In this new novel from the New York Times bestselling authors, Marine sniper Kyle Swanson finds himself in the sights of a man he once idolized--his former mentor and a true American hero turned traitor. Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson and his beautiful girlfriend, CIA agent Lauren Carson, are on a mission in Pakistan when their world is turned inside out. During a dangerous urban assault on two Taliban fighters in Islamabad, Kyle finds himself captured and imprisoned, suddenly alone in the hands of the enemy. Lauren, meanwhile, is accused by the CIA of being a double agent. The only person they can trust to protect them is the man who sent them on the black operation to begin with-- Jim Hall, a legendary CIA agent, Kyle's sniper mentor, and Lauren's boss and former lover. But Hall has gone rogue. He has agreed to sell America's innermost secrets to a ruthless Pakistani warlord, who is planning to mold al-Qaeda into a legitimate political party and secure a nuclear arsenal. Jim Hall, with decades as an insider in American defense and intelligence, is the linchpin in the warlord's plans. Now Hall's former protege Swanson is the final obstacle. The U.S. government's success or failure to stop al-Qaeda pivots on whether Swanson can stop his old friend, the man who trained him to be a shooter. From the streets of Washington to the Bavarian Alps, the two snipers must stalk each other in a deadly hunt that has only one possible outcome.
On the heels of the New York Times bestselling Kill Zone and Dead Shot comes the most thrilling installment of the Kyle Swanson sniper saga yet. An attempt at peace in the Middle East is brutally shattered. Only Swanson can find out who is responsible, and why, before the world plunges into war. At an ancient castle in Scotland, Sir Geoffrey Cornwell is brokering an unprecedented peace agreement. Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and the Israeli foreign minister are ready to sign a historic treaty--until their meeting is crushed by a missile strike that leaves the foreign minister of Israel dead and the prince wounded. Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson is running covert missions in the mountains of Pakistan when he's called to the United Kingdom, and he arrives just as there is a follow-up terrorist attempt to kill the prince. The attackers aren't working for Al Qaeda--they are employed by foreign operatives determined to overthrow the government of Saudi Arabia and take the Saudi oil reserves by whatever means necessary. Meanwhile, out of hiding comes Juba, one of the most dangerous terrorists in the world. Juba is determined to exact revenge on his nemesis Swanson, who nearly took his life. With scenes of tremendous suspense that span the globe, Clean Kill puts Kyle Swanson in the sights of a group whose greed and vengeance have no limits. That ruthless ambition, however, also brings them into Swanson's sights, which is the wrong place to be.
In this follow-up to the highly successful Kill Zone, former Marine sniper Kyle Swanson faces his most deadly enemy yet, a legendary enemy sniper working with a fringe Islamic organization that has created a terrifying new weapon of mass destruction. In Baghdad's Green Zone, an Iraqi scientist is murdered just before he is to reveal the monstrous secret that Saddam Hussein took to his grave: the Palace of Death, home to a chemical weapon that Islamic militants quietly have been developing and whose formula is nearly complete. The assassination is the work of a mysterious sniper called Juba, who was originally trained by the British but now works with a twisted mastermind determined to wrest leadership of the terrorist world from Al Qaeda. Kyle Swanson, once the top sniper in the Marine Corps, has become the key member in a secret special operations team known as Task Force Trident. When Juba tests the new weapon by killing hundreds of people at a British royal wedding in London, Swanson is assigned to hunt down his old special ops rival. The birth of a new reign of global terror can be stopped only by a confrontation between the two best snipers in the world, a duel in which the first shot wins. Usually.

An American general is captured in the Middle East by terrorists who threaten to behead him within days. One strange fact: moments before he is rendered unconscious during the attack, the general notices that his captors speak American English. What's going on? Gunnery Sgt. Kyle Swanson, a top Marine sniper, is vacationing on a yacht in the Mediterranean when he receives orders to mount a top secret mission to rescue the general. But as the Marines prepare to land in the Syrian desert, they fall victim to a terrible accident. Swanson, the only survivor, then discovers they were also flying into an ambush. How did the enemy have details of a mission known only to a few top American government officials? Swanson takes off across the desert alone to find the captured general and realizes he is fighting a particularly ruthless and dangerous enemy: American mercenaries working for a very-high-level group of U.S. officials with ties to the White House itself, part of a clandestine conspiracy whose hidden goal is nothing less than total control of the American military. Their sworn enemy is the captured general whose fate now rests in Swanson's hands. Filled with the kind of action that author Jack Coughlin lived during his career as a Marine sniper, Kill Zone marks the debut of an extraordinary new series.
In the latest high-intensity thriller in the New York Times bestselling sniper series, Marine Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson is sent into Pakistan, where an international team of medical workers has been executed in order to cover up a deadly terrorist secret. In the aftermath of great floods, a doctor on a relief mission in northeastern Pakistan discovers the remains of a collapsed bridge that reminds him of a bridge near his childhood home in Ohio. He snaps a cell-phone picture and sends it to his sister, just before his entire team is slaughtered. His sister is Beth Ledford, a Coast Guard sniper, who suspects that the answer to the mystery of her brother's death is in that cell-phone picture. No one believes her until she finds Sergeant Kyle Swanson and the secret special operations team known as Task Force Trident. When Kyle takes Beth into Pakistan to investigate, they find the true secret behind the mass murder--what may be the last, best hope of victory by al Qaeda and the Taliban over allied forces. Now the two snipers have their sights set on one man, an American diplomat who has become the biggest obstacle to victory in the war on terror. The only question is: which of them gets to pull the trigger?
From the bestselling authors of Shooter and Running the Maze comes a chillingly realistic thriller about Islamic terrorists bent on delivering Egypt into the hands of America's archenemy--Iran. In the newest page-turner in the New York Times bestselling series featuring American sniper Kyle Swanson, an American accountant is murdered in his Maryland home by Iranian assassins. A goodwill visit to Cairo by Iran's national soccer team ends in a bloodbath. Egyptian missiles rain down on an Iranian Navy ship in the Red Sea, and Iran retaliates by landing elite troops at a popular Egyptian resort and attacking tourist hotels. The Muslim Brotherhood is on the march to bring Egypt under the political control of powerful Iran. Running the coup is a ruthless double agent called the Pharaoh, who will stop at nothing to establish an obedient puppet regime on Israel's border, and take complete control of the Suez Canal, the choke point for the world's oil flow. The United States will never allow that to happen, but options are limited and things are moving fast. Washington turns to Marine master sniper Kyle Swanson and the beautiful Egyptologist Tianha Bialy, a British Secret Service agent, who have been trapped behind the lines. Given free rein to attack the Iranian invaders, Swanson goes on a dangerous mission to prevent a total war in the Middle East, no matter what the cost.
