A modified Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane.
This is how Modeen and her team get across the Durand Line (border) between Afghanistan and
Pakistan in the Hawkei (book ten, Modeen:Salvation)
Pakistan built the 2,640km border fence on the Durand Line, to aid its fight against terrorism. The fence separates Afghanistan from Pakistan and passes through rugged mountains, densely forested valleys and narrow rock passages. The border barrier consists of two sets of chain-link fences, separated by a 2-metre space filled with three rows of concertina wire coils. The double-fence, which is 3.6 metres high on the Pakistani side and 4 metres high on the Afghan side, is fitted with surveillance cameras and infrared detectors. And nearly 1,000 forts are also being constructed along the border to increase security.

All the best for 2021
A big shout out and thank you to all the readers out there. Modeen had a very good year considering the Covid mayhem. In her genre, she reached number one best seller on Amazon in the USA, UK, Canada and Australia. She also performed very well on Apple Books, Kobo, Barnes&Noble and Smashwords, and rubbed shoulders with some big names out there. I hope you had a great Christmas and wish you all the best for a happy and prosperous new year. FHJ.

Modeen's back on mission in book nine. Available for pre-order NOW!
As the conflict in Afghanistan continues, the Taliban struggle to keep hold of their hard won territory. Desperate to show their strength and repel invading forces, they concentrate their efforts on building and arming their elite rebel unit known as “The Red Group.” Becoming increasingly more bold and ruthless the Red Group conduct raids on key foreign military operations and installations.
During a fire fight, in the southern Hindu Kush Mountains, two American A10 Hogs and a British Apache helicopter are shot down and the pilots captured. The British and American military respond with forceful intent, with the British in particular anxious to re-acquire their pilots … alive. They trust the rescue mission to a squad of top British SAS soldiers, while the Americans send in their deadly Night Stalkers to recover the captives.
An impressive rescue force … but will it be enough?

Modeen and the other members of her old SASR unit are called upon to provide witness statements to a military enquiry into allegations of war crimes committed during the Afghanistan conflict. After details of the allegations are leaked to the press, JustFacts Media trains its sights on the 'tallest poppy', Victoria Cross recipient Ben Logan.
Did Ben and his Special Forces unit blatantly breach the ADF's Rules of Engagement while on deployment? Could this be simply a media-led witch-hunt orchestrated to discredit the Australian war hero?
Or is something more sinister at work here?

The man knows his stuff; no Hollywood pretender!
Modeen: Rules of Engagement #7 – After a long wait, I was excited to find out there is a new addition to the Modeen Series. There is a visit to past ops, which ties several old storylines with the new storylines along with several old characters. There is a lot of intrigue and suspense in the problems faced by Modeen and gang. Immersed in the well-defined characters and their interesting, realistic dialogues and their thoughts and actions, I did not put the book down until I finished the last page. Oh dear, now it is another long wait for the next addition; hopefully, there is a next one.

Modeen kick ass.
