Book Details

Garrett Sinclair escapes from prison to rescue his team from the manipulations of two tech moguls and learns of a devastating family secret in the process.

Influential tech magnate Mitch Drewson calls on Sinclair and the Dagger team to protect his Project Optimus. An ambitious endeavor that empowers citizens to protect their financial and personal data in the face of increasingly authoritarian federal governments, Project Optimus is a threat to Aurelius Blanc’s Phalanx Corporation. Blanc’s data collection and media application are enabling a global security threat, creating a technofascism that monitors the activity of everyone with a smartphone, tablet, computer, or any web-connected device.

When Phalanx assassin squads overrun an Optimus server farm in California and attack an Optimus coder named Blair Campbell, who happens to be the president’s daughter, Sinclair must deploy a group of warriors to save Blair and protect the remainder of the Optimus team so they can finish their important work—a project that includes deciphering the mysterious Phalanx Code, suspected to be Phalanx’s kill list of Optimus employees.

With Phalanx squads hunting him and those he loves, Sinclair must determine who he can trust while a part of his past comes back to haunt him and threaten everything he holds dear. Nonstop action and authentic detail make this the most compelling, high-stakes entry in the Sinclair series yet.

Praise for Total Empire:

“The authenticity [A. J. Tata] brings to Total Empire is off the charts. A master of high speed political-military action thrillers, no writer since Clive Cussler has so completely transported me to exotic locales or made them seem so believably dangerous.” —Robert Crais, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Racing the Light

"Lots of credible action, plenty of government traitors, and shocking losses fuel the action. Tata continues to rise among the ranks of today’s top military action writers." Publishers Weekly

"An awesome follow-up to Chasing The Lion...Tata knows how to write an action-thriller, and fans of this type of novel will love this one." Red Carpet Crash

Praise for Chasing the Lion:

"Garrett Sinclair is a powerhouse of a hero." —Mark Greaney, #1 New York Times bestselling author of One Minute Out

"If you are looking for a good night’s sleep, leave this one in the nightstand." —Jack Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Savage Son

“Tata just keeps getting better and better, slowly but surely cementing his future as a thriller master." —Steve Berry, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Cotton Malone series

"Tony Tata has written a white knuckle read that I dare you to put down." —Joel C. Rosenberg, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Last Jihad and The Jerusalem Assassin

"Full of energy and snapping with action, Chasing the Lion is Tony Tata at his best." —Marc Cameron, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"General Tony Tata uses his experience to give us a glimpse into the fascinating world of military intrigue with a real human touch." —James O. Born, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"A gripping, white-knuckle ride that will leave the reader looking for cover." —Simon Gervais, former RCMP counterterrorism officer and bestselling author of Hunt Them Down

"In addition to providing fully fleshed-out characters, Tata transforms familiar elements, including an Iranian terrorist bent on revenge, a new bioweapon, corrupt public officials in high places, and a hero whose family is in jeopardy, in ways that are exciting and fresh. Military action fans will get their money’s worth." Publishers Weekly

"[A] hybrid between Lee Child’s “Jack Reacher,” Clint Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry,” and Daniel Silva’s “Gabriel Allon.” ...General A.J. Tata (retired) proves to be a masterful storyteller, and weaves a convoluted, action packed narrative, brimming with authentic action sequences (as only told through the eyes of someone who actually has experienced the raw devastation of war). Tata expertly layers multidimensional characterizations onto both Sinclair and Parizad. The result is a riveting and deadly “cat and mouse” encounter that is truly cinematic and escalates into an exhilarating denouement...Hopefully further exploits of Garrett Sinclair will follow."
