"As the father of Navy SEAL Ty Woods, who died while defending the U.S. compounds in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, I highly recommend this book. It is clear from the facts as described in Ken Timmerman's account that the lives of my son and three other American heroes could have been saved."
- CHARLES WOODS
"Ken Timmerman's superbly researched Dark Forces is a brilliant expose of what actually happened in Benghazi before, during, and after the fateful night of September 11, 2012. Packed with new and previously undisclosed information it asks all the right questions and provides answers to some that have yet to be asked. If you want to know what the Obama Administration does not want you to know about Benghazi, then Dark Forces is a must read."
- Richard F. (Dick) Brauer Jr., Col. USAF (Ret), Founder, Special Operations Speaks

In 2011, I was honored by Accuracy in Media with its Investigative Journalism award for 2011. Read "AIM honors journalists"
inventive and highly gripping thriller that encompasses
the secret and long-hidden origins of Islam… That makes St. Peter's Bones
more than just a great novel, although it is assuredly
that as well: it is also an enlightening insig
ht into today's increasingly conflict-ridden relationship between Islam and the Judeo-Christian/post-Christian West."
– Robert Spencer, editor of JihadWatch and author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad.
|“Timmerman's taboo-breaking thriller portrays authentically
the politics and passions fueling the deadly persecution
of Iraq's ancient Christian community: an unintended but
ruinous by-product of Operation Iraqi Freedom. It's a
powerful book America's political leadership on both the
left and the right would
prefer you not to read."
– Dr. John Eibner, CEO, Christian Solidarity International (CSI-USA)
