This is the perfect time for Dale Brown’s existing fan base as well as new readers to be introduced to a brand new hero called Jason Richter. The plot is explosive and ruthless and without doubt Richter is one hell of a character. It’s as action-packed a story as I’ve read in a long while. In a word, it’s awesome.

Similar this month: Chris Ryan, Robert Ludlum.
Comparison: Patrick Robinson, Andy McNab, Tom Clancy.

If you like Dale Brown you might also like to read books by Patrick Robinson, Andy McNab and Tom Clancy.

Act of War by Dale Brown

A ruthless group of petroleum company owners known as the Consortium, are financing an international terrorist organisation, their mission is to stage a series of attacks around the world in an effort to destabilise the global economy and profit from sky rocketing oil prices.

Introducing an exciting new character, Jason Richter is set to be Dale Brown's most exhilarating creation to date. Coming with all the explosive action that fans have come to expect, Act of War cannot fail to enlist a whole new army of fans.

Reviews

Clancys got serious company.
New York Daily News

When a former pilot with years of experience turns his hand to writing thrillers you can take their authenticity for granted. His writing is exceptional and the dialogue, plots and characters are first-class far too good to be missed.
Sunday Mirror
