- KurzbeschreibungInspired by the experiences of a decorated combat veteran and a former member of the 82nd Airborne division, Clear by Fire is a blistering new military thriller about an American hero who, in order to clear his name, must take down a highly classified band of soldiers that has gone murderously rogue.<br>Mason Kane was a loyal American soldier and a proud member of the elite, off-the-books Anvil Program-a group of black ops soldiers who wage war from the shadows. But all that changed when his commander, as a part of a twisted scheme to force America's continued involvement in the Middle East, ordered an innocent Afghan family murdered.<br>Refusing the order, Mason finds himself on the run, hunted by his former comrades and labeled a terrorist by the country he served faithfully. Relying only on his survival skills and the help of female Special Operations operative Renee Hart, Kane must embark on his gravest mission yet: unraveling the conspiracy that reaches all way to the President's inner circle and stopping the world's most dangerous soldiers from completing their treacherous plan.<br>Set in the shadows of the War on Terror, this realistic, action-packed adventure puts a twist in the traditional military thriller and starts a brand-new series that fans of Brad Taylor will love.

- LeseprobeClear by Fire CHAPTER 1<br>Washington, DC<br>National Security Advisor Winfield "Duke" Cage nodded at the two Secret Service agents flanking the entrance to the White House situation room and adjusted the unfamiliar tie that was threatening to choke him.<br>The last time he'd stepped through this doorway, he'd quit as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, effectively throwing away a career that had spanned two decades.<br>He'd sworn never to return. But that was under a different president, and while only eight months had passed, Cage was a different man, and the newly appointed national security advisor.<br>The room was smaller than he remembered but utterly familiar. The burnished wood of the massive table gleamed in the rays of the overhead lighting and cast its reflection on the flat-screens mounted to the walls. The blue and taupe carpet lay pristine, perfectly balancing the neutral coloring of the walls and the black leather chairs arranged around the room's perimeter.<br>His eyes drifted over the faces of the most powerful figures in Washington, men who were responsible for guiding their new president, and Cage wondered if he had enough in him for one last battle.<br>His aide, Jacob Simmons, made his way through the scrum of onlookers and as he handed Cage the daily intelligence brief said, "There is a problem. We need to talk."<br>At six foot four, Cage was built like an all-pro tight end and towered over his short and stocky aide. The two men had been a team since their days at West Point, and their relationship had been tested in the cauldron of battle on more than one occasion. Simmons was the only man on earth whom Cage trusted, and during his brief exile, he was the only man who had his back. He was also one of the most capable intelligence operatives he'd ever known.<br>"Not now," Cage replied, catching the secretary of defense slipping toward him out of the corner of his eye.<br>"Duke, we have a serious problem," he hissed.<br>"Handle it . . ."<br>"Cage," Secretary of Defense Collins exclaimed, dragging his attention away from his aide.<br>"Mr. Secretary," he replied formally.<br>"I was surprised when the president told me he appointed you," he began condescendingly.<br>"Not as surprised as I was," Cage replied, taking the secretary's outstretched hand and shaking it firmly.<br>He knew that Collins had fought hard to keep him off the president's cabinet, and while Collins didn't have the balls to come out and say it, the secretary was already working on bouncing him off Capitol Hill. But this wasn't the first time someone had been after his scalp, and Cage was already a step ahead
