April 2021 Reading List

This month’s reading list selections consist of books I used to research THE DEVIL’S HAND.  This fourth novel in the James Reece series was research intensive as I stepped into the mind of a terrorist.  The basis of the book centers around what the enemies of the United States have learned by watching us on the field of battle for the past twenty years at war.  If I was a senior level intelligence or military strategist in Iran, Russia, China, North Korea, or a supper-empowered individual or a leader in a terrorist organization, what lessons would I have taken and applied to future battle plans?  That question formed the foundation of THE DEVIL’S HAND.

Does this list of books give you any additional insight into THE DEVIL’S HAND?
