Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Devil’s Waters is a gripping thriller marked by explosive close-quarters action, authoritative depictions of an elite Air Force pararescue unit, and ingenious plot twists. Robbins is a masterful storyteller."- Dan Mayland author of the bestselling The Colonel's Mistake

"A great novel entertains and educates. The Devil's Waters does both, brilliantly. Robbins has the mind of a scholar, his eye for historical and cultural detail is simply extraordinary. Military jargon rips across the pages with authenticity and spontaneity. Nothing is forced; all is real. America's finest and their foreign enemies are not stick figures, but full bodied men with all the passions and foibles of real people. Many books have been written about the remarkable courage and daring of America's Special Forces. None have depicted the Air Force's PJs, its elite unit of pararescueers, in such detail or captured their quiet courage and selfless devotion to duty like this remarkable novel." -William S. Cohen, former U.S. Secretary of Defense

"On target! The Devils Waters impacts the reader right from the start mixing the realities of today’s combat with fast-paced fiction. Robbins' ability to deploy you with a team of pararescuemen into a plausible yet extreme scenario is unmatched. Nobody builds complicated characters and situations better than him, and who could be more complicated than American Special Operatives with the mission not to destroy or kill, but to save lives and aid the injured? Fire for effect, Robbins, and keep 'em coming." -Lt. Col. John McElroy, USAF Combat Rescue Officer

“Using the ticking clock and life-and-death stakes, Robbins keeps the tension high throughout. Amid the action, he provides descriptions that border on poetry…. Readers of The Devil’s Waters will lift off on the thrill ride they expect of this genre. But they will also get nuanced storytelling, and they will learn about a corner of the U.S. military not often portrayed in fiction.” -Tom Young for the Washington Independent Review of Books

Praise for David Robbins:

"Compelling debut.... That Robbins can write as gauzily as an angel is perfectly clear." -Kirkus Review

"Brilliant storytelling by an author who continues to grow and impress, and who, here, seems in complete control of his material." -Kirkus Review (starred review)

"Intricately plotted, insightful and deeply affecting...With empathy and beautiful prose, Robbins succeeds at evoking the vagaries and triumphs of the human heart." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Robbins has crafted an epic and compelling story... He has also successfully put very human faces on the soldiers, pilots, partisans, and tankers who are the protagonists. This superb historical novel is strongly recommended." -Library Journal (starred review)

"Robbins has an uncanny ability to provide just the right amount of historical detail without overwhelming the plot. This talent, coupled with superior characterization and a masterful, direct writing style will provide thriller lovers with one of their best reads of the year. The powerful climax deserves the term "heart-stopping." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
