'Bear' – Paul Michael Medved – Special Forces warrior – undercover cop.
Bear is the main character in this story which also fits well in the Action/Adventure genre. There is a large cast of supporting characters but none approach main character status.
In the military, Bear advanced to the bad assed group known as SOG, Studies and Observations Group of the Military Assistance Command - Vietnam. The covert military unit ran clandestine operations in Laos and North Vietnam. Their kill rate was high and their casualty rate was just as high.
After the military, Bear was engrained in undercover narcotics work in Pittsburg until he accepted an assignment with the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency in Florida. DEA agent Lara McMillan headed a team intent on bringing ultra violent Hatian drug lord Herve Villafranca to justice. But to do that he needed to be enticed to step foot on American soil.
Bear wound up in Haiti and met Villafranca's sister, Ileana a key player in Villafranca's take down.
The action was intense as Bear infiltrated the drug lord's empire where his undercover role could be exposed at any time.
Editing encompassed several missing, extra, misspelled and wrong words but isn't terrible.
I enjoyed this story and recommend it.

Vigilant Reader Book Reviews.
Surrogate by Regis P. Sheehan is a chillingly real story of the nexus between illegal drugs and terrorism. It reads as if it was ripped from the daily news. Although, there are a large number of digressions as the local history of places or organizations is given, this only slows the flow of reading a tad. The story would still be entertaining without them, but they weren’t unappreciated.
All in all, an entertaining read.
I look forward to reading what new adventures Mike Bishop will encounter.
