Combat actions continue in the sequels as the United States military fight a war on the Korean Peninsula, leaving the few military and Navy-Marine Corps units in the Mediterranean and the European theater to resolve the war in terrorism crisis erupting across the North African littoral with the aim of destroying America and subjugating Europe to Islamic terrorist control of the Mediterranean.

The reader chases twisting, gut-wrenching action with a surprise ending that shows once again this author, who just happens to be an active duty Navy Captain, uncanny foresight to show what the future may hold.”


According to the book description of Joint Task Force France, “Over the waters of the Atlantic off the coast of West Africa, a routine Navy exercise turns into a mysterious disaster when a formation of Air Force F-16 fighters simply vanish.

When a secret mission to destroy the weapon goes wrong, it leads to a covert battle along the coast of Africa that could bring the world to war.”


According to the book description of Joint Task Force Africa, “A Navy EP-3E is hit by a missile and before the pilot can recover control of the aircraft four aircrew bail out over West Africa, landing in the middle of an African civil war. It is a fast-pace story as Admiral Holman races to rescue the Sailors before they are killed or captured.”

Meanwhile NICS agents Richard Zeichner and Kevin Gainer question the presence of a Chinese agent against the growing demands of Washington Headquarters.”

According to the book description of Final Run, “The Cold War is fought on every front. Under the seas, America has the only nuclear submarine and the Soviet Union is hurrying to deploy their first nuke. Old diesel-engine subs are dying out and the USS Squallfish it old school-as is her Captain.


Chad Shipley earned his stripes under the Pacific-as Japanese depth charges exploded around him. Now, he takes the Squallfish on a dangerous mission that may mean the end of him and his submarine as he is ordered to infiltrate the heart of the Soviet Northern Fleet to spy on the enemy’s nuclear sub capabilities.


But, the first Soviet nuclear sub is already underway, and has found its prey the Squallfish. Against an opponent as clever and cunning as himself, Shipley and the crews of the Squallfish must rise to the battle to survive-or sink into the crushing depths.”
