Red Swan Audiobook

Red Swan

Author: P.T. Deutermann Narrator: Dick Hill Release Date: October 2017

Set in contemporary Washington, DC, Red Swan begins with an ominous phone call from Carson McGill, the deputy director of operations in the CIA, to retired CIA officer Preston Allender: Henry Wallace is dead.A behind-the-scenes operator at the CIA, Wallace was integral to the agency's secret war against China's national intelligence service, which infiltrates government and military offices, major businesses, and systems crucial to our security. Wallace had severely damaged China's Washington spy ring with a devastating ruse, a so-called "black swan," in which a deep-undercover female agent targeted and destroyed a key Chinese official. Now, Wallace's mysterious death suggests that the CIA itself has been compromised and that China has someone inside the agency.But as Allender quietly investigates, he makes a shocking discovery that will upend the entire American intelligence apparatus. For Wallace's black swan operation may have been turned against the CIA; a red swan is flying and the question is who is she, what is her target, and where will she land?

The Commodore Audiobook

The Commodore

Author: P.T. Deutermann Narrator: Dick Hill Release Date: August 2016

A Navy destroyer commander navigates hostile seas and ferocious battles in this dramatic World War II thriller set in the South Pacific. In The Commodore, the Navy in 1942-1943 is fighting a losing battle against Japan for control of the Solomon Islands. Vice Admiral William "Bull" Halsey is tasked to change the course of the war. Halsey, a maverick, goes on the offensive and appoints a host of new destroyer commanders, including a wildcard named Harmon Wolf. An American Indian from a Minnesota reservation, Wolf has never fit in with the traditional Navy officer corps. But under Halsey, Wolf's aggressive tactics and gambling nature bring immediate results, and he is swiftly promoted to commodore of an entire destroyer squadron. What happens next will change Wolf's life, career, and the fate of his ships forever. An epic story of courage, disaster, survival, and triumph that culminates in the pivotal battle of Vella Gulf, The Commodore is a masterful novel of an unlikely military hero. "Deutermann's experience as a US Navy captain informs this engrossing novel set in the Pacific theater during WWII...Deutermann handles the human-interest aspects well, but it's his battle sequences on the high seas that stand out. Fans of military action thrillers will race through the pages and finish the book wanting more."-Publishers Weekly (starred and boxed review)

Cold Frame Audiobook

Cold Frame

Author: P.T. Deutermann Narrator: Dick Hill Release Date: December 2015

The downtown area of today's Washington, DC, has become an armed camp. Men with assault rifles crouch on top of monuments and buildings. Antimissile sites bristle on the White House roof. Meter maids carry Glocks and tactical radios, all in the name of federal CT: counterterrorism. In Cold Frame, the dramatic new thriller by P. T. Deutermann, a secret committee of government and civilian officials maintains a list known as the Kill List, which targets overseas threats to America for termination. When a senior bureaucrat who is part of the Kill List process dies in Washington under mysterious circumstances that include a beautiful woman, a glass of wine, and a bouquet of flowers, Metro detective Av Smith is tasked to investigate. Smith and his fellow detectives soon find themselves besieged by a hornet's nest of intrigue and deception. With the aid of an FBI agent and a reclusive scientist who nurtures unusual interests, Av digs deeper into the mystery-only to become the target of a plan that reaches into the highest levels of the federal government and far exceeds the mission of the Kill List itself. Set in contemporary Washington, DC, amid the Byzantine counterterrorism bureaucracy, Cold Frame is a compelling thriller by a masterful novelist whose insider knowledge of how the military, federal, and local intelligence agencies work-or don't-illuminates the dark world of Washington's war on terror. "Fascinating...a compellingly realistic view of counterterrorism."-Booklist

Sentinels of Fire Audiobook

Sentinels of Fire

Author: P.T. Deutermann Narrator: Dick Hill Release Date: July 2014

P. T. Deutermann’s World War II thrillers Pacific Glory and Ghosts of Bungo Suido have been acclaimed for their gripping action scenes, memorable characters, and realistic depictions of the United States Navy at war in the Pacific theater. Now, in Sentinels of Fire, Deutermann tells the dramatic tale of a lone destroyer, the USS Malloy, defending itself against unrelenting kamikaze attack in the desperate battle for Okinawa. By the spring of 1945, the once-mighty Japanese fleet has been virtually destroyed, leaving Japan open to invasion. Japan responds by dispatching hundreds of suicide bombers against the Allied fleet surrounding Okinawa. Patrolling miles off the coast, the USS Malloy is part of a squadron of ships assigned to warn the carrier formations closer to the island of impending kamikaze attack. Executive Officer Connie Miles begins to realize that Malloy’s much-admired Captain Tallmadge is losing his mind under the relentless pressure of the attacks. Facing multiple kamikaze and torpedo assaults each day, and watching their squadron diminish as ship after ship is destroyed, Miles and the ship’s junior officers grapple with the consequences of losing their skipper’s guidance—and perhaps the ship itself and everyone on board. Authentic, exciting, and emotionally wrenching, Sentinels of Fire is military adventure at its best, by an author whose career as a Navy captain informs the entire novel.

