JFK: The Dead Witnesses
The Medusa File: Crimes and Coverups of the US Government,
Kill Zone: A Sniper Looks at Dealey Plaza,
This book is now available in trade paperback and ebook form! When a desperate criminal takes innocent hostages, police SWAT teams must walk a tightrope of stress. Patience, negotiations, and prayer often fail in the face of an irrational killer--that's when the deadly cool of the police sniper must put an end to the terror. But the sniper gets just one chance--one squeeze of the trigger--and a miss can be more fatal than a direct hit, costing innocent lives. American's elite corps of police sharpshooters has kept closed ranks until now. Police Sniper captures the tension of duty on the front lnes of today's urban hostage crises. With gripping firsthand accounts of actual hostage sieges, Police Sniper takes us to the charged scenes of police stakeouts. With the snipers, we squint through rifle scopes directly into th ee yes of frantic captors...feel the wrenching terror of their victims...and witness the combination of steel nerves, razor-sharp focus, and pure adrenaline police snipers summon to carry out their missions. Police Sniper resonates with the peril of today's headlines.
"In this book are the stories of men who have spent nerve-wracking hours on blistering hot rooftops and in dark freezing rooms...For when the clock begins ticking down to the point where an innocent life may be lost, the single well-aimed shot of the police sniper becomes the shot that saves lives." GySgt Carlos Hathcock II, USMC, Ret.
Doorway to Hell: Disaster in Somalia
Spring 1993: Most of Somalia--outside of Mogadishu, was secured. Then something went drastically wrong...The mission was to feed the hungry, cure the sick, and bring peace to a country in anarchy. No formal government or organized infrastructure existed in this fourth world country governed by war lords and their armed bands of "gunmen." Operations "Restore Hope" and "Continue Hope" were planned and implemented to bring order to chaos. Unfortunately, what should have been a victory for the United Nations deteriorated into a humiliating defeat of massive proportions. Why did an American administration--and Congress--allow under-armed U.S. forces to be committed to an open-ended mission of "nation building" under the direction of the U.N. which was an entirely different mission than that of saving starving people? Available from Pen & Sword and Frontline Books at any book retailer.

The Hind Heist, A fast-paced and gripping thriller that takes place in the 1980s. A group of colorful characters are drawn to an ad in a mercenary magazine that offers a million dollars to anyone who can steal or produce a Russian Mi-24 "Hind" helicopter gunship to the magazine's owner. The group, consisting of a soon-to-retire police helicopter pilot, a former Vietnam Green Beret, a Spanish-speaking school teacher, and a washed up helicopter mechanic, discover that there are 34 Hind's, all within reach, only a few hours flying time from Los Angeles: in Nicaragua! All they had to do was get to Guatemala, cross the border after a jungle trek through hostile terrain, get into a heavily guarded air base, get into a Hind and get it started, then escape and evade pursuit long enough to cross the border back into Guatemala--or somewhere. Could they do it?
WMD: Attacks on America!
By Major Frank Stolz, Jr. USMC (Ret.)
After the Anthrax scare in Washington, DC, and the deaths of the Twin Towers victims on 9/11/01, Major Frank Stolz decided to check our government’s plans and advice to civilians dealing with future incidents of this nature. As he scanned the U. S. Government websites, he was astounded to discover the information provided on WMD subjects was addressed only to first responders and our military, and even that information was woefully lacking in specifics.
Since most people are neither medically nor militarily trained, his objective was to provide a WMD document with information and advice for my family and the general public. After 18 months of research he enlisted the assistance of a good friend, CWO-4 Jim Mulloy, a highly decorated and knowledgeable Marine, and together they produced the non-fiction portion of this book.
The original WMD document then became the inspiration for the dramatic fictional adventure, WMD Attacks on America!, now the first part of the book. In fact, since the book was finished some of the events and national terrorist alliances depicted have already occurred. We cannot be prepared if we continue to ignore all that is going on in today’s world. To order, see Major Stolz's website at www.wmdterror.com

