American Sniper

Burke’s War Action-Adventure Novel by William F Brown

Think the American Sniper meets ‘The Godfather’ ─ another action and suspense thriller novel from an author with over 500 Five-Star ratings on Amazon. As Bob Burke’s 737 comes in to land at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, he looks out his window and sees a man murder a woman on a rooftop below. No one believes him, of course, but that doesn’t matter. He knows what he saw, and Bob Burke isn’t the kind of guy to let a thing like that rest. Over the next three days, he finds himself butting heads with the Chicago mob, crooked suburban cops, a zealous US Attorney, a psychopathic doctor, and his own vindictive soon-to-be-ex-wife, who is trying to take his company away from him. Slight of build and now a telecommunications company executive, Bob Burke appears to be an easy guy to dismiss; but ‘the telephone guy’ is a former Army Ranger and Delta Force commander who spent four tours in Iraq and the rugged mountains of Afghanistan running ‘special operations’ missions. His men were some of the most lethal killers the US government ever produced; but as they readily admit, the little guy the middle of the photos is the one you don’t want to meet in a dark alley. So, when the bodies start falling, a young woman needs help, and the wrong people start pushing his buttons, long odds don’t bother him in the slightest. His new combat zone might be a high-rise office building, tract houses in a suburban subdivision, and a wooded Chicago Forest Preserve District, but they started it and the American Sniper intends to finish it. And when Burke does need a little backup, he knows just who to call.
