In Every Clime and Place free pdf Semper Fidelis. Always Faithful. The motto of the United States Marine Corps. Words to live by. On the ragged edges of civilization, Corporal Michael Collins has lived those words, taking on riots and evacuations, rebels and terrorists. Asteroid belt patrol is just another deployment. Ninety nine percent boredom, one percent terror. But soon the platoon of Marines find themselves entangled in the threads of a conspiracy of corporate greed, government corruption, piracy, and a band of war criminals. As the fire team leader struggles with tensions in the close knit unit, Collins and his fellow Marines find themselves outnumbered in a pitched battle to stop a corrupt land grab that seems right out of the Old West, but on a new, wider, more unforgiving frontier. And now he must confront the harsh demands of being "always faithful." Semper Fi. Words to live by. Words to die by. Time to earn that combat pay, Marines. Welcome to the Suck. And remember, you volunteered for this. Patrick LeClerc has crafted a tense, military action adventure on the edge of civilization: Earth's mining colonies in the asteroid belt. "In Every Clime and Place" combines the spirit of classic s/f of Heinlein's "Starship Troopers" or David Drake's "Hammer's Slammers" with the isolated, small unit grunt's eye view intimacy of George MacDonald Fraser's "Quartered Safe Out Here." "In Every Clime and Place" is a frontier land grab- a tale of government corruption and corporate piracy, and a near future Marine science fiction story, told with gritty authenticity, gallows humor and raw emotion, evoking the closeness and isolation of a small unit deployed to the distant edge of a bleak and dangerous frontier. BOOK REVIEW Set some 60 years in the future, this impressive, fast-paced novel is as much 'Semper fi' as it is sci-fi. The convincing story centres on the hard-hitting law and order role of the USMC in dealing with organised commercial pirates causing mayhem on planet Mars. The plot's development is cleverly stage-managed by the author (a former US Marine) From the very first page, authenticity is the dominant hallmark of this exciting and very readable book. Don't expect to read this novel a chapter at a time, last thing at night and then drop off to sleep. I found it impossible to put down. This book demanded and held my attention. The very believable characters live off the pages. They, their gritty Service dialogues and the battle scenes are all USMC through and through. Long before that iconic US Marine legend, Chesty Puller, was mentioned in the story, I was sold on this book's authenticity and the author's credibility. I thoroughly recommend it as an absorbing, exciting read. It has, too, the makings of a great film . -Mike Williams, Royal Marine, SBS, Author of "The Tremayne Trilogy"

About Patrick LeClerc

The day after PATRICK LECLERC graduated from high school, he was standing at a terrified approximation of attention while a Drill Instructor roared at him in the sweltering heat of the United States Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, SC, and the sand fleas tried to chew their way to his soul. This might be considered the first in a series of hasty life decisions. Today, he makes good use of his history degree by working as a paramedic for an ever- changing parade of ambulance companies in the Northern suburbs of Boston. When not writing he enjoys cooking, fencing, brewing his own beer, and making witty, insightful remarks with career-limiting candor. In the lulls between runs on the ambulance --and sometimes the lulls between employment at various ambulance companies-- he writes fiction. You can find more of it at http: //inkandbourbon.com/
