A Different Kind of Spy Thriller
on June 28, 2010
The flyleaf of Danger Close makes the story sound like a conventional spy thriller. It isn't!
LTG William Boykin has created a plot that hits all the bases, Special Operations, CIA, al Quaeda, South Asia. He has an detailed knowledge of all these areas. However, he fills out his main character as a real person with the real dilemmas that exists in the "black" world.
Novels, Hollywood, and the media usually try to portray intelligence and special operations personnel as amoral personalities. Having worked with these people, I know that they think deeply about what the do. This novel accurately depicts what there personnel sacrifice for the greater good.
