The Scorching (Mass Market)
A nation in flames. Freedom under fire. A call to all heroes to stand up, fight back, or die. From the bestselling authors of Black Friday, Home Invasion, and Knockdown...
AMERICA IS BURNING.
It begins in the Pacific Northwest. A deadly wave of massive wildfires are raging out of control, killing hundreds in their path, and showing no sign of stopping. This time, the fires are man-made.
FEAR IS SPREADING.
In Portland, Oregon, a sleeper cell of terrorists have recruited a disgruntled Forest Service smokejumper to train their army. To spread the fear coast to coast. To make America burn.
HEROES ARE RISING.
Those who flee the hot flames are gunned down in cold blood. But one man--Forestry Service smokejumper Cory Cantwell--is fighting back. Leading a team of elite firefighters, he is determined to stop the destruction. Not with water. With Glock 19s. With real firepower. And with no mercy.
Live Free. Read Hard.

Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.
He began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western history library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.
"Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,' he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.'"
