Running the Maze
Donald A. Davis
In the aftermath of great floods, a doctor on a relief mission in northeastern Pakistan discovers the remains of a collapsed bridge that reminds him of a bridge near his childhood home in Ohio.Ã¿He snaps a cellphone picture and sends it to his sister-just before his entire team is slaughtered.
His sister is Beth Ledford, a Coast Guard sniper, who suspects that the answer to the mystery of her brother's deathÃ¿is in that cellphone picture.Ã¿ No one believes her until she finds Kyle Swanson, once the top sniper in the Marine Corps and now the key member of a secret special operations team known as Task Force Trident. When Kyle takes Beth into Pakistan to investigate, they find the true secret behind the mass murder-what may be the last, best hope of victory by al-Qaeda and the Taliban over allied forces.
Now theÃ¿two snipers have their sights set on one man, an American diplomat who has become the biggest obstacle to victory in the war on terror.Ã¿ The only question is: which of them gets to pull the trigger?
AJ is one of the best runners in his school - which is one of the best athletics training grounds in the world. He's devastated when his parents suddenly move him to cold, wet London, and he finds himself facing a very alien life, and hostility from the school bully. When the bully's father, a washed-up drinker who used to be a runner, takes an interest in AJ's training, it might make all the difference to AJ - or it might just make things a lot worse.
