Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A frighteningly feasible plot underlines the power ambition and ruthlessness of determined men in a non-stop action thriller with a cracking ending. It is very good indeed, keeping hold of your attention throughout.

Comparison: Stephen Coonts, Patrick Robinson, Dale Brown.
Similar this month: Paul Carson, Andy McNab.

Synopsis

Force Protection by Gordon Kent

Alan Craik and his US Navy battlegroup confront two new enemies: international, organized crime and a massive storm at sea.

Alan is back on the aircraft carrier USS Thomas Jefferson, using the latest radar technology to monitor smuggling craft in the Indian Ocean between Pakistan and Somalia. As a break he is sent ashore to assess the port of Mombasa for a forthcoming liberty visit.

While the battlegroup remains at sea because of a brewing storm, he arrives in Mombasa safely. But he is hardly on the beach when a US Navy support ship is blown up at the dockside. Chaos ensues, and further acts of violence. Soon – cut off from support by the storm at sea – Alan is charged with the task of tracking down the faceless people behind these apparently motiveless terrorist attacks.

About the Author

Gordon Kent
Gordon Kent is the pseudonym of a father-and-son writing team, both of whom have considerable experience in the US Navy. The idea for ‘Night Trap’ was born out of a series of fishing and hiking trips together.

Their interests, many of which are shared, include military matters, Africa, antiques, book collecting, war gaming and theatre. Both now live in the USA.
