Updated and Reformatted Edition 4. Updated 05/31/14.
Readers Review: "On The Brink is a scary scenario projecting a possible war with Iran. The timeline is current to only a few months in the future. Centering around a Marine family, This book shows war with both a military and a human face. And as always in war, politics and economics play their roles. On The Brink is part fact, part fiction, and 100% a good read."
Another Review: "On the Brink is a blend of fiction and current events about a possible war with Iran that is set in the near future. The story centers around Colonel Brad Rogers and his family and the impact that war has on a military family. His 23 year old son is a Marine 1st Lt. that loses a leg in one of the first battles. The book is as much about the sacrifices made by military families in war and in peacetime as much as it is about the US/Iran conflict, although there is a constant background of a war spinning out of control. One that eventually spreads over the entire Mideast. It's an action packed war story that puts a human face on events and their tragic consequences".
Tensions between America and Iran reach the boiling point in 2016 and result in America entering into its first declared war since World War Two. This action adventure thriller while fiction documents the war as seen from the eyes of an American military family and its retired Marine Colonel father and young Marine 1st Lieutenant son.
Reference is made to fictitious characters, such as Colonel Brad Rogers, and to public figures like President of the United States Barack Obama. Quotations attributed to President Obama and any other public figures are entirely fiction. The novel blends imagined quotations from fictitious characters and public figures in an effort to add realism to a novel set in the near future.
The novel is number one in a series of technothriller novels that puts a human face to the horrors of war and explores the hardships experienced by military families.
