Book Description

TechnoThriller Military Action Puts a Human Face to War

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.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Too Many Inaccuracies March 9, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I applaud the author's moxie in writing a very topical book involving current political leaders and international issues. This said, however, a little bit of research would have made this a much better read. For example, Navy SEALs do not have Marines assigned to them. Accordingly, SEAL ranks/ratings are Navy, not Marine. The US Navy does not have carrier-based F-16's - the US Air Force does. Being factually correct would have greatly improved this book.

    2.0 out of 5 stars A Good Topic Poorly Written September 10, 2013

    I fond this book to be very disappointing. The concept was good with the delivery being poor at best. Will not be buying any further books from this author.

    This was a difficult one to finish but I couldn't honestly write a review if I didn't, so I struggled through to the end. While there are numerous inaccuracies regarding the military aspects of it (some of which have already been pointed out in other reviews) the thing that almost made me say, "To heck with it" and delete it without finishing was that there were MANY instances were lines (possibly paragraphs or pages) were missing or in incorrect order. The problem was most prevalent in the last 25% of the book, so it just got harder and harder to read.

    If you read it as a free download, you're paying too much.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better! April 27, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The plot was superb as were most of the tactics. However this book could have been improved drastically by extensive editing. The grammar and the spelling was, at times, abominable. I am hoping that the sequels will improve as I would like to continue reading the series.

    More About the Author

    About the Author:

    I've had an interesting life. I suppose that's why a couple years ago I started writing. I've had an interest about writing and reading since grade school. Growing up, I was a dedicated reader. I read many of the classics, from Moby Dick to the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

    Grandmother had the full collection of Ernest Hemingway on her bookshelves. I read them all. I was hooked on going to libraries. I'd spend hours browsing the shelves. I read The Count of Monte Cristo, The Odyssey, anything by Jack London. Later in life I became a Tom Clancy fan.

    As I aged, I realized I've seen a lot and done a lot, both good and bad. I thought I might as well write some of it down. I started writing techno thrillers and am now working on writing a long book of memoirs. The book will take some time to write. My life has been unusual, with many twists and turns

    I grew up as an Air Force brat. As a ten and eleven years old I lived in Japan for 18 months. This was during the Korean War. The war ended in 1953 (not really, a cease fire took place) so my step dad was rotated back to the States. I had no choice, but to return with him. I liked Japan.

    We weren't in the States for long. In 1955 we went to Chateauroux, France. We were in France for three years. I hated to leave. I was a high school sophomore, a football star, a big fish in a small pond. How many American teenagers get to walk down the Champs-Élysées and drink Cognac in sports bars? I really liked France.

    Fast forward a few years and I was attending Georgia Tech part time and working at Western Electric as an Engineering Associate. I was bummed out to get a draft notice. Like Mohammad Ali, I had no quarrel with the yellow man. I thought the war a huge mistake.

    To beat the draft I joined a Navy Reserve unit located at the Ga. Tech campus. I joined with a good friend who said we should apply for the Seabees. We didn't know it at the time, but that was like purchasing a trip to Vietnam and being in the field with the Marine Corps. We ended up in the same squad in Vietnam.

    With all this military stuff going on, it's no wonder I've gravitated toward writing techno thrillers. I guess military life is in my blood. During World War 11 my dad was a Sergeant in the Army Air Corps. He didn't make it. In 1944 the B-24 heavy bomber he was a gunner on was shot down over Germany. By a cruel twist of fate, it was on my second birthday.

    My writing reflects my military experiences and thoughts about military life. Few wars are necessary. Often they take place by a series of mistakes and miscalculations. Once started there is no good or easy way out. I write about the harm war brings to so many people.

    I respect the military and military families. They often face great hardship so the majority of the American public can continue with their shopping, driving around, TV watching, overeating, or whatever the current fad may be.

    I respect few current politicians. Most only play to their base. Since the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, that base narrowed. Now politicians are listening only to those who write a big check. The money men, pandering politicians, and the circle of 1% elite, are the ones who send young men and women to war. I'm sure this lack of respect, and hope for a change for the better, shows up in my writing.

    But, no way I'm giving up on America. As Winston Churchill once said, "The Americans will always do the right thing... after they've exhausted all the alternatives."
