According to the book description
of Adak, “Former EOD officer Brick Revloc is a savvy, scrappy little guy with a penchant for
getting into — and out of – tough situations around the world. From the Gulf War to a remote Aleutian island,
he uses resourcefulness and his bomb disposal expertise to thwart Iraqi terrorists and North Korean special operations forces.”
According to the book description of Cubane,
“It's 1997, and former Army bomb disposal officer Brick Revloc-a savvy, scrappy little guy-is in trouble again.
While investigating an old military firing range deep in the north Maine woods, he stumbles upon a training camp where members
of the Irish Republican Army are preparing for a campaign of terror on the British mainland. With the help of a sophisticated
American businesswoman, they are able to manufacture the world's most powerful high explosive. With his friends held captive
and subjected to torture, Revloc quickly acts to thwart the IRA's plans and later escapes to convince the FBI that the
reign of violence must be stopped.”
