Larry Bond Books Overview

Dangerous Ground

The USS Memphis, a dilapidated submarine that should have been mothballed decades ago, has been given one last mission by the newly elected president. The task: To sneak illegally into Russia’s coastal waters and recon the leaking nuclear fuel containers hidden on the floor of the Arctic Ocean. More than just an environmental nightmare, this radioactive burial ground houses enough nuclear capability to destroy most of America s major cities.

The Memphis s commander, Lowell Hardy, had been looking forward to flag rank and pleasant duty upon the sub s decommissioning. Now he is trapped in an inconceivably dangerous and illegal mission that could easily end his career, if not his life and the lives of his crew. And it s the crew who feel Hardy s tension as he tyrannizes over everyone onboard in an effort to ensure they ll be ready for anything:

Jerry Mitchell: A former naval pilot with political connections, he is a novice submariner, unprepared for his demanding job as a weapons officer. Central to the Memphis s mission, Mitchell may be its greatest liability…
or its ultimate salvation.

Dr. Joanna Patterson: The senior civilian scientist, appointed by and reporting to the president, she is a world class expert on nuclear fuel contamination and every bit as demanding as Hardy. Patterson and her partner, Dr. Emily Davis, soon find themselves battling flaring tempers, faulty machinery, lethal radioactivity, and the raging Arctic seas.

The submariners: Seething with rage at their Captain Bligh like commander and the equally domineering Joanna Patterson, they are also at war with Jerry Mitchell and one another. Like the captain, they feel they deserve better, not this antiquated relic of a sub, not this hostile scientist, not this novice weapons officer, and definitely not this disastrously dangerous mission.

Nor is the mission what it seems. Lurking beneath the frigid, black, radioactive waters is a secret far more deadly than anything naval command could imagine a secret so menacing the Russian fleet is hell bent on destroying the Memphis and all who sail in her.

Cold Choices

Navy pilot turned submarine officer Jerry Mitchell is now the navigator aboard USS Seawolf. On a reconnaissance mission deep in the Barents Sea, Mitchell and his crew prepare to watch the Russian navy as it trains for battle. Although they are outside Russia’s territorial waters, the U.S. boat is ambushed by Russia s newest attack submarine, Severodvinsk. Its aggressive new captain, Aleksey Petrov, harasses the American intruder with dangerously fast, insanely close passes. The subs collide, and the Russian ship sinks to the bottom, crippled. Only Seawolf knows where Severodvinsk is, but the Russian authorities are too angry to listen to the Americans, even in matters of life and death. Mitchell and his shipmates must keep their own damaged vessel afloat, figure out a way to make the Russians listen, and keep the trapped submariners alive until they can be saved if that is even possible. Larry Bond uses his experience as an intelligence officer, warfare analyst, and antisubmarine technology specialist to give readers an expertly crafted techno thriller. Like Run Silent, Run Deep and The Hunt for Red October, Cold Choices takes readers deep into the minds of submariners and the treacherous world in which they dwell.

Red Phoenix

From the author who collaborated with Tom Clancy on Red Storm Rising, this is the book that dares to show us the military hardware, global upheavals, and raw combat a second Korean War would unleash. How F-16s would blast across the 38th Parallel. How ultra-modern submarines would vie for the seas. And how two armies would turn the snowfields of Asia red with blood. A thundering geopolitical thriller of vast scope, this is Red Phoenix – and a new standard for military/political suspense fiction.

