Jack Slater worked in publishing for years, before finally striking out on his own with his Jason Trapp thriller series. Fans of Clancy, Ludlum and Flynn will love the fast-paced style of Jack’s writing, along with the scarily real scenarios explored in his books, and Trapps’s never-say-die response to ever more challenging situations.

Titles By Jack Slater
Long ago, men of violence ruled with an iron fist. They owed loyalty only to themselves. Their names were whispered, but never spoken.
In parts of the world, those old traditions still hold strong. Power there spews from the barrel of a gun. Laws are shaped with lead, taxes paid in cold dread.
But not America.
Because we too have those whose names are whispered. Men who know nothing but the gray zone between life and death, whose only calling in life is to do the things the rest of us dare not, the things that keep us safe.
Men like the Hangman, a covert operative whose feats became the stuff of legend. He was the tip of the spear—the man his country unleashed when all hope was lost.
Six months ago, someone sold him out. The Agency listed him as killed in action. He lost everything he held dear.
But legends never die...
The Hangman is back. And he's looking for blood.
"Fans of Ryan, Reacher and Bourne will love betrayed CIA operative Jason Trapp, who stars in a pulse-pounding revenge thriller in 2019's breakout hit."
Note: Dark State was previously published as Deep State.
But Jason Trapp is losing his taste for it. For six months, his personal crusade has taken him around the world, mopping up the last of the Bloody Monday conspirators. There's only one left, and after the crooked financier Emmanuel Alstyne meets his maker, Trapp's debt will be paid in full. He vows he's done with the business of death.
Unfortunately, it isn't done with him.
After a simple kill mission goes sideways in Macau, leaving a CIA spy kidnapped, half a dozen Chinese agents dead, and America's satellites burning in the skies, Trapp is propelled back into the game. Eliza Ikeda was taken on his watch, and he's determined to get her back–no matter the cost. The problem is, he has no idea who took her, why, or what they plan to do next.
Trapp knows he's being played. And with the world's only two superpowers hurtling toward the precipice of war, time is running out...
Retirement will have to wait.
Trapp is back in action. And this time, it's personal.
"Fans of Ryan, Reacher and Bourne will love betrayed CIA operative Jason Trapp, who stars in a pulse-pounding revenge thriller that threatens to be 2019's breakout hit."
A Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile system takes down a passenger jetliner in the skies over Belarus, showering the fields below in burning scrap. As the world begins to mourn the horrific accident, one man—new CIA director, George Lawrence—knows it is anything but. Three hundred innocents were sacrificed in order to snuff out the life of one man: Professor Alexey Sokolov, a senior adviser to the Russian government.
As well as a CIA asset recruited by a ghost known as the Hangman...
Trapp doesn't know any of this. He's hundreds of miles away in rural Tuscany with Eliza Ikeda, and on a mission of his own: recovery. Both are hurting, but this is their chance at a real life. Together. But it doesn't take long for trouble to arrive at their door. He should have known that his past wouldn't let go that easily.
The question is: why did Sokolov run? How did the Russians discover who he truly was—and what secret could possibly justify the murder of three hundred innocent men, women and children to cover up?
Trapp doesn't want to know.
But he sure as hell intends to find out...
In DC, you're never more than ten feet from one.
Jason Trapp is about to find that out the hard way. All he wanted was a week off, but the world had other plans. Trapp stumbles onto something he wasn't meant to see, and when half a dozen top US officials are murdered by drug cartel sicarios, the reason becomes sickeningly clear.
Within days, Mexico is on the brink of civil war, and the violence is spilling across the US border. The drug cartels are at war, innocent people are dying, and the President needs options.
Trapp soon realizes there's more to this than meets the eye. Someone out there planned this.
But he intends to finish it.
The Apparatus is the fifth book in Jack Slater's best-selling Jason Trapp CIA thriller series. It sees the return of fan favorite operative Eliza Ikeda, and the introduction of a shadowy global organization that will prove Trapp's stiffest test yet...
In the North Pacific, the crew of a deep-sea recovery ship, the MV Challenger, are mercilessly gunned to death. Only one man survives, adrift in the ocean, and hundreds of miles from land.
In the deserts of Iraq, a clandestine meeting between one of the world's foremost assassins and his ruthless benefactor sets in train a cascade of horrific events that will shape the world for good.
And in America, with two weeks to go before a NATO summit that President Charles Nash hopes will finally bring peace to the long-simmering cold war between Iran and the United States, a network of sleeper agents prepares to bring America to her knees. They are well armed, trained and funded ... and they're prepared to die.
