Book Description

What starts out as a simple case of economic espionage for Fritz and Sly Gantlet turns into a deadly game. Forced into an uneasy alliance with the CIA, the five Gantlet brothers must help stop a rogue Russian general from finding and activating a series of nuclear devices hidden in suitcases at "dead drop" sites throughout the United States. Worse still, behind the plot is the Gantlet's most fearsome foe, a former East German border guard who is bent on revenge against the brothers. For Fritz, Sly, Matthias, Mitz and Otto this is one game that they cannot afford to lose--because every life in the Western world is a pawn.


Editorial Reviews

Review

...a marvelous cast of characters unlike any others we've encountered in action fiction ...the sibling dynamics is a truly fresh approach to the genre. Here's hoping we haven't seen the last of the Gantlet Brothers. --Pulp Fiction Review, Ron Fortier

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thrilling Thriller! August 29, 2013
By Crigger
Format:Kindle Edition
Fast-paced, well-written and engaging are the three words I'd use to describe this book. It combines a bit of history with a lot of fiction to create a thrilling story about the Gantlet brothers. The dialogue between the characters was well-written, and I especially enjoyed the smart and snappy back and forth between the brothers. My only complaint while reading it was that I was so busy I had to stop. If you want a book that you can read in one sitting and get to know the characters without getting bogged down with too many minute details, this is an excellent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars exciting from the beginning on August 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I wished I had this book long before as it answers some of the burning questions regarding the inner sanctum of
espionage and trade craft so scantily removed from our freedoms...good read.

The Nuclear Suitcase (The Gantlet Brothers) [Kindle Edition] is a thoroughly researched book has everything you need in a good guys vs bad guys book.

Joel Jenkins (Author) book is exciting from the beginning on. I like how the story at the introduction captured my attention and left me wanting more

I hate to be the naysayer here since everyone else thinks this is a five star effort but the book was just a series of unbelievable action scenes where the brothers are shot, stabbed and otherwise injured but it never slows them down. Nary a scene could unfold without some bad guys involved and lots of violence. When it's well placed in a story, violence adds to the realism but this seemed more like a series of fighting vignettes strung together around a loose story line. It really is less about the suitcase nukes than it is about the unique idea of a signing troupe of brothers also being action heroes.

I do give the author credit for having very good writing skills and for getting the book properly edited for ebook use, something that doesn't always happen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jenkins can write! October 28, 2013
By Morgan
Format:Kindle Edition
I first started reading Joel Jenkins with his Dire Planet series and I don't plan to stop any time soon. His novels are always highly entertaining adventure stories with very interesting characters and settings, and loads of great action. Nuclear Suitcase is an excellent example being that it features the Gantlet Brothers, a hair metal band from the 1980's who just happen to also be the best guns-for-hire that money can buy. In this, their introductory story, the East German émigrés are pitted against a plethora of deadly foes with the stakes never being any higher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Officially a Gantlet Brothers Fan August 21, 2013
By Lebora
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been reading a large amount of suspense/thriller novels lately, but The Nuclear Suitcase is one of the few books that is going to stick with me for quite a while. Following the exploits of the Gantlet brothers The Nuclear Suitcase is not the usual stop the bomb save the world novel. The characters are unique (and very well developed) and I actually laughed out loud several times while reading, especially during the last couple of chapters.

The pace of the book was pretty fast with a lot of globe trotting. Some authors completely ruin their books by trying to describe/include too many characters and locations, but Joel Jenkins did an amazing job. I never felt like the story was dragging and was not tempted to skim at all (yes I do skim through books from time to time) because I was afraid that I would miss a key plot twist. I have already recommended this book to a few friends, and I am thinking about ordering The Gantlet Brothers' Greatest Hits as an early birthday present to myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally enjoyable read. July 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very good action writing, the kind that keeps you reading when you are supposed to be doing other things. I loved the characters, rock musician super sleuths, and it really worked and was fun. The author also has a romance with our language and toward the end of the book, when I was too hooked to mind, he forced me to learn a few new words. ;-) good on him! Kindle is so sweet for those occasions.

How many times is it necessary to remind the reader that the heros are rock musicians, and to describe their hairstyles. Good grief!
