  • The Black Berets have met the enemy—and he lives next door!

    Letting a struggling Chicano gas company run its pipeline across their Louisiana land struck the Black Berets as a good idea—especially once Cowboy got an eyeball on Isabella Cifuentes, its stunning, sultry president. But the contract, it seemed, contained some very fine and lethal print.

    A Texas oil magnate allied with a fanatical right-wing cult had made an unholy alliance to keep the territory free of Mexicans and competition—even if it meant taking his grievance to the people next door.

    But when your neighbors happen to be a quintet of renegade warriors, your backyard may become a burying ground … and the bone you came to pick may just turn out to be your own!

  • The Black Berets learned their lethal skills on the secret battlefields of Vietnam. In this classic novel of wartime adventure, once the Black Berets start fighting for themselves, what will it take to be able to stop them?

    They were the most elite team of interservice fighters America’s government had ever formed. As war raged in Vietnam, the Black Berets took on the most secret—and most heinous—of covert operations. Now they’re back, and they have a new mission.

    Eight years after their bloody exploits across the battlefields of Asia, the five-man team is reunited at the behest of their scheming CIA handler, a man none of them trusts after a dirty war of lies and betrayals. However, word has it one of their own, thought long-dead, is alive and being held prisoner in Laos. Shaking off the cobwebs of civilian life, the Black Berets must re-hone their skills to become a flawless killing machine once more. Eager to get back in the game, they’re ready for action. But who can they really trust?

  • The Black Berets have fought for their country, for money, and for thrills … now they’re fighting for cold vengeance, as the classic series of wartime adventure continues.

    They’d survived everything the Vietcong could throw at them. Now they’d throw it back … at the American renegade who’d betrayed them.

    The Black Berets had to hand it to Parkes, their former CIA case officer. First he’d sent them on a suicide mission to Vietnam. Then he’d sent some CIA hitmen to finish them off when the enemy couldn’t. And the moment they set foot stateside, the world’s meanest mercenaries found that Parkes had arranged another lethal welcome.

    Well, they’d never liked Parkes much. But how were they going to tell him? First they had to find him, and that would take Beeker, Rosie, Cowboy, Harry, and Marty, from the bayous of Louisiana to an academy of terror in the Libyan desert, where they’d get a chance to say just what they had in mind—with bullets and a body bag.

  • A band of terrorists in a Caribbean paradise are up against the Black Berets, the deadliest fighters on the planet!

    The Black Palm called themselves a nation, though their own people had cast them out. They called themselves an army, but made war on unarmed men, women and children. And in their fanatical crusade, they might strike anywhere. Even in the tiny Caribbean republic of New Neuzen.

    The only thing that stood between New Neuzen and a terrorist bloodbath were five American tourists. Those tourists happened to be the Black Berets, the dirtiest—and deadliest—warriors on earth. And they had not come to New Neuzen for a vacation. Unless your idea of a holiday is total war!
