David Shafer's acclaimed Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: A brilliant, visionary and deeply human cyber-thriller Deep in the forest near Burma's border with China, a young woman sees something she wasn't supposed to see. In Portland, Oregon, a troubled young man crashes his bicycle on his way to work - and then gets fired. In New York, a famous self-help author goes on daytime TV - and suddenly conceives 'a book that would take him beyond talk shows'. What connects these three people - though they don't know it yet - is that they have come to the attention of the Committee, a global cabal that seeks to privatize all information. And each of them will, in their different ways, come to take part in the secret resistance struggle spearheaded by a scarily clever hacktivist collective - a struggle built on radical politics, classic spycraft and eye-popping technology. Along the way, they are forced to confront their own demons, reconsider their values, and contemplate the meaning of love, family, friendship and community. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is at once a page-turning thriller, a deeply absorbing psychological novel, and a visionary exploration of the possibilities and hazards of our online lives.

An Alpha-to-Zulu guide to the complex and colorful slang used by the United States armed forces. Soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen have over centuries come up with words, phrases, and acronyms to express everything from raw emotion to complex technology. The military is both a distinctive way of life and a community—one with a language of its own. With this book, you can get a command of the lingo and what it means—from mating mosquitoes to gadget to panty raid, as well as some less delicate entries. You’ll also discover the military roots of words and expressions that have made their way into civilian language, like attaboy and hotdog. Whether you’re interested in military life or the quirks of American language, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is a fascinating tour.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (Aces High MC - Dakotas - Book 2) (Second edition - Sept. 2022) Liza A tattoo artist and biker named Tango came to save the day when my brother put my life in danger again. Stupid name. Sexy biker. My perpetually soaked panties were all the evidence anyone needed that Tango could dance all over my body any damn time he wanted. Unfortunately for me, he seemed to be in a weird relationship with his buddies Whiskey, Fox, and their girl Amy. No way was I signing on to be the lettuce in that screwed up sexual sandwich. Nope. Nope. Nope. I might need protection from an entire MC, but I did not need to share my man. Tango From the moment I laid eyes on her, Liza was all that I could see. Protecting her became a personal matter instead of just another job. Loving her, that was something that couldn’t be helped. If only my past, and the screwed-up relationship my friends attempted to drag me into, hadn’t become a problem.

As she moves between conflict zones, Kim offers a close-up account of the war, and of the people at its heart, finding humour and humanity amid the rubble and the heartbreak. Whiskey Tango Foxtrotcaptures the absurdity and tragedy of our modern wars, and gives us an unlikely but unforgettable heroine for our times.

One of Time Magazine's Ten Best Books of 2014 Selected by NPR, Slate, and Kirkus as one of the Best Books of 2014 Shortlisted for the Pacific Northwest Book Award Three young adults grapple with the usual thirty-something problems--boredom, authenticity, an omnipotent online oligarchy--in David Shafer's darkly comic debut novel. The Committee, an international cabal of industrialists and media barons, is on the verge of privatizing all information. Dear Diary, an idealistic online Underground, stands in the way of that takeover, using radical politics, classic spycraft, and technology that makes Big Data look like dial-up. Into this secret battle stumbles an unlikely trio: Leila Majnoun, a disillusioned non-profit worker; Leo Crane, an unhinged trustafarian; and Mark Deveraux, a phony self-betterment guru who works for the Committee. Leo and Mark were best friends in college, but early adulthood has set them on diverging paths. Growing increasingly disdainful of Mark's platitudes, Leo publishes a withering takedown of his ideas online. But the Committee is reading--and erasing--Leo's words. On the other side of the world, Leila's discoveries about the Committee's far-reaching ambitions threaten to ruin those who are closest to her. In the spirit of William Gibson and Chuck Palahniuk,Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is both a suspenseful global thriller and an emotionally truthful novel about the struggle to change the world in- and outside your head.
