Book Summary

It’s 2010, and pirate attacks around the Horn of Africa are at their height. The West has yet to start sending naval escorts to protect the ships and freighters that ply the sea lanes along this dangerous coast. The US President is worried, though. He wants to protect US shipping.

A Presidential ‘Black’ Executive Order is released, and a small contingent of US Navy SEALs are placed on key US ships traversing the area with orders to repel attackers at all costs. The use of extreme force is authorised as a final option, but these missions must be kept secret. The public won’t accept the blatant murder of pirates so only ships where the captain and crew sign a secrecy agreement will be protected.

Newly promoted Navy SEAL Lieutenant John Deacon leads a small team of dedicated warriors determined to stop the pirates in their tracks, but the pirates soon learn of the defenders and change tactics.

Can Deacon and his team stop the pirates and protect the ships while keeping their mission secret?

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific short story, absolutely gripping
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 August 2017
Having read the first two John Deacon books, I was thrilled to find another one, albeit a short story, but it is no worse for that. I read it straight through in one sitting and like the others, it grabs you from the first line and doesn't let you go until the dramatic climax. Great reading. I look forward to the next one!

About the Author

Born and raised in England, I was always an avid reader. I've worked in Europe and travelled extensively. I have written various sailing articles and had them published in magazines. Having lived and worked in the Middle East for a number of years, I believe I have a good understanding of the region. I used that experience to write my first full novel 'The Jaws of Revenge' quickly followed by my second, 'Terror of the Innocent', and then the third, a short story called 'High Seas Hijack'.

Soon after, 'Crossing a Line' was published, with 'The Price of Deceit' coming out at the end of 2018, and 'RED ICE' in late 2019. My latest and greatest, 'The Project', was launched in January 2021 and is ready and available and receiving excellent reviews.

All of my books contain strong elements of fact and star US Navy SEAL John Deacon and some of his colleagues from the Pentagon.

More recently I lived in New Zealand for many years and am currently settled, with my family, in France.
