrorism to a whole new level. And it’s up to Mahegan to stop what could be the most devastating attack in U.S. history. . .

Praise for BESIEGED

“Tata’s hero. . .is still someone you want on your side when the odds are not favorable. Fans of Lee Child and Brad Thor will also enjoy [Jake] Mahegan’s adventures.” —Booklist

“Tata combines distinctive characters and unconventional threats to thrilling effect . . . terrific.” —Publishers Weekly (Starred review)

Praise for A.J. Tata and his electrifying thrillers

“Foreign and Domestic is absolutely fantastic . . . pulse-pounding . . . a brilliant, cutting-edge plot that will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat until the very last page.” —New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor

“Gripping and gritty.” —Richard North Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Brigadier General Tata donates a portion of his earnings to the USO Metro DC, the North Carolina Heroes Fund, and the Michael Murphy Foundation.



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 terrora terror so primal that it rends the very fabric of
everyday lifeis
released into the homes, limos, and private jets of America’s quasi-monarchical
class.



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.
