"Eye opening and thrilling, Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky combine combat experience with writing skill and show it off to full advantage."
Eric Moyer lives a double life ~ one in South Carolina as husband and father (although his teenage son is doing his best to pretend he doesn't have one), the other as Sgt. Major Moyer, leader of a highly trained Special Ops unit that travels the world on missions cloaked in secrecy and danger. Colt, Shaq, Junior, Doc and Billy round out Eric's team, each man dedicated to his country and their loved ones, often struggling to balance their families' needs with the demands of their careers.
On a tip off the team is sent to Caracas, Venezuala, where a murder and kidnapping triggers a chain of events that leave the team reeling while their families back home deal once again with the fall out from their abrupt departure to a mission they may not return from.
Sit down and strap
yourself in for this adrenaline filled story of a Special Ops team doing
what they do best. Eye opening and thrilling, Jeff Struecker
and Alton Gansky combine combat experience with writing skill and show
it off to full advantage. I was anxious to get beyond the early chapters
and into the thick of things, but getting to know the individual soldiers,
their nicknames and personalities, is essential to the reading experience.
While this book appealed to my adventurous side it also connected emotionally
as the plight of the soldier's loved ones is also laid bare. Dealing with
what life throws at us all, but having to leave with little or no notice
to places unknown other than the certainty of danger, the sacrifices of
our armed forces and their families is highlighted with accuracy and intensity.
Leavened with humour and spiritual insight, this book will appeal to both
men and women.
Certain Jeopardy is an excellent first foray into fiction by Captain Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky - I hope they will be back with Sgt. Major Eric Moyer's band of brothers soon!