But Jason Trapp is watching.
And he's not done yet.
Depth Charge is the fourth book in the gripping Jason Trapp thriller series, described by Amazon readers as "the most explosive, well developed debut by an author I've ever read!"
With plague and violence stalking the streets and a new Cold War brewing in the East, America has never been more unprepared to face her enemies. There’s blood in the water, and the sharks are circling.
When CIA assassin Jason Trapp is called to the Middle East to identify a man suspected to be feared ISIS terrorist Khaled al-Shakiri, he expects to be in and out in a matter of hours. Unfortunately, fate has other ideas. After surviving the most violent prison break the region has ever seen, Trapp is left chasing shadows.
But he knows this was no coincidence. Al-Shakiri didn’t just get lucky, he planned the whole thing. Five years behind bars didn’t show him the error of his ways, it merely hardened his resolve. And his bloody crusade is only just beginning.
In 1914 the death of one man sparked the greatest war the world had ever seen. New empires rose, and old ones fell. Millions died. It could happen again.
And unless Trapp can stop it, it will...
Hand of God is a standalone Jason Trapp espionage thriller that can be read without having read any previous books in the series.
You can check out any time you want.
But you can never leave.
Two decades ago, the United States invaded Taliban-controlled Afghanistan to fumigate a rat's nest of international terrorists. And then it left.
Now the Taliban are teetering on the edge of a fresh civil war, and a new breed of militants is growing out of the fertile ground of chaos. One group makes the Taliban regime look like kindergarten teachers by comparison. It's known as Islamic State Khorasan. Brutal, violent, and bent on using the failed state of Afghanistan as a launching pad for global mayhem.
If there's one thing Trapp has learned, it's the more things change, the more they stay the same. IS-K has to be stopped.
The problem is, not everybody agrees...
Siberia in April isn't in any tourist guidebook. But that is where Trapp finds himself. It's cold, dark, and the vodka tastes like gasoline.
After brawling with half a dozen corrupt Russian cops, he's taken to the infamous penal colony marked on maps as IK-29, but known to inmates as the Black Eagle. The guards are brutes, their prisoners little better than animals. It's hell on earth.
And this time, he's on his own. The Agency has no knowledge of his mission. They wouldn't back him if they did. Because men like Trapp are tools. They aren't supposed to get ideas of their own.
It's dangerous when they do.
But somebody always wanted him dead.
Iraq. A dirty war in a blood-stained land. Insurgents. Kidnappings. Murders. IEDs.
Jason Trapp is done with all of it. After six years in uniform, and three years at war, he's out. Back to an America he barely recognizes. A country that never knew he left.
So he bought a bike and rode out West. Spent days on the road struggling to remember, and nights drinking to forget. He never expected to find a girl. Or a family. Or a home. And yet, somehow, he stumbled on all three.
Maybe that could have been the end of his story. If they'd left him alone. If they hadn't touched his girl.
But the evil Trapp saw in the desert haunted his dreams. Now the monsters who did it are hunting for him.
He just doesn't know it yet.

Denial of Service introduces former Air Force pararescue jumper Will Roper and scientist Emily Wilkes as they're thrust into a breakneck life or death race to save humanity, in best-selling author Jack Slater's first new series since Jason Trapp burst onto the charts.
It will be released on May 9th, 2022.
That's Victory Day in the Russian Federation, which commemorates the world's heroic victory over Nazism in World War Two. Ironically, it might be the day Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin formally declares war on Ukraine (because, of course, he terms the devastation that he has already inflicted on millions of innocent Ukrainians as simply a "Special Operation"). Whatever one of those is.
I'd like it to be the day that the reading community raises a hundred-foot high pile of money to support Ukrainian refugees, internally displaced persons, women and children, as well as the future reconstruction of a victorious Ukraine, on behalf of a wonderful charity called United Help Ukraine. They operate daily in the war zone, sending humanitarian aid, procuring vehicles for local partners to drive those supplies to where it's most needed, providing internet and fuel in towns and cities ravaged by Russian bombardment, sending medical supplies, helping heal those grievously injured in this conflict, and much, much more.
By simply buying a copy of Then They Came, you can help this amazing organization with their work. If you're able to donate a little more, you will find a link to a JustGiving donation page inside the book, front and back. All proceeds will be donated immediately to United Help Ukraine, and accounted for on a special page on my website.
If you want to help spread the word, please post a link to Then They Came on your social media accounts, text a friend asking them to buy their own copy, or add it to your email signature. There's a lot going on in the world today. But this is one of those times when good people don't look away.
