Walk in My Combat Boots: True Stories from America’s Bravest Warriors

February 8thJames Patterson's New Releases 2021-Walk In My Combat Boots

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)
Stingrays: When a teenager goes missing on a Caribbean beach, the local police are baffled. It’s up to the Stingrays, a world-class team that solves the unsolvable, to unearth the truth: a truth that no one will believe. (with Duane Swierczynski)

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

For Detective Billy Harney, the distance from hero to statistic is one false move.

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.

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.

Lindsay vows to protect a twenty-year-old victim long enough to see her twenty-first birthday.

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.

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.

    Thank you so much for this excellent collection of stories, Tracy! I love to read, and I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve never read any of James Patterson’s books (though I am familiar with who he is). I’ve always been intrigued by crime books and shows (mainly because I want to see justice served), and you have given me more than enough material to work with for the next several months (even years)! Great read! God bless you!

      It’s my pleasure. Thanks for visiting and leaving such a thoughtful comment. With all of the different genres that James Patterson writes, there is truly something for someone to enjoy. : ) I’m a big fan of true crime books and shows as well for pretty much the same reason. Let me know if you find and read something from J.P. I’d love to hear your thoughts. Happy Reading!
