(John Harding Series - Book I)  Click HERE to purchase

A young teen boy in Leavittsburg, Ohio grew up mean. He ran away from his alcoholic father at the age of fourteen. An old man in Texas takes an interest in him, helping the runaway get a new identity. The boy becomes John Harding. Harding joins the Marine Corps with his new identity, looking for a chance to get an education and start over. While in special ops overseas, he's recruited by a CIA agent who sees something in Harding besides his knack for languages and combat skill. Denny Strobert knows he's found a killer.

HARDCASE begins in a back alley warehouse in East Oakland, CA, where Harding fights for money, and to keep his skills honed, coupled with the fact he likes it. Harding does odd jobs with the only guy he trusts implicitly, his handler and manager, Tommy Sands. They bodyguard, escort tourists around the Bay Area, and do bail bond, skip trace work for a lawyer named Tess Connagher.

Two events throw Harding's seamy life in the shadows out into the light. Strobert is ordered to enlist Tess Connagher's law firm to act as an intermediary with Harding in order to protect an outspoken Afghani woman whose family Harding protected long ago. The woman's father requested him, and the state department realizes they'll be off the hook if anything happens to Samira Karim while under Harding's care. Secondly, Harding fights a particularly brutal fight with a Russian mob backed fighter named Van Rankin who hates Harding. They'd had words. The YouTube video of Harding's subsequent beat-down of Rankin goes viral along with many of his prior fights. When Rankin's Russian mobster backer, Alexi Fiialkov pushes for a rematch on the UFC circuit, CIA Agent Strobert sees infinite possibilities since the United Arab Emirates has part ownership in the UFC. Some matches would be taking place in Dubai, where the CIA knows targets of opportunity show up from time to time.

"John Harding takes no prisoners. He's a cage fighter who plays by the rules unless it's necessary to break them along with a few other things. The fast-paced dialogue fits the no holds barred action that pits Harding against terrorists, the Russian Mafia, and guys who just don't like his attitude or his prowess in the ring. This cool story interweaves Harding's personal life with his kick-boxing life as well as a little CIA covert action thrown in. This one delivers a terrific knock-out punch and you'll love every minute of it."- ????? by Gayle Pool

Hard Case Book IV - A Violent Life blends horror, humor, terror, and cage fighting as John Harding's crew of killers battle against a deadly bio weapon attack. They know thousands of lives hang in the balance, and they have no qualms about doing anything it takes to stop it. 

The approaching holidays find John Harding's West Coast Murderers' Row crew in the usual Las Vegas double duty mission. John takes on a rising star in the UFC world nicknamed Rattler, because of snake fast striking ability. On the flip side, Denny Strobert turns the crew loose on a lady drug queen, Victoria Lydia Voltaire. She plans to use her drug network to aid and supply a Muslim Brotherhood offshoot setting up terrorist cells across the country. 

Thanks to Lynn Montoya, nicknamed Cruella Deville, the crew gets a bonus when she initiates a plan to lure the Muslim Brotherhood gang readying to be dispersed across the nation into a public trap. A successful sting leads out in spiraling directions with terrorist plots involving Alexi Fiialkov's container shipping line. Soon, the crew launches a rescue mission for Fiialkov's granddaughter, and entraps the architect of a weaponized anthrax threat. The kid gloves are off, and the bodies begin piling up. 

Add in a taste of what happens when Murderers' Row decides to end an infamous start of the 'Knockout Game' in Oakland, and another excursion to help their 'Hollywood Bounty Hunters' reality show favorites take down a deadly assassin returning to our shores - all happening around the holidays, and a dreaded return visit by the in-laws to the Harding household. It's business and humor as usual, but with a final cage rematch like no other.

This action-packed, suspense-filled police story begins with a bit of righteous vigilant justice: After rescuing four kidnapped children from kiddie porn dealers, (he brutally executes the three kidnappers), the duo is pulled to desk duty and required to go through psychological evaluation. The straight-and-narrow psychologist has concerns about Connor's readiness to return to duty, so when their boss clears them for duty she decided to ride along.

Ex-Ranger Connor Bradwick and his partner, Ellie James, are an Oakland PD patrol team who care about the people of their community. They are tired of the bad guys trying to take over their turf.

Tired of picking up criminals just to have them released, Bradwick devises a plan of proactive patrolling. When parolees are released in their area, they will monitor the criminals' known places of business to catch them in the act or deter them from doing business. Their very first effort nets them an arrest and everything, both good and bad, snowballs from that point. Elle has a smart attitude bigger than her six-foot-plus partner. Connor brings his experience as a soldier to the streets. Julie, the psychologist, finds herself more involved with this dynamic duo than she ever dreamed possible.

They needed a monster to get a little girl back. They imprisoned him for the way he did it. Now they need the monster again to do what he does best. FBI Special Agent Diane Reskova waited with her team for a tracker to arrive on site in the Caribou Wilderness of California. A psychopath pursued unsuccessfully for two years by Reskova’s team had kidnapped California Senator Fred Hokanson’s niece, dragging her into the surrounding mountains. Hokanson recruits Jeremiah McDaniels unbeknownst to Reskova as the tracker. McDaniels, a Delta Force Colonel with CIA background, leads the FBI agents after Hughes. Ditching Reskova and her team, McDaniels saves Hokanson’s niece and beheads her kidnapper, Stanton Hughes.

After an off-hand remark McDaniels makes concerning a movie while accepting blame for the Hughes’ fiasco, the press label him ‘Cold Mountain’. Taken into custody on Reskova’s orders, McDaniels avoids prison by public outcry and Senator Hokanson’s intervention. With Hokanson’s shadowy sponsorship, McDaniels becomes the enforcement arm of Reskova’s team. With Kumar Rasheed, an Iraqi whose family McDaniels had saved during the second Iraq war, McDaniels supplies Reskova with a weapon she has neither asked for nor condones.

Funneled between America and Iraq, McDaniels stays one step ahead of American bureaucrats more interested in appearances than the safety of the country. Reskova, at first repulsed by McDaniels’ methods, soon embraces both the enigmatic McDaniels and his tactics. Reskova threads McDaniels and his Iraqi comrade Kumar Rasheed into her anti-terrorism unit with murderous result. McDaniels’ background and deadly skills become a point of fascination for the bewildered Reskova as her attraction to McDaniels quickly rivals her dedication to the FBI.
