"Splendid! Damned fine read. A real page-turner." Joe Galloway, author of "We Were Soldiers Once..." NYT Best Seller and Mel Gibson movie.
"Atcho is at his best when he's being Atcho--taking names and kicking ass.
Highly enjoyable ... in all-out-action mode..." Kirkus ReviewsLee Jackson has obviously researched his subject well as he places the battles in Cuba at all the correct places and also depicts the divided nature of Cuban people.... ... this was more a competition between Russia and the USA. (He) writes in the style of the early and notable Robert Ludlum or Ken Follett. ... action-packed, riveting, adrenaline-pumping reading that is sure to make this a best-seller. The moon can be friend or enemy and Atcho clearly knows the difference! Superb historical thriller! Viviane Crystal, Crystal Book Reviews
Curse the Moon has it all, packaging its tense thriller in the cloak of understanding motivations both political and personal.
It's all about danger, sacrifice, and how even would-be romance bows to the pressure of a covert operator's obligations. In the end the personal moves into political realms and comes full-circle to promise Atcho a life he could barely have imagined at the novel's beginning. The warrior's façade may soften, but can it transform to something more than constant struggle and fighting?
