College professor Henry Shaw, seething over being relegated to a small, backwater college in Fayetteville, NC, has decided to betray his country and join IS. His IS masters have accepted him, and ordered him to return home to foment terror, and to organize an IS terror cell in the very heart of the home to some of America’s most elite anti-terror forces. When he begins his campaign of terror, he runs afoul of ex-Delta Force commander, Bob Burke, retired from the army and now CEO of a small telecoms company.
As bombs began to go off and people die, Burke and his elite band of brothers find themselves up against a man who loves killing, but even more troubling, someone is using him as a distraction from an even more horrendous act. Duty gets Burke involved, but when Shaw kidnaps his wife and daughter, it becomes personal.
Burke’s Revenge by William F. Brown is book three in the Bob Burke thriller series, and it continues in the same vein; non-stop action, believable characters and scenarios, and high stakes. The author knows his military weapons and tactics, but even more important, knows how to tell a good story that keeps you on the edge of your chair.
I received a free copy of this book.
I give Brown five stars for this one.
