Such men are dangerous by Paul Kavanagh ( Book )
15 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rejected by the CIA, an ex-commando fresh from the jungles of Vietnam attempts to retire to a jungle island, but is lured back into action with an offer of unfathomable profit and unlimited danger Do nothing. That’s what Paul Kavanagh wants to do—absolutely nothing. Ten years of jungle combat have left him numb to mankind, and the only way he seems to keep from hurting people is to stay as far away as he can. He flees to an isolated patch of Caribbean sand, a paradise built for one. But paradise has a way of being found. An old CIA contact appears with a proposition. Four trucks of nuclear weapons have disappeared on their way to a covert campaign in a Cold War hotspot, and he is the only one who knows that they are not in South America, but South Dakota. Steal them without blowing the American heartland to hell, and Paul can retire in style. It’s the opposite of doing nothing. But it sounds like a lot more fun. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection, and a new afterword written by the author

An assassin targets the political leaders of the United States, causing a domino effect that could bring down the government and alter our way of life forever Assassinations, political upheaval, student riots, and conservative rage. In the thick of the Cold War it was the perfect recipe for revolution, and it only took a gentle push to send a nation toppling into dictatorship. But what if it happened in the United States? Miles Dorn can make it so. A hired killer with no past and no future, he steps out of retirement and sets his sights on the political leaders holding America back from the brink. A Louisiana governor, a Detroit mayor, a bleeding-heart senator, and finally the vice president himself. When they fall, a tyrant will step forward and Dorn will disappear again. But as the death toll rises, he finds himself growing close to a civilian, a Summer of Love idealist who makes him question his path. Can he turn back before it & rsquo;s too late for him & mdash;and too late for America?
