The Shattered Blue Line

the-shattered-blue-line Major Nathan Malone figured his DWI charge was about to get him fired from the Office of Special Investigations.

Air Force investigator Martin Collins is used to bucking the system in the name of justice. But when he is called on to investigate the torture-style slaying of Major Franklin Talbot, Collins is embroiled in the most controversial case of his career.

And when he finally uncovers the devastating truth, Martin will be forced to make a fateful decision between catching a sadistic murderer -- and destroying the lives of countless innocent men.

What initially appears to be an accidental death turns out to be a near-perfect murder -- and three members of the Joint Chiefs are the prime suspects.

As Martin weaves his way through a puzzling maze of blood and deceit, he finds himself in the firing line of Garber's enemies, including a half-mad rival general who collects the ears of the men he's killed, and the ruthless female secretary of defense, whose hatred for Garber knows no bounds. With his life and the honor of the military at stake, Martin has only twenty-four hours to uncover a legacy of secrets that no one wants brought to light -- secrets that the most powerful forces in Washington will kill to keep buried....

After being unfairly denied promotion by a vindictive general, Air Force investigator Major Burton Webber resigned his commission in disgust. While working in his wife's shop outside South Korea's Osan Air Base, he's asked for help by an old friend from the service. A local Amerasian bar beauty has been savagely murdered in a lavish apartment -- and the powers that be want the case solved quickly and quietly.

But when his investigation points him toward the upper echelons of both the Korean and American governments, he realizes that he's being used as a pawn in a twisted international conspiracy of money, power, and murder -- a conspiracy in which Burton Webber has just outlived his usefulness....

The Colonel

the-colonel

A former Air Force investigator comes out of retirement to find a killer, only to discover a massive government cover-up.

With just two previous novels to his credit, Patrick A. Davis has become known for edge-of-your-seat military fiction. Of his first novel, The General, the Houston Chronicle proclaimed, "Davis scored a hit." And Publishers Weekly agreed that his "adrenaline-charged" second novel, The Passenger, firmly established him as "a writer with a knack for white-knuckled suspense." In The Colonel, Davis creates a new hero caught in the midst of the case of his life.

At first, there seems to be no motive for the murders. But as Collins digs through an increasingly puzzling maze of clues, he reveals a secret that leads to the highest levels of the government-and the military. Buried files reveal a link between Colonel Wildman and a series of fatal airline crashes; political pressure to keep a secret grows, as does the body count. Collins finds his own life jeopardized as he closes in on the truth, culminating in a shocking confrontation on the floors of Congress.

The Passenger

A military Learjet crashes, and Washington insiders scramble to cover their tracks, in an exciting new military thriller from the author of The General.

Colonel John Quinn was a young, ambitious Air Force pilot who loved to fly--until an Iraqi missile nearly ended his career and his life. Three surgeries and four years later, Quinn is functional, but not good enough to fly. Assigned to the Pentagon, he's prepared to spend the rest of his career in a series of boring staff jobs. Then a military Learjet crashes shortly after takeoff in the rural farmlands outside Washington, and Quinn is called to lead the biggest investigation of his life.

With this crash, there are no survivors--a fact that is particularly sensitive in the White House, as the jet carried just one passenger: the President's brother. The crash scene offers little in the way of clues, and while the White House is pushing pilot error as the cause of the accident, Quinn is uncertain. Too many Washington insiders, including Quinn's former wife, a Ph.D. with the National Transportation Safety Board, seem to have a stake in the outcome of his investigation. Too many dodge the hard questions--or turn up dead. Filled with great characters and told with pulsing narrative drive, The Passenger is further proof that, as W. E. B. Griffin says,

"Patrick Davis creates the kind of sharp, crackling dialogue that keeps the reader nodding in recognition while turning the pages furiously." --Nelson DeMille --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
