A Sneak Peak of the Cover of my new Book On Vietnam and Vietnam Vets

HERE’S A SNEAK-PEAK OF THE COVER OF MY NEW BOOK ON VIETNAM AND VIETNAM VETS

Our Vietnam WarsThis is a non-fiction book, not one of my suspense novels. It contains personal reminiscences of 100 of my fellow Vietnam vets and has some truly memorable stories in it. The book is going through final formatting and edits, and I hope to have it out on Kindle in 6-8 weeks.

Sometimes you’ve got to follow your passion. In my case, that’s the Vietnam War where I and many of my friends served. If your lived in the 1960s and 70s, it was the 800-pound gorilla in the room, one that effected every facet of our lives. Over 2.7 million of us served, 304,000 were wounded, 75,000 severely disabled, and over 58,220 of our brothers and sisters died there.

Unfortunately, all that most of our kids and grand kids know about that war is what they see in the Oliver StoBurke'sne movie, Platoon, or in the handful of better novels, all of which center on an infantry unit in the jungle on the Cambodian border in 1968. That was Oliver’s war. He was there, bless his Hollywood heart, but it wasn’t mine. In fact, there were hundreds of different wars, depending on the year you were there, the service you were in, your branch, location, job, and your rank.

What I’m writing is not a war book; rather, it is a very personal look at the men and women who served there. The title is “Our Vietnam Wars.”Through in-depth interviews with 100 vets, I hope to capture the diversity of their experience “in country,” in photos and 3-5-page vignettes, and touch on what they did before and after the war, and how it effected them.  I now have 89 interviews finished and I think they are fascinating stories.

We are all old and gray now, pushing 70, and beset by a myriad of illnesses, but I hope this book will show what we saw and felt there. Part of the urgency to tell our stories is Agent Orange. It’s killing us off in increasing numbers now, and as many now say, “They didn’t get us back then, but they are doing a first-class job of it now.”

I hope to have this book out by year’s end. I’ll keep you posted on my progress and when you should expect to see it. I think it will be a great read.

THURSDAY AT NOON:  Treachery and double-dealing are the rule in this spy vs spy thriller.  A dead Mossad agent,  Nazi rocket scientists, the Moslem Brotherhood, a corrupt American ambassador, and two missing Egyptian tank regiments – somebody’s trying to start another Arab-Israeli war.

Check It Out here

Richard Thomson is a burnt-out CIA agent who the Agency dumped in Egypt because they couldn’t think of a worse place to send him. Already gnawed on by Langley and set-up by the Cairo police, his day can’t get much worse, until someone leaves a dead body on the rear steps of his hotel with its head lopped off like a ripe melon.

A message? No doubt about it. The body belongs to Mahmoud Yussuf, a fat, petty thief and wannabe spy who is peddling photographs of a long-abandoned RAF base in the Egyptian desert.

While the world focuses on Russian missiles in Cuba, no one notices the ones being rolled out in the Egyptian desert pointed at Israel, no one, except Thomson.

Alone and on the run, no one believes his story — not the CIA, the US Ambassador, and most

assuredly not Captain Hassan Saleh, Chief of the Homicide Bureau of the Cairo Police, who

wants to hang Thomson for murder.

Like Night of the Generals, this is a murder mystery wrapped inside an international political thriller. Tick Toc, Tick Toc, it’s all going to start at Noon on Thursday, unless Thompson can stopBurke's them.

This Cold War spy thriller will sweep you back to when John Kennedy was in the White House, Nikita Khrushchev ruled the Kremlin, and Abdel, Gamal Nasser sat precariously in Cairo, threatened by the radical Islamist fringe of the Moslem Brotherhood.

If you’re looking for a good beach book or something to curl up with in front of the fire, this fast-moving conspiracy thriller is from the author of Burke’s Revenge, Burke’s Gamble, Burke’s War, The Undertaker, Amongst My Enemies, Winner Lose All and Aim True, My Brothers, with over 500 Kindle 5-Star Reviews. Enjoy!

Bob Burke is on a Well-Deserved R&R for A While

SOME DETAILS ON MY NEXT BOOK

My Bob Burke action adventure series has become very popular with my readers. Call me stupid, but I’m temporarily setting it aside to finish something that has become a bit more important to me in recent years. I know, I know; you never jump off a winning horse, but sometimes you’ve got to follow your passion.

In my case, that’s the Vietnam War. If your lived in the 1960s and 70s, it was the 800-pound gorilla in the room, one that effected every facet of our Burke'slives. Over 2.7 million of us served, 304,000 were wounded, 75,000 severely disabled, and over 58,220 of our brothers and sisters died there.

That was Oliver’s war. He was there, bless his Hollywood heart, but it wasn’t mine. In fact, there were hundreds of different wars, depending on the year you were there, the service you were in, your branch, location, job, and your rank.

