Exciting and authentic! Author Mayer, a Green Beret himself, gave me a vivid look at the world of the Army’s Special Forces. His portrayal of Green Beret operations and techniques takes you deep into the world of Special Operations.” W.E.B. Griffin.

A US Special Forces team lead by Green Beret Dave Riley is on a top secret mission to take down drug traffickers in Colombia, but while doing so they are faced with betrayal by their own government.

The team is carrying sterilized weapons and unmarked uniforms and the operation is “off the books.”

Of course, nothing is as it seems, especially once the CIA gets involved. Throw in an Israeli mercenary and betrayal, and Dave Riley and his team soon find themselves wondering what the real mission is and will they become collateral damage from all the double-dealing going on back in Washington.

Eyes of the Hammer is the first book in the bestselling Green Beret Series.

Stephen Coonts: “A scorcher of a novel!”

The fourth Will Kane book. Publication date, Spring 2020.

No one knows the full extent of the labyrinth that lies below New York City. It’s a world unto itself. People, mostly homeless, have made inroads to the more accessible parts for shelter. But there are other who prowl the darkness.

Will Kane has settled back into his life, but while bodyguarding a VIP couple on a routine ‘garbage’ tour of the seedier parts of the city, they witness an attack; one that draws Kane’s attention to a world he’d never paid attention to while growing up in the city: beneath his feet.

He learns this isn’t an isolated incident and that someone has been preying on the homeless and other subterranen denizens of the city. Murders are being committed in horrendous ways. The police, not able to even control the streets above, care little. It’s up to Kane to find out who is behind this. And as he literally digs deeper, he realizes it reaches to the highest levels of New York City.

Ex-Green Beret Will Kane has undiagnosed Asperger. He is a high functioning autistic, like a number of exceptional people, especially in the arts. Except his art is death and he is very, very good at it. Now he faces is greatest challenge yet.

Library Journal: “This book will appeal to a variety of horror and military fiction readers. Recommended.”

Dave Riley and his Green Beret A-Team must defeat a threat shockingly inhuman. Set in the shadowy world of genetic research, Synbat, stands for Synthetic Battle form.

The research is conducted at a lab in the deep woods of western Tennessee, under the Pentagon’s secret Black Budget, is Top Secret. Until the subjects of the experiment escape. The Synbats are now roaming the countryside, acting out what they were designed to do: kill.

Riley and his team are called in for ‘damage control.’ Easier said than done. They follow the deadly trail to Chicago, where long abandoned tunnels are a lair for the Synbats to complete what could well spell the end of mankind: procreate at incredible speed. It’s a race against time as Riley must destroy mankind’s greatest threat– our own genes spliced with that of another species.

Kirkus Reviews. “Action packed entertainment. An atavistic milieu plausibly conjured up by Mayer.”

Publishers Weekly. “Mayer keeps story and characters firmly under control. The venal motives of the scientists and military bureaucracy are tellingly contrasted with the idealism of the soldiers—a treat for military fiction readers.”

From Book 1:

Staff Sergeant Winthrop Carter has just been drafted into the Nightstalkers—an elite group of soldiers that…

Actually, he’s not quite sure what they do.

Born from the Area 51 initiative, the Nightstalkers defy sanity and decorum and include among their ranks Moms, a Black Ops trainee too extreme for Special Forces; Doc, a scientific crackpot; Roland, the weapons enthusiast; and Mac, a contemporary MacGyver. All of them take their orders from the elusive Ms. Jones, who everyone claims is just a hologram.

Those orders include tracking down and sealing tears in our reality that are releasing interdimensional beings known only as Fireflies—creatures that take control of both living and inanimate matter in order to unleash wanton destruction.

Just as Carter is settling in, a rogue scientist triggers a fresh invasion of Fireflies that swarm a swanky gated community. Now it’s up to Carter and his new teammates to neutralize the threat while figuring out who’s behind the breach.

An epic series in the vein of HBO’s Rome, following two ordinary men through extraordinary times; from West Point, through the Mexican War, and into the Civil War.

Elijah Cord and Lucius Rumble swore oaths, both personal and professional. They were fighting for country, for a way of life and for family. They and their West Point classmates carried more than rifles and sabers into battle. They had friendships, memories, children and wives. They had innocence lost, promises broken and glory found.

Duty, Honor, Country is history told epic and personal so we can understand what happened, but more importantly feel the heart-wrenching clash of duty, honor, country and loyalty. And realize that sometimes, the people who changed history, weren’t recorded by it.

The story starts in 1840, in Benny Havens tavern, just outside post limits of the United States Military Academy. William Tecumseh Sherman, Cord, and Benny Havens’ daughter come together in a crucible of honor and loyalty. On post, in the West Point stables, Ulysses S. Grant and Rumble are preparing to saddle the Hell-Beast, a horse with which Grant would eventually set an academy record. On this day, all make fateful decisions that will change the course of their lives and history.

We follow these men forward to the eve of the Mexican War, tracing their steps at West Point and ranging to a plantation at Natchez on the Mississippi, meeting Major Robert E. Lee at Arlington, and go to Charleston, SC. We travel aboard the USS Somers and the US Navy mutiny that led to the founding of the Naval Academy at Annapolis.

We end with Grant and Rumble in New Orleans, preparing to sail to Mexico and war, and Cord with Kit Carson and Fremont at Pilot Peak in Utah during his great expedition west.

This is book 1 in the Duty, Honor, Country series. (Formerly titled West Point to Mexico)

“Will leave you spellbound. Mayer’s long suit is detail, giving the reader an in-depth view of the inner workings of the Army and West Point.” Book News

The next book in the Area 51 series

Devastated by World War III, then an alien invasion coupled with Danse Macabre, a deadly virus attack, Earth is almost completely depopulated. The land is devastated. The sky is dark with nuclear winter. Despite the Swarm’s invasion ultimately being defeated, billions of humans were taken on board the Battle Core, infecting it and then wiped out when it plunged into the sun to prevent further infecting the Swarm.

The remnants of the invaders, monsters out of humanity’s worst nightmares, prowl the dark, shrouded landscape. The mothership, containing the Chosen has disappeared into Faster Than Light Transit to an unknown destination.

The survivors, including former Green Beret Mike Turcotte, the young Metabols in their biodome, Nosferatu and Nekhbet, the last of the Elders, and others are scattered and in despair.

Most strangely, though, is another group: the Fades. The humans who did not become Chosen or Metabols but also didn’t die. Who are they? What are they?

There seems to be no hope.

But it must always be remembered that Earth Abides.
