Car bombs set by a group called Red Hand are going off all over West Germany, killing American, British and German citizens. Red Hand's manifesto reads as if it was copied from Nazi propaganda. Now, just four years after the 1972 Olympics massacre of Israeli athletes and three decades after the Holocaust, the West German government is facing its worst political nightmare: Germans are once again killing Jews - and former Nazis who want to create the Fourth Reich may somehow be involved.
The West German police can't find the shadowy members of Red Hand, so the American and British governments decide to act covertly. Josh Haman, part way through an exchange tour with the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm, joins the team led by his friend and SEAL Team Six member Marty Cabot. The hunt takes their team into East Germany to execute their written orders, which tell them "to find, neutralize and render harmless to the United States and her allies the members of Red Hand."
"With Render Harmless, Marc Liebman has confirmed that he is a gifted story-teller. The narrative has multi-faceted and complex plot and it is developed nicely, keeping the reader's interest and working it's way to a tight ending. --Capt. Michael Field, USN (Ret.), Wings of Gold Magazine.
"Marc Liebman shares a complicated and disturbing story. His storytelling in Render Harmless is a telescopic insight into the horrors of global terrorism before our lives were irrevocably changed by 9/11. Although the book is historical fiction, its truth catapults the reader back into the Cold War that often feels bitterly frigid. Josh Haman, the heroic Navy pilot, will cause your heart to pound and your knees to shake, especially when the fuel hovers on empty on more than one occasion." -- Military Writers Society of America
Magnificently malevolent! Render Harmless taps into the nation's latest fascination with the Cold War and the days leading up to our modern era of terrorism. Render Harmless features all the ingredients to keep the reader guessing and the plot moving: Nazis, Russians (Soviet's not today's capitalists), Arab terrorists, and of course, Americans. Prepare for a roller coaster ride that starts with a brutal assassination in a sleepy California town and climaxes in a dark Russian prison cell. Marc Liebman has perfectly fused his years as a combat Naval aviator and as an ad agency executive to create a compelling, dramatic, and page-turning narrative worthy or comparison to Larry Bond, Tom Clancy, and Stephen Coonts.-- Ken Carodine, RADM USN (Ret.), author of Nuclear Dragon
