#1 New York Times bestseller Mark Greaney - RED METAL
Don't miss #1 New York Times bestseller Mark Greaney share from RED METAL, a stunningly realistic new World War III novel and his first standalone novel co-written with active duty Marine, Lt. Col. Hunter Ripley Rawlings IV. In the course of his research for the Gray Man and Jack Ryan novels, Greaney has traveled to more than fifteen countries and trained alongside military and law enforcement in the use of firearms, battlefield medicine, and close-range combative tactics. During one of those research trips in Washington, D.C., Mark met Rawlings who was giving Mark a tour of the Pentagon. A shared interest in military fiction led to a friendship and over coffee, not long after, as Mark puts it: "Rip and I both agreed that a modern conflict between two super powers in Europe would make a heck of a story, so we begin talking it over. Mark was so excited about the project that he and Rip wrote up a 91-chapter outline and sent it to my agent and my editor.
About RED METAL
A desperate Kremlin takes advantage of a military crisis in Asia to simultaneously strike Western Europe and invade East Africa in a bid to occupy a rare mineral mine that will give Russia unprecedented control over the world’s hi-tech sector. The Russian bear has awakened. Their tanks race across Poland crushing all opposition on a headlong dash for the heart of Germany. Satellite killing missiles blind American forces while Spetznatz teams destroy Allied communications relays. It's all part of a master plan to confuse and defeat America and her allies. RED METAL features not only members of the U.S. and Russian military, but also an international cast of characters from all sides to fully examine the conflict.
