RiflemanBook - 2016
#1 New York Times bestselling author and decorated war veteran Oliver North captures the grueling reality of the Revolutionary War in this action-packed historical thriller. The man who has "been there, done that" in other wars immerses you in a ripping saga of courage, tenacity, and intrigue torn from the pages of a Revolutionary War soldier's journal. Nathaniel Newman is a volunteer with Morgan's Riflemen, an elite infantry unit of Virginia sharpshooters who fought with the cutting-edge military technology of the day: long rifles. As North turns the pages of Nathaniel's captivating diary, he reveals how the struggle to forge a new, independent nation was nearly lost by traitors, cowards, and the faint of heart. Brother against brother, friend against friend, neighbor against neighbor, this sweeping and meticulously researched novel of our nation's fight for liberty explores the bravery and perseverance of those who fought from schoolyard scraps and dismal factory jobs to a successful TV production career and the life-changing decision to put pencil to paper. Then there's the chance encounter that transformed aspiring author James Grant into household name "Lee Child." And between bouts at the keyboard in an office high above Manhattan, there are jaunts to writers' conventions, book signings, publishing powwows, chat shows, the Prado in Madrid, American diners, and English pubs. "Can I--the storyteller--get away with this?" Lee Child ponders, as he hones and hammers his latest nail-biter into fighting trim. Numerous bestsellers and near worldwide fame say he can. Jack Reacher may be a man of few words, but Reacher Said Nothing says it all about a certain tall man with a talent for coming out on top.
