To enter this giveaway simply post a comment about someone you love who is in the military. What do they do? Are they stationed overseas or here in the USA? I will pick a winner next Sunday, July 5th (I'll be on vacation in Las Vegas so hopefully I won't forget this! If I do, forgive me, please.)
I'll go first. My brother is in the Coast Guard and is stationed in Washington DC. He's a pretty high ranking officer. My nephew just joined the Air Force in the fall of 2008 and he's MP and is already TDY and stationed in Iraq. I also have many friends who have husbands who are in intelligence, special ops, or communications. I live near the training center of the USA for military intelligence. If you want to read an awesome book that portrays the area where I live check out Mark Andrew Olsen's book Ulterior Motives. It was amazing. But for now, let's focus on the book at hand, Certain Jeopardy!
About the book:
Six American men live behind a protective facade, their real work hidden from neighbors and friends. Different in countless ways, they are intimately the same in one: at any moment their lives can be altered with a phone call, and their actions may change the world. They are Special Ops. And one team's mission is about to hit certain jeopardy status when the discovery of an Al Qaeda base in Venezuela becomes secondary to thwarting the transport of a nuclear weapons expert from that training camp to Iran.
Informed by the true combat experience of Captain Jeff Struecker and finessed by award-winning novelist Alton Gansky, Certain Jeopardy is an immersing and pulsating fictional account of what really happens at every level of a stealth engagement: the physical enemy encounter, the spiritual war fought within a soldier, and the emotional battles in families back at home.
I've read the first 8 chapters and can say this book is great! If you enjoy military thrillers and books that include military intelligence and war games, this is the book for you. I know I'm going to finish it for sure.
