Good! I've read Ganymede, by Douglas. If times like these - where the U.S. may be draw into war because of politically biased intel analysis, Arab Spring revolutions, Israel & Iran, and Muslim/Christian conflict - are concering to you, I believe you will find this CIA case officer's role enthralling. I found it helpful to make notes of characters and their roles for reference later in the story - my memory ain't what it used to be. Hope this helps so you don't waste time reading what may not excite you.

Try The Gray Man by Mark Greaney, Eric L. Haney also has a fiction thriller out or Black Site by Dalton Fury. There is also the Kyle Swanson series by Jack Coughlin (ex-military sniper)

David L. Golemon has written several books that I totally enjoyed! He writes a series.. about a secret group.. called the "event group". You'll have to look him up to get the list of the books. I read them in the order that they were written. And, they were ALL page turners! I'm pretty sure he is retired military.

Barry Eisler (already mentioned) and Gayle Lynds are both ex-CIA and good thriller/espionage novelists.

LTC (R) Dave Grossman is both a psychologist and a former Army Ranger. He has two nonfiction books that are both revolutionary and instant classics, in my opinion. I read both of them while I was deployed and they really changed my outlook on the respective topics.

1. On Killing
2. On Combat

Thanks for the heads-up, Leonard. Grossman sounds like a good resource.
