Real CIA Thrillers

Mark's interest in spies and spy planes began when Francis Gary Powers, the U-2 pilot shot down over the Soviet Union, splashed onto the headlines. He graduated from The Hardy Boys to read everything from Alistair MacLean, Ian Fleming, and John le Carré. So when he started to write novels, it was a natural fit to see his protagonist as a pilot working for the CIA, flying a little-known spy plane to get deep behind enemy lines and hunt down the world's worst terrorists. 

His Duncan Hunter books reflect his experiences as well as his love for all things aviation. He flew the fighter jet of his childhood dreams, the venerable F-4 Phantom II, while in the U.S. Marine Corps. He served in senior leadership positions with the Marines, the U.S. Border Patrol, and the U.S. Air Force before leading aviation activities and aircraft operations for international corporations in the Washington D.C. area. Mark is currently an aviation consultant in high demand and the author of over thirty articles.

He also served as an Assistant Professor for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University teaching graduate-level aviation-related courses. He earned a Master of Arts degree in National Security and Strategic Studies from the Naval War College and holds an MBA in Aviation from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

“Duncan Hunter is a great character… an excellent read.” –A Good Thriller

Basking in the glory of killing Osama bin Laden, the President revealed that US Navy SEALs carried out the mission. His constant heralding of their heroism and capabilities damaged the SEAL's operational security, revealed tricks of their trade, and endangered them and their families. As some in the Special Operations community expected and feared, a number of SEALs are systematically killed across the country. The Navy's legendary SEAL commander, Captain Bill McGee, believes he is the next target of a sniper and seeks help from a close friend with unusual contacts and capabilities.

Duncan Hunter, a retired Marine Corps fighter pilot, flies a top-secret airplane with his mentor, Greg Lynche, the sometimes über-liberal retired CIA Chief of Air Branch. Together, in their quiet airplane, they execute some of the CIA's most sensitive airborne counterterrorism missions under a Special Access Program. Saving McGee from a sniper's bullet comes at a price as Duncan Hunter finds himself at the crossroads - either remain a contract pilot and betray a friend or become a patriot and risk exposure as a traitor. His decision pulls him into one intrigue after another, finally revealing the truth behind several conspiracies hidden behind the firewalls of top-secret security clearances, CIA files, and Special Access Programs.

“A great techno-thriller, part of a series, but standalone so you don't have to have read every preceding volume to follow the action.” –Pat Ingram Reviews, on Shoot Down

Shortly after takeoff, a jumbo jet explodes over the waters of Long Island. Witnesses claim the aircraft was shot down by a surface-to-air missile; the government insists a mechanical malfunction brought down the airplane. An old CIA file is uncovered which details the President was warned-to preclude commercial airliners from being shot out of the sky either pay a ransom or suffer the consequences.

Just as the Agency identifies the shadowy man responsible for the shoot-down of the airliner, the Libyan dictator Gaddafi is overthrown, sparking a race between the CIA and terrorist networks to win the ultimate terrorist prize-hundreds of man-portable, shoulder-launched, anti-aircraft missiles.

Duncan Hunter and his top-secret airplane once again team up with an expert crew to find the anti-aircraft missiles ahead of the al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood and kill the man who shoots down airliners for profit.

A major security breach finds the CIA's closest secrets divulged and dozens of their highly-placed spies exposed and killed. As the Agency investigates the source of the disclosures, an old Office of Strategic Services file and the former Director of Central Intelligence become the focal point of their research. A race is on to find the file's secrets. If al-Qaeda's wins, they can acquire "suitcase" thermonuclear devices to attack America. If the CIA gets there first, they can make a deal with a Russian billionaire and trade the missing treasure for the weapons al-Qaeda craves.

The political awakening of Duncan Hunter continues as he battles radical fundamentalists across the globe, he thwarts the terrorists' best plans and eliminates their leaders. He survived their latest attempts to kill him when he's finally cornered, captured, and dragged to an al-Qaeda lair. Inside lurks certain doom at the hand of his bitterest foe.