And if any of you are Vietnam vets, drop me a note at BurkesRevenge468@gmail.com  I’m not finished writing, and I could still use a few more good stories.

Burke’s War is on a Kindle Countdown Sale Today. 4.5 Stars om 318 Reviews. Grab One!

Burke's War,  Thriller Novel, action-adventureI usually don’t put Burke’s War, Book #1 in the highly popular Bob Burke action adventure thriller series on sale, but I did today. It is on a Kindle Countdown Sale today for $0.99, and with the growing world-wide shortage of electrons, you should grab a copy while they last.  This  book #1 in the series.  This is only the beginning of August, and it’s the best beach read, swimming pool book you’re likely to come across.

Think “The American Sniper” meets “The Godfather.”

As Bob Burke’s 737 lands at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, he sees a man strangling a woman on a rooftop below. Whether or not anyone believes him, Bob Burke isn’t the kind of guy to let a thing like that rest. He knows what he saw, and it isn’t going to end well for the men responsible.

Mild-mannered and slight of build, this telecommunications company executive is easily dismissed as the “phone guy.” But after four tours running ‘special operations’ missions in Iraq and the rugged mountains of Afghanistan as an Army Ranger and Delta Force commander, he’s one of the most lethal killers the US government ever produced.

Over the next three days, Bob Burke finds himself butting heads with the Chicago mob, crooked suburban cops, an overzealous Burke'sUS Attorney, a psychopathic doctor, and his own vindictive soon-to-be-ex-wife, who is trying to take his company away from him. But as his big, muscular, Delta Force sergeants will readily admit, whether he’s carrying a .50-caliber Barrett sniper rifle, a tactical knife, or just his bare hands, he’s the one you don’t want to meet in a dark alley.

His new combat zone might be a glittering high-rise office building, a suburban tract house, or a wooded Chicago Forest Preserve District park, but when the bodies start falling and a young woman needs help, The Ghost doesn’t hesitate.

After all, they started it, and he intends to finish it. And if he does need a little backup, he knows just the guys to call down at Fort Bragg. After all, it wouldn’t be fair to leave them out of the fun, would it?

Looking for a good beach book or something to curl up with in front of the fire, this fast-moving conspiracy thriller is from the author of Burke’s Gamble, Burke’s War, The Undertaker, Amongst My Enemies, Thursday at Noon, and Aim True, My Brothers, with over 500 Kindle 5-Star Reviews.

 Bob Burke is back… again!

After his recent adventures in Burke’s War and Burke’s Gamble, all this former sniper, Army Ranger, and Delta Force commander wants is to settle down on his North Carolina farm and let Iraq, Afghanistan, and his recent ‘dustups’ with the Chicago and New York mobs fade away like bad memories.

Burke'sBut sometimes you go looking for trouble, and sometimes trouble comes looking for you. When a home-grown ISIS cell strikes the Special Operations leadership inside Fort Bragg itself, in Delta’s own backyard, it’s time for some serious payback and a taste of revenge.

Undersized, underestimated, and now a telecommunications company executive, he is often dismissed as simply the “phone guy,” but as his former Delta sergeants will attest, whether he’s carrying a .50-caliber Barrett sniper rifle, a tactical knife, or just his bare hands, he is one of the most lethal killing machines the US Government ever produced.

When C-4 takes out a close friend and one of their own, it falls to the ‘Merry Men of Sherwood Forest’ -– Bob Burke, Ace Randall, a female CID agent, the Geeks, a maverick helicopter pilot, and a large pit-cat to even the score before the terrorists strike an even more important US military target only 200 miles away.

Combining the best of World War II historical fiction, action adventure, Cold War Thriller, Bill Brown, Reader favoriteand romance, this fast-paced spy thriller will resonate. As WW II grinds to an halt in the rubble of Nazi Germany, all eyes turn to the next ‘cold’ one. The Americans, the Russians, and the British know the future belongs to whomever can grab Hitler’s ‘Wonder Weapon’ technology, because his new rockets, jet fighters, and submarines will shape the balance of world power for decades to come. Old enemies become tomorrow’s allies, old friends can’t be trusted, and lies and double-dealing are now the norm in this spy vs spy thriller.

Pete Talbott, a harried Boston computer wonk, is still grieving over the death of his wife, when he finds himself at the wrong end of Gino Parini’s .45 reading his own obituary torn from the morning newspaper. Talbott figures it’s all a big mistake, until Parini shows him his wife’s obituary too; and that’s a mystery that Pete Talbott can’t leave well-enough alone.

Sandy Kasmarek is a kick-ass art gallery attendant on Chicago’s stylish North Michigan Avenue, and her late and un-lamented husband is also featured in another of the bogus obituaries.
