"Kevin Hurley continues his march to the top tier of thriller writers with Le Tour Finale. This complex, international political thriller rekindles memories of Frederick Forsyth and Len Deighton at their level best with a hefty measure of Robert Ludlum mixed in for good measure and featuring one of the most unique backdrops ever in the genre. Le Tour Finale is a tour de force of riveting and roiling reading entertainment." Jon Land, USA Today bestselling author of Strong Light of Day "An insightful view of Paris' No Go Zone's wrapped in a pulse pounding thriller. Michael Byars Lewis, retired USAF Special Operations Pilot and Award-winning author of SURLY BONDS Le Tour Finale is a taut yet intricate thriller set in France during the famous Tour de France bicycle race and its aftermath. The story juggles essentially two protagonists: John Rexford, a former marine and covert assassin, and Alex Pena, an American policeman turned bodyguard. The US government recruits Rexford, a conditioned cyclist and assassin, to join the Tour as part of a team whose successful mission will bring an end to the current French government plot to form a military and economic partnership with Russia and render the European Union and NATO obsolete. The task quickly changes when the mission is exposed. Now Rexford and Pena must escape a country that is under military lockdown, but first rescue what is left of their team from the notorious high security prison of La Sante. The future of the European Union and NATO hang in the balance as the two men weave their way through prisons, French police, and an underground French Resistance that is not what they seem. "Cut and Cover" documents Kevin Hurley as a master of the suspense thriller genre. Jack Mason, Midwest Book Review Praise for Kevin Hurley's Cut and Cover: "Hurley's prose style is tight and straightforward yet filled with colorful details that show his understanding of international intrigue." Barbara Ballinger, Hudson Valley Magazine "Terrorists attacks are cliche in lesser hands but in Hurley's, they are every bit the equal of Nelson DeMille." The Providence Journal "A high-stakes espionage novel transcending genre, blending multilayered philosophical meditations on violence, machismo, 21st-century living, and the things we do for love into a rip-roaring, nutritious page-turner. Anne Pyburn Craig-Chronogram Magazine Double the trouble, twice the action, and quadruple the enjoyment, you gotta read this one"-Steve Berry, New York Times and #1 Internationally Bestselling Author of The Lincoln Myth and The Patriot Threat"

For five years, he flew the supersonic jet and was considered one of the best instructors on the base. After a terrifying jet crash, Jason finds himself on a very short list of people on their way out the door. It was a surprise to everyone when he is assigned to the home of the U.S. Air Force Flight Test Center.

As casualties pile up, it becomes clear Alex is the final target in someone's blood-soaked attempts to cover their tracks.

In White House Ghosts, veteran Washington reporter Robert Schlesinger opens a fresh and revealing window on the modern presidency from FDR to George W. Bush. This is the first book to examine a crucial and often hidden role played by the men and women who help presidents find the words they hope will define their places in history. Drawing on scores of interviews with White House scribes and on extensive archival research, Schlesinger weaves intimate, amusing, compelling stories that provide surprising insights into the personalities, quirks, egos, ambitions, and humor of these presidents as well as how well or not they understood the bully pulpit. White House Ghosts traces the evolution of the presidential speechwriter's job from Raymond Moley under FDR through such luminaries as Ted Sorensen and Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., under JFK, Jack Valenti and Richard Goodwin under LBJ, William Safire and Pat Buchanan under Nixon, Hendrik Hertzberg and James Fallows under Carter, and Peggy Noonan under Reagan, to the "Troika" of Michael Gerson, John McConnell, and Matthew Scully under George W. Bush. White House Ghosts tells the fascinating inside stories behind some of the most iconic presidential phrases: the first inaugural of FDR ("the only thing we have to fear is fear itself ") and JFK ("ask not what your country can do for you -- ask what you can do for your country"), Richard Nixon's "I am not a crook" and Ronald Reagan's "tear down this wall" speeches, Bill Clinton's ending "the era of big government" State of the Union, and George W. Bush's post-9/11 declaration that "whether we bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done" -- and dozens of other noteworthy speeches. The book also addresses crucial questions surrounding the complex relationship between speechwriter and speechgiver, such as who actually crafted the most memorable phrases, who deserves credit for them, and who has claimed it. Schlesinger tells the story of the modern American presidency through this unique prism -- how our chief executives developed their very different rhetorical styles and how well they grasped the rewards of reaching out to the country. White House Ghosts is dramatic, funny, gripping, surprising, serious -- and always entertaining.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Gemma Halliday, whose books have been downloaded over a million times, comes a novel with the physiological thrill of Gone Girl and the suspenseful twists of Big Little Lies... She faked her death to escape life in a war torn country. But now her enemies have tracked her down, and this time they want her to stay dead. Anya Danielovich lives with the guilt of what she had to do to survive when her native country divided against itself. But that was a long time ago. Today she’s become Anna Smith, a single, thirtysomething woman living in San Francisco with a simple desire to lead a better life. Even if she is still haunted by her past—the enemies she made, the mentor she betrayed, the woman she was. She’s taken care to cover her tracks over the years, but she’s beginning to feel like she’s being watched… Nick Dade is a hired gunman, the best of the best. He’s read Anya’s file, knows the unspeakable acts she committed, and after weeks of surveillance, he’s ready to pull the trigger on his latest target. That is until someone else beats him to the punch. With his agenda shattered, Dade is suddenly thrown together with the woman he’s been sent to eliminate. Who is she really? Who hired the second hit? And who can he trust? What critics are saying: "Exciting first in a thriller series replete with hit men, high-speed chases, and international crime." —Publishers Weekly "Starts with a bang and doesn’t let up. The action is gripping and the characters are compelling. Four stars!" —RT Book Review "Halliday combines investigation with the inevitable romance for a mystery that’s enjoyably 'by the book.'" —Kirkus Review Note: This is a second edition rerelease of a work previously title "Play Nice."
