The Red Cobra Book Excerpt:

From the author of the Enemy series: James Ryker thought he'd gotten away from the chaos and violence of espionage. He couldn't have been more wrong . . . Carl Logan dedicated nearly twenty years to the Joint Intelligence Agency. Now living in a secret location, under the new identify of James Ryker, he wants nothing more than to be left alone to start a new life away from chaos, violence, destruction and deceit. It's not long, however, before Ryker's short-lived idyll is destroyed when he's tracked down by Peter Winter, his ex-boss at the JIA. Winter brings news of the murder of a woman in Spain, Kim Walker, whose fingerprints match those of one of Ryker's former adversaries who's been missing presumed dead for years--an infamous female assassin known as the Red Cobra. A cyber attack at the JIA led to the Red Cobra's profile being compromised, and Winter believes JIA agents may now be at risk too, Ryker included. But Ryker knew the elusive Red Cobra better than anyone, and when he sees the grisly pictures of Kim Walker's corpse, he has news for Winter--she isn't the assassin at all . . . So just who is the mystery dead woman? And where is the real Red Cobra? The Red Cobra is a fast-paced thriller filled with twists, turns, and intrigue from the bestselling author of the highly acclaimed Enemy series of espionage thrillers featuring Carl Logan, among other gripping novels. Praise for the bestselling novels of Rob Sinclair: "This is a real page-turner, impossible to put down." --Publishers Weekly

US Army AH 1 Cobra Units in Vietnam Book Excerpt:

Bell's AH-1 Cobra was the first dedicated helicopter gunship to reach frontline service anywhere in the world. Developed as a private venture by the manufacturer, and based on the mechanics of the ubiquitous UH-1 Huey, the Cobra proved a huge success once introduced into combat with the US Army in 1966. Built as a key weapon in the Advanced Aerial Fire Support System concept of 1965, the AH-1 was one of the few aircraft to reach the combat zone after actual combat experience went into its design. The AH-1 helped reduce the losses being suffered by vulnerable troop transport helicopters by providing effective fire suppression during airmobile operations. This book explores its history, technology and crew.

Adam Park Books 1 3 Book Excerpt:

A box set containing the first three thrillers featuring troubled PI Adam Park, the popular series that thrusts a detective from the sleazy corporate world into a hard-boiled existence where he must access the darkest corners of his soul to survive. The Dead and the Missing A brutal international underworld. A lost girl. A PI who will burn it all. Adam Park is an ex-private investigator, now too wealthy to need a job. But when his old mentor’s niece rips off a local criminal and flees the UK, Adam tracks the young woman and her violent, manipulative boyfriend through the Parisian underground. Here, and onward in Asia, he learns of a brutal criminal enterprise for whom people are just a business commodity. To return the girl safely and protect the ones he loves, Adam will need to burn down his concepts of right and wrong, at any cost to his soul. Review from Readers' Favourite: The Dead and the Missing is loaded with twists and turns and excitement, and had me holding my breath in fear several times, never being one hundred percent sure of how it would end. A.D. Davies is a very talented author. A Desperate Paradise With a damaging, violent case behind him, Adam Park is happy tending to his late mother’s canal barge and catching up on his reading. Unfortunately, he owes favors, and when the parents of an aid worker is murdered on the Greek island of Paramatra believe the investigation is deeply flawed, one such favor is called in. With the island struggling to cope with an influx of refugees, Adam must battle corruption and ruthless smuggling gangs, all amid people so desperate they will do anything to reach the paradise of the west. If he cannot stay the course and dig out the truth, a murderer will go free, and Adam will fall prey to the same evil. The Shadows of Empty Men When Adam Park is retained to confirm the accuracy of a young heiress’s family tree, it sounds like the simple case he needs to break the monotony of life on an Aegean island. But it soon becomes clear that others wish to stake a claim to the girl’s fortune, and something as inconvenient as a private investigator will not stand in their way. Delving into a decades-old secret that people will murder to protect, Adam must fight smart and fight hard—against a seemingly supernatural mercenary, against people of unfathomable greed, and against his own darkening nature. D. Davies is also the author of the Detective Sergeant Alicia Friend novels, plus a number of stand-alone books.
