Marc Rainer is the pen name for Charles “Chuck” Ambrose, Jr.
A graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, Chuck is a former Air Force JAG Circuit Prosecutor and former federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C., and in Kansas City, MO.
In his more than thirty years of experience, he has tried hundreds of both military and federal (civilian) major cases, including prosecutions of homicide cases, federal conspiracy trials, and mafia and other organized crime prosecutions.
Weaving scenes from his investigative and trial experiences into the plot lines of his novels, Chuck’s writing has been hailed by those in the criminal justice fields for their realism.
Chuck tries to make the books as realistic as possible, using actual criminal organizations and cases in the plot lines, and even use real transcripts from his trials.
He has co-authored a manual on how to try murder cases, which was published by the American Bar Association’s Criminal Law Section. Chuck lives in a suburb of a major northwestern city with his wife, retired Special Agent of the Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations (OSI), and their three rescue mutts.

A self-published author who has sold over 40,000 books to date, Chuck has four novels out and is working on his fifth. His latest release is A Winter of Wolves, which concerns the Islamic Terrorist threat to the U.S.
Goodreads describes the book as:
‘Federal prosecutor Jeff Trask is summoned to a murder scene. A Park Police officer has been brutally murdered at the Lincoln Memorial. As Trask and a team of local and federal investigators try to find the killer, more police officers are murdered. While attending the funeral for one of these victims, Trask and his team find themselves in a firefight with a cell of radical Islamic terrorists. Disqualified because of his involvement at the scene at Arlington National Cemetery, Trask is reassigned to Washington D.C.’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, where he discovers that the firefight at Arlington was only part of a bigger and much more sinister plot to bomb that threatens the entire east seaboard.’
I’m so excited to read this series of crime mysteries, and I hope you’ll join me.
