"This is a gritty, no-holds-barred thriller and adventure tale, full of fast--paced action and international intrigue. And, there's even a bit of a love interest weaved into the tale. As a bonus, the author's mastery of combat tactics, advanced weaponry, and battlefield situations adds invaluable realism throughout this well-written work of fiction -- that could just as easily be a true account of how the war on drugs is being played out in real life. Five stars to The End Game. You'll be rooting for the good guys all the way to the novel's exciting conclusion -- and, you'll hold the main characters in your memory long after that.
