Summary:

Blood on the Risers is a song paratroopers sing about a comrade who is killed when his parachute does not open properly, risers being the shroud lines running from the harness up to the canopy. The song is gory, and usually sung over many drinks. In this novel, Phillip Dee, a young lieutenant reporting to an airborne unit in Germany on the eve of the Vietnam War, is shocked to see four troopers plummet to earth with their canopies tangled, their bodies crushed as they hit the ground. Dee is even more shocked when the officer who is guiding him to his unit urges him to join in singing the song after seeing the four hit the earth, leading Dee to wonder what kind of madhouse he has been assigned to--which is what this compelling new novel is all about.

Summary:

This artfully crafted saga depicts in vivid detail, the arduous journey of a young, impressionable patriot yearning to fulfill his destiny in the turmoil of the 1960's. The author draws you close to him as he encounters stiff challenges to his basic values, his character, as well as his faith in his fellow man. You'll taste the bitter prop blast as you stand in the open door beside him, holding your breath while he soars through the icy sky to the mountainous drop zone below. Discover the true nature of this Nation's most valiant fighting men as he progressively learns what it takes to lead Green Berets into battle. Share the distinct smell of death while he clutches on to the remnants of his tattered soul, constantly violated while he processes the tragedy of life unfolding before him. Witness the sheer resolve he and his men display in their commitment to their country, despite the disrespect and utter contempt shown to them by their own countrymen. This factual rendering allows you to eavesdrop on the innermost workings of a Special Forces A-Team as they train and ultimately prepare for battle. You'll be sprinting with a SOG Recon Team as they desperately work to elude the hordes of NVA soldiers, feeling the impact of explosions and the crackling of rifle fire along the way. This read will provide you with a renewed appreciation of what men endure when they make the commitment to defend their country and their way of life; despite the intimate danger and life-long consequences that accompany that decision. With dialogue that keeps the pages turning, Michael O'Shea transports us directly back to the real American experience in Vietnam. It's been nearly fifty years since the US inserted troops into jungles and villages more than 8,000 miles away. Stories such as Blood on the Risers are important and necessary for today's readers and future generations; veterans like O'Shea are prized for sharing them. Chris Henning - Clarion Review

Summary:

Northern England in the 1980's is a harsh place for research scientist Fabio De Sousa. He receives an unsolicited message on CSNet, an early email predecessor for academics. Intrigued and flattered, De Sousa begins a flirtatious online relationship. De Sousa and fellow researcher Miguel Gouveia supplement their meagre grants by toiling in the precarious pre-dawn world of the meat industry. De Sousa's online relationship develops, but his friendship with Gouveia becomes threatened by the involvement of Sigma Tau. This clandestine research organisation is hell-bent on obtaining De Sousa's prized research journal. De Sousa is stunned. Not only by the revelations made by his CSNet admirer, but by their true identity. He uses a labyrinthine cipher to preserve the integrity of the research; hoping mentor Dr Eric Geller alone will crack his code. De Sousa and Geller must keep the research details from Sigma-Tau. If they're successful, they guarantee the future of human society. Failure is inconceivable.

Summary:

In El Salvador, a young American faces his troubled past—and a dangerous present Jude McManus has landed on his feet. Following time in the army, he scored work as an “executive protection specialist” in El Salvador, where he safeguards a hydrologist for good money and gets to surf during his downtime. But this slice of paradise comes with post-civil-war dangers, and distance won’t erase his cruel memories of Chicago. Ten years earlier, his cop father was outed as part of the Laugh Masters, a group of police officers investigated for robbing and brutally beating drug dealers. In the wake of the scandal, the family fell apart, and his father died under suspicious circumstances. When McManus gets a call from Bill Malvasio—one of his dad’s closest friends and an escaped member of the Laugh Masters, now living in El Salvador—the past comes knocking in a big way. Malvasio opens up about what really happened, and seeks help for another member of McManus’s father’s old crew. Is the disgraced ex-cop being straight with McManus? Hidden corruption abounds, and it will take all of McManus’s wits to come away with the truth—and his life—intact.
