If that sounds like your type of book, you're in the right place!
I have also written a more erotic thriller, just as exciting but building to a different type of action :) under the name M.K. McDonald (Voyeur)

Excellent pace of the book; one or two minor grammar errors but they didn't distract from the story. I highly recommend this book and I will look for more from this author.
Writing was choppy and I actually quit reading about half way through
Sean Fox, a dedicated covert operative, returns to the U.S. from a long stint fighting the Taliban in the mountains of Afghanistan. He's focused on one thing. A permanent beach vacation. He's through fighting, having served the CIA faithfully for years. There's only one problem with his arrival. Sean Fox was killed three months ago by a ruthless Mexican cartel boss just south of the Texas border. Not only does his sudden rebirth confound customs officials and the FBI, his arrival triggers long forgotten alarms deep inside the most secretive intelligence agencies within the U.S. and Russia. What follows is an incredible journey, as Sean struggles to unravel his own mystery, while dodging skilled Spetznaz assassins and brutal Mexican cartel hit men.
Choosing the violent and shady world of Mexican drug cartels serves as a unique and refreshing background for a story based on Cold War conspiracy. All of the players are out of their usual element, with the exception of the drug cartel thugs. The back and forth action between Fox and the cartels is brilliant, culminating in an incredible showdown worthy of a screenplay. The focus gradually shifts from the immediate survival of Sean Fox and his "twin" brother's family, to a Russian conspiracy that rivals anything I have previously read.Read more ›
Sean Fox, an ex CIA operative, returns from several years in Afghanistan as an independent contractor looking forward to some well deserved R and R. He is detained at the airport because official records show that he was visciously killed by a Mexican drug cartel 3 months before. Even more surprising, he learns that he is survived by a wife and small son who he has never met.
The son is kidnapped and very quickly Sean is fighting the Mexican cartel to release the son and protect the wife. Not only does he have to deal with the cruel and powerful Mexicans, but his return has triggered actons by intelligence agencies in both the U.S. and Russia. Before long Sean's struggle becomes an international one that will affect the future of the major world powers.
One reviewer pointed out some mistakes in US English usage but they were minor and didn't detract from the impact of the story.
Murray McDonald writes exciting thrillers. I enjoyed Critical Error and look forward to reading Scion.

Murray's books always keep you guessing. Always a hidden plot twist that you never see coming. Love his work! Can't wait for the next one!Published 3 months ago by Laura Harkleroad
Lots of action and complexities. The Russian connection is a little beyond reality and not well formed for the reader. That part of the story has an abrupt end.Published 4 months ago by Kindle Customer
