What happens to the elite, close-knit soldiers of Australia's Special Air Service (SAS) Regiment after they leave the Who Dares Wins world of special forces? For some, there are highly paid jobs in the world's war zones and trouble spots, protecting global corporations from terrorism, sabotage, and violence. Others become powerful government advisers; many join foreign armies to train their special forces and expand the global brotherhood. Most risky of all, is the shadowy world of deniable 'black ops'. Guarding a deadly secret military cargo - a new missile system brokered through a spook under the guise of a Middle Eastern arms dealer - is all in a day's work. These are the risky yet vital jobs that governments will never admit. From Iraq and Afghanistan to Africa and Asia, award-winning defence writer Ian McPhedran uncovers a virtually unknown network and tells how Australia's top soldiers are forever linked in a seemingly borderless world. 1.

A breakneck, edge-of-your-seat thriller that moves from a resurgent Russian threat in the Aleutian Islands to North Korean spy ships to secret Sudanese prisons as former marines Logan West and John Quick, now members of an FBI special task force, uncover a global conspiracy that threatens America's position in the current international balance of power. Logan West and John Quick are sent to Dutch Harbor, Alaska, to investigate the possible presence of a Russian black ops team on a mission to steal United States next-generation technology. The resulting violent confrontation triggers a global search for the stolen technology and threatens to pit the US against China in a looming shadow war and technology race. As Logan and John - joined by the chief of the CIA's Special Operations Group, Cole Matthews - battle their way through Spain and the Mediterranean and ultimately across Sudan, an imminent threat arises at home that FBI deputy director Mike Benson must face and determine if it is part of the deadly global conspiracy. Oath of Honor is an intense and gripping follow-up to former marine Matthew Betley's "brilliantly conceived" (Clive Cussler) Overwatch and solidifies his place among the greatest contemporary thriller writers. 1.
