Book description…

In the deep, shadowy forest of New York’s Adirondack mountains, CIA Agent Dave McClure will meet his most horrific nightmare…and face his greatest challenge ever!

The CIA and its top agent, Dave McClure, have their hands perilously full. Franz Altmann, a vicious killer and a member of the German terror group Red Storm Movement, has slipped unseen into America. He intends to bring the U.S., the world’s epicenter of capitalism and finance, to its knees in a horrendous attack.
If that isn’t enough, Vassily Krasnoff, a Russian believed fatally wounded in the Alaskan wilderness by McClure’s rifle shot, didn’t die as intelligence indicated. Krasnoff has emerged from a coma, and now he wants revenge for the death of his brother, Leonide. Someone Dave McClure loves dearly must die—in the most gruesome fashion imaginable—if McClure doesn’t find and kill Krasnoff first.

Product description…

With humor and other times through the heartbreak and drama that accompanies the loss of friends from violent acts of terrorists, Randall Bennett’s memoir reveals his evolution from a new Special Agent to one of the most experienced in the U.S. Government. Bennett and his various teams approached each mission with intense focus, courage, and compassion. Taking Up the Sword relates the wide range of his adventures, from searching for narco-terrorist operations in the Colombian jungle with the true Tarzan of the Amazon, to rescuing abandoned family pets and a baby gorilla while protecting the American citizens in Kinshasa, Zaire, to risking his own life trying to save Wall Street Journal Reporter Daniel Pearl. It includes the actions that led to the capture of “The Dirty Bomber” Jose Padilla, as well as his nearly six years in Pakistan and a tour as head of security for the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Iraq. Bennett survived bombings, rockets, and assaults against himself and those he was sworn to protect throughout his highly decorated career, all while doing a job he loves. With an original and fascinating perspective, Special Agent Bennett takes you behind the scenes—to the jungles, deserts, mountains, and exotic back streets of foreign countries—where these elite and highly trained Special Agents do things that books are written about and movies are made for—quietly and often without recognition.
