Nicholas Irving is a thriller fiction author and former special ops operative in the American Army’s 3rd Ranger Battalion. His upbringing set him on a path to becoming a military man since both of her parents were in the army. Both of his parents worked in counterintelligence and he was born while they lived in Germany.

Irving grew up in a strict household and his father was an enforcer of discipline. At a very young age, he began exercising and doing pushups and could never get away with much as his father nipped any indiscipline in the bud.
For Irving, life growing up was all about being tough and his dad was adamant that he should not cry, shed tears and in essence, throw out anything that showed any weakness. Together, they used to watch all manner of Navy SEAL movies that he loved so much.

He particularly loved watching “Delta Force” starring Chuck Norris and many of the Charlie Sheen movies that would push him to become a special operator. He just knew that these were cool operatives and he dreamed of one day working in special operations.

Following Nicholas Irving’s graduation from high school, he got a 1.7 GPA and hence college was never an option. Very early on, he figured out that his only way to make something of a career was to join the military.
All Nick Irving wanted was to become a Navy SEAL and on his own, he took the physical fitness test. At 17 years old, he believed he was fit to begin training and presented himself to the recruiting office.

He had prepared himself but there was one test that was impossible for anyone to prepare himself for. Like just about anyone, Irving could not have prepared for the color vision test and all these years he did not know about his colorblindness.
He has never gotten rid of the test to this day and remembers that he got zero out of fourteen on the color vision test. This meant that he was disqualified from the SEALs which shattered his dreams.

He was lucky that a recruiter from the army noticed how much passion he had and asked him if he would like to join the Rangers. Nicholas Irving did not understand what being an Army Ranger involved but he thought they were kind of cool.
When the recruiter told him that they were very similar to the Navy SEALs he signed up.

Nicholas Irving went to Ranger training at Fort Benning Georgia and went on to serve in Afghanistan and Iraq as a sniper. Over his time with the Rangers, he had more than 33 confirmed kills and would become known as “The Reaper.” He also set records for the number of kills on each deployment that he went overseas.

After he came back home and got out of the military, he lost his way and almost took his own life. He worked hard to set up a very successful training company for law enforcement, the military, civilians, and contractors.
Nicholas has been involved in entertainment and was a coach on “American Grit,” the reality TV show alongside John Cena. Irving also worked as an onset advisor on “The Wall” the 2017 Sniper film. He published the blockbuster New York Times bestselling title “The Reaper” in 2015.

“Ghost Target” by Nicholas Irving introduces Vick Harwood nicknamed “The Reaper,” who is a man with exceptional skills as a sniper. In only 90 days, he had killed 33 enemy combatants, which is a record kill count.

But then he is deployed to Afghanistan and is knocked out when his regiment comes under a mortar attack. When he wakes up, he finds himself back in the US with amnesia. Neither his gun nor his spotter had been recovered from the scene.
He made the decision to accept his fate and slowly picked up the many pieces of his life. He is employed training snipers in the Special Forces at the North Carolina-based Fort Bragg. He also gets into a new relationship with Jackie an Olympic medalist.

But then there are a series of mysterious assassinations in the area and Harwood always happens to be in the vicinity of each killing. Even more damning, a sniper rifle that is identical to the one he lost in Afghanistan seems to be the one being used by the killer.

His memories tend to be full of blackouts and very hazy and he cannot wonder if someone is setting him up or maybe he is the killer. He needs to unravel the mystery with time running out or else he will pay for the crime he does not think he committed.

Nicholas Irving’s novel “Threat Zero” opens with a tragic incident. A convoy that had several members of the President’s family and his ministers to Family Day at Camp David is ambushed leaving many people dead among them children.
In the immediate aftermath, Vick Harwood a social media live feed of Sammie Samuelson, his former ranger friend apparently confessed and committed suicide.

The events happened at his apartment in Thurmont, Maryland just a mile from Camp David. In the background are remnants of a firefight including ammunition, rocket launchers, and a sniper rifle.

Harwood goes to Thurman intending to look into the supposed suicide and working with Valerie Hinojosa an attractive FBI agent, they find trace evidence that points to a dark plot involving domestic political opponents and transnational terrorists. In the meantime, all the president wants is retribution and he will do anything to get it.

Harwood joins a team that is determined to kill everyone related to terrorists and in the process eliminate their seed from existence. The team comprises a sniper from Marien Force Recon, and a sniper from the Navy SEALs, Harwood, and Hinojosa.
They all travel to Azerbaijan, Iran, and Crimea before they realized the mission was not what it seemed.

“Drone Strike” by Nicholas Irving follows Vick Harwood a Ranger sniper and his spotter who are on a classified mission undercover. They are on a classified mission hoping to provide assistance to the Israeli Defense Forces who are battling to stop Hezbollah and Syria from seizing the Golan Heights.

The two are operating with limited support from the Israeli and American governments. Alessandra Cavessa who is in charge of operations for the Italian UN Commission in Syria is engaged in moving families out of a neighborhood that has been engulfed by war.

The suburb is nearly vacant and has become a haven for Russian private military contractors, ISIS militants, and anti-Assad forces. Crawling into the basement of one of the homes she finds a secret room with detailed descriptions of attacks conducted against the USA.

But things only get worse when she falls into the hands of Jasar Tankian the madman and mastermind who was behind the plots. With Syrian tanks bearing down on the Israelis, Vick, and Team Reaper are the only hope for America’s survival.
