I 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 US 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.
