Martial arts master, Lin Su Yoshimura, is a force to be reckoned with. Now in the U.S. after being shunned as a mixed race Chinese-Japanese girl then kidnapped as a teen and sold into the sex trafficking trade, Lin Su is rescued from an abusive New York pimp by one of the city’s top-level cocaine dealers. Navigating both back alleys and opulent venues with lethal grace, Lin Su finds her way forward through the underbelly of the city as she wrestles with the horrors of her past. When a disgraced ex-Special Forces officer convinces Lin Su and her rescuer boss to raid a notoriously brutal drug cartel deep in the Mexican jungle, she needs every survival skill she has ever learned to escape alive. Not everyone is so lucky. Pursued by the cartel, the mob, the Drug Enforcement Agency and a Muslim community activist and her own dark demons of the past, Lin Su’s time is running out. Will Lin Su Yoshimura be able to save the few people in her life that she has come to love? The stakes are high. Their lives hang in the balance.Show more
The battle for truth was only the beginning. Captain James Henry has finally gained what he long desired – redemption. Yet not even his restored military honors and reputation can wipe away the bitter taste in his mouth after fifteen years weighed down by guilt and shame. Whereas others now recognize him as a legitimate hero, all Jim sees when he looks at the man in the mirror is a coward. If he’d stood up for what was right in the first conflict, countless lives would’ve never been lost. But not even the truth will bring back the dead – or restore a shattered trust. Before deep-seated betrayal sends Jim to the bottom of another whiskey bottle, the past again rears its ugly head when the Shadow Wolf’s first mate is kidnapped by an unholy enemy alliance. To rescue her from their clutches, Jim swallows his injured pride and accepts assistance from an unlikely source. One that still reeks with the stench of duplicity. The fate of Jim’s first mate is sealed when treachery abounds from every galactic quadrant, and her very life is wrenched from her control for a more sinister intent. When captain and crew rush in to extract their comrade, they’ll face down an enemy they never saw coming – and suffer a soul-crushing loss. Can Jim overcome it all, and save his crew one more time?Show more

What once was his downfall becomes their saving grace. Hard-fought skirmishes leave Captain James Henry and the Shadow Wolf limping into Lusitania’s port. Payday awaits once the undercover operative is safely delivered planetside to brief authorities on the League of Sol’s activities within neutral territory. But Jim learned long ago never to take anything at face value. Especially with allies and enemies. The Lusitanian Parliament bombing left unknown survivors, requiring martial law until new elections restore the fractured government. Chaos is the order of the day, proving the League is more than making inroads in this sector of the galactic arm. Their advance is imminent. The only way to stop the League from invading is for the Shadow Wolf to make a break for Trinidad Station and muster an army of pirates and privateers. But convincing them to fight for something other than profit is a battle Jim isn’t sure he’ll win, especially when converting enemies to allies requires trust against a highly trained military machine. Now Captain Henry must marshal his former CDF experience to build a new coalition and outwit an enemy in a way they’ll never expect. He’ll change the rules of engagement – and take the fight to the League. If you love Babylon 5, The Expanse, and Destroyermen, you must listen to “Breach of Faith,” a space opera sci-fi series that will take you to the heart of duty, sacrifice, and the unseen scars of those who serve.Show more
