about this item
THE KHUFRA RUNWhen a naked girl runs into the lights of Jack Nelson’s jeep, the freelance pilot finds himself submerged in the most perilous treasure hunt ever. On his side are the girl, Claire Bouvier and his best buddy Harry Turk, a tough fighter still scarred by the nightmare of Vietnam.
Waiting for them in the trackless wastes of the Khufra marshes are the ruthless Colonel Taleb of the local security police and his murderous Husa Horseman.
Only time will tell who will survive in the deadliest adventure of all.
A PRAYER FOR THE DYINGAn ex-IRA soldier must save a priest targeted for elimination to gain absolution for his violent past. Everyone has demons to overcome, but Martin Fallon has more than most. A ruthless hitman and executioner for the IRA, Fallon is haunted by a mistake that led to the explosion of a school bus full of children. When he's threatened by the sadistic Meehan brothers, Fallon must agree to one last hit. But this time there's a witness: a priest named Father De Costa. And when everyone else wants the Father dead, Fallon is determined to protect him, to earn redemption from his life of crime and forgiveness for the blood on his hands.
