olympus rises

Staff Sergeant Joseph Braddock is about to go home from his post at Firebase Foxtrot on the Afghan northern border. But first he must complete one more mission. So begins a tale which is part action, part adventure, and part science fiction.

As the story unwinds Joseph and the men in his command face an extraordinary enemy, one not only well-trained and disciplined but also equipped with advanced weaponry never seen on a battlefield before.

Plus, Olympus has its own goals, and they have nothing to do with the sergeant or his pressing wish, which is to get his men safely back to base. And their opposing interests result in several pitched battles as the two forces fight for dominance.

This book is outside my normal mystery genre, but the cover drew me in. I’m glad it did, because I enjoyed the tale.
