BLURB from Goodreads
In the early 1960's, Tim Kelly's Coast Guard career takes him to Galveston. Hoping to put his father's death at the hands of a union busting thug behind him. Kelly transfers to San Francisco where he meets Brenda Conrad and clashes with an overbearing and sadistic executive officer. Given a choice between courts martial and combat duty in Vietnam, he chooses Vietnam.

After receiving the Silver Star Medal for gallantry in combat during an action where three of his friends are killed in action by our own Air Force. Kelly releases his rage in an Air Force officer's club, earning him a less than honorable discharge.

Returning to the U.S. with the stigma of a less than honorable discharge, Kelly embarks on a new career as an undercover narcotics agent. After his rescue from the drug cartel when his cover is blown, he plans to marry Brenda, but before the wedding can take place Brenda and her best friend the daughter of the Governor of Texas are kidnapped and spirited to the cartel's secret island base off the coast of Yucatan.

My daughter "Jeanz" received this book from the author in exchange for my reading & reviewing it for her blog. "Jeanz" will no doubt read it at a later date as she has so many books to read and review at the moment.
So my daughter knows my reading tastes quite well and I have to say I enjoyed the book. I picked it up and read it within 48 hours. I've been told by "Jeanz" not to reveal any more of the plot then what is said in the Blurb. The pace of the book is a good fairly fast pace and it works really well. Though the pace and flow kind of stalls slightly towards the end where things slowed down a bit too much for my taste. It felt as the book was building up and up and up then all of a sudden it leveled out.
I think that's all I can say really as the rest you would want to know is in the blurb itself.
So did I enjoy this book? On the whole yes I did.  Would I recommend this book? Yes, though I'd say it would be more appealing to the male population. Would I read other books by this Author? If I saw them on the book store shelf I would certainly pick this Authors books to take a closer look at them. I'd also recommend them to friends who read too.
