Mailbox Monday time again! And January’s host is Lori’s Reading Corner.

I know better than to go to the library book sale … but I went 🙂 Got some good older books 🙂

Don't Say a Word  The Third Secret  The Pillars of the Earth  The Negotiator The Unspoken Hot Blooded Bonnie Eve Quinn The Sigma Protocol Obstruction of Justice Writ of Execution Undone All Fall Down


And I also got one review book:

Black Ops Section 8

Section 8: The Men and women called upon by The Organization to do the impossible. They are the soldiers who have nothing to lose. They make up a top-secret unit tasked with what others call suicide missions.

The Organization pulled strings long before the founding of the United States. It dates back to the destruction of the Knights Templar and even further in history. As secrets from the Golden Lilly Operation and the infamous Unit 731 from World War II become exposed, you have to wonder who the real enemy is.

Captain Jim Vaughn is an officer in disgrace. Commanding a Special Forces mission to rescue hostages in the Philippines, Vaughn’s team is destroyed, and when the smoke clears, he is the one made the scapegoat. Forced into the shadows by the scandal, Vaughn is offered a chance to redeem himself when he is approached by an enigmatic government agent working for The Organization looking for a few desperate men.

Vaughn is shocked to meet his new teammates, a group of men and women outside of the regular chain of command. These are soldiers who have used up all their second chances. These are men and women who have crossed the line one too many times. Drug users. Felons. The terminally ill. These are now the soldiers that Vaughn must trust with his life. Even with a traitor in their ranks. But is the traitor actually the patriot?

This group of misfits has been assembled for two reasons – they are skilled, and they are expendable. These are the kinds of men and women who are needed to attempt missions the government can’t acknowledge, the country can’t condone, and the team cannot fail. But the deeper Vaughn gets into the unique group, the more he realizes that The Organization may be concealing more than the rap sheets of its most unusual operators. A team of such unique properties is the perfect tool to use against America’s enemies … and possibly America itself.

  1. You did do well at your library book sale. i have missed the one at my library, but it was probably a good thing as my shelves are over flowing already.

  2. Haha, well my library has two each year, one in January and one in July. I missed last July’s (which really wasn’t such a bad thing) but definitely made up for it this time around 🙂
