About the Author

LEO J. MALONEY spent over thirty-five years in black ops, accepting highly secretive missions that would put him in the most dangerous hot spots in the world. Since leaving that career, he has had the opportunity to try his hand at acting in independent films and television commercials. He has ten movies to his credit, both as an actor and behind the camera as a producer, technical advisor, and assistant director. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Customer Reviews

Maloney writes in the genre of Thor and the great Vince Flynn.
G Rankin
With an action-packed plot, the twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat.

It is one of those books you just can't put down once you start reading.

Im not gonna question Maloneys experience or time with special ops and being a red-blooded patriotic American male, appreciate some of the "untold" jobs he may have done. My question is.....do all spec op guys and spys have lives as interesting and James Bondish as Morgan in this book? Having read the delightful "Deceiver" by Forsyth so many years ago and instantly becoming a espionage, spy novel fan, I could hardly wait for all the good things i expected to come from the genre that i never paid attention to before reading "The Deceiver". Guess my bubble has been burst with all the same-ole, same-ole that seems to come from this genre these days other than the occasional exception which unfortunately "Termination Orders" is not. Here are some of the ingredients that seem to make up these sorta silly books these days, even from authors who say theyve lived the life.

The main spy, spec-ops, assassin type has to be the baddest guy theres ever been. Actually Maloney did pass on this. Morgan, to be a tough as nails, top-secret, been there, done that, baddest dude around seems to be outsmarted by everyone in the book and beaten up by everyone from a congressman to a couple of guards to a bodyguard. He pretty much loses bout every fight hes involved in. Its always...........the bad knee that gets him whupped. Of course, after losing the last fight in the book has to rely on (gasps) his daughter to save him in the end. Hmmmm, what lifetime movie have i seen that in before?

The main good guys always have to have the coolest mode of transportation in accordance with the authors taste. It can be a certain type of motorcycle (Marc Cameron) or maybe a super-hummer with all sorts of built in gadgets or in this case a GTO.

These two books are much like the ones that cost about 99 cents. Better than nothing but not by much. They are laden with drama via stupidity, and ridiculous scenarios, like a computer game where a new hazard pops up with every twist. Maloney, think Baloney, has all sorts of giveaways as to his fake persona. No person versed in guns calls the safety a "safety catch". He lumps diverse guns into a group, with the sentence about his hero, Morgan, who "is an expert able to hit a man at 500 yards with a rifle, baretta, walther, glock etc", thus exposing his lack of knowledge and laziness in doing any research. If the rifle is a sniper rifle, 500 yds is unremarkable. The others mentioned are automatic pistols, with low velocity projectiles, an a good shot would be lucky to hit a house at 500 yds with one of them. Assassin assigned to kill Morgan shows up with a dart gun pistol, single shot. How absurd. Morgan keeps going into treacherous situations, thinking, i wish i had brought a gun. The only reason he keeps forgetting his gun is to create more fake drama. Then there are the absurd situations where he gets caught, goes on roof spying the bad guys, roof collapses. Gets on ladder, ladder collapses. Jumps fence in zoo to escape bad guys, lands in a lion pit. Wonders what to do about the lion, eventually recollects that he has a pistol, but declines to shoot the lion. Bad guys shoot the lion for some unfathomable reason, saving the guy they are trying to kill, but lo and behold, there is another lion Morgan did not notice. M wants to get out, but gate padlocked, and M declares that shooting the lock will just jam it. Bull. I shot a padlock with a pistol, lock wound up in the next county.Read more ›

In this book there was so much dishonesty and betrayal I began to feel pretty beat up...or maybe it was the fights, or the attacks or the murders. The action was non-stop. It just kept coming! If you enjoy that kind of thing; this is it and it is well written.

I hope you enjoy this book soon- when you are well rested and feeling strong.

This is a promising story, that might be promising more.

The author's biography is OBVIOUSLY fabricated. This book was written by someone who has never experienced violence. His descriptions are clumsy and he does not understand weapons nor the wounds they cause. His storyline is implausible and unbelievable. It reminds me of a liberal trying to write a book about the military with no first hand experience. It is like he watched a bunch of B movies as background for the book.

His lack of knowledge regarding the subject matter of this book is astonishing. I wish I had read the fake bio first. I can't believe that the publisher didn't smell it out long before this steaming heap of crap got to press.

Written at a second-grade level. Made it about halfway through, before I just gave up. I really can't understand why others rated it so high.

I suppose if you want to read about a hero with major flaws this could be for you. Morgan runs blindly into situations without a thought in his head. He was supposed to be an accomplished assassin but apparently Maloney doesn't know what that means or Morgan was a real has been and forgot everything he knew that made him useful to the CIA when he was younger.

The character development is terribly weak. Morgan's grown daughter wants a better relationship with her Dad so Morgan promises to take her to a sports event in a day or so. He than runs of to Afghanistan for a few days and than returns to the US to run around the country for a few more days and never is the missed sports event mentioned until weeks later. Probably a nice development to flesh out the characters but it than lies ignored for chapters and chapters.

I suppose it beats doing taxes or reading the paper, but only just a little bit better.
