Matt Bracken has written another excellent book that deals not only with survival, but with some of the socio-economic issues we are facing or soon will be facing.

Dan Kilmer's character is real, and faces some tough decisions and choices. The way he handles these decisions is more than believable.

I am looking forward to the next in the series based around the character of Kilmer. And in how Bracken expects things to turn out in this ever devolving world.

The survival tips for the new world order that you will learn are a bonus in reading this fine fictional story.

Format: Paperback
In Castigo Cay, Matt Bracken delivers with a sound foundation for his next series. If you enjoyed his Enemies trilogy, then you'll find your hours of sleep dwindling as you sit in bed breaking the promise to yourself that you'll only finish one more section and then turn out the light. The book is action-packed and that hard to put down. The details within this new novel still reveal that the author is a passionate mariner and most certainly a member of the gun culture, though his writing style is instructional and as a reader, you don't need to be an expert sailor or a competitive marksman to keep up with the terminology.

Now onto the story. Without spoiling any of the plot, let me say Bracken has painted another very scary, yet very plausible, not-too-distant future of these United States where privacy, civil liberties, and basic freedoms have been surrendered for the government's undelivered promise of security. The characters are very real and I especially appreciated that, unlike in some novels where the main character is the smartest person in the world, an expert at everything, and executes every mission with 007 flawlessness, Castigo Cay's characters' best-laid plans don't always play out the way they had hoped. This adds an element of realism and page-turning anticipation as the characters improvise, adapt, and (usually) overcome.

This is a fun read that's not only entertaining, but informative as well. You might as well pick up at least two copies to qualify for the free shipping, because you'll undoubtedly end up wanting to give a copy to a friend.

Format: Paperback
Dan Kilmer is a former Marine sniper who has been living as a boat bum since leaving the service after tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. His 60 foot schooner is essentially stranded at anchor in the Bahamas with his two-man crew and his voluptuous Venezuelan girlfriend of the last six months.

Dan has been making his living through odds and ends and off-the-books salvage jobs both legal and not so legal. He's not a pirate or thief, but he's not above the occasional con job. You see, Dan Kilmer is an "illegal." He doesn't have the paperwork to work legally in the many ports of call that he now calls home. He also cannot return to his home in the US because of the many Patriot Act "improvements" and IRS tax laws that have come into being since the massive terrorist attacks in the not too distant future.

America has become something of a police state, and a return to the US for Dan would likely result in his immediate detention for lack of up-to-date ID papers and chips. He doesn't even have a valid driver's license anymore.

Cori, Dan's beautiful young girlfriend, is restless and anxious to relocate to Miami, where she pictures herself as a news reader or some other kind of TV personality. Her beauty pageant good looks and confident ambition lead her to meet the owner of a huge 110 foot luxury yacht passing through Dan's Bahamas' port on his way back to the US, who promises her transport to Miami in the style to which she would like to become accustomed.

Soon after her leaving, Dan hears some troubling news about the yacht Cori has left on. So troubling that Dan feels it necessary to set off on a trek that will lead to more trouble than he could have imagined.

I have read all four of Matt's books all I liked but this one was GREAT!! I can hardly wait for the next Dan Klimer story. I sail the carribean, fly and am a firearms enthusiast and must say this guys knows his stuff. Matt is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.
Thanks for the great book

As a former Special Forces operator, I enjoyed his trilogy a great deal, but this one is a swing and a miss. In an effort to relate his knowledge on a variety of subjects, it reads like a military manual in part, with the overall story line being as predictable, and with a similar fairy tale ending to that of a Disney movie. I bought this book expecting it to be the kind of hit that Mr. Bracken had with his trilogy, but it doesn't come anywhere close to living up to that standard. Overall, a major disappointment.

I just finished this new book from Matt Bracken and really enjoyed it. I've read and enjoyed all three of the EF&D trilogy and you can see with each new book that Matt is progressing and becoming a much more skillful write. I'm looking forward to more books about Dan Kilmer and his crew in the future. If you enjoyed Enemies Foreign and Domestic you will really like this book.
