It Was Supposed To Be a Break from War Zones…
But Now It’s a New War, Against Enemies Foreign…
Chris Grant had taken the close protection gig for a finance guy in the States as a break from the last two decades in war zones around the world. When a coordinated attempt is made on the client’s life, however, he finds that this job isn’t as simple as it seemed.
Things only get more complicated from there.
The Pallas Group Solutions contractors haven’t been selected because they’ll sit on their hands. As they begin to gather more intelligence, and as the bodies stack up, they discover that there’s more to both the client and their own company than met the eye.
They’ve plunged into a world of drugs, corruption, foreign influence, and terrorism.
And a secret war that they have no choice but to fight.
While my previous thriller series, American Praetorians and Maelstrom Rising have been about possible near-future conflicts (though American Praetorians was near-term enough that it overlapped with a few current events at the time), this series is a little different. As I explain in the author’s note at the end of Gray War, some of this stuff is happening right now. It’s “non-martial warfare” as described in the 1999 white paper Unrestricted Warfare.
So, this is a slightly more kinetic, fictional version of a war that is being waged on some level against the United States as we speak.
That’s not all that’s different about this series, though.
As I explained the other day, for those who missed it, I’m not being allowed to advertise this book on Amazon Marketing Solutions. The AMS staff doesn’t like the “violence” depicted on the cover, and considers it “threatening.” The search results issue that I encountered seems to have resolved itself, but the marketing issue remains. So, then, since I’m not willing to change the cover to accommodate their political biases, I’m going to be entirely dependent on organic reach to get this book out there and make it successful. If you have enjoyed my work in the past, then, please pick this book up–this week, if you can manage it–read it, review it, and tell your friends about it.
There’s only so much that we can rely on systems that we don’t own. Amazon’s ecosystem has been immensely useful for independent authors like me, but it doesn’t necessarily exist for independent authors like me. I’d rather rely on you, the readers, anyway. So, thank you, in advance.
