Editorial Reviews

Review

Phillips rolls his in-depth Navy knowledge, great comedic timing, and a destroyer full of imagination into a Clancy lover's dream. If you like technical, military adventures and appreciate good humor,look no further. Foreign & Domestic has you covered. - Ryan Southwick, author of The Z-Tech Chronicles

Enjoyed the good-ole-boy fun between the characters. Looking forward to the next one. Another review I read said that by Chapter 4 they were hooked, that was spot on. - Kenny Franks, 5-Star Amazon Review

Definitely need to binge read this book again. Humorous, yet so in tune with emotion. Kudos. - Leslie Landaverde, 5-StarAmazon Review

This concept of terrorist conspiracy throughout the novel felt as though it was taken directly from today's headlines. The action packed book has the characters globe trotting across four continents. -Christine Oxenberg , 5-Star Amazon Review

What a great combination of suspense, military action, and characters you can't help but love. - Carol Tomlinson, 5-Star Amazon Review

Fora first time writer launch, this could not be any better. As a Vet myself, that perspective of humor is much appreciated. Well done and looking forward to next book. - Mik_Sheri, 5-Star Amazon Review

It has drama, suspense, and humor that had me laughing out loud. Can't wait for the next book in the series! - Mandi S., 5-Star Amazon Review

From the Author

EXCERPT:

We flew into Panama to walk onboard the crew boat halfway through the canal locks in Miraflores. From there it was 550 nautical miles to the mouth of the Río Mira in Colombia. Eighty kilometers upriver it zig-zagged across the borders of Ecuador and Colombia in what has become a no man's land in nautical jurisdiction, therefore it was one of the major hubs for illicit marine traffic in the Western Hemisphere.


The ride from the Ditch to South American waters was rough. The aluminum-hulled Fast Supply Vessel easily knifed through the water when pushed by the high output waterjets, but the downside was there was no give and its lightweight took a beating cutting across even marginal seas. Even the experienced crew had to triple up on the caffeine or Dramamine to counteract the feeling of the 2500 tons being slammed down from the peaks of the waves to the troughs every few minutes for hours at a time.


The transit to Ecuador was spent pouring over charts, charts, and more charts. Narco submarine routes, coast guard patrol routes, airborne surveillance routes, recent interdictions, etc etc. The team sacked out for a couple of hours after lunch as the ship made its way up the "Look River." There was a nervous tension that hung in the air. We were all a long way from home on this op, running with equipment we weren't as familiar with and were in the bad guys' backyard now. Short of kicking doors in Venezuela or Colima, Mexico, they were in the thick of it in what was the Route 66 of contraband.
With the data from the UUV, it was a piece of cake to see where a narcosub had returned back to its homeport.


"Showtime, boys," I stated the obvious. "No heroics. We go in; get the intel, and get out. Everyone comes home. Break." The Rainier had been blasting away with her sonar in an attempt to drive anything with teeth away from where the team jumped in the river before hitting the beach. Nine inch high top boots made of synthetic materials kept our feet dry while the rest of our bodies would be dried by the crippling humidity in due time. "Dom, you're on point and we'll be ten meters back, ten meters apart to your left." I reminded.
"Aye, aye Captain short shorts."
God, give me strength. I can't take these yahoos anywhere.
The kilometer-long trudge through the jungle lasted for an interminable hour. More than a couple of times we walked into a vine, hanging boa constrictor or massive spider web. One such incident drew the attention of one of the sentries near the camp. Calder was spitting and clawing ancient silk threads out his mouth when the sentry's torch was probing near his area. David immediately began snaking towards him to intercept while Dom pushed in deeper to back door any of his buddies that might be coming.


Catching only glimpses of us in the light as we crashed in all around him, we could see the sentry's light dancing frantically back and forth attempting to see what on Earth - or any other planet- was going on. Using Krav Maga and socket wrench strengthened hands David simultaneously wrenched the rifle from the sentry's hands and forced him to the ground with an iron grip on his throat. What little skin was not covered in clothing or gear, we had painted jungle green with alternating half-inch & one-inch dark green stripes. Couple that with the 3D camo and high-tech gear, the guard could not decide if he was overrun by evil ghosts or aliens.


"How many amigos?" David demanded. His PC prompted the question in Spanish. To say the least, the sentry's response was not suitable for daytime television. Meek and scared as he was he figured he was dead regardless and better to die now before he soiled himself. David drove 220 pounds behind a knee down on his solar plexus. The sentry sat up straight gasping and choking desperately for the air that had been pumped from his body. David then picked him up by the scruff of the neck, "How long is your shift?"
"All night."

"B.S. How. Long.?" David squeezed his thumb into the sentry's larynx with every syllable.
"Todo...to...do," he choked out. "Please, they kill mi familia, you killed us all,"
"That is likely, but we will if you do not cooperate." For several minutes we grilled him on the usuals: size of force, op routines, check-in procedures, and the like.
"One thousand US dollars, take it and run, take your family and tell no one what you have seen." I handed him a wad of 20s and tapped David's shoulder to let him go.
"Please, my wife's cousin, he is only 16, he is a good kid. Please, Sirs, I beg you," he asked pointing to one of the tents.
Inwardly I cursed and winced although my response was as cold and mechanical as I could muster. "Two minutes."
