Book Description

Six American men live behind a protective façade, their real work hidden from neighbors and friends. Different in countless ways, they are intimately the same in one: at any moment their lives can be altered with a phone call, and their actions may change the world.

They are Special Ops. And one team’s mission is about to hit certain jeopardy status when the discovery of an Al Qaeda base in Venezuela becomes secondary to thwarting the transport of a nuclear weapons expert from that training camp to Iran.

Informed by the true combat experience of Captain Jeff Struecker and finessed by award-winning novelist Alton Gansky, Certain Jeopardy is an immersing and pulsating fictional account of what really happens at every level of a stealth engagement: the physical enemy encounter, the spiritual war fought within a soldier, and the emotional battles in families back at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, suspenseful novel April 28, 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is a military thriller. The story was written in short, quick chapters from rotating point of views--and there were a fairly large number of point of view characters. At the beginning, I sometimes got confused as to how everyone was related to each other, but that didn't last long.

The prose felt a little unrefined, but that fit the character of the story.

The book was fast-paced. The author clearly explained the equipment and jargon used in the story without bogging down the pace with too many details. Every moment was full of tension and conflict, both at home with the team's families and on mission with the team. The conflict and reactions all felt realistic and plausible.

Characters were varied and engaging. Several of the characters were Christian. Their faith mattered to them and made a difference in how they reacted in difficulties, but the Christian content was never preachy.

There is no sex in this book and all the swearing is of the "he swore" variety rather than actual printed cuss words. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book as a "good, clean fun" novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced May 14, 2009
Format:Paperback
I was a little hesitant about this book after reading other reviews and noting the religious overtones that were called out. After reading it however, I can say that the religious aspects were well presented and fit nicely into the story line.
The book starts off quickly and keeps going. Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky do a wonderful job of developing the characters in the story.The inclusion of the character's families make them feel real.
While the characters are well developed, I feel the authors fell short in the descriptions of the world around them. I did not feel immersed in their surroundings as with other authors of this genre.
Overall, I feel this was a great book and look forward to reading other books by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Star Read!! June 22, 2009
Format:Paperback
The writing team of Captain Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky should be congratulated for their outstanding Christian novel. The story line follows an Army Ranger Team who finds themselves in "Certain Jeopardy" on one of their missions. From the first page until the very last page, this book is riveting. I certainly hope this writing team is working on a sequel. This book is truly a 5 Star Read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Military Thriller with Christian Overtones - Well Done! November 19, 2010
Format:Paperback
I am normally not a reader of military-themed books. However, the latest book in my `to read' list is `Certain Jeopardy' by Captain Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky.

Here is the synopsis of this amazing novel:

Six American men live behind a protective façade; their real work hidden from neighbors and friends. Different in countless ways, they are intimately the same in one; at any moment their lives can be altered with a phone call, and their actions may change the world. They are Special Ops. And one team's mission is about to hit certain jeopardy status when the discovery of an Al Qaeda base in Venezuela becomes secondary to thwarting the transport of a nuclear weapons expert from that training camp to Iran. Informed by the true combat experience on Captain Jeff Struecker and finessed by award-winning novelist Alton Gansky, Certain Jeopardy is an immersing and pulsating fictional account of what really happens at every level of a stealth engagement; the physical enemy encounter, the spiritual war fought within a soldier, and the emotional battles in families back at home.

Here are the biographies of these two authors:

Chaplain (Captain) Jeff Struecker ([...]) is a decorated member of the United States Army's most elite fighting corps whose personal experiences in Mogadishu, Somalia, were written about in the New York Times bestseller and major motion picture Black Hawk Down.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good book; could not put it down January 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded Certain Jeopardy due to the price at the time and the reviews I read. LOVED it!!! I did have to turn back to the beginning a couple of times to refresh my memory as to which nickname went with which character. This was one book that I could not put down until I finished it. I then downloaded the next 3 books in this series and read all of them.

I would DEFINITELY recommend it!
