Seals the Warrior Breed: Casualties of War by H. Jay Riker for $2.99

Product Description
The Snake in the Desert

The first generation of SEALs was forged in the steaming jungles of Vietnam, their deadly skills honed by combat. But jealousy brewing within the U.S. military bureaucracy threatened the future of the warrior elite, and shortsighted thinking forced them into pitched battles in Grenada and Panama that the SEALs shouldn't have fought and couldn't have won. Now the opportunity has finally come for redemption when the tanks of a ruthless Middle Eastern despot roll across the unprotected borders of a neighboring nation. Here, in a world of blood and oil, a new generation of SEALs is going in first to fight a new kind of war on its terms -- as Hunter–Killer teams of America's deadliest commandos plunge into a fast and murderous game of hide-seek-and-strike on Iraqi sands.
The Home Team: Undeclared War by Dennis Chalker for $2.99

Product Description

A combination of Vince Flynn and Richard Marcinko, The Home Team series features a group of former Special Forces operators who have become the most lethal weapon in the war on terror––a war that is now fought on our own soil.

The story of one soldier pushed too far. When a scandal and cover–up within the service ended his career as a Navy SEAL, Ted 'Grim' Reaper returned to his home. But when drug dealing terrorists intrude on his early retirement and threaten his family, he bands together with a group of special forces operators to show the dealers the true meaning of retribution. Skilled in all forms of combat, weapons, explosives, special equipment, and tactics, the group of soldiers is unchecked by any government agency, unsupervised by any congressional committee, and fully prepared to do what must be done to win their own private war at any cost.

Product Description

The second instalment of the Home Team series, a combination of Vince Flynn and Richard Marcinko. A select group of former Special Forces operators takes up arms against a Mexican cartel that's moved beyond drugs and diamonds to radioactive isotope smuggling.

Ex–Navy SEAL Ted Reaper packed his bags for Arizona, hoping to visit a good friend and catch up on some much–needed relaxation. But there is no rest for the weary when Reaper uncovers ties to a drug smuggling operation with ties to the Mexican military. As Reaper digs deeper, he discovers that his enemies to the south may be plotting to smuggle something even more dangerous than drugs across the border––terrorists armed with a dirty bomb.

Reaper tried to do things the right way, the legal way, by alerting the proper government officials and letting them deal with the crisis. But the military problem has a political component no one wants to dirty their hands with, and Reaper is asked if he can take the point in the American response. It won't be easy, it won't be official, it won't even be legal, but if the United States is going to be able to stop a threat south of the border, they are going to need to trust Ted "Grim" Reaper to recruit some Spec Ops buddies and win another one for the Home Team.

The third instalment of the HOME TEAM series, a combination of Vince Flynn and Richard Marcinko. Ex–Navy SEAL Ted Reaper and his expert team must rush to stop terrorists from launching weapons of mass destruction at the next space shuttle launch in Florida.

Ex–Navy SEAL Ted "Grim" Reaper has faced down enemies all over the world––and true to his name, when he shows his face, for the enemy, death is never far behind. But now he and his trusty group have turned their sights on protecting America within their own borders––the Home Team is ready and willing to take on any threats that evil, scheming terrorists can dream up.

Now an old Soviet partisan has resufaced, and while he may be without a homeland, he's not without the secrets of some of the deadliest biological weapons ever created––secrets he's willing to sell to the highest bidder, allowing terrorists to wreak unprecedented damage on American soil. And worse yet, once the terrorists strike their horrific bargain and obtain the weapons, they plan to target the U.S. when it's most vulnerable––during a shuttle launch in Florida, while the whole world is watching. Repear and his sturdy crew have never come up against a challenge like this before––a challenge with so much at stake––but if they don't stop this horrific plan, the sights of 9/11 will be a faint memory, as America, and the world, reel from this catastrophic attack played out in front of every television viewer worldwide.
