Special Agent Mark Beamon is a maverick. His open disdain for the FBI’s rules and Directors has exiled him to a no profile post in the boondocks. But when a shadowy right wing group starts flooding America’s emergency rooms with dead and dying, Beamon is summoned back to Washington. Teamed with an icily efficient female field agent, he is given the thankless task of stopping the slaughter even though millions of Americans secretly approve of it! As the body count rises, Beamon realizes there is something eerily familiar about his adversary, reminding him of the coldest killer he ever encountered not a criminal but a law enforcement colleague.

Storming Heaven

Punished for his maverick ways, FBI agent Mark Beamon has been exiled from Washington, D.C., to a sleepy Southwest office where he’s got one last chance to play by the rules. But that’s not going to happen, not when he’s on a case that may be too hot even for his unorthodox talents to handle. A local millionaire and his wife are brutally murdered. Jennifer, their teenage child and sole heir, is the prime suspect and she’s gone missing. Laying everything on the line, Beamon sets off on a trail that takes him from a remote survivalist’s cabin in the Utah mountains, through the labyrinthine headquarters of a cultlike church, into the shadowy, interlocking boardrooms of a powerful high tech communications empire. Just when he thinks he’s close to finding answers, Beamon discovers the killing of Jennifer’s parents is far more sinister than even he could have guessed. Now he isn’t just looking for a young girl he’s got to stop a bizarre conspiracy that could bring America to its knees…

Free Fall

‘I was with the FBI…

‘Special Agent Mark Beamon has a plan. By slurring that one key word ‘was,’ he can obscure the fact that he has been suspended, and use the FBI against itself to solve the toughest, most twisted case of his career. It’s bold. It’s dangerous. It’s the kind of maverick operation that has made him both the bureau’s best agent and its least likely to succeed screw up. And it leads to the kind of nonstop action and intrigue that has made Kyle Mills a premier name in thriller adventure writing since his debut novel, Rising Phoenix. In Free Fall, a top secret FBI file buried in an anonymous government warehouse is missing. Code named Prodigy, the operation was the brainchild of J. Edgar Hoover, who created it to use against his potential enemies, which encompassed everyone in Washington, from JFK to this year’s presidential candidate, David Hallorin. The unlucky grad student who uncovered Prodigy is dead, and now his girlfriend is on the run, accused of a hideous murder. The only man everyone agrees can find the young woman and turn up the explosive document is ‘off duty.’ After he revealed embarrassing government illegalities during his previous investigation, the FBI has turned on Mark Beamon and is threatening him with criminal prosecution. He knows better than anyone that this case is his last shot to save his career and his country. Tracking her down will turn out to be the most demanding case Beamon’s ever faced for the young woman is a professional rock climber and can drop out of sight anywhere in the world. As it becomes clear that he isn’t the only one looking, Beamon begins to ask himself if he might be better off failing this time. Even if he does find her and the file, who will he be able to trust when the FBI itself is under suspicion?Free Fall takes place in the danger zone where high crimes and extreme sports clash. It’s a nonstop adventure that moves from the frozen mountaintops of Wyoming to the cavernous archives of the FBI, from the siren haunted L.A. streets to the jungles of Thailand. Mark Beamon is playing for the highest stakes this time. If he blows this one, his career is over and his prison term begins…

Sphere of Influence

Mark Beamon has always been an unconventional FBI agent and years of putting truth ahead of protocol have him languishing in a dead end job in the Bureau’s Phoenix office. But before he can officially be put out to pasture, our nation’s war against terrorism pulls him back to the front lines. Videotapes arriving at television stations across the country bear a terrifying message: A terrorist cell inside the United States possesses a rocket launcher and will begin attacking civilian targets within days. As panic takes hold, the FBI calls on Beamon for one last assignment. Suspecting a connection between the Mob and these fanatics, he is sent undercover to meet a Mafia don who might have information concerning the terrorists. That simple meeting goes horribly wrong when Beamon’s partner is executed after his cover is blown. Barely escaping with his life, Beamon is determined to find the source of the leak and, more important, in one final act of self destructive heroism, to exact revenge. As he spirals into a world of government corruption, murder, and betrayal, Beamon comes to know the mysterious Christian Volkov a master criminal with seemingly limitless power. Soon it is clear that only through Volkov will Beamon be able to avenge his friend’s death and unravel the conspiracy threatening his country. Performed by Michael Kramer

A group of terrorists has descended on the Executive Mansion, and gained access by means of a violent massacre that has left dozens of innocent bystanders murdered. Through the quick actions of the Secret Service, the president is evacuated to his underground bunker, but not before almost one hundred hostages are taken. While the politicians and the military leaders argue over how to negotiate with the terrorists, one man is sent in to break through the barrage of panicked responses and political agendas surrounding the chaotic crisis.

In Protect and Defend, the action begins in the heart of Iran, where billions of dollars are being spent on the development of a nuclear program. No longer willing to wait for the international community to stop its neighboring enemy, Israel launches one of the most creative and daring espionage operations ever conceived. The attack leaves a radioactive tomb and environmental disaster in the middle of Iran’s second largest city.

Enter Mitch Rapp, America’s top counterterrorism operative. Used to employing deception, Rapp sees an opportunity where others see only Iranian reprisals that could leave thousands of Americans dead.

When Kennedy’s meeting with Ashani goes disastrously wrong, Rapp and Mukhtar are set on a collision course that threatens to engulf the entire region in war. With the clock ticking, Rapp is given twenty four hours, no questions asked, to do whatever it takes to stop Mukhtar, and avert an unthinkable catastrophe.

In them, Flynn has captured the secretive world of the fearless men and women, who, bound by duty, risk their lives in a covert war they must hide from even their own political leaders.

Now, Rapp and his protege, Mike Nash, may have met their match. The CIA has detected and intercepted two terrorist cells, but a third is feared to be on the loose. Led by a dangerous mastermind obsessed with becoming the leader of al Qaeda, this determined and terrifying group is about to descend on America.

Rapp needs the best on this assignment, and Nash, who has served his government honorably for sixteen years first as an officer in the Marine Corps and then as an operative in an elite counterterrorism team run by Rapp is his choice. Together, they have made careers out of meeting violence with extreme violence and have never wavered in the fight against the jihadists and their culture of death. Both have fought the war on terrorism in secret without accolades or acknowledgment of their personal sacrifices. Both have been forced to lie to virtually every single person they care about, and both have soldiered on with the knowledge that their hard work and lethal tactics have saved thousands of lives.

But the political winds have changed in America, and certain leaders on Capitol Hill are pushing to have men like Rapp and Nash put back on a short leash. And then one spring afternoon in Washington, DC, everything changes.

Using his insider knowledge of intelligence agencies and the military, Flynn once again delivers an all too real portrayal of a war that is that is waged every day by a handful of brave, devoted souls.

He wanted retribution. Six months of intense training has prepared him to bring the war to the enemy s doorstep, and he does so with brutal efficiency. Rapp starts in Istanbul, where he assassinates the Turkish arms dealer who sold the explosives used in the Pan Am attack.
