The Reaper is a gripping memoir written by Special Operations Direct Action Sniper Nicholas Irving. Irving was regarded as the most deadly shooter from the 3rd Ranger Battalion, with 33 confirmed kills to his credit. Known as “The Reaper” because of his lethal accuracy and ice-water demeanor, this audio chronicles Irvings’ life as an assassin  – his daily mission to identify, then exterminate. The Reaper cuts fascinating inroads into what it takes to survive the Special Ops, with Irving writing on-point from the front-lines. Ultimately, this books teaches us that no matter how the movies might romanticize the military, survival in war times requires the sacrifice of both heart and soul. For those who have wondered what it would be like to engage in life-and-death combat, The Reaper is as close as you get without pulling the trigger. Read by Jeff Gurner. On 6 CDS.

This book has been adapted from O’Reilly’s best-seller Killing Patton, telling the story of the death of Hitler and the implosion of the Nazis. Dark, almost painfully blunt, Hitler’s Last Days is a compelling exploration into the fall of Satan and the rise of America as noble super-power. Read by Robert Petloff. On 4 CDS.