‘A big, big book…
A superb storyteller…
Larry Bond seems to know everything about warfare, from the grunt in a foxhole to the fighter pilots far above the earth…
Red Phoenix is wonderfully entertaining and deserves to be the bestseller it is.’ – New York Times Book Review

‘Gripping…
masterfully accurate…
Mr. Bond is in complete command.’ – Baltimore Sun

‘Harrowingly real and persuasive.’ – Newsday

‘A direct hit! The techno-thriller has a new ace, and his name is Larry Bond.’ – Tom Clancy

Shadows of War

In the not too distant future, massive climate change has wracked the globe. China’s rice growing regions have been devastated by typhoons, while its western breadbasket is suffering from three years of drought. Riots threaten to tear the country apart. With the old guard Chinese government paralyzed by the crisis, a young, charismatic party leader steps to the fore. His solution to the unrest is a time tested one conquest of China s neighbors. And after that, the world. Josh MacArthur, a mild mannered American scientist studying climate change in northern Vietnam, is the only witness to a clever attempt by the Chinese to make it appear that Vietnam started the war. Escaping a massacre, he manages to gather critical evidence that could turn world opinion against China. Unfortunately, the Chinese learn of MacArthur s survival, and of the information he carries. A former Ch an fighting monk turned commando is sent to capture him. Mara Duncan, a CIA agent, is also on MacArthur s trail. The American scientist has become the subject of a deadly race in the jungles of northern Vietnam, with the fate of the world in his hands.

Edge of War

CIA officer Mara Duncan is on assignment in bomb-torn Hanoi. Her task: get scientist Josh MacArthur and a seven-year-old witness to Chinese atrocities in Vietnam out of the country safely. They are pursued by a relentless Chinese monk turned commando who can call on the entire Chinese secret service in Vietnam for help. Their escape is further complicated when SEALs, who are helping Mara, gun down Vietnamese soldiers, making them wanted by both China and Vietnam. Meanwhile, U.S. Army Advisor Zeus Murphy is given an impossible task: prevent the Chinese from landing on Vietnam’s coast. Heeding the President’s advice to ‘think outside the box,’ he concocts a daring mission into the heart of the Chinese fleet in the harbor at Hainan. This operation will go down in the annals of SpecWar history as either one of the most daring triumphs of all time or one of the most foolish suicide raids ever attempted. Or maybe both.

Shock of War

Under secret orders from the President, U.S. Army Major Zeus Murphy sabotages a Chinese invasion fleet on the eve of its assault against Vietnam. But after Murphy and fellow officer Win Christian are trapped behind enemy lines, Christian’s erratic behavior gives them away. The pair shoot their way out of a Chinese airport terminal, hijack a bus, then barely escape two truckloads of soldiers before disappearing into the night. Thus starts Zeus Murphy s personal odyssey in the latest installment of the Red Dragon Rising series. Back in America, President Chester Greene fails to convince Congress that the Chinese invasion of Vietnam is the first step in a plan to rule Asia and eventually go to war with the U.S. Not even the Pentagon will support the President; top ranking officers do everything they can to sabotage his orders. After Zeus and Christian dodge a Chinese armored division and return to Vietnam, Zeus proposes a plan to blunt the tank attack. His commanding officer orders him to stand down. Zeus disobeys in an effort to help the Vietnamese woman he s fallen in love with. Win Christian goes with him to prove he s not a coward within hours, both men are alone with a company of Vietnamese soldiers on the border, staring down the barrels of Chinese main battle tanks as they drive on Haiphong, starting a countdown to all out war with the West. In Larry Bond’s Red Dragon Rising: Shock of War, New York Times bestselling authors Larry Bond and Jim DeFelice imagine a horrifying near future immersed in global war.

The Enemy Within

What if a foreign rogue nation launched a war against the United States within its own borders? America’s largest cities are in flames. Its majestic landmarks are in ruins. Electronic sabotage cripples its far flung communications systems. Race battles against race in a raging civil conflagration. The first waves of a meticulously orchestrated international terrorist campaign have achieved a stunning and terrifying success. As grim national leaders hunker down with advisors, as the finest living minds in strategic intelligence together with state of the art computers link up to search out and destroy the source of the savagery, as armies both with and without uniforms mobilize to win the ultimate unconventional war, two men once friends, now adversaries to the death race to a decisive confrontation. On one side is General Amir Taleh, an implacable foe of the United States, a nimble survivor of the brutal cross currents of Iran’s internal politics, and a shrewd fighter who believes that killing for revenge is pointless but killing for a higher purpose is justified. Opposing him are two American operatives who become tactical allies as well as unexpected lovers: Colonel Peter Thorn, the Delta Force veteran who has faced down the masters of terror on foreign soil and now feels powerless to defeat them at home; and Special Agent Helen Gray, as beautiful as she is a formidable player in the old boy network of special operations. Together, they must find a way to defeat Taleh and his forces before the West awakens to its greatest nightmare of all.

