TOPICS: Books/Literature; Military/Veterans; Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: bookreview; efad; travismcgee
i just finished the last book in the trilogy, and i'm here to tell you... it really doesn't get any better than this.

my only regret is there were only three books and i eagerly await his TNB(the next book)

Click the book covers to go to his website, www.EnemiesForeignAndDomestic.com.

and don't buy from Amazon, but direct from the author so you can get a personally autographed edition so someday, you can say, I knew him back when...

that is all

Definitely some of the best reading I’ve been through in the past 10 years or more!

Thanks mucho. In the google world, every post leads to references and links and so on.

My next novel will also be set in a near-future socialist semi-dystopia, but otherwise it will be very different. I’m writing it first person POV, and it will be shorter, around 300 pages.

Agree, buy from Matt. I read all three and can’t name my favorite! Action packed and well aligned to current politics. Plan on losing sleep because you can’t put the book down. Happened to me with all three books!

gotta tell ya, i kinda had a lump in my throat a couple times... like when the Patriots put their hands on the Bible/Beret/Flag as well as when the the flag officers realized it was time to cross the Rubicon

again, well done... well done indeed.

I’m really plowing ahead on the next novel. It’s going to be a barn burner, I promise.

Interesting......Obama is both a foreign and domestic enemy. Do they need to be read in any particular order?

The next book will be set mainly in the Bahamas and South Florida. Here are some old pics I recently scanned and hosted on my brand-new facebook page. Sort of a teaser for the new book.

Whoops, the above was meant to ping you over here. Well, one more then.

Twenty years ago, on the DC-3 dope plane at Norman's Cay.

Google "Norman's Cay cocaine cartel Joe Lehder," it's a great story. Norman's is a small island in the Exumas SE of Nassau. It was a drug runway during the early 1980s. They paid of the PM of the Bahamas, but word still go out and they were run off. Joe Lehder was extradited from Colombia and is doing life. In the movie "Blow" about a famous smuggler played by Johnny Depp, Lehder is the guy the author of Blow met in an easy club fed type prison (Allenwood PA, Liddy was also there same time for a while I think.) They hatched the Bahamas connection using Norman's Cay. It was infamous for a while. The plane is still there, but in worse shape. We were there on our old sailboat circa 1988 or so.

I googled it myself out of curiousity, and found this outstanding blog report by some sailors who were recently there. Almost nothing is left of the infamous DC-3, you can see them at the link.

Yep, sure is. Circa 1988, during our decade long honeymoon BC, before children.
