            Jim Murphy, the hero of The Methuselah Project, is abruptly brought out of semi-retirement in Costa Rica in 1986 to conduct one more dangerous mission. His Vietnamese National Police (NP) counterpart in1975, Colonel Bui-Hop, has been assassinated in Denver, Colorado. His only gra...ndchild, Maui, had been kidnapped by the local Vietnamese mafia known as the Red Feather's Gang. Bui-Hop's daughter, Mia Ling Hue, tracked down Murphy in Costa Rica and pleaded for his help. The Red Feather's Gang was demanding one million in gold bullion they believed Bui-Hop hid in Da Nang Province at the time of Saigon's collapse in April 1975. It was believed that 15 tons of gold were in the South Vietnamese National Bank at that time. If their demands weren't met within 90 days, the child would be murdered. This fast-paced drama takes Murphy into the heart of the Red Feather's Gang territory in Denver. Murphy is shocked to find that the Gang is a local chapter of the Dai Cathy Brotherhood which had controlled all gambling, drugs, and vice in Vietnam in the 1970s. They helped the CIA covertly move drugs from the Golden Triangle via Air America to raise funds in support of the CIA Iran Contra covert operation. When the Los Angeles-based Dai Cathy Brotherhood send their primary enforcer to Denver, things start to heat-up. It doesn't take long before bodies start to pile-up! Murphy soon realizes that old acquaintances have become new enemies. Murphy can only find the truth with the help of new friends, detective 'Flower' Pham, and her partner, Frank Anderson, of the Denver PD Asian Gang Squad. CIA assassination teams, Congressional influence, and Russian blackmail collide in this attempt to hide one of the most secret and corrupt covert operations ever encountered. Murphy soon discovers that no good deed goes unpunished. Murphy is forced to return to Vietnam to help a friend whose family has been placed in serious jeopardy by the Brotherhood leader Trinh. Murphy figured that there was more

            Jake Tanner's assignment as a United States Federal Marshal in the newly minted state of Colorado is complicated by an influx of trappers, mountain men, and prospectors. Added to this collection of immigrants are settlers filing homestead claims and cattlemen looking for free gra...zing land. Jake, in addition to keeping the peace, takes advantage of the Desert Act of 1877 and acquires enough land to start a cattle ranch of his own. Success as a federal marshal and cattle rancher is assured until mysterious events occur. Although relatively minor at first, these episodes become increasingly serious until the lives of Jake's family are threatened and innocent people are killed. Has Jake's former life as a federal marshal in Kansas finally caught up with him? To find out, Jake devises a plan to find his adversary and bring him to justice. Simple as that plan seems to be, though, catching his ghostly opponent is far more complicated than foreseen. Will more people die before the identity of Jake's diabolical antagonist is disclosed and justice is served?

            Kopp Sisters on the March (EPUB ebook)

            By Stewart, Amy

            The fearless Kopp sisters are back in another unforgettable romp by HWA-longlisted international bestseller Amy Stewart. It's 1917, and the US Army is marching to join its allies in the First World War. Constance Kopp and her sisters may not be soldiers, but that doesn't mean th...ey can't do their bit. All over America, women are banding together to create military-style training camps, and so the Kopp sisters leave their farm in New Jersey to learn some army discipline. In Kopp Sisters on the March, the women of Camp Chevy Chase face down the scepticism of the War Department, the double standards of a scornful public, and the very real perils of war. Once again, Amy Stewart has brilliantly brought a little-known moment in history to light.

            A classic tale of drama on the frontier, a thrilling tale of a how a man's home is truly his castle. The Lindsay family has come west hoping to help the father, John, recover from an illness. When they arrive, they are induced to purchase Spanish Peaks Ranch, an abandoned United ...States military post surrounded by mountains. It seems like a perfect place to settle into their new life as ranchers. As they soon find out, though, this deserted fort is equally suited for both protection and imprisonment. In fact, they've been swindled into buying the longtime headquarters and hideout for a band of thieves and rustlers. Almost as soon as they get to work, the Lindsay family's peace is disturbed, and their protected new homestead quickly becomes an isolated outpost as rustlers begin to harass their herds. John Lindsay discovers there are spies among his faithful cowboys. Things continue to get worse until finally their brewing hostilities climax in a nighttime attack, leading to all-out war and the abduction of one of the Lindsay girls and elopement of another. John must fight against treason on the inside and enemies on the outside to keep his family and new life safe.
