The year is 2181 AD. The law and order forces have been completely dissolved and the military has been handed over the power of control for a smoother functioning of the nation. The move is effective at first, but not until the rise of an unknown enemy that threatens to not only disrupt the system that governs the nation but also threatens to create a draconian world. Termed as the Anti-Nationals, they show no mercy or any attempts at negotiations as they always leave behind a trail of destruction. Their efforts are countered by the military organization, BASE. The Trident Squad, comprising of Shekhar, Jenny, Mahesh and Sonia, are one of the many squads of BASE assigned to find out the secrets of these anti-nationals and eradicate them. The squad is known to the citizens as the best soldiers BASE has produced, with years of combat experience and a service record unlike anything.However, while the squad believes that BASE has been successful in countering the anti-national activities, little do they realize that what they are seeing may just be a facade… and that the war with the anti-nationals is just getting started.

About the author

A B.Com graduate with around 9 years of experience in the BPO field and currently working as a quality analyst, 'RESILIENCE' is a futuristic thriller which not only talks about leadership and teamwork, but also, tries to bring in an awareness of how an issue – be it national or international, small or big, personal or public – if not taken care of at an earlier stage can lead to much bigger issues that can go way out of control. The book delves on the aspect of how a leader is also a part of the team and like any other team mate or colleague, a leader's failure should not affect the functioning of a team. A leader can fail, he/she is only human but a team cannot. The book also delves on the aspect of a national issue, an unknown enemy that has risen not from the outside, but from within the nation. This unknown enemy threatens to disrupt the peace and harmony, and tries to form a draconian world.

*NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*

An “outstanding” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) blistering thriller featuring a brilliant and unorthodox Army investigator, his enigmatic female partner, and their hunt for the Army’s most notorious—and dangerous—deserter from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille and Alex DeMille.

When Captain Kyle Mercer of the Army’s elite Delta Force disappeared from his post in Afghanistan, a video released by his Taliban captors made international headlines. But circumstances were murky: Did Mercer desert before he was captured? Then a second video sent to Mercer’s Army commanders leaves no doubt: the trained assassin and keeper of classified Army intelligence has willfully disappeared.

When Mercer is spotted a year later in Caracas, Venezuela, by an old Army buddy, top military brass task Scott Brodie and Maggie Taylor of the Criminal Investigation Division to fly to Venezuela and bring Mercer back to America—preferably alive. Brodie knows this is a difficult mission, made more difficult by his new partner’s inexperience, by their undeniable chemistry, and by Brodie’s suspicion that Maggie Taylor is reporting to the CIA.

With ripped-from-the-headlines appeal, an exotic and dangerous locale, and the hairpin twists and inimitable humor that are signature DeMille, The Deserter is the first in a timely and thrilling new series from an unbeatable team of True Masters: the #1 New York Times bestseller Nelson DeMille and his son, award-winning screenwriter Alex DeMille.

ON NOVEMBER 22, 1963, THREE SHOTS RANG OUT IN DALLAS, PRESIDENT KENNEDY DIED, AND THE WORLD CHANGED. WHAT IF YOU COULD CHANGE IT BACK?

In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King—who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer—takes readers on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

It begins with Jake Epping, a thirty-five-year-old English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching GED classes. He asks his students to write about an event that changed their lives, and one essay blows him away—a gruesome, harrowing story about the night more than fifty years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a sledgehammer. Reading the essay is a watershed moment for Jake, his life—like Harry’s, like America’s in 1963—turning on a dime. Not much later his friend Al, who owns the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to the past, a particular day in 1958. And Al enlists Jake to take over the mission that has become his obsession—to prevent the Kennedy assassination.

So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson, in a different world of Ike and JFK and Elvis, of big American cars and sock hops and cigarette smoke everywhere. From the dank little city of Derry, Maine (where there’s Dunning business to conduct), to the warmhearted small town of Jodie, Texas, where Jake falls dangerously in love, every turn is leading eventually, of course, to a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and to Dallas, where the past becomes heart-stoppingly suspenseful, and where history might not be history anymore. Time-travel has never been so believable. Or so terrifying.
