Deadeye Alternate History by William C. Dietz
ISBN (Paperback): 978-1783298747
ASIN (Kindle) : B00LMGK696

It has been over fifty years since a terrorist virus divided the world between red zones, where people mutated from exposure live, and the safe zones where normal people reside.
Detective Cassandra Lee, otherwise known as Deadeye, is a member of Los Angeles's Special Investigative Section and a woman who has built a fierce reputation by taking down some of LA's most notorious criminals.
But the serial cop killer, Bonebreaker, who also murdered Lee's father, is still at large. Officially, she's too personally involved to work on the case, but unofficially, she plans on hunting him to very ends of the earth.
When the daughter of the high-profile head of The Church of Human Purity is kidnapped by mutants, Detective Cassandra Lee is the most logical person to save her. In order to save the girl from her fate as sex slave, Cassandra must team up with a mutant partner, Deputy Ras Omo. Together, they will chart through unfamiliar territory to uncover the hard truths about the abduction and the prejudicial divisions between mutants and "norms."

Redzone Alternate History by William C. Dietz
ISBN (Paperback): 978-1783298761
ASIN (Kindle) : B00QH832BI

The year is 2065, almost thirty years since a bioterrorist attack decimated the population. The world has been divided, and new nations have formed. Those mutated from exposure inhabit the red zones, while "norms" live in the green zones.
In the nation of Pacifica, Los Angeles detective Cassandra Lee is in charge of investigating a disturbing case, tracking a cop killer dubbed the Bonebreaker. But strange new murders have occurred, falling outside the normal pattern and leaving Lee and her team wondering if the serial killer has become unpredictable-or if he's no longer acting alone...
To make matters worse, Lee's attention is diverted after she receives a letter from her long-lost mother. Now she must venture into the red zone, a lawless land where might makes right—and where the biggest danger may be her own family.

Decades after a bioterrorist attack decimated the population and left many of the survivors horribly mutated, the "norms" have forced mutants into dangerous areas known as red zones. And the tensions between the two groups are threatening to boil over...
LAPD detective Cassandra Lee is known for her single-mindedness, and right now, she's got only one goal-track down the Bonebreaker, the man who murdered her father. But her quest for justice is derailed when LA comes under attack.
The Aztec Empire, a Central American group determined to take back the U.S. territories that their Spanish ancestors once controlled, has led a mutant army into California. Suddenly caught in the middle of a war, Lee must put all her energy into keeping her city safe while unearthing the political secrets of LA's shady mayor.

ISBN (Paperback): 978-1785650864
ASIN (Kindle) : B01AHKXIJW

On May Day, 2018, sixty meteors entered Earth's atmosphere and exploded around the globe with a force greater than a nuclear blast. Earthquakes and tsunamis followed. Then China attacked Europe, Asia, and the United States in the belief the disaster was an act of war.
Washington D.C. was a casualty of the meteor onslaught that decimated the nation's leadership and left the surviving elements of the armed forces to try and restore order as American society fell apart.
As refugees across America band together and engage in open warfare with the military over scarce resources, a select group of individuals representing the surviving corporate structure makes a power play to rebuild the country in a free market image as The New Confederacy...

Seek And Destroy Alternate History by William C. Dietz
ISBN (Paperback): 978-1785650888
ASIN (Kindle) : B01LYEC54N

As people fight to survive the aftereffects of more than a dozen meteor strikes, a group of wealthy individuals conspires to rebuild the United States as a corporate entity called the New Confederacy, where the bottom line is law. As a second civil war rages, with families fighting against families on opposite sides, Union president Samuel T. Sloan battles to keep the country whole.
To help in the fight for unity, Union Army captain Robin "Mac" Macintyre and her company of Stryker vehicles are sent after the ruthless "warlord of warlords," an ex–Green Beret who rules a large swath of the West. But defeating him will be even more difficult than she thought. The warlord is receiving military assistance from Mac's sister-and rival-Confederate major Victoria Macintyre. And when the siblings clash in the war-torn streets of New Orleans, only one of them will walk away.

Red Ice Alternate History by William C. Dietz
ISBN (Paperback): 978-1728943565
ASIN (Kindle) : B07JRD9VFG

World War III is one month old. After attacking, and sinking the Destroyer USS Stacy Heath, the Chinese invade Tibet, and India counterattacks.
Rather than allow the Chinese to seize control of the subcontinent the U.S. sends 20,000 U.S. soldiers and marines in to join the fight.
The Russians use the opportunity to invade Ukraine, which leaves NATO with no choice but to respond. A full fledged ground war begins.
American forces are spread thin, and the decision is made to evacuate all personnel from Afghanistan. Troops have already begun to pull out, when Air Force JTAC (Joint Terminal Attack Controller) Dan Falco, receives orders to kill a ruthless Taliban leader named Noor Mohammad Hashemi. But it won't be easy.
Falco must enter enemy territory with a guide who may, or may not be a member of the Taliban, take up a position above an enemy held town, and call in a targeted air strike on a man standing in the middle of a populated area.
Meanwhile 7,000 miles to north, the Russians are holding a training exercise called RED ICE. Except that it isn't a training exercise and, if American forces fail to stop the enemy, the Russians will land on American soil. An accomplishment that would be a tremendous blow to American morale, and would suck much needed resources away from the conflicts in Europe and Asia.
Army Air Force and even Coast Guard personnel will do their best to push the Russians back.
But will their best be good enough?

Red Flood Alternate History by William C. Dietz
ISBN (Paperback): 978-1094889344
ASIN (Kindle) : B07RNNNF6L

World War III is three months old. After attacking, and sinking the Destroyer USS Stacy Heath, the Chinese took possession of Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh. Fortunately India managed to stop the advance at the Ganges river.
Rather than allow the Chinese to seize control of the entire subcontinent the U.S. sends 20,000 soldiers and marines in to support India.
The Russians use the opportunity to invade Ukraine, which leaves NATO with no choice but to counterattack. A full-fledged European ground war begins. The so-called Axis consists of Russia, China, Pakistan, Syria, and Iran - including the Shia paramilitary organization called Hezbollah.
As the fighting spreads, the Russians launch a surprise attack on Alaska, in hopes of sapping American resolve--and in an effort to reclaim what they view as Russian soil. Now, in the Middle East, the Russian commandos and a company-strength team of Hezbollah terrorists attack and capture Egypt’s Aswan Dam. They threaten to blow the dam, flood the Nile River valley, and kill 10-million people unless the Egyptian government joins the Axis.
But in the wake of internal upheavals Egypt has no national government. So as the Axis attempts to form a Shia friendly government, and Egyptian warlords battle each other for dominance, the Allies send a convoy of vessels up the Nile river with orders to capture the dam.
The mission is called Operation Pharaoh. And for it to succeed Lieutenant Commander Harley Kydd will have to cope with a prickly commanding officer, and battle a succession of warlords, before a final confrontation with Hezbollah. A mysterious CIA agent named Cassandra Cole will be there to help.
If they fail, the Axis will seize control of Egypt - and strike a blow from which the Allied war effort will never be able to recover.
