From #1 bestselling author and master storyteller James Patterson, and Matt Eversmann, First Sergeant, USA (Ret.), the decorated war hero immortalized in the film Black Hawk Down, come firsthand wartime experiences of the American military.
The sacrifices of service are indescribable, except by those who have made them. Their personal stories of battlefield life reveal:
– The goal to “be ready every day, every single day,”- – and how that can quickly descend into chaos. – The realization that every soldier must be “okay with dying, consciously or subconsciously, to be good at this job.”- How “we all need to serve something bigger than ourselves.”
Men and women from every branch of the US military and every occupational specialty tell exactly how it feels to jump out of airplanes, to be boots on the ground, to shoot and be shot at, and to recognize that they might never get back home. “When the fear shows up,” explains a Marine Corps rifleman, “I tell myself I can do it–I will do it. And I do.” Walk in My Combat Boots offers the honest words of our heroes, the true stories of our sons and daughters.

But from the instant they lock eyes, life becomes a sexy, romantic dream come true. That is until they start playing a strangely intense game of make-believe — a game that’s about to go too far. (James O. Born)

The Red Book
#2 of the Black Book Series by James Patterson and David Ellis

To Harney, the newest member of Chicago PD’s elite strike force Special Operations Section (SOS), getting shot in the head, stalked by a state’s attorney, and accused of murder by his fellow cops is all part of breaking a case.
So when a drive-by shooting on Chicago’s west side turns political, he leads the way to a quick solve. But Harney’s instincts — his father was once chief of detectives and his twin sister, Patti, is also on the force — run deep. As a population hungry for justice threatens to riot, he realizes that the three known victims are hardly the only ones.
When Harney starts asking questions about who’s to blame, the easy answers prove to be the wrong ones. On the flip side, the less he seems to know, the longer he can keep his clandestine investigation going … until Harney’s quest to expose the evil that’s rotting the city from the inside out takes him to the one place he vowed never to return: his own troubled past.

The 21st book in the Women’s Murder Club by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro
Lindsay vows to protect a twenty-year-old victim long enough to see her twenty-first birthday.
SFPD Sergeant Lindsay Boxer has sworn to defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic. As Lindsay prepares to celebrate her own daughter’s birthday, she clashes with rising Chief Charlie Clapper over a family case.
When a distraught mother pleads with Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas to investigate the disappearance of her daughter, Linda, and baby granddaughter, Lorrie, Cindy immediately loops in SFPD. But Linda’s schoolteacher husband, Lucas Burke, tells a conflicting story that paints Linda as a wayward wife, not a missing person. And there’s reason to believe he may be telling the truth.
While M.E. Claire Washburn harbors theories that run counter to the police investigation of the Burke case, ADA Yuki Castellano sizes Lucas up as a textbook domestic offender–until he puts forward a theory of his own that unexpectedly connects the dots on a constellation of copycat killings. If what Lucas tells law enforcement has even a grain of truth, there isn’t a woman in the state of California who’s safe from the reach of such an unspeakable threat.

All he wants is to sink into anonymity with his family (and his Secret Service detail). But when he’s briefed on an imminent threat against his daughter, Keating’s SEAL training may prove more essential than all the power, connections, and political acumen he gained as President.
