What people are saying

Faced paced! Move over James Bond, Alex Morgan is on the case!! If you like Clive Cussler’s characters and Jason Bourne, you’ll love the guys at Intrepid.
— Chanda Curry, Defender review on Amazon
Action packed with a lot of thoughtful thinking ongoing. Alex is a survivor but has a lot luggage he takes with him. Can’t wait for the sequel or the 4th book in the series.
— Avenger review on Amazon
Loved the first 2 books, just downloaded the next two, can’t wait to start reading. Loved all the exciting characters, the pages came alive, if you love adventure these are the books for you.
— Barbara Lucas, Hunter review on Amazon
The combat scenes are delivered in efficient brutality, the stunts akin to the finest Bond.
