FIFTY-FIFTY O’BRIEN

Winchester Smith is a crack shot. Problem

is, his talent is going to waste, knocking

down ducks in a shooting gallery. Win

wants some real action, and like Gary

Cooper as

Sergeant York

, he’s going

to war, joining the US Marines to fight

in Central America. But serving as a

messenger, he has little chance to put his

rifle to use. When he does, he ends up

facing a disciplinary hearing for disobeying

orders. In order to redeem himself, Win will

have to deliver a message that the Marines

will never forget. Includes:

“The Adventure

of ‘X’”

and

“Red Sand”

THE GREEN GOD

Private detective Sam Spade nearly

died chasing

The Maltese Falcon

. But

what Spade faced in pursuit of the

black bird was child’s play compared

to what Lieutenant Bill Mahone of Naval

Intelligence endures in China when

he sets out to find

The Green God

.

Mahone’s convinced he knows who stole

the sacred idol and he’s determined to

get it back. But he’s walking a razor’s

edge—between worship and warfare,

between a touch of heaven and a taste

of bloody hell. Includes:

“Five Mex for

a Million”

THE FALCON KILLER

The Chinese city of Nencheng is in flames,

and now the Japanese have set their

sights on an oil-rich kingdom. China’s

only hope falls from the sky—their ace

fighter pilot, American Bill Gaylord. Like

William Holden, he’s the guy every man

wants to be and every woman wants to

be with. He parachutes into the arms of

the one woman who gives him reason to

live—and rejoin the fight against Japan.

His prey is in sight, and catching it will

change everything for the “Falcon Killer”

.

THE LIEUTENANT

TAKES THE SKY

American pilot Mike Malloy has been

unjustly sentenced to five years in a

Moroccan penal battalion—which is French

for

death sentence

. But Malloy, who could

easily pass for Douglas Fairbanks, is about

to get a reprieve... if he’s willing to fly into

the heart of the Sahara and into the teeth

of a Berber rebellion. The expedition

could have unexpected benefits. One of

his passengers is a young woman whose

eyes are as beautiful and blue as the wild

blue yonder....

HOSTAGE TO DEATH

For Lieutenant Bill Reilly—who, like

Peter O’Toole in

Lawrence of Arabia

,

is a westerner at war in the desert—the

dream of joining the Foreign Legion has

turned into a nightmare. It all starts with

a severed hand. In it is a message from a

Berber chief: Save the American woman

he holds captive or she’s next up for

dismemberment. But it’s a trick, leading

to a terrorist attack. But who set the trap?

Caught in a triangle of treachery between

the French, Spanish and native Berbers,

Reilly’s only hope is to uncover the truth

in a desert of deception.

L. RON HUBBARD:

IN THE MILITARY

L

ieutenant L. Ron Hubbard fought with

distinction in three theaters in the Second

World War.

This after having already served,

as a younger man, with the 163rd Regiment of the

Montana State National Guard and as a First Sergeant

with the 20th United States Marine Corps Reserve.

Hubbard’s familiarity with the Marines,

“I’ve known

the Corps from Quantico to Peiping, from the South

Pacific to the West Indies,”

reflects in the authenticity

of his tales.

ON BLAZING WINGS

American fighter pilot David Duane

believes in but one cause—his own.

Just as Bogart came to Casablanca to

escape his past, Duane has come to

the icy white wastes of Scandinavia to

wage a private war in the skies. Heading

off to war in Europe, he sells his deadly

skills to the highest bidder. But now

he’s about to take off on a flight that will

open his eyes—and his heart. Because

sometimes you have to make a choice,

and for Duane, making the wrong one

could cost him the woman he loves....

RED DEATH OVER CHINA

American pilot John Hampton—with

no allegiance to anything but money,

hires himself out as a pilot in China’s

civil war. Losing his gunner in a

dogfight changes his attitude, and so

does rescuing a captain who tells him a

tale of the Red Pagoda. His newfound

perspective will strangely determine

the course of a decisive battle set to

unfold. Includes:

“The Crate Killer”

and

“Wings Over Ethiopia”

ORDERS IS ORDERS

The Chinese city of Shunkien is under

siege by the Japanese. In the middle sits

the United States Consulate, packed

with refugees, facing starvation and

cholera. Marine Gunnery Sergeant

James Mitchell—as tough as Tom

Hanks in

Saving Private Ryan

—is their

only hope. But he’ll have to negotiate

200 miles of bullets, bombs and one

bombshell dancer to get there. And then

his greatest enemy of all: alcohol. If he

gives in to temptation, it’s America that

will pay the price.

THE PHANTOM PATROL

Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Johnny

Trescott is as tough as they come. But

he’s about to lose everything—his boat,

his freedom, and his identity. Long

before Tom Hanks as Captain Phillips

fell into the hands of modern-day

pirates, Johnny faced the same high-

stakes action on the high seas. Johnny’s

mission is to track down drug runners,

but a rescue mission leads straight to

disaster. Stranded on an island by a

smuggler, Johnny’s got nothing left to

lose... and there’s nothing he won’t do

to reclaim his name and his boat.

TRICK SOLDIER

Lieutenant Flint is hard-edged andmuscle-

bound, radiating machismo. Captain

Turner is a “trick soldier

—smart and

at attention. They’re polar opposites—

like Sean Penn and Michael J. Fox in

Casualties of War

. They didn’t get along in

boot camp, and ten years later nothing has

changed. But now is the time for heroes to

rise and cowards to fall. And when brute

strength confronts military honor, the true

measure of a man is not in his fists, but in

his heart. Includes:

“He Walked to War”

and

“Machine Gun 21,000”

HELL’S LEGIONNAIRE

American Ann Halliday is as sexy as Rita

Hayworth and as fiery as the Sahara

sun. And now she’s feeling some real

heat, as the prize captive of the Berber

known as

The Killer

.”

But Dusty Colton,

an American deserter from the French

Foreign Legion, has all the swagger of

Robert Mitchum— and he has a different

idea. Can they team up and turn evil on

its head? One thing’s for sure—between

Ann and the “Hell’s Legionnaire”

,

the

temperature is about to get even hotter.

Includes:

“The Barbarians”

and

“The

Squad That Never Came Back”
