Jeff Kirkham, 28-year Green Beret and co-author Jason Ross release their high-octane military thriller, Black Autumn: Conquistadors today on Amazon: Audible, Kindle, Kindle Unlimited and paperback.
As a collapse chokes the final breath out of America, a lone desert rancher leads a no-holds-barred defense of freedom against a soulless cartel overlord with near-invincible weapons.
Gustavo Castillo, the criminal mastermind of northern Mexico, strikes into the deserts of America with an army of commandos, but he can’t shake the suspicion that his exquisite, American-educated daughter plots against him to seize his throne. As he struggles against ferocious American patriots, his sociopathy thickens from genius to schizophrenia.
Meanwhile, Noah Miller, a rancher barely surviving in the hardscrabble borderlands of Arizona, fights his own losing battle against alcoholism, depression and guilt over the murder of his wife and daughter. When a terrorist attack combines with an economic meltdown, the commercial core of America collapses, and Noah could hardly care less. But when cartel raiders prey upon his neighbors and loved ones, he turns a listening ear to something greater than his pain—a voice from beyond that spurs him toward his destiny–an iron-born role in the defense of America.
Black Autumn: Conquistadors fuses the gut-wrenching twists of a psychological thriller with the rip-roaring battle scenes of a military action novel. Steeped in guerrilla tactics, Conquistadors explores the American legacy of frontier combat, hearkening to a modern Sam Houston, Daniel Boone and Jim Bowie. If you loved the movie Red Dawn, you’re going to devour Black Autumn: Conquistadors.

In a world where so many Americans bicker endlessly on social media, would heroes still rise up to sacrifice their lives for freedom? Has the American Spirit that conquered the West gone forever to sleep?

Read Black Autumn: Conquistadors and you decide.

BTW, all of the Black Autumn series (now four novels) is available on Kindle Unlimited!

Enjoy with our hearty thanks for being a loyal reader and friend.

Your humble scribbler,
Jason Ross

“This is my favorite book in the series! There were so many twists and turns that story kept me on my toes. There were many times that I had to put the book down and walk away to give myself time to digest my thoughts and emotions before I could continue the story.”–Esther Agosto Landsverk

@READYMAN this sounds like the makings for one of those awesome Netflix series…

Are there plans to put these in print?

I did check the links, those prices are a steal but I have to imagine people will pay for the print versions, or are we past that these days…?


My thoughts exactly!


Print should be up very very soon



Amazon appears to have it in paperback.


Yes!! Thanks for the link! I had been looking for the paperback copy these past few days. Just ordered it!


Just finished Conquistadors. (Read Black Autumn first).
WOW. I couldn’t put it down! The action and plot was great. Learned a lot!
Kept me guessing about Sofi. Is she or isn’t she?
Bill being alive was a nice surprise. I was hoping! Mr. Rate in Shooter reminds me of Bill (or vice versa):

Reading Travelers now
Thanks for writing these-I rarely read fiction anymore but I’ll read all you guys put out for sure!
