Battlefield:The Covenant Gwendolyn Casey
In the world of espionage and terrorism, nothing is ever quite what you expect. It´s always worse. Beck Casey, the college-professor-cum-spy protagonist of the best-selling Final Epidemic, returns, now to confront the very real nightmare that that haunts every national-security expert today: nuclear terrorism in the American homeland. Joining him in Fire of the Prophet is a cast of faces both new and familiar: Jeffrey Connor, a rising star at the FBI´s Counter-Terror Division; a natural leader despite his youth, he´s tasked to lead a desperate hunt for an elusive ´´blue-eyed terrorist.´´ Katie Casey, Beck´s daughter and an ambitious D.C. lawyer; she is fiercely loyal, romantically - and unexpectedly - linked with Connor... and trapped both in a doomed city and in a hackles-raising relationship between father and lover. Fatma Huntsman, the daughter of a Palestinian activist and an American woman, now radicalized as a terrorist and armed with a nuclear device in a mission against her fellow American citizens. Dennis Littrell, a self-described ´´overly seasoned´´ veteran news journalist, looking for professional redemption through one last story - a story that might save his nation and the world from a devastating global conflict...or could plunge it irrevocably into one. In suspense-filled progression, Fire of the Prophet builds from an opening set along the U.S.-Mexican border through the battlefields of the Middle East, and ultimately takes the listener to a looming Armageddon... in the capital of the United States. 1.

They were four exceptional soldiers, a new generation asked to save an army that had been hollowed out after Vietnam. They survived the military´s winnowing to reach its top echelon. They became the Army´s most influential generals in the crucible of Iraq. Collectively, their lives tell the story of the Army over the last four decades and illuminate the path it must travel to protect the nation over the next century. In The Fourth Star, you´ll follow: Gen. John Abizaid, one of the Army´s most brilliant minds.

He was determined not to repeat the mistakes of Vietnam but would take much of the blame as Iraq collapsed around him. Gen. Peter Chiarelli, an emotional, take-charge leader who, more than any other senior officer, felt the sting of the Army´s failures in Iraq. He drove his soldiers, the chain of command, and the U.S. government to rethink the occupation plans - yet rarely achieved the results he sought. Gen. David Petraeus, a driven soldier-scholar. Determined to reach the Army´s summit almost since the day he entered West Point, he sometimes alienated peers with his ambition and competitiveness. When he finally got his chance in Iraq, he - more than anyone - changed the Army´s conception of what was possible.Masterfully written and richly reported, The Fourth Star ranges far beyond today´s battlefields, evoking the Army´s tumultuous history since Vietnam through these four captivating lives and ultimately revealing a fascinating irony: In an institution that prizes obedience, the most eff... 1.
