Inspired by the experiences of a decorated combat veteran and former member of the 82nd Airborne Division, Clear by Fire is a blistering new military thriller about an American hero who, in order to clear his name, must take down a highly classified band of soldiers that has gone murderously rogue.

Mason Kane was a loyal American soldier and a proud member of the elite, off-the-books Anvil Program—a group of black ops soldiers who wage war from the shadows. But all that changed when his commander, as a part of a twisted scheme to force America’s continued involvement in the Middle East, ordered an innocent Afghan family murdered.

Refusing the order, Mason finds himself on the run, hunted by his former comrades and labeled a terrorist by the country he served faithfully. Relying only on his survival skills and the help of female Special Operations operative Renee Hart, Kane must embark on his gravest mission yet: unraveling the conspiracy that reaches all way to the president’s inner circle and stopping the world’s most dangerous soldiers from completing their treacherous plan.

Set in the shadows of the war on terror, this realistic, action-packed adventure puts a twist on the traditional military thriller and starts a brand-new series that fans of Brad Thor and Brad Taylor will love.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An exciting military thriller…It’s impossible to take your eyes off Mason, who knows no bounds as he goes about achieving his mission. Fans of this popular subgenre will definitely look forward to Mason’s return.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Debut author Hood, a decorated veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, includes the necessary elements for a good military thriller—lots of weapons, a strong hero (and heroine), and villains galore. One distinctive facet of the series is that it has an African American man as the protagonist. Genre lovers will enjoy discovering a talented new author.”

    Library Journal

  • “Fast paced and with a sharp eye for detail, Clear by Fire reads like it was written by someone who carries a gun for a living. There is no substituting authenticity, and Hood has it in spades.”

    Kevin Maurer, coauthor of No Easy Day

  • “Transports the reader to the front lines of the war on terror with such vivid detail that it leaves you looking for cover.”

    Scott McEwen, coauthor of American Sniper

  • “Hood has the foundation for an action-adventure series, with a shoot-first hero in the style of Child’s Jack Reacher, Hunter’s Bob Lee Swagger, or DeMille’s John Corey.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “One of the best black ops I have listened to in a long time…Right from the start it grabs you and doesn’t let go…Loaded with action, this military thriller is full of twists and turns. All the players are well developed and enough hints are given to lead the reader on. The pace is fast and furious…read by John Pruden and he did a perfect rendition. Clear, concise, and with great voices. He really got into the action and brought this story to life. If you only get one book this year make it this one. You won’t regret it.”
