Leo Maloney Termination Orders Code Name Cobra
This was a great week to read this novel. Leo Maloney and his character Cobra, are very patriotic guys: doing the right thing for the right reasons. The story is emotional, raw and intense. I love a novel that wears its heart on its sleeve, makes for a good read. Let’s get right to the action shall we?
“Leo J. Maloney, former Black Ops contractor, penned this action thriller novel as a quasi-memoir about the dark but arguably necessary side of intelligence that the government officially denies. The book spans the late 1960's through 2001 depicting events witnessed first-hand by the author embodied in the hero, Dan Morgan. It is a masterly blend of Black Ops intrigue interwoven with imaginative sequences of fiction. The reader must guess which accounts are real and which are merely storytelling.
TERMINATION ORDERS: Code Name Cobra races the reader through a twisting plotline, populated by memorable characters who make their way through a tangled web of ethical questions, personal priorities, and suspense. The storyline is comprised of counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and target reconnaissance, in a crescendo of events set across three continents from a fireside ambush at a Kandahar village pig roast, to the vast inner halls of the CIA, to a window-ledge view through a sniper scope aimed at Gaddafi in Libya. “
I am going to have the good fortune to interview Mr. Maloney on The G-ZONE , my blogtalk radio show, Friday, May 13th. I think it is going to be one intense and interesting conversation. Do I have questions? You bet! Let’s get back to the novel shall we: Leo Maloney puts his character Cobra into a situation that only he can solve. The action is quick, moving, and intense. The important part of the read for me was not so much the plotline or the conspiracy that he has his character involved in No, no, no, it was the way he presented it, the manner in which he brought it to me: raw, uncensored, and totally unfiltered. I don’t know if a “Traditional“ Publisher would have touched this, given its contents. For me that made it that much more compelling and interesting.
