Dangerous Alliance by Randall Krzak.
United Nations’ sanctions are crippling North Korea. China has turned her back on her malevolent partner. The North Korean military machine is crumbling, unable to function. Oil reserves are minimal and the government seeks new alliances.
Cargo and tourist ships are disappearing along the Somali and Kenyan coastline at an alarming rate. Speeches abound, but inaction emboldens Al-Shabab to seek their next prize: Kenya. The terror organization controls land but requires weapons.
Bedlam Bravo team leader Colonel Trevor Franklin (Ret.) leads the small international team into East Africa. Tempers flare as the team is embroiled in a political quagmire. The axis must be stopped to avert an international crisis but at what cost?
Review by Russell F. Moran, award-winning, best-selling novelist, author of The Gray Ship: “Like a gourmet chef, the author keeps a bunch of pots on the stove, cooking them up to a wonderful feast at the end, when all the sub-plots come together in a terrific ending. A true thriller.”
Review by M.D. Neu, author of The Calling and The Reunion: “Author Randall Krzak masterfully takes characters and settings most people are not familiar with and creates a rich story with sympathetic characters and lush backgrounds. These are not places most people would tread, so it’s nice to learn about them through the eyes of a man who has personal knowledge of them. Randall’s amazing mix of intrigue and suspense will keep you turning page after page.”
“I liked Dangerous Alliance by Randall Krzak, from the first sentence of this book which reads: “In the moonless night, the target floated in the harbor’s dark water, anchored fore and aft. A faint hiss broke the silence as climbing ropes and grappling hooks sailed into the air from Plummet NS50 Silent Launchers. Within moments, a sharp tug secured each hook to a quarter deck railing on the cruise ship, two each on the port side, the starboard, and from the stern.”
Review by TeamGolfwellcom: Needless to say, I was hooked. This brilliant author not only captures you with strong dramatic action brimming with suspense but also excellently and creatively weaves this intriguing story to keep you guessing and wondering what is going to happen next. His previous book, The Kurdish Connection was amazing, and I was even more impressed with the mind of this writer after reading Dangerous Alliance. Highly Recommended!”
