Purchase: Assault On Saint Agnes
When terrorists assault Saint Agnes Church in St. Paul, Minnesota, they expect to find a congregation of lambs: they get Bobby Kurtz, instead. An unrepentant Cold Warrior, Kurtz destroys the terror cell with violent finality.
Against his will, Kurtz is pulled back into the life he left behind decades before. He reluctantly picks up the burden of hunting the terrorists in our midst. He risks his life, and his marriage, in a single-minded pursuit of victory over evil.
Working with a shadowy government agency, Kurtz uses all of his skills and experience to foil a plan that would plunge the Twin Cities back into the Stone Age. The final battle rages across the plains during a Christmas Eve blizzard in a story that will leave the reader pleading for more of Kurtz and his team of experts.

Coffee or tea? | Cats or dogs? | One chore you hate doing?
I am a coffee person who loves dogs and hates cleaning guns. (three in one.)
Seriously, do I get two more? Good.
Emilie here: Despite his very serious picture, Joe is hilarious! Just thought you all should know this ;-)
Favorite place you've traveled to?
My favorite place to travel is Haiti. I’ve been there twice on mission trips, and I truly love the people and the country. I miss the place all the time.
What's your favorite book?
My favorite book is Shibumi by Len Trevanian. I read it in my teens, and it’s still held up well over the years. Brilliantly written, fun, and a darned good yarn.
One thing I have to do in the morning: consume coffee.
