|US Special Operatives are forces whose extreme stealth and clandestine methods allow
them to conduct strategic missions for or against targets that larger forces cannot approach
undetected. And then there are "Ghost Warriors" or Black Ops, among the most elite of Ops,
men who for all intents and purposes do not exist, entrusted with missions of the utmost
urgency to the US, sent on a moment's notice around the world to rectify dire situations that
imperil national security or the welfare of foreign nations or its people. These ghosts in the
night are almost never seen or heard, usually operating under the cover of darkness.
The legendary Silk Road, the trade route of Marco Polo traversed for centuries from East to
West, is now being paved with a new form of contraband. The Wall of the Cold War has
crumbled, allowing some of the most compact and powerful of weapons to disappear on to a
black market littered with mafias, mercenaries and terrorists. It's the new Nuke Road,
shadowed by the ancient staples of gold and blood. Along that road, the Ghost Warrior,
Boots, is ordered on a covert mission to single-handedly retrieve the weapons. It doesn't
matter who stole the weapons or where they're going. If the US dosent stop them , then we will have failed and the price of failure will be more than we can endure, devastation beyond belief....
"PJ Wilcox's riveting book about his friend, Boots, reads like a James Bond novel
except this story paints a picture that coincides so closely with reality, making truth
from fiction nearly indistinguishable. Boots is a brazen and courageous Ghost Warrior
who risks his life attempting to retrieve briefcases loaded with nuclear devices. As Chief U.S. Negotiator for the START Treaty, I periodically
reexamined photos of Nagasaki and Hiroshima to remind me of their immense destructive
power, so knowing what was at risk with this Black Op's mission is nearly unfathomable,
but it makes for a spellbinding read. Wilcox truly writes like one in the know. I hope
to read more about this Ghost Warrior's missions."
- Former Ambassador & Lieutenant General (ret.) Edward L. Rowny.
Rowny was former Joint Chiefs of Staff Representative for Strategic Arms Limitation Talks
(SALT II). He honorably served five Presidents including serving as Special Advisor for
Arms Control to Presidents Reagan and Bush and was Chief Negotiator for Strategic Arms
Reduction Talks (START).
Unsealed: Islamabad is fiction because it has to mask a variety of details and procedures
used in covert operations that are not necessarily available in the public domain. Sufficient
care has been taken to make the details as real and relevant as possible without needing to
delineate the authorities responsible for the directives involved in carrying out these missions.
To achieve this, a certain level of omission occurred to take the factual narrative beyond the
true events themselves so they emerge as fiction.
The Red Mole
CIA Double Agent: The True Story of an International Journalist Turned Spy
The Red Mole is the true, authorized biography of the amazing life of an international journalist, Mariusz "David" Dastych
who was a Cold War double agent -- Polish intelligence working for the CIA. In a warped twist of fate, in 1987, Dastych was
arrested on trumped up charges of abetting Japanese intelligence and sent to a harsh, Soviet prison. He calculated that his
only chance of survival was to admit that he'd been a CIA spy for over a decade so that that he might be exchanged in a swap.
But before that came to pass, the Wall fell, and David was released under political amnesty. Before long, he was tracking
the black market for nuclear weapons seeping through the seams of the former Soviet Union, posing as a facilitator for
Mid-East terrorists including Saddam Hussein's regime and more. The Red Mole is the true story of Dastych's amazing life,
a spellbinding story of courage, betrayals, honor -- and the perseverance of the human spirit.

What People Have To Say About Smokey Joe & The General:
"The remarkable General Edward Rowny has written the story his superior career entails. This is a wonderful account of
service, intrigue, and military accomplishments of the highest degree. Page by page it takes the reader through a series
of events that are in many senses spellbinding. A terrific read. Highly recommended."
- Television personality Larry King
"General Ed Rowny knows about many things; especially selfless service, integrity, and leadership. Thus his rich, nuanced
and modest memoir is at the same time a valuable treatise on principled leadership as learned from General John E. Wood,
Rowny's long-time mentor. It is a great story, begun in days of the Old Army but with much to teach those serving today
- Lewis Sorley, author of Pulitzer Prize nominated A Better War
"Smokey Joe and the General is no ordinary military memoir. It covers the story of an astonishingly varied career that
includes service in the combat engineers, commander of an infantry division, pioneering in the new techniques of armed
helicopters, and finally Military Representative to the SALT Treaty with the Russians. Throughout this odyssey the General
never forgets his first boss and mentor, Colonel "Smokey Joe" Wood. Written informally with plenty of humor and wisdom,
Ed Rowny's book is both fascinating and informative".
- John Eisenhower, son of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Brigadier General U.S.
Army (ret.) & former Ambassador to Belgium
"A captivating book by a superb combat leader."
- Hal Moore,. General, USA (Ret.), author of best-selling book: "We Were Soldier
Once and Young", subsequently made into a movie.
"This is a personal recollection of lessons General Rowny learned from his role model General Wood when serving in the
Army. Written with passion, the book shows how inspiration leads to a better understanding of military duties, professional
perfection and success. History is made by people of such a persisting vision."
- Radoslaw Sikorski, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland
