Releases are Chasing Sunrise by P.S. Wells and Prodigal Avenger: A Story of the Secret War in Afghanistan by Tim Moynihan


A Covert Rescue Mission No One Expects to Succeed–Who will survive?

Special operator and “nice Jewish kid from Hawaii,” Jake “Snake” Drecker, is intent on a mission across borders to eliminate a brutal terrorist cell. That they may or may not also be holding an American missionary hostage is unclear. The intelligence is sketchy, the objectives vague, and the chance of success slim.

Jake’s boss and old friend, Lieutenant Colonel Mike “Pancho” Sanchez, wonders at the mysterious motivation behind his best soldier’s decisions–and about an equally mysterious rogue military unit that shows up at the worst moments to insert itself into their operations. That the CIA seems willing to sacrifice both Drecker’s team and the hostage only adds to the mystery, forcing Pancho to dig deep to discover the truth behind the missionary’s past.

And time is running out as Drecker drags his team on a quixotic rescue operation into the very belly of the beast–a mission Drecker and Pancho both know they cannot survive unscathed.

Chasing Sunrise explores betrayal, friendship, integrity, and the life-changing gifts of love and hope.–Richard Paul Evans, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

“I quit.”Michael Northington tossed his special forces insignia across his commander’s desk. He wore the uniform to protect lives, but when an assignment kills a friend, he leaves behind the military world to seek solace on St. Croix.

Haunted by guilt and his friend’s unsolved murder, Michael teaches scuba to tourists and acquires a taste for classical music. Until his battle buddies arrive on his island paradise.

Elise Eisler felt like a song out of tune since her parents died. Desperate to keep her parents’ musical legacy alive, and striving to restore the island’s atmospheric theater, the artist has little interest in the mysterious stranger who moved into the cottage.

Coaxed back into the field, Michael pursues tangled political connections in search of the killer. When deadly internationals and the black market blow onto his tropical home at the same time Hurricane Hugo unleashes its fury, are Michael’s skills enough to protect those he cares about?

Told with a custom blend of fast-paced action, tropic landscapes, and lush detail, Chasing Sunrise is an unforgettable adventure and a piece of paradise you’ll want to take with you.

“Opposite worlds, opposing ideals, and conflicting desires, Chasing Sunrise is action-packed adventure.”–Bill Myers

“A fascinating story supported by wonderful storytelling and a well-woven plot line, Chasing Sunrise is a tale that will keep you turning pages.”–Ace Collins
