Sequel to Ghost
and Choosers of the Slain
Michael Harmon has been there and done that. Rescued co-eds, killed major terrorists, stopped nuclear assaults. Now he'd just like to kick back and relax with his harem of lovelies. Unfortunately, the world keeps turning. Mike and the Keldara are back tracking down terrorists, rogue Russian bio-scientists and the doomsday weapon to end all doomsday weapons. It's going to take some very tough, hard and nasty people to stop the end of the world. Fortunately, there's Mike Harmon. The Hero of Ghost, Kildar and Choosers of the Slain, along with his company of elite mountain fighters, is sent on a mission to stop an advanced smallpox plague from being turned over to terrorists. But that will only be the beginning as the Kildar and his Keldara rush to stop a host of WMD attacks, coordinated to take out the very heartland of terrorism's enemies. It's a battle for culture, and this time the terrorists aren't aiming at just one building. . . .
"Ringo (Choosers of the Slain) surpasses himself in his latest Kildar novel, an SF-tinged action yarn that will appeal to those interested in the psychology of leadership. Mike Harmon, the former SEAL operator who through the vicissitudes of fortune finds himself warlord to a Caucasus tribe, is pressured by those he trusts into mounting a rescue mission deep inside Chechen territory. Their target? A Russian scientist being forced to assist in the transfer of WMD by terrorists who hold his daughter captive. As it becomes apparent that Mike's supposed allies have withheld vital intelligence from him, his responsibilities become almost unbearable and force him into recognizing some unpalatable truths about himself. The Keldara, living fossils of a pagan warrior past, throw themselves into battle with a fervor that's truly religious. The final desperate fight could have been clichd, but it attains a terrible beauty not unlike that of the Norse Eddas." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
Wanting nothing more than to kick back and relax, Mike Harmon and his elite Keldara confront their ultimate mission to stop an advanced form of smallpox plague from falling into the hands of terrorists and to prevent a series of WMD attacks on America's heartland, in the sequel to Ghost, Kildar, and Choosers of the Slain.
In the sequel to "Ghost, Kildar," and "Choosers of the Slain," former SEAL Michael Harmon returns to track down terrorists, rogue Russian bio-scientists, and the doomsday weapon to end all doomsday weapons. It's going to take some very tough, hard, and nasty people to stop the end of the world.
