WINNER –NEWSPAPER HOUSE LITERARY AWARD – 2012 Security arrangements for a visit to Australia by the US Secretary of State are made under the watchful eye of a beautiful Australian diplomat, stationed in Washington. As the jet carrying the US officials enters Australian air space, intelligence services intercept a coded message, setting alarm bells ringing and prompting a national security operation. All the signs point towards Islamic terrorists. Tom Grant, a rugged, highly decorated Australian SAS Commander just back from Afghanistan, leads a frantic mission to hunt down the suspects. As the gap between the fugitives and their hunters closes, a cruel twist emerges, challenging credulity and threatening a highly explosive international incident. ““Nowhere in the Qur’an is there an exhortation to kill. That is just the Mantra of xenophobic westerners wanting to discredit Islam. Indeed, Chapter 17: Verse 70 of the Q’uran makes interesting reading. It states: ‘Respect and honour all human beings irrespective of their religion, colour, race, sex, language, status, property, birth or profession’”. “In that instant, Sentinel’s eyes assumed a puzzled look ... then a look of surprise and finally ... of horror, as he realised he was going to die. The bullet had punched through Sentinel’s soft tissue, entering his cranial cavity and exploding out of the side of his face ....” A masterful narrative, by a master story-teller. “Riveting realism. Riveting suspense-from a master story-teller”

For more than half a century, Big Safari-modified aircraft have performed dangerous and essential missions to collect intelligence, conduct surveillance and reconnaissance, and engage in special operations missions around the globe in the interest of national security. These state-of-the-art aircraft have been flown, operated, and maintained by men and women whose dedication and commitment have made the world a safer place. In The History of Big Safari, author Colonel Bill Grimes, a retired US Air Force officer, presents a history of this program, which has been in existence for more than sixty years. Born as a special acquisition program in 1952, Big Safari has been in a unique position to save lives by rapidly fielding essential systems with a quick-reaction capability to ensure decision makers on the battlefield and at the Pentagon have timely intelligence to plan and execute operations. Grimes shows how, without a special acquisition program such as Big Safari, the nation's ability to react to evolving dangers and threats would be mired in bureaucracy when timely responses are critical. With detailed cutaway illustrations revealing aircraft modifications and mission equipment, The History of Big Safari also includes photographs, sidebars, and anecdotes. It goes behind the scenes with the men and women who participated in the challenging projects and daring missions. It shares the development of cutting-edge technology and special mission aircraft, as well as the global events that necessitated these once-classified programs. Finally, it provides insight into long-veiled projects, operations, and missions that comprise the world under the purview of Big Safari.

Als ehemaliges Mitglied des United States Secret Service' bin ich es gewohnt, im Rahmen meiner Tätigkeit mein Leben aufs Spiel zu setzen. Das Können, das ich mir während meiner Beschäftigung in Washington angeeignet habe, hat mich zu einem geschätzten Mitglied der Jameson Force Security Group gemacht. Doch als der Präsident mich persönlich bittet, seine Nichte zu beschützen, befinde ich mich ganz schnell wieder im Dienst des Oval Office'. Einfach ausgedrückt ... Barrett Alexander ist mehr als brillant. Die landesweit renommierte Energieforscherin befindet sich kurz vor dem Durchbruch. Ihre Entdeckung wird die Welt verändern, doch leider macht sie das auch zum Ziel einer Terrorzelle. Während die Bedrohung für Barrett immer größer wird, besteht ihre beste Chance aufs Überleben darin unterzutauchen. Die Gefahr, in der Barrett schwebt, sorgt dafür, dass wir uns näher kommen, als geplant. Schon bald wird mir klar, dass ich sie nicht beschützen will, weil es mein Job ist, sondern weil ich mich in sie verliebt habe. Und nun ist niemand mehr sicher vor meiner Rache, sollte ihr tatsächlich etwas geschehen! Teil 2 der Jameson Force Security-Reihe von New York Times-Bestsellerautorin Sawyer Bennett.

During much of the Cold War, America's first line of defense was in outer space: a network of secret satellites that could provide instant warning of an enemy missile launch. The presence of these infrared sensors orbiting 22,000 miles above the earth discouraged a Soviet first strike and stabilized international relations between the superpowers, and they now play a crucial role in monitoring the missile programs of China, India, and other emerging nuclear powers. Jeffrey Richelson has written the first comprehensive history of this vital program, tracing its evolution from the late 1950s to the present. He puts Defense Support Program operations in the context of world events - from Russian missile programs to the Gulf War - and explains how DSP's infrared sensors are used to detect meteorites, monitor forest fires, and even gather industrial intelligence by "seeing" the lights of steel mills.
