Art Jensen is a born warrior. A direct descendant of the legendary mountain man Smoke Jensen, he is destined to continue his ancestor’s legacy of heroism. For the courage, strength, and honor of a man never dies…

Into The Dark

Lieutenant Colonel Art Jensen finds himself a soldier without an army after he is caught on tape killing an Iraqi terrorist in a Baghdad firefight—only to have the media make him out to be a murderer. A career spent serving his beloved country now seems to be over…

Until Jensen receives a new set of orders—secret orders. He is promoted to brigadier general, and placed in charge of the Special Function Unit—a new, covert “black ops” team. A team of one.

The terrorists are already here. Financed and trained by a billionaire Saudi prince determined to bring the infidel America to its knees, a number of sleeper cells within the U.S are being activated. Officially, the politically protected prince is untouchable, and his campaign of terror stands ready to begin.

But Art Jensen is no longer a soldier bound by orders—he’s a weapon, bound by duty and honor, and he has one mission: to destroy the enemy within.

About William W. Johnstone:

Just to give you a brief rundown on who William W. Johnstone is, here are the basic facts. He was born in Southern Missouri, the youngest of four kids. His father was a minister and his mother was a schoolteacher.

He quit school when he was fifteen and joined a carnival after getting kicked out of the FFL (for being underage), but he went back and finished high school in 1957. After that he worked as a deputy sheriff, did a hitch in the army, came back and went into radio broadcasting, where he worked for sixteen years.

Johnstone started writing in 1970, but he didn't get published until late 1979. He has written almost a hundred books including the best-selling Ashes series and the Mountain Man series. He began writing full-time in the early 1980s and hasn't stopped since. His first published book was THE DEVIL'S KISS and his favorite, so far, is THE LAST OF THE DOG TEAM.

American Jihad (Saturday, November 24, 2007)
Reviewer: cmariderus

This will hit the bullseye with many
Vets. America is tired of the Anti Military seniments of some of our own citizens, and this book adresses the feeling of many of us.

FIRST RATE (Friday, June 9, 2006)
Reviewer: Jim Warwick

Mr Johnstone has hit upon another good series. I truly like the character Col. Jensen. He like is his great, great Grandfather, Smoke Jensen meets adversity and injustice headon. We need more heros like this on todays stage.