Day of Wrath

Prince Ibrahim al Saud is a member of the Saudi royal family and a brilliant international businessman with a personal fortune worth billions of dollars. He is also the world’s most dangerous terrorist, having purchased nuclear weapons from Russia’s corrupt military. Only two people stand in his way: U.S. Army Colonel Peter Thorn and FBI Special Agent Helen Gray. Following a trail that leads from the former Soviet Union, across Europe, and finally to America, the two find themselves hunted by the very people they’re trying to protect…
and time is running out.

Fires of War (With: Jim DeFelice)

Larry Bond, New York Times bestselling author of Dangerous Ground, and Jim DeFelice have earned widespread acclaim for the gritty authenticity and spellbinding suspense of their military political adventures involving the First Team. ‘The Team lead by top CIA officer Bob Ferguson, and supported by Special Forces commando Stephen Rankin and Marine Jack Young, is authorized to take immediate action, beyond the bureaucratic restraints of US intelligence or the military establishment, in the ever surprising War on Terror.

This sudden change in policy has the US suspicious, and the Team is dispatched to uncover the truth. Newest Team operative, the young and beautiful Thera Majed, goes undercover during the preliminary inspections of the entire Korean peninsula, on a mission so sensitive that she will be disavowed if discovered. But when she discovers hidden weapons in South Korea, a firestorm of debate is set off in Washington. A public announcement of their suspicions could derail the North Korean agreement, and the South Korean government may not even be aware of the weapons’ existence. Ferg and the rest of the Team jump in to investigate, and the closer they get to the truth, the harder mysterious forces work to keep them away. Someone is planning for a full scale nuclear attack that would throw the civilized world into political and economic upheaval, and Ferg and the Team are the only ones in the position to stop them.

There is just one problem: no one has seen the man in over ten years, and he is only known by a decades old code name: T Rex. This assassin has been involved in the murder of at least a dozen prominent western leaders, and the grapevine reveals he’s been called out of a long, silent hiding for one more major strike. Ferg and the Team arrive in Italy, where they recruit the help of a beautiful French Samaritan named Jane Foucoult. Her knowledge leads them on a search that goes behind the scenes of a conference on genetics and onto a trail to a sinister Russian scientist, a leader at the forefront of biological weapons research. Splitting the team in two, Ferg and Guns go after the ghosts they speculate could be T Rex, and Rankin and Thera get on the scientist’s tail. But what they uncover is way beyond a single assassination attempt, and they find themselves about to go head to head with the most lethal terrorist cells known to man.

Vortex

The Mighty Fallen: Our Nation’s Greatest War Memorials

The Mighty Fallen is a beautiful, evocative presentation of more than 150 never before seen photographs of the nation’s greatest monuments and war memorials, along with text that describes the memorials and tells their stories. This extraordinary collection calls attention to the power of memory and the ways in which we immortalize people and events. As Larry Bond notes in the Introduction, ‘Memories of a war or battle are unpleasant, but few veterans would want them erased.’ This book is a unique tribute to veterans and a commemoration of some of the most significant conflicts in our history.

Most battlefields leave little record of the historic confrontations that occurred there. Those who fought in epic struggles want us to remember not just the outcome, but the cost of victory and those who paid the price for the freedoms we enjoy today. Memories fade, so we raise monuments of stone and bronze to carry their message of sacrifice through the centuries.

The Iwo Jima Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC are instantly recognizable, but there are monuments all over North America honoring more than 300 years of military service. The Mighty Fallen shows you hundreds of monuments, memorials, and statues conveying the message their designers wanted you to hear these are more than just a date and location.
