Summary

Sal Chancellor is just an ordinary man who is stuck in dead-end job and is unable to keep a girlfriend—that is until he finds a discarded watch that lets him travel backwards in his time line. Armed with his new gadget, he goes about changing his life for the better. 
But little does Sal know that he's being experimented on by people four-hundred years in the future. Tragedy has struck all that have played with time. The scientists are no longer trusted with the greatest treasure in the world. Militants take over in order to ensure lives aren't lost in future tests. There's no room for failure anymore. It's possible that Sal Chancellor might help them better understand how the time-travelling technology affects everyone in the past, present, and future. 
All involved with the Device have reasons for wanting their project to succeed—or fail. Colonel Arbeck's mysterious past has intrigued her squabbling subordinates. If Major Denville and Dr. Galisten would put their differences aside, they just might discover the colonel's ulterior motives for overseeing the time-travel research. 
However, it seems as though other forces are at work. Although Arbeck, her team, and the surveillance crew are the only ones approved by Congress for this task, the colonel can't help but feel tense as a former colleague attempts to horde in on her experiment. Is Old 'Ger interfering out of genuine concern, or is he conniving to steal her glory?

    Every Marine has a story about someone he couldn’t save, a face that would haunt him forever. When Command Sergeant Hal Tarra, one of Decker’s oldest friends, vanishes on the Commonwealth frontier shortly after taking early retirement from the Corps, Zack knows what memories are driving the former Pathfinder, because he sees the same face in his worst nightmares. Naval intelligence isn’t interested in resurrecting ancient history, especially the tale of a failed rescue after it had been consigned to the memory hole. So Decker does the only thing he can, out of friendship and loyalty, and the hope that he might finally redeem the one they’d thought lost long ago: he orders himself on an unsanctioned mission, beyond Fleet support, risking everything for a friend. His intelligence colleagues never could understand the Marine promise, “No One Left Behind” but as he keeps reminding them, he's still one of the Few…

    Deadly Captive: THE END 
    A taste and then it was gone. Lydia sacrificed her body and her very sanity, surrendering her freedom to protect those she loves. Within the grasp of the evil she fought to escape, she risks losing all that she is in order to spare herself endless suffering. Death would be mercy. 
    Death would make her sacrifice meaningless. 
    Cyrus is more than willing to play with his old toys, leaving Lydia with no choice but to endure his twisted games. His kindness is worse than his cruelty, warping everything she once believed. When the only salvation is in the arms of her tormentor, her cage becomes a welcome place to hide. 
    Love isn’t to be trusted. But the chains will hold her, strong and sure. Agony becomes the sweetest relief. 
    Pain is a language she understands. 
    “Sometimes I almost wish I didn’t want to hurt you so much. But just almost. You’re most beautiful when you’re fighting to stay alive. I want to keep you this beautiful forever.” ~Cyrus

    The legend of Sleepy Hollow is one of the great tales of American folklore, supposedly stemming from Washington Irving's famous short story. But what if there was more to the ghostly fable than meets the eye? What if Irving's account was based on fact? And what if the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow was not unique, but merely one of a strange line of malevolent spirits sighted across the world, bringing misfortune to all that witness them? Within this book you will find long-forgotten lore about the headless spirits that have plagued mankind for centuries, and perhaps even now seek ingress into our world. The Headless Horseman, and others like him, is at large in the dark places of the world, and should one encounter such a revenant, it is said that tragedy will surely follow…