Ghosts of Bungo Suido Audiobook

Ghosts of Bungo Suido

Author: P.T. Deutermann Narrator: Dick Hill Release Date: July 2013

A thrilling WWII adventure set in a submarine in the Pacific, by the Boyd Award-winning author of Pacific Glory In late 1944, America’s naval forces face what seems an insurmountable threat from Japan: immense Yamato-class battleships, which dwarf every other ship at sea. Built in secrecy, these ships seem invincible, and lay waste to any challengers. American military intelligence knows of two such ships, but there is rumored to be a third, a newly-built aircraft carrier, ready to launch from Japan’s heavily-defended and mined Inland Sea. Such a ship would threaten U.S. Pacific forces, allow Japan to launch air attacks against the U.S. mainland, and change the course of the war. No American submarine has penetrated the Inland Sea; five boats and their crews have perished in the Bungo Suido strait. Lieutenant Commander Gar Hammond — an aggressive, attacking leader with a reckless streak — is now captain of a new submarine. Hammond may be the navy’s only hope to locate and stop the Japanese super-ship before it launches . . . if it even exists. P.T. Deutermann’s previous World War II adventure, Pacific Glory, won acclaim from readers and reviewers, and was honored with the W. Y. Boyd Literary Award for Excellence in Military Fiction, administered by the American Library Association. In Ghosts of Bungo Suido, Deutermann presents another sweeping, action-filled WWII novel, based on a true event from the Pacific theater.

The Last Man Audiobook

The Last Man

Author: P.T. Deutermann Narrator: Christopher Lane Release Date: May 2012

In a desert wasteland, framed by the shimmering fastness of the Judean Hills, lie the ruins of the fortress called Masada. Overlooking the Dead Sea and the salt mines that were once Sodom and Gomorrah, the stone palaces of Herod brood a thousand feet above the desolate countryside, where the Jewish revolt against Rome of 70 AD ended in the self-immolation of 960 people. According to legend, the defenders of Masada, rather than be taken prisoner by the Roman Tenth Legion, killed themselves, their wives, and their children the night before the Romans took the fortress. David Hall, an American nuclear engineer, arrives in Israel on a mission of truth. Believing that the defenders killed themselves to protect a great secret, Hall plans to explore the heavily guarded site and, he hopes, discover the real reasons behind the dramatic end of the Roman siege. Hall is shadowed by an Israeli archaeologist, Judith Ressner, an attractive but reserved professor with an agenda of her own. There is more than history hidden within the mountain, and Hall soon finds himself the target of ferocious Israeli security forces bent on defeating his quest, who will stop at nothing to protect Masada from intruders. Combining dynamic history with a highly charged contemporary story of adventure and espionage, The Last Man is a thought-provoking thriller of the Middle East, past and present.

The Moonpool Audiobook

The Moonpool

Author: P.T. Deutermann Narrator: Mel Foster Release Date: May 2008

I remembered it from high school chemistry, one of those experiments where we made hydrogen. It was more of an acidic sensation on the palate than a real smell, but I recognized it. The pile of spent fuel at the bottom was beginning to outgas. Next would come the fire to end all fires.... A private detective working in Wilmington, North Carolina, is found dead in a gas-station restroom, apparently poisoned. But when her body sets off radiation alarms in the pathologist's office, suspicion falls on the nearby Helios nuclear power plant, a heavily guarded facility with supposedly fail-safe procedures. As the FBI, local police, and the power plant's own security team investigate, ex-cop Cam Richter, head of the agency that employed the dead woman, begins his own inquiries. What was his detective investigating? And how could one person be poisoned by radiation without others being exposed? Cam soon finds himself up against powerful forces that will stop at nothing to keep the plant's problems secret. The most vulnerable part of Helios is its "moonpool" - the radioactive storage pond that cools spent but volatile reactor fuel and must be kept completely full. Racing against time, Cam discovers an inside threat, a plan to use the plant's own systems to begin an unstoppable, disastrous sequence of events.
