THE COBRA CORRIDOR: A Spy Action Thriller Inside The CIA & NSA’s War On Global Nuclear Terrorism

What happens when an intercontinental ballistic missile is launched from the plains of Nebraska to annihilate Beijing?

How come it deliberately returns to American soil killing over 4,500 people on Mother’s Day instead?

Who is in control of The United States’ nuclear arsenal?

More importantly, why is a CIA Special Operations Group’s mission in Lebanon being sabotaged?

Inside the White House, a terrified Situation Room has the Secretary of Defense, championed by his military Pit Bulls from the Pentagon, at the throats of the NSA Director and Secretary of State. Chasing espionage answers, NSA spy satellites pick up chatter between an Oriental and an American accent. Syrian terrorists have control of the United States’ land based ICBM arsenal and threaten to obliterate Washington, D.C. unless their ransom demands are met.

An exclusive Special Operations team is called in to hunt down the unprecedented black threat. Consisting of ex Seals, pilots, specialized snipers, assassins and ex-prisoners, they are lead by two brothers John and James Cable, who hate each other. Why was James, besides currently suffering from post-traumatic stress, not their first choice?

President Harold Willis is trapped in a whirlpool of lies and deception with his clandestine intelligence and the NSA as the encrypted secret Golden Codes cannot be hacked. With no cooperation from MI6, Mossad, counter intelligence or any other covert agency, war game nuclear bomb analyses declares treason and the hunt for a traitor is launched. The initial threat of external Cyber warfare is eliminated. DEFCON 2 is authorized, the first time since the Gulf War and only previously in the Cuban Missile Crisis during the cold war, in a race to prevent any warhead exiting a silo and avoiding a self-inflicted first strike. All is not what it seems.

Boosted by the Air Force the Special Ops team cruise through international air space targeting Beirut, Lebanon. Their combat mission spirals out of control when James disobeys orders in an explosive F-22 dogfight and the whole team gets blown out of the sky. How is it that John and James are the only ones able to escape and eject over the southern countryside of Lebanon?

Can they avoid being taken hostage? With only eight hours left, are they able to save the lives of millions?

The Nazi Spy: Nazi Spy Mystery series Book 1

Scotland. 1941. Fiona, rich and privileged, is trapped in a loveless marriage to a Flight Lieutenant in the Royal Air Force. Although, at thirty-seven, she is no longer the pretty young thing she used to be, she still secretly clings to the romantic dreams of her youth. The very young and very handsome Flight Lieutenant Matthew Manfred, in the same squadron as her husband, is starting to figure very strongly in those dreams… Out there, meanwhile, in the real world, Great Britain is on its knees, and Germany triumphant. War threatens not just the survival of Great Britain, but also Fiona’s position and wealth. And even her life… You see, murder has raised its ugly head… Someone close to her has been killed. But who is the murderer? And who might be his (or her) next victim? Fiona sets out to investigate, but it’s not going to be easy, because, you see, there are another two mysteries she needs to solve. Firstly, who has been writing love letters to her? Very beautiful letters, but letters of an extremely intimate nature… Then there’s the other mystery, probably the most important, and the most threatening of all. You see, she fears there is a spy in her midst…who is about to strike the most lethal blow of all… She will have to find out who that person is, not just to protect her country, but to protect herself. She must tread carefully, without arousing suspicions. Are the murderer and the spy one and the same person? Or could they possibly be two different people? Who is implicated? Is it dour, dull Squadron Leader Jackson? Or Belinda, his cheeky, promiscuous wife? Is it ladies’ man, Flight Lieutenant George Turnbill? Or Paula Wentworth, his latest, shameless squeeze? What about the moustachioed Group Captain Jenkins? Or Mary Wilkinson, looking far too attractive in her smart blue-grey uniform? And, to Fiona’s annoyance, looking far too young… And what is the role in all this of gorgeous, young Flight Lieutenant Matthew Manfred, who once gave Fiona a soft, lingering kiss she just can’t forget? What secrets are hidden in his beautiful, throbbing breast? And is he the person who has been writing sweet nothings to her? Fiona hopes so, but fears he might turn out to be something a good deal worse, and quite terrifying… And what is young Mary Wilkinson to him? Fiona has to tread warily, as if on eggshells, because, if she makes one false move, it could well turn out to be her last.
