But one must be wary of old enemies... On the run from the Pasdaran, the theocrat's terror army, and unable to count on support from his friends in the regular army, Iranian rebel leader General Hesarak al-Kan Buzhazi desperately turns to his old nemesis, U.S. Air Force Lieutenant-General Patrick McLanahan, for help.

Filled with the latest cutting-edge weaponry, geopolitical intrigue, high-flying suspense, and a colorful cast of characters, Strike Force is New York Times bestselling master Dale Brown at his best.

from the cover flap: 'An open-and-shut case: a man dies of arsenic poisoning; his lover admits to having bought arsenic. But when Lord Peter Wimsey meets the young woman standing trial for her life--Harriet Vane--he is certain she's innocent. Lord Peter sets out doggedly pursuing every clue, every possibility. For not only is he convinced of Harriet's innocence, he's also in love with her from the moment he first sees her testifying in court."

Doctor Watson, returned fresh from Afghanistan with an injured arm and shattered nerves from illness, moves to London on a pension. He is most introduced to Sherlock Holmes, with whom he rooms for some time. He is skeptical about Holmes' self professed deductive powers, and so Holmes allows him to tag along on a case that the police cannot solve. Needless to say, Holmes thoroughly impresses Watson with his deductive powers, and promises to keep records of all of Holmes' cases so that his excellent detecting doesn't go unrewarded. The first part of A Study in Scarlet leads to the arrest of the murderer, and the second part provides the story of the murderer's life and motives, previously unexplained. Part two takes the listener across the ocean to the original settlement of Salt Lake City in Utah, and a story of hardship, love, greed, Mormons, and revenge, and then back to London to sort out the explanations.
