The fifth Zack Kelly thriller! Eleven o’clock at night. A knock at the door. Who would bother Cho’den, a ninety-year-old Tibetan woman living near Washington, D.C. at this hour? Did something bad happen to her son, a leader in the resistance movement against the Chinese control of Tibet? She opens, fearing bad news. Worse than bad news. It’s The Death Angel. Suspecting a Chinese assassin to be openly operating on American soil, Colonel Zack Kelly, a member of the President’s national security team, is tasked to investigate the murder of Cho’den. Accompanied by Skye Tenzin, an alluring Tibetan educated in England, the two depart for Tibet under the guise of tourists on vacation. Zack is thrust into a whirlwind of international intrigue, political maneuvering, and a seemingly endless army of Chinese assassins. When Zack’s host in Beijing is captured by the Chinese and Skye is arrested, he breaks for the border with Nepal. Meanwhile, the Death Angel continues his deadly rampage in the U.S.

To Conserve & Protect: Memories of a Wildlife Conservation Officer by Steve Hower
The illegal killing of wild birds and mammals has been occurring since wildlife protection laws were first established. Poaching remains a nationwide problem especially in Appalachia where these crimes often take place late at night and in distant, isolated areas. The state’s few wildlife conservation officers must apprehend and prosecute those who prey on our precious resources. It can be a dangerous job but it’s all routine for these defenders of wildlife. For more than 28 years Steve Hower wore the uniform and badge of a Pennsylvania wildlife conservation officer in rural mountainous districts in Schuylkill, Dauphin, Perry, and Juniata Counties. This book holds some of his most memorable experiences with poachers, licensed hunters, and the wildlife he protected. Get an inside look into this exciting, fascinating way of life.
