Field of Mars

Marcus Licinius Crassus’s lust for gold and glory was legendary. What became of his army is myth.

In Crassus the tyrant, Rufinius the soldier, Appius the historian, Mena the hag and Lucia the Golden Whore, David Rollins brings to life a mystery that has plagued historians for centuries.


Sometime before dawn, mystery assailants shoot dead 27 people at Horizon Airport, a small general aviation airport in El Paso, Texas. Among them, a USAF airman AWOL from nearby Lackland Air Force Base. It’s this man’s death that brings Special Agent Vin Cooper, OSI, to the scene.

War Lord

Vin Cooper is hunting for a kidnap victim. The CIA is hunting for a missing nuclear bomb.

Special Agent Vin Cooper has just returned from an off-books mission in the Congo. Now he’s caught up in something even more dangerous. An ex-airforce colleague has been kidnapped. His severed hand, buried in a KFC bucket with a demand for five million dollars, has found its way to Cooper’s door – and he has just 21 days to pay.
