Thrillers (Action Adventure)
Ultimate Escalation by Randall Krzak.
Punjabi militants seek to distance themselves from Indian and Pakistani dominance and interference. With the dissolution of British India in 1947, families were ripped apart as the Punjabi region was split between the two countries. Limited attacks within each country caused further persecution and heartache.
The militants have no idea how to achieve their desires–until the appearance of Vladimir Aleksandrovich Nikolaev, a disgraced Spetsnaz colonel. He offers the militants a means to spark a conflict between the two nuclear powers.
Russian subs sold on the black market and manned by Iranian and Russian sailors will surface off the coasts of the two countries and destroy Karachi and Mumbai. Propaganda machines will levy accusations against each country, leading to escalation of hostilities, pushing the countries to the brink of nuclear war.
The Bedlam organization fields their three teams to counter the violence and seek to restore calm before it’s too late. Will they be successful, or will South Asia become a smoking ruin?
Review by Don S and TeamGolfwell: 5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed this book.
I enjoyed reading “Ultimate Escalation” by Randall Krzak, who in my opinion, is a highly intelligent and fascinating writer and a retired U.S. Army veteran and senior civil servant, and that in my opinion, makes his books real, exciting, and adventuresome. I have been a fan of his books with great action stories for some time.
The author writes professionally, clearly, and with great descriptions. I enjoy the way this thrilling author puts you right into the scene and exciting action. For example, here is a brief excerpt,
“Three gunmen burst through the door and ran into the dining room, firing their weapons.
One of the eight screamed as a bullet pierced his upper left side. He clutched his chest as he fell.
The others with pistols returned fire, while another threw a knife, catching one of the attackers in the chest.
Ajit grabbed Vladimir’s arm. “Come! We must flee. Hurry, before we are doomed.”
“What about the others?” Vladimir shouted over the onslaught, crawling out of the room.
“They can take care of themselves.” Ajit scampered through a small living area on all fours, forced open a reinforced outer door, and ran for the back wall, Vladimir and Mishka a step behind.
Vladimir helped Ajit and Mishka climb, cutting himself on the shards of glass embedded along the top of the wall. Blood streaked down his hand as Vladimir pulled a PPS pistol from under his jacket. As he aimed at a gunman exiting the building, a blow struck his right shoulder.”
I also liked the pace of this captivating story that is told at varying paces going from a comfortable pace to a faster pace as the action and drama unfold.
In my view, this author also uses an economy of words and communicates the story very well as the intense drama unfolds. He also has a keen knowledge of military weaponry, submarines, and much more making the story highly realistic and exciting.
The characters are distinct and credible, and the dialogue is exceptionally well written in this electrifying story. I also felt the author was also very clever in designing the plot which made me think of what Winston Churchill once said, “Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.”
Overall, in my view, this high-action story was exceptionally entertaining with unexpected events, twists and turns, bravery, cunning, and much more all leading to a thrilling ending.
After reading the book, it made me reflect and wonder what the future holds in view of human nature and how people react as world tension increases with the Ukraine War, missiles in North Korea, and other major issues, and how other countries respond.
Finally, I liked the way the author gave at the end of the book, the cast of the characters, his autobiography, a list of his other books, and more which adds a lot to the enjoyment of this interesting book.
It was my pleasure to receive a free copy of this extraordinary book but that does not in any way affect my opinions in this review.”
Review by Christmas Angel: 5.0 out of 5 stars War or Peace.
Exciting, pulse- pounding scenes which drop you right into the mayhem. Sterling characters whom anyone would want to have their backs. A creative and superbly crafted novel as each chapter brings you closer to the edge. Highly Recommended.

Colombian Betrayal by Randall Krzak.
Book 1 of 2: A Bruce and Smith Thriller.
Colombian Betrayal tears the cover off the drug trade and exposes the death, and violence behind the twisted connections between governments, revolutionaries, terrorists, and drug lords.
Watch as an unholy alliance is formed when the profits of a Columbian drug lord Olivia Moreno, begin disappearing and deadly new international competitors appear on the horizon. Moreno, head of the Barranquilla Cartel, strikes a deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).
Little does she know she is signing her own death warrant! FARC has a group wanting a foothold in South America—the Islamic State, and she is in the way. On the run, Moreno is captured by a CIA team. She spins a tale to use her money and manpower to destroy ISIS in an effort to save herself. Laws and rules of engagement are meaningless to Moreno, her life and her family are her only concern.
Will the CIA leader fall for her offer? Will team leader AJ Bruce strike a deal to turn the tables on Islamic State? Can she stop them from launching an attack on the United States? Or will she be too late? Is it worth trading control of Afghanistan’s poppy fields with Moreno as a reward for her cooperation? Or is Bruce playing her in an attempt to double-cross her and kill two birds with one stone?
Review by Preston Holtry, author of The Arrius Trilogy: Columbian Betrayal is a fast-paced, action thriller artfully crafted to keep you guessing what’s going to happen next. Sometimes it’s hard to separate the good guys from the bad, and that’s what keeps you turning the pages. The action scenes are realistic, the plot is layered, and the characters are compelling. This will be the first book in the author’s series, and already I’m waiting for the next one.

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!”
