$82.50The Athens Solution and Other Stories: The Athens Solution, The Tuesday Club, Interlude at Duane's, The Powder Monkey, and Kill Zone
The Athens Solution by Brad Thor For decades a terrorist organization known as 17 November wreaked havoc throughout Greece. For years, no member of the organization had ever been arrested, until a breakthrough occurred in 2002 when a prematurely detonated bomb gave clues that lead to 17 November safe houses, which contained additional caches of weapons, disguises and the group's signature .45-caliber Colt 1911 semiautomatic pistol used in some of their most high-profile assassinations. Since the 2002 raids things have been quiet in Greece, but intelligence officials are concerned that several members of the organization may have slipped through their net and have gone deeper underground. These same officials worry that if and when these last remaining members do surface again, it will be with a terrible vengeance. The Tuesday Club by Katherine Neville When Neville began her long-anticipated sequel to The Eight she was glad that she could revisit many fascinating historic figures, characters like Benjamin Franklin who, due to earlier constraints were limited to walk-on parts. Neville's research offers a big surprise that, inexplicably, none of the Franklin experts appeared to have noticed. When it came to her character's well-documented, almost obsessive, penchant for creating or joining private clubs, here was an enigmatic gap in his life. The Tuesday Club fills that void. Interlude at Duane's by F. Paul Wilson F. Paul Wilson's urban mercenary Repairman Jack first appeared in his New York Times bestselling novel The Tomb. Jack is a denizen of Manhattan who dwells in the interstices of modem society. He has no official identity, no social security number, pays no taxes. When you lose faith in the system, or the system lets you down, you go to a guy who's outside the system. That's Jack. But he's not a do- gooder. He's a career criminal and works strictly fee-for-service. The Powder Monkey by Ted Bell In The Powder Monkey we travel back in time to 1880. It's the tale of a lovelorn newspaperman's journey to the Channel Islands to learn the true story of the pirate captain Billy Blood's demise. In doing so, our hero learns how a small boy held captive aboard Blood's frigate, Mystere, is saved from certain death. The boy's name is Alex Hawke. Kill Zone by Robert Liparulo Police sniper Byron Stone is a compilation of Liparulo's acquaintances, including a SWAT sniper and an FBI sniper. These two men shared the qualities of quiet, nearly impenetrable machismo and subtly troubled spirits. The taking of lives made them each respect life that much more. They would kill only when it would save more lives, or a more innocent life. A sniper's knowledge that his job is necessary, crashing headlong into his humanity―this was the conflict Liparulo wanted to explore with Byron. Kill Zone opens a window on the police sniper's moral struggle.

Shultz's intimate account of this controversial episode is a timely reminder of the horrors of war and a moving tribute to Ploestl's heroes." —Publishers Weekly"We knew it was a disaster and knew that in the flames shooting up from those refineries we might be burned to death. But we went right in." —Lt. Norman Whalen"We were dragged through the mouth of hell."—from a Ploesti Mission debriefing reportPlanned by Winston Churchill, authorized by Dwight D. Eisenhower, and executed by five specially trained American bomber units, the attack on the oil refineries of Ploesti, Romania, was among the most daring and dangerous missions of World War II. If the raid succeeded, the Nazi war machine would suffer a devastating blow. On August 1, 1943, nearly two hundred B-24 bombers flew from Benghazi, North Africa, with directions to descend on Ploesti at treetop level, bomb the refineries, and return. The low-level bombers could evade enemy radar and were thought to be more difficult to shoot down. But despite warnings that a German heavy flak train had been moved into the area and that the secrecy of their mission had been compromised, the bombers were sent out. Minutes from the target, one of the commanders made a wrong turn, leading the formations away from Ploesti. Recovering from this mistake, most of the bombers relocated the refineries, but the mission was doomed. The ensuing air-ground battle claimed dozens of the bombers, and many of those that survived the ordeal were forced to ditch in the ocean or in remote areas due to lack of fuel or structural damage.In Into the Fire: Ploesti, The Most Fateful Mission of World War II, Duane Schultz re-creates this great battle, combining original research and interviews with survivors in order to capture the tension, drama, and heroics of the warring sides. More Medals of Honor were awarded for this mission than any other aerial combat enterprise in the history of the United States. But the medals are bittersweet testimony to the courage of the 1,726 young men who risked all on a fateful attempt to cut off the Nazi supply of "black gold.
