Book Seven: The Ajax Protocol 

The Project is a Black Ops intelligence unit reporting only to the President of the United States. When an assassination attempt takes the President out of commission, the Project is caught up in a conspiracy that threatens to spark a world war and runs a lot deeper than just trying to kill the leader of the free world. 

Led by Director Elizabeth Harker, the Project team discovers a cold-hearted plot to turn America into a totalitarian police state. Betrayed by powerful enemies at home and forced to rely on doubtful allies abroad, Harker and her team are driven underground. With time running out, they must stop the conspirators before they destroy everything America stands for. At the same time team leader Nick Carter and his lover, Selena Connor, struggle to commit to each other in a covert world where love and compassion are in short supply and enemies lie in wait at every turn. 

The Ajax Protocol could be taken from tomorrow's headlines. It will disturb you and keep you turning pages to the end.

Urban homesteading is a way to step into the past and live a simpler life. Luxuries will be sacrificed, but it’s also a way to live a better life from a different time. Recently, it has become a trend in the US, and many find that it is a life that provides a chance to live outside of city constraints. Urban homesteading means that you’ll have to learn food preservation methods because not every month will give you’re a chance at plentiful crops. Remaining self-sufficient as an urban homesteader isn’t easy, but it can be done. 

As far as planting is concerned, there are various urban gardens that can be used, or a combination can also be used. This book will take you through the pros and cons of using a combination or a single method of gardening, and even though it’s truly up to the discretion of the individual, this book can give you a better idea of which urban garden will suit your needs and locations. 

Urban homesteading is difficult, but the main thing to remember is that you have to be self-sufficient. This book will teach you everything that being self-sufficient truly means, and you’ll learn how to run your home and garden. There are many facets of preparing your house for urban homesteading, and that means learning how to use alternative energy sources, alternative water sources, and alternative transportation methods. You’ll also have to learn proper waste disposal.

The truth can be a dangerous thing. 

Terrorism, duty, and personal safety collide when Jake Pendleton, an investigator for the NTSB, is called to investigate an aircraft accident in Savannah, Georgia during the St. Patrick’s Day celebration. The accident, which at first appears to be quite run-of-the-mill, turns out to be anything but. Since Jake is not willing to pretend there are no suspicious circumstances and more than the usual share of rather unlikely “coincidences,” he sets off a veritable avalanche of secrets, violence and treachery. Aided by an unlikely partner, Gregg Kaplan, the air traffic controller who was the last person in contact with the airplane that crashed, Jake sets out to untangle the webs of deceit and to find a vicious killer. 

Nothing is as it seems, nobody is who you thought them to be. 
Nothing is sacred. 
Nobody is safe. 

The Savannah Project is an action packed political thriller with a twist around every corner. If you like thrillers by great authors like David Baldacci, Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and others, then you'll enjoys this book as the author incorporates his 3M formula for his novels: Murder, Mystery, & Mayhem.
