DANNY MCALISTERs adventures start with McAlisters Way in which 15 year old Danny McAlister assaults a school-master while defending a younger boy from abuse in a draconian Australian boarding school. His flight takes him through Northern Queensland to the New Guinea Highlands where he searches for his father, lost while fighting the Japanese during WWII on the Kokoda Track. Thrown into an unforgiving adult world he grows up fast and becomes embroiled in union wars amongst cane cutters, joins the crew of prawn trawler in the Gulf of Carpentaria and gets mixed up with smugglers and vicious Filipino pirates in the Bismark Sea. While there he becomes involved in New Guinea's burgeoning aviation industry. He teams up with Mad Monty, an eccentric Afro-American pilot and Angela, the stunning teenage daughter of an English missionary. And so begins the first adventure of Danny McAlister..
Only months after escaping from Frenchy Duvals band of cut throat pirates (McAlisters Way), Danny McAlister and Angela Holyman are once again thrown into a thrilling, helter-skelter adventure in their tropical, South-Sea paradise in McAlisters Hoard. Following only the flimsiest clues they embark on a perilous treasure hunt in a desperate struggle against old enemies in order to save the lives of new friends.
After 73 years French Indo China (modern day Cambodia, China, Laos and North Vietnam) has ceased to be and nations are at war. In McAlisters Siege Danny McAlister and Mad Monty are on the run once more. They find themselves working for General Claire Chennaults China Air Transport only to be dragged into the last throes of the Chinese Civil War and then onto Korea where Danny learns first-hand the horrors of battle. But far worse is yet to come. After the Korean cease-fire, General Chennault assigns Danny to Vietnam where he rejoins his old flame, med-student, Angela Holyman. Unwittingly Danny and Angela are thrown into the desperate, bloody climax of the siege at Dien Bien Phu.
McAlisters Allegiance is the final instalment of four action-packed novels following the adventures of Danny, Angela and Monty. As with the previous three books, this one races along at the speed of light with our trio bouncing from one crisis after another. The adventure starts in what was called French Indo-China and crosses all 5 continents with action and high-adventure along the way. Ultimately all three come to a cross-road in their lives where they must decide where their futures lie. It is in this momentous decision that their allegiances are finally put to the test.
In McAlisters Spark the developed world is destroyed and plunged into anarchy in an instant. Can Zach McAlister (Dannys Grandson), Karen Davenport and Mike Farrow survive as theyre thrust into a feral and deadly new order?
Not only must they come to terms with their Stone Age environment and the use of only Medieval technology, but also face the terror of marauding tribal gangs, whose only method of survival is violence and conquest.
Will they be able to forge a future themselves and their descendants? The question can only be answered through their courage, determination and friendship. But, is that enough?
Set in Australia, this will be the last book in the McAlister series and has scenes of On the Beach meeting Mad Max. A thrilling and entertaining read for teenagers and young adults. Action and adventure abounds which keeps you turning the pages.
Excerpt from The McALISTER LINE Series
From McAlisters Spark - Chapter 4 - A Horseman Rides By
BLAM! a .40 calibre bullet blasted from Dereks pistol muzzle at a velocity of 370 metres/second. Two screams rang across the bush. One was from Karen as she stared in horror, the other came from Derek as he crumpled to the ground with an arrow impaling his thigh. The shaft had penetrated right up to the fletching. In shock Derek had fired wide and the bullet zinged away into the bush. With two crims out of action, Karen elbowed Tom in the guts, turned and drove her knee into his groin. He groaned, released his hold on her and staggered back a few paces, but he was still standing and levelled his gun, aiming between Karens eyes.
Bad move, sunshine, a voice said calmly from only a few metres behind the tent. Dont even think about it or youre a dead man. Drop the gun.
A man who looked in his mid-twenties sat astride a black horse. Hed re-arrowed his bow and held a firm bead on Tom. The stranger kept a rock-steady aim and Tom knew he stood no chance. He relaxed the grip on his pistol and let it drop to the ground. Dereks gun lay beside him and Mike went to retrieve it.
Just leave the guns where they are for the moment, the stranger said, transferring his aim to Mike. We seem to have restored the status quo. Im pretty sure I know what this is all about, but fill me in anyway. Quick version will do.
Karen told him. The stranger listened, but didnt comment. He dismounted and tethered his horse before picking up the two automatic pistols. He herded the three escapees close together sensing Karen and Mike werent his immediate threat.
New uniform? the stranger asked with just the hint of a smile as he passed Karen. She disappeared into the tent, dressed and was back in seconds.
Police issue? he asked holding the guns towards Mike for inspection.
Mike nodded and the stranger turned to Tom. Derek and Cedric were no use. They simply moaned and nursed their wounds.
Where did you get these guns? he asked.
The stranger put a bullet through Cedrics skull.
You were saying ..?
He sensed Karen and Mike were ready to move.
No heroics please, the stranger said without raising his voice. I can kill you just as easily.
That pulled them up short. It was the sheer decisive finality and self-assurance of the man. No one was in any doubt he meant exactly what he said. No warning, no second chance.
We cant let you shoot people. Were police officers ... Karen stammered.
Not anymore, the stranger snapped. Youre just survivors same as the rest of us.
He turned back to Tom.
Now, where were we? Oh yes, the guns. Where did you get em?
Took em off two coppers back in Bright.
And they just let you?
Naw, we ad to persuade em, didnt we?
You murdered them?
Yeah, so what? Whats it to you? Like yer said there aint no cops no more. The stranger shot Tom through the temple, turned the gun on Derek and put a bullet into his heart. He rifled through their pockets and collected any spare ammunition he found. It was all the three villains carried that was worth anything. He emptied the magazines, handed one weapon to Mike and pocketed the other along with half the bullets.
Half each, the stranger said, that seems fair to me.
Karen just stared at him.
They were baggage, he said.
Who are you? she managed at last.
Not the Lone Ranger thats for sure. My names Zach McAlister...
