Jim Thurman never thought he'd find himself at the center of an international plot to control America's oil market. It's 1990 and the mindset of the global giant Titan Oil is that terrorism only happens overseas. Protecting its people and flagship refinery in Grainger City is the last thing to be concerned with, even though the refinery supplies the largest daily percentage of gasoline to the nation. But when a terrorist group attacks the refinery to destroy it and unleash a lethal chemical, it's up to Thurman to stop them. Thurman, former Marine and Vietnam veteran, had left police work for better pay in Titan Oil's refinery security. That was when he had a wife and son. When they died, so did his sanity. To retain what's left, he decides to leave it all behind and start a new life without the scars. He'll resign and say goodbye to the refinery, but more importantly, to his fellow veterans working in the refinery, the 'War Dogs.' His departure is delayed when a rogue black ops mercenary, Adam Murdock, attacks the refinery with a team of terrorists known as the 'Serpent and the Sword.' Their stated sympathies are with the Middle East and unless their demands are met they will destroy the refinery and release its stockpile of lethal hydrofluoric acid on the surrounding population. Yet Murdock intends to destroy the refinery regardless of the demands. That is what his employer paid him to do. The Director of the CIA knew, yet hid the attack information in hopes of elevating his agency's future power. Venezuela wants to leave OPEC and be America's primary supplier. Hiring Adam Murdock was the answer. Lay blame on the Middle East, turn America against OPEC, and Venezuela reaps the oil rewards. The Director never counted on Alexandra McCall, an agent within his agency, leaking the information to the National Security Council. With terrorists slaughtering employees and setting explosives to destroy the massive refinery, Jim Thurman realizes he must fight alone. But his blooded brothers, the War Dogs, choose to make the last stand with him-even at the cost of their lives for an ungrateful corporation... A rogue black ops agent. A ruthless terrorist group's takeover of a refinery. An intelligence agency director that knows the truth but hid the report. The global oil giant that believes everything is second to profit. A country wanting to break away from OPEC and take America's oil market with it. The potential release of a lethal chemical on a city - and one man with a handful of Vietnam veterans to make a last stand against the insanity and prevent doomsday. STEEL JUNGLE is the nightmare no one wants to consider. Reality is laid bare in this raw-nerved, fast-paced, hard-hitting thriller.

“I LOVE THE GRAY MAN.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child   “BOURNE FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM.”—New York Times bestselling author James Rollins Praise for Mission Critical “This novel is vintage Greaney, with a tight plot, a ticking clock, and a sympathetic antihero…This is good, Clancy-esque entertainment. May the evildoers of the world have nightmares that Violator becomes a real person.”— Kirkus Reviews “The latest in the Gray Man series continues to demonstrate why Greaney belongs in the upper echelon of special-ops thriller authors.”— Booklist (starred review) “Greaney knows what military action fans want and delivers in spades.”— Publishers Weekly “Mesmerizing…Equal parts revenge drama and conspiracy tale, Mission Critical combines the best of John le Carré and Robert Ludlum. Greaney has fashioned a masterpiece of an action thriller, mixed with deep-seated global politics, placing him on level footing with the likes of Brad Thor, Brad Taylor and the late, great Vince Flynn.”— Providence Journal “The latest in the Gray Man series continues to demonstrate why Greaney belongs in the upper echelon of special-ops thriller authors.”— Booklist (starred review) Praise for Agent in Place “Reminiscent of John le Carré…Exquisite in its execution, the relentlessly riveting, “Agent in Place” firmly plants Greaney alongside Brad Taylor and Brad Thor as the masters of this thriller subgenre.” —Providence Journal  “Readers of the great Tom Clancy will salivate over this fast-moving and well-plotted yarn, which is part of a consistently appealing series in which each assignment is billed as the most dangerous ever. Somehow, Greaney cranks out one winner after another. That's a lot of work for the Gray Man and plenty of vicarious pleasure for thriller fans.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Greaney’s steady escalation of the risks that Court faces, and the exceedingly clever ways he tackles them, make this entry in the exemplary Gray Man series a can’t-miss.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) Praise for Gunmetal Gray   “Fans of RPG, Hong Kong action films, and high-octane storytelling will love the Gray Man, who battles full-bore through this fast-paced series.”— The Washington Post   “A nonstop barrage of action.”— The Memphis Commercial Appeal   “Jam-packed with action and adventure. It is as modern as tomorrow’s headlines and moves with fascinating speed from country to country.”— Lincoln Journal Star    “This one is fat, fast, and fun. Clancy’s spirit lives on.”— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

By the time Phil Chase is elected president, the world's climate is far on its way to irreversible change. Food scarcity, housing shortages, diminishing medical care, and vanishing species are just some of the consequences. The erratic winter the Washington, D.C., area is experiencing is another grim reminder of a global weather pattern gone haywire: bone-chilling cold one day, balmy weather the next. But the president-elect remains optimistic and doesn't intend to give up without a fight. A maverick in every sense of the word, Chase starts organizing the most ambitious plan to save the world from disaster since FDR-and assembling a team of top scientists and advisers to implement it. For Charlie Quibler, this means reentering the political fray full-time and giving up full-time care of his young son, Joe. For Frank Vanderwal, hampered by a brain injury, it means trying to protect the woman he loves from a vengeful ex and a rogue 'black ops” agency not even the president can control-a task for which neither Frank's work at the National Science Foundation nor his study of Tibetan Buddhism can prepare him. In a world where time is running out as quickly as its natural resources, where surveillance is almost total and freedom nearly nonexistent, the forecast for the Chase administration looks darker each passing day. For as the last-and most terrible-of natural disasters looms on the horizon, it will take a miracle to stop the clock . . . the kind of miracle that only dedicated men and women can bring about.

