The Embers of the Heart
Dwight BoNey

Doc’s life was perfect. Gorgeous wife, amazing son, and a beautiful home. He was living the American dream, until the day it was all taken away.

He would spend the next several months in a deep depression trying to figure out what he could have done to avoid losing the life that was so dear to him. Doc endlessly reviewed his memories, mistakes, and secrets trying to find the moment in time when everything could have been saved.

After weeks of soul searching, Doc realized he spent all his time helping people in need and not helping the people that needed him. He neglected his family and will never have the chance to embrace the sentimental moments he took for granted.

Doc cautiously tries to rebuild his life, but the traumatic experience of losing his nuclear family sends him spiraling into the depths of despair. He begins to question his faith and if his new life alone is worth living.


Felix Leiter CIA

Life is finally settling down, and a vacation in Cancun is just what Felix needs--white-sand beaches, clear azure blue water, warm days and hot nights and the chance for some female companionship. But when he receives a distress call from a fellow agent, it's time to get back to business, doing what he does best: placing his life on the line in the defense of freedom.

at 90 has, with his family – four generations who have worked at

In Pursuit The Hunt for the Beltway Snipers
David Reichenbaugh

October 2, 2002. A bullet pierced the window of a crafts store in Maryland, just missing the cashier. But other bullets hit their targets. In Pursuit follows the hunt for the Beltway snipers during the twenty-three-day shooting spree that terrorized Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. David Reichenbaugh, the criminal intelligence operations commander for the Maryland State Police, and commanding officer at the scene during the snipers’ capture in Myersville, Maryland, played a major role in the investigation from the first day of the killing spree through its final act, as the snipers were cornered in a rest area in western Maryland. He is one of a very few who know the complete details of the investigation and capture of the snipers.

Working against the clock with few clues and little evidence, hundreds of investigators from federal, state, county, and city law enforcement agencies struggled to find answers to the questions: Who were the killers? Was their choice of victims random? And most of all, Why did they kill? When the killers began leaving notes to taunt the police, investigators were finally able to begin assembling a picture, piercing the fog of uncertainty and terror that filled the region. In Pursuit is a step-by-step procedural that offers an inside look at how investigators made sense of the dizzying array of facts, conjectures, motives, and opportunities and brought to heel two of the most diabolical killers in the nation’s history.

David Reichenbaugh served as the criminal intelligence operations commander for the Maryland State Police, and as the commanding officer at the scene, during the Beltway snipers’ capture in Myersville, Maryland.
