The New D-BOYS Book

COUNTER-ASSAULT is the second book in my D-BOYS series of high-concept, high-tech special operations military adventure novels. It is also the biggest, smartest, most ambitious, and most thrilling work I've ever produced. It assaults off the page, and does not relent.

And to celebrate, I will be giving away infinite copies of the first D-BOYS book for the next five days.

They are the most capable, committed, and indispensable counter-terrorist operators in the world.
They have no rivals for skill, speed, ferocity, intelligence, flexibility, and sheer resolve.
Now one of them is the enemy.

COUNTER-ASSAULT by Michael Stephen Fuchs

Alpha team leader Sergeant Major Eric Rheinhardt is retiring from the Unit – hanging up his guns and taking up a desk at the Pentagon. But now a ghost, and a lost love, have emerged from his past, dredging up a secret shame and past-due debt. Much worse, his old mentor and now nemesis has turned up on the payroll of the Iranian mullahs – training their proxy fighters in Hamas and Hizbullah, purchasing cyberwar talent and fissile material from the Chinese… and laying the groundwork for the fall of the Third Temple, the modern state of Israel.

The explosive collision of these two legendary operators will ultimately embroil Israeli special forces, Chinese hackers, squadrons of D-boys, Tier-1 SEAL teams, CIA paras, Iraqi spec-ops units, Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, hyper-skilled jihadis, and Iranian Revolutionary Guards – all in a no-holds-barred street fight for survival. Before it's over, the battlespace will be littered with armed robots, stealth drones, a nuclear-cruise-missile-armed submarine, a hijacked Soviet warship, shrieking helicopter crashes, radiological rocket attacks, hacker duels to the death (literally), vendettas, betrayals, reversals, feints, diversions, double crosses, disasters, dognapping, assassination attempts, one-in-a-million shots at victory, and unstoppable kill-crazy rampages.

Get ready for COUNTER-ASSAULT – where the action, tactics, high stakes, and blasts of sheer adrenaline will be like nothing you've ever read. Exclusively from: Amazon.com | Amazon.co.uk.

The D-Boys will return in 2013 in CLOSE QUARTERS BATTLE

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
