Editorial Reviews

Review

"... It's a quick moving book that held my interest from prologue to epilogue. It strikes me as an alternate future much like the alternate histories that have been written. The style is like the writings of Dick Marcinko (who is acknowledged as an influence)..." ~Doug DePew 'Military Memoirs' - Amazon Reviewer - July 29, 2011


"...It takes a speculative look at today's politics and puts an extreme spin on them that can be rather comical, but also very scary. In some ways it is a reminder that we can never be lulled into a false sense of security about our freedoms, ..." ~Mistress of The Dark Path "Suzie" - Amazon Reviewer - August 12, 2011


"...This book is a great mixture of action and details. It is more geared toward the military minded but it was a great read."  ~TheGinreading - Amazon Reviewer - January 29, 2012

"...I like fast paced! It was EXCITING-EXCITING AND THEN IT GOT EXCITING!!! I JUST LOVED IT SO MUCH!!! Lots of action and fun for the heart!!!" ~Vonda Norwood - Amazon Reviewer - March 31, 2012

"...The reader is whisked from a clandestine covert mission in Iran to the inhospitable ranges of southwest Texas. In between you are introduced to a highly professional group of men and women who take protecting their country...very seriously no matter what office they hold..." ~Jeff Dawson 'Direktor59' - Amazon Reviewer - April 26, 2012

From the Author

We are pleased to report that our current book cover won 3rd place in best cover art at Writers Roundup 2014. 
Our main goals in writing this book was to edify and entertain our readers.  We hope that in doing so we will ignite a passion to learn more about our characters and their adventures.

Here's and excerpt that we hope you will like:

Deb shoots Deano a hard look and grits her teeth so hard she snaps the end of her cigar which flies out the window.
Mac orders, "Deb, stop!"
Deb says, "It's just a scratch. I'll worry about it later."

A group of ex-military CIA agents are called upon for an undercover sensitive mission in Iraq. Betrayed by their country due to a corrupt government they find themselves on the run. This book is a great mixture of action and details. It is more geared toward the military minded but it was a great read.

I enjoyed the book very much. If you love America you will being cheering for the Wrecking Crew to overcome their enemies. There are a some passages that are not for the faint of heart. I enjoyed the wonderful love story in the midst of all the blood, guts and things being blown up. An easy read and real page turner. I found it hard to set the book down to take care of other things. Can hardly wait till the next one.

Three and-a-half stars

Today, a lot of books are being written as suspense thrillers surrounding our current President and the terrible path the country is being propelled with a potential chance of "no return." Some are good while others are best forgotten. This one falls right in the middle of the road.

The reader is whisked from a clandestine covert mission in Iran to the inhospitable ranges of southwest Texas. In between you are introduced to a highly professional group of men and women who take protecting their country (from enemies:foreign and domestic) very seriously no matter what office they hold. Yep, that includes the president.

The parts I found most intriguing were the well thought out plots and how they (in the end) tie together nicely. Imagine being part of an elite group carrying out the assigned mission and have it successfully sabotaged (this was a very good twist) while carrying it out and then all your contacts are recalled to Washington or fired while being in enemy territory. How's that for a starter? The group makes it back to friendly lines only to find themselves in the middle of thwarting an invasion by extremely hostile forces. The group consisting of Mac, Deb, JD, TK, Deano and a few other characters (along with a pick-up from the US Embassy) make their way back to Texas to work for their former (burned) boss of the CIA, Bill Winchester.

At times the story line is a bit hard to fathom with so much going on in a very short time frame. The characters never get a chance to breath and regroup. It does distract from the story a bit when it comes to believability.

This is the first government thriller by Lynn Hallbrooks and David McCoy. Not too bad for a first attempt. The plot is well thought out.

"Call Sign: Wrecking Crew (Storm Warning)" is quite entertaining. There is a lot going on in this book! It has adventure, action, suspense, intrigue, and even romance! I enjoyed reading it thoroughly. It's a quick moving book that held my interest from prologue to epilogue. It strikes me as an alternate future much like the alternate histories that have been written. The style is like the writings of Dick Marcinko (who is acknowledged as an influence). I think it does justice to that type of hard-hitting action adventure.

There is a lot of military jargon in the book that could lose some readers. If you find something you don't understand, skip to the back of the book where you'll find an extensive glossary. The book is written from a distinctly conservative viewpoint that I personally enjoyed. If you don't share that viewpoint, you might look elsewhere. If you do, I think you will find this book entertaining. It's a fun book with a lot of layers. I look forward to more works by these authors.

Format: Paperback
This wasn't at all the type of story I typically read, so I was really impressed by the way it grabbed me from the first pages. The book is packed with tension and high action, and there's a LOT going on. There's a large cast of characters with well-developed personalities (some of whom seem to be somewhat stilted in the personality department, though this appears intentional) and there's quite a journey from the first page to the last. The story kicks off with a mission behind enemy lines, then leads readers on a harrowing escape back to the states and into the dangerous field of private and border security. It's not a light read, and it's not something you'll breeze through in a sitting, but the length and depth work for it. The voice here is unique, but once I settled into it as a reader, it worked for me.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

You need only to read an interview about these two authors to know what a spectacular creative match they make. In other hands a CIA special ops teams might amount to only a few weapons and a tough line or two, but with David McKoy and Lynn Hallbrooks the Wrecking Crew is truly a full cast of characters with real lives and real relationships. In fact, you'll get at least two team romances coming right out of the gate. David's in depth knowledge of all things military shines through as well.

The Wrecking Crew is actually sent to the border of Iran for a secret mission, but when the President falls ill and our country changes political hands, all hell breaks loose. As the crew covertly reenters the country and makes their way back to Texas, it quickly becomes obvious that law is changing and a new order is about to break loose. Suddenly it's the government versus patriots, and you can be certain Mac, Deb, JT, TK and the others are on the side of the people, and not with the men in suits who have twisted up everything that freedom stands for.

With the help of recently expelled CIA agent Bill Winchester, the Wrecking Crew begins their first mission on home soil. It isn't long before they all realize that corruption has seeped up through the very tree of liberty and now rests solidly within the White House. This new battle is for keeps and, be they allies or foes, the sides quickly begin to form. Left with no choice, the Wrecking Crew leads the fight for clean government and the powers-that-be begin to quake....

If you've ever questioned the US system and its representatives, the themes within these pages are certain to stir your soul. The fact that you'll grow to love the characters is just icing on the cake. Be sure to read this military adventure...but don't be surprised if it encourages you to interpret tomorrow's news in an entirely different way.
