A dramatic story of secrets, espionage, murder and cover-ups - the most important Cold War spy story for a generation. For half a century, the case of Isaiah Oggins, a 1920s New York intellectual brutally murdered in 1947 on Stalin's orders, remained hidden in the secret files of the KGB and the FBI - a footnote buried in the rubble of the Cold War. Then, in 1992, it surfaced briefly, when Boris Yeltsin handed over a deeply censored dossier to the White House. THE LOST SPY at last reveals the truth: Oggins was one of the first Americans to spy for the Soviets. Based on six years of international sleuthing, THE LOST SPY traces Oggins's rise in beguiling detail - a brilliant Columbia University graduate sent to run a safe house in Berlin and spy on the Romanovs in Paris and the Japanese in Manchuria - and his fall: death by poisoning in a KGB laboratory.

When Professors James Flanagan and Thomas Nellings from Brooklyn College of Natural History embark on a trip to Kentucky to inspect recently discovered artifacts in Mammoth Cave, they expect to find typical North American remains. But from the moment they inspect the artifacts, they know their lives have changed forever. The first indication of anything unusual is the discovery of cuneiform hieroglyphics-the earliest form of writing dating back 6,000 years in Mesopotamia. It's a mystery how writing of this kind has found its way to the United States. As Flanagan and Nellings explore deeper into the cavern, the pair discern a unique energy form; this Zero Point Energy could be the Holy Grail to unlimited energy which unscrupulous people would do anything to own. But they are truly shocked when they find an alien spacecraft ensconced deep below the earth. Their routine investigation quickly turns into a high-stakes adventure that could eliminate humanity's dependence on fossil fuels. Flanagan and Nellings could lose their lives or usher in a new age of peace and prosperity. But will humanity survive long enough to make the transition?

"In Rules of Engagement, David Bruns and J. R. Olson deliver a captivating and utterly authentic portrayal of modern day combat that compares with the best of the timeless classics by Tom Clancy, Dale Brown, and Stephen Coonts. This one must not be missed!" —Mark Greaney, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mission Critical A terrorist breach of the computer systems of the three most powerful navies is about to set them on a collision course for World War III. Rafiq Roshed is one of the most wanted men in the world. A terrorist with a virulent grudge against the West, he’s disappeared into North Korea where he quietly launches cyber sneak attacks in service of Kim Jong-un. But now he’s about to unleash his virtual masterpiece—a computer virus that, once inserted into the command systems of a military, not only takes over, but also learns the art of war. First penetrating the Chinese, he has their war machine launch a series of attacks on the U.S. Pacific forces. Don Riley, head of U.S. Cyber Command, discovers that not only have the Chinese lost control of their military, but the same virus has infected the American network. It’s only a matter of time before the U.S. loses control of its own military. His secret weapon in this war is a trio of supremely talented midshipmen from the U.S. Naval Academy, who uncover the infiltration, and are working to track down the elusive terrorist. But time is running out. China and Japan have lost control of their military and the U.S. is in danger of doing the same. The weapons are hot and the result is an ever-larger real-world conflict where casualties continue to mount. The only remaining hope is to find and stop the attack at its source—before time runs out.
