The Jack Noble Series
Make sure to bookmark this page. It will be updated regularly as new Noble projects are published. Feel free to leave praise for Jack at the bottom of the page!
Initially, there were two planned series featuring Jack Noble: the Noble Intentions series and the Jack Noble novels. This caused some confusion over which order the books should be read, etc. This page has been updated to reflect the newest number system (Jack Noble #1, Jack Noble #2, etc.) and is also a chronological listing of these stories, but not the order in which they were written. Those who have followed along since the beginning know that I like to go write out of order.

JACK NOBLE SERIES
Noble Beginnings (Jack Noble #1)
In March of 2002, while the eyes of the world focused on Afghanistan, Jack Noble finds himself on the outskirts of Baghdad, Iraq. A Marine in name only, Jack is on-loan to the CIA. Normally an integral part of the team, he finds that he is nothing more than a security detail in Iraq. Jack and his partner Bear have a run-in with four CIA special agents over the treatment of an Iraqi family. Within hours Jack and Bear are detained.
All Jack wanted was to finish his enlistment and move on with his life. All he did was intervene and save a family from unwarranted violence at the hands of four CIA agents. But he soon discovers that he did far more than intervene. He has placed himself dead square in the middle of a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of the U.S. government.
A Deadly Distance (Jack Noble #2)
Washington, D.C. Midday. A man waits at a bus stop, his intentions unknown. Two government operatives have been stalking him for days, waiting for him to make his move. Unexpectedly, the man takes off running and heads for a deserted warehouse. Jack Noble and his partner, Frank Skinner, believe the man to be part of a terrorist organization that is involved in smuggling drugs and guns and men into the country. But it turns out their plan involves far more export than import, and hits a lot closer to home. As the case in this explosive thriller unfolds, the man behind it all reaches out to Jack with a simple message… 37 hours.
Thin Line (Jack Noble #3)
Thin Line is Ryan’s latest thriller featuring former government assassin Jack Noble as he races from New York to Paris to Washington DC on the trail of a rogue agent marked for termination.

When Dead in Greece (Jack Noble #5)
A ghost on the Greek island of Crete. Jack Noble is grounded, recovering from his injuries and a near-death experience. The small town isn’t so bad.

Despite his weakened state, Jack risks it all to save the beautiful woman he hardly knows, and settle the debt that Esau signed in blood.

NOBLE SHORTS AND NOVELLAS
Short stories and novellas will be based on Jack Noble and other characters from the series. When the story focuses on another character, Jack Noble may make an appearance, however he won’t be the star of these tales. When I told him this, he was quite unhappy. He said nothing.