Doorway to Hell: Disaster in Somalia
By Brigadier General Ed Wheeler (USA Ret.)
and Lt. Col. Craig Roberts (USAR Ret.)
Simply Outstanding!, February 25, 2002
If you want to understand what really happened on this blackest day of American history, you simply must read this book. The chances are it will go quickly for you. I ordered the book and found it on my door step on a Saturday evening. The following morning at 1:30am, I turned the final page of the narrative with the assurance that I finally understood what really happened on November 22, 1963 and, most importantly, why.
In particular, I was intrigued that the author was led to investigate the facts through his warrior instincts and that his investigation led far beyond the scope of what he originally thought to be an unsolved murder. The trail of this investigation leads beyond the Mafia, the CIA, the FBI, the US military, and all of the usual suspects right up to the small group of extraordinarily powerful men who truly control this world.
To Craig Roberts, Bravo Zulu! The good news
is that, in the end, despite the sinister plotting of the terrible forces
uncovered in this outstanding work, the good good guys will win and win
NOTE: KILL ZONE NOW AVAILABLE AT AMAZON.COM IN EBOOK AND HARD COPY
Here's a book that tells, as Paul Harvey would say, "the rest of the story!" After you've read "Kill Zone", you owe it to yourself to read "JFK, the Dead Witnesses". A mathematician was hired by The London Sunday Times in February 1967 to conduct a statistical profile on the probability of 18 witnesses connected to the JFK Assassination, having died in so short a period of time. He concluded that the probability was one hundred thousand trillion to one! As of January 1995 the list has grown to over 115... Even taking into account that some of the deaths would have occurred from natural causes, the circumstances surrounding the deaths of many of these people give you pause to consider the alternative. Follow the trail of dead bodies from the most obvious, Lee Harvey Oswald, and Jack Ruby, to several that stand the hair up on the back of your neck. Consider the death of Army Capt. Michael D. Groves who was in charge of the Honor Guard for the Kennedy's funeral. He died on 3 December 1963 one week later while sitting at the supper table... by simply falling over in his plate. The honor guard had been practicing for a presidential funeral 3 days prior to the assassination! This book is a wealth of information for JFK conspiracy researchers. It takes each witness individually (in chronological order of their death), and points out their relevance to the happenings of 22 November 1963 and the aftermath. Read about such notable personalities as syndicated columnist Dorothy Kilgallen who had interviewed Jack Ruby privately and was supposedly going to "blow the case wide open"... died of a drug and alcohol overdose within hours of submitting her last column. Her personal friend, confidant and supposed recipient of Kilgallen's notes, Mrs. Earl Smith died of a cerebral hemorrhage three days after Dorothy's death... at the advanced age of 45! Read about such notables as J. Edgar Hoover and Lyndon Johnson who had much to gain personally from the demise of President Kennedy. How about Jimmy Hoffa's disappearance? ... Or Congressman Hale Boggs, the only dissenting member of the Warren Commission who refused to sign the Warren Report until just before it was submitted... and who disappeared on an airplane flight in Alaska in 1972. Here's a book that will entertain you for hours and either enlighten you or confirm your worst fears.

The Airborne Terrorist Attack on the United States written BEFORE 9/11!
This is Craig Roberts' first novel, and it's a "must read" for adventure fans. This has the plausibility of Clancy's "The Sum of All Fears" coupled with the sobering reality of how vulnerable we are in a free society. Craig's many years of experience as a Police Officer are evident in the realism of the scenario. Written as only a Police Helicopter Pilot could write it, this is the story of an enraged Saddam Hussein's attempt to even the score for his crushing defeat in the Gulf War. Muslim extremists flying a stolen 'state of the art' Russian attack helicopter attempt the ultimate act of terrorism. The characters are human and believable, and the plot will make the cold chills run up and down your spine. If you like Tom Clancy, you'll love this one! Now available in book or ebook form at Amazon.com.