Zombie Apocalypse

The end of the world as you know it. What are you going to do when it happens? Because it will. Yuck it up all you want to. Write the whole zombie apocalypse off to Hollywood hype. Go right ahead and keep boating down the river called Denial, Cleo. Send me a postcard when the zombies are beating down the pyramid door. You think it can't happen? Ever heard of antibiotic resistant viruses? Did you know that tales of the reanimated dead date back 4,500 years? Did you know the freaking CDC has a plan for the zombie apocalypse. (Thank God they didn't put FEMA on this thing or we would be screwed.) Admit it. You wouldn't be looking at this book if something wasn't nagging you. Global warming, threatened pandemics, contaminated water table, a rising culture of violence. Maybe you don't believe in zombies per se . . . yet . . . but you do know that people are just edgy enough already that civilization and civilized behavior are headed to hell in a handbasket as soon as disaster strikes. Two words for you: Hurricane Katrina. Okay two more, cluster and . . . You get my drift. I'm not some black ops, ninja, undead-fighting, SWAT guru. I'm just someone who plans on staying alive. And if I do die, I plan to be definitively dead, not kinda dead on the hoof. Believe or don't believe. Frankly, I could care less, but I will give you one huge tip. When the dead are roaming the streets, you'll have one major advantage they won't -- you'll still be able to think. I actually suggest you dust off your brain and start using it now. You might have a steep learning curve. This is a book for both the pre- and post-apocalypse crowd. If you're ready to get off your complacent backside and prepare for what's coming, I'll show you how to get started with an EDC (every day carry) survival kit and move through threat assessment, defensive strategies, basic weapons selection, and planning your long-term cache of supplies. If you're hunkered down clutching a filthy copy of this book in a ruined store, get the hell out of there! Take the book, go someplace safe, breathe, and let's get to work.

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. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Byrne. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/boli/000822/bk_boli_000822_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

In this follow-up to the highly successful Kill Zone, former Marine sniper Kyle Swanson faces his most deadly enemy yet, a legendary enemy sniper working with a fringe Islamic organization that has created a terrifying new weapon of mass destruction. In Baghdad's Green Zone, an Iraqi scientist is murdered just before he is to reveal the monstrous secret that Saddam Hussein took to his grave: the Palace of Death, home to a chemical weapon that Islamic militants quietly have been developing and whose formula is nearly complete. The assassination is the work of a mysterious sniper called Juba, who was originally trained by the British but now works with a twisted mastermind determined to wrest leadership of the terrorist world from Al Qaeda. Kyle Swanson, once the top sniper in the Marine Corps, has become the key member in a secret special operations team known as Task Force Trident. When Juba tests the new weapon by killing hundreds of people at a British royal wedding in London, Swanson is assigned to hunt down his old special ops rival. The birth of a new reign of global terror can be stopped only by a confrontation between the two best snipers in the world, a duel in which the first shot wins. Usually. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Sowers. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/aren/000912/bk_aren_000912_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

In Who the Hell Wants to Work for You? Mastering Employee Engagement, Tim Eisenhauer explains and unifies the groundbreaking employee engagement practices of America's most admired companies. It shows the role of individuals, managers, and executives in building a new kind of workplace. And it uses the collective experience of hundreds of employers through research and case examples to help you-the manager-transform your mind, your team, and your business. Everyone's talking about it, but it's as bad as it's ever been. Employee engagement has been linked to every positive business outcome: innovation, productivity, employee and customer loyalty, even stock performance. Yet workplace cynicism is so widespread that we think of it as normal. The employee engagement conversation has gone off track. Will measuring, tracking and decoding employee sentiment solve the problem? Let's see… Instead of talking to employees, we're talking about them and second-guessing their sentiments. This is not a good plan. Meanwhile, some employers have succeeded spectacularly. They get different results because they focus on: individuals, relationships, and culture. Let's talk about making all the right things come naturally. How do break-away companies reset their defaults that put inertia on their side? They've started a trend that is massive, global and irreversible. Not only do people mentally disengage from companies and bosses that don't get them, they leave in search of those that do. This is a trend you can count on … And, like any trend, you can use it to your advantage. __________ Part 1: The Individual Select, train, and motivate people to do their best work. Part 2: The Relationship Build engagement while managing direct reports. Part 3: The Culture Give executive leadership the power to create and sustain an engaged workforce. __________ "A complete reality check on employee engagement. It's an addicting read." ~ Jessica Mehring - CEO, Horizon Peak Consulting "Required reading for managers, executives, and business owners." ~ Chuck Vigeant - CEO, Clearify "Thought provoking. It's a fun read." ~ Karen L. Morkholt - HR Manager & Legal Advisor "Absolutely fantastic, easy to read, and loaded with practical information." ~ Alan Collins - Best Selling Author and Former VP of HR at Pepsi "How to get your employees to bring their A-Game to work." ~ Sammy Tovar - Former Ops Manager, Mail Boxes Etc. "The best employee engagement advice available online." ~ Sue Chacon - Arizona State University "Insightful. 100% useful." Highly recommended for manager to read." ~ John Fike - President and CEO, Lifeforce Nutraceuticals
